This Is Us

Massiel Davila-Ferrer’s origin story begins in Managua, Nicaragua. At a young age, her family moved to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, where she grew up. In 2012, Massiel joined the team at College Heights Seventh-day Adventist Church, and in August 2019, she accepted the invitation to serve as chaplain for Burman University, joyfully tackling a new experience in ministry without having to pack a moving truck. During her time in Lacombe, she met and married her teammate and best friend for life, Junior Ferrer, who also serves on the campus of Burman University.

Massiel enjoys reading, writing, watching things that happen on stages, traveling, and good meals with good people. She loves words, the Word, people, and God, and seeks to spend her life bringing these things together.
