Caleb Delamont, The Exchange Church
Caleb is a worship leader and songwriter from Calgary, Alberta. For the past 20 years he has been leading worship in churches large and small. His favourite moments are leading people in singing songs about God. Caleb will say,"When time seems to stand still and we get lost in the wonder of a God who is impossible to describe in words. As indescribable as God is, I love trying to portray even just a small part of His character through music. At the heart of it all is pointing people to Jesus."
Caleb is currently serving at The Exchange Church in Calgary. Husband to Lyndsey and Dad to 2 year old Rosie and twins Jack and Penny who were born in April, 2021
Melayne Shankel, St. Albert Alliance Church
Melayne is a worship leader, songwriter and Soul & Gospel artist from Edmonton, AB. She has been leading worship for over 20 years and has been serving on staff at St. Albert Alliance for the past 6 years. She frequently collaborates with a close-knit community of local musicians and also serves on the steering committee for WCD Worship Pastors and on the Board of Directors for the Gospel Music Association of Canada. She has performed with a wide- range of artists in spaces large and small but nothing is comparable to leading people in worship and steeping in the beauty and splendour of our God.
Melayne says,“ One of my favourite things is to create a musical space where people can meet Jesus and worship Him in awe and wonder. Whether it’s leading people at a conference, intimate worship night or on a Sunday morning - leading people in songs that connect with the heart of the Father gives me so much joy."
Melayne is excited to lead alongside Caleb and the team for this year’s Prayer Retreat.
