Shane & Kathi Temple
Both Shane and Myself (Kathi) were raised in Fernie B.C.  We met at our local church youth program and were married in 1995.  It has been a true blessing to raise our two children Chad 7 and Devin Marie 5 in our own home town on Shane’s family farm.  Our hobbies involve anything outside, which includes Shane’s motorized toys, hobby farming and being involved with our local church.  We have led Fernie Christian Youth Group (FCYG) since 1996.  We are passionate about our Creator and His Son Jesus Christ.  Our vision is that this generation will know His love, blessings and unchanging truths.
Over the years we have had many Christians encourage and help us in this vision - including those in the youth group who matured into young adults.
about the program
FCYG is non-denominational, providing an open invitation to all High School students.  Currently we are supported by the Fernie Fellowship Baptist Church as well as our own church family - Trinity Pentecostal Tabernacle.
The youth group meets each Friday night, enjoying a variety of games, bible studies, music, & fundraising.  Special Events include a Fall Retreat, Spring Break Missions, Youth Convention-Edmonton, and a pre-summer camp out.
our mission
  • To provide high school students an opportunity to fellowship and encourage one another in their Christian walk
  • To have students experience spiritual life, growth, and victory through the teaching of God’s Word.
  • Seeing the Holy Spirit transforming them into fully committed followers of Jesus Christ.
  • Enabling Christian teens to demonstrate the Christian life and share it with family, friends, and peers.
FCYG Director
"As pastor of Trinity Pentecostal Tabernacle, I highly recommend Fernie Christian Youth Group to both youth and parents alike.

"The leadership, Kathi and Shane Temple, are members of Trinity that I have known for almost twelve years. They are passionate about leading youth to Christ and nurturing / discipling them in sound biblical values and principles while, at the same time, providing a fun and safe environment for the youth."

about the leaders
"At Fernie Baptist Church we know how formative the High School years are;  they truly are 'crossroad' years.  This is why we are so thankful for Shane and Kathi Temple and their leadership of Fernie Christian Youth Group.
The Temples have a deep, sincere love for teens, and are committed to helping them know God's love and walk in it."
