From a young age, Pamela Aramburu was interested in two things – telling great stories and having an impact. At 17, she talked her way into hosting the weekend morning show on Calgary’s Shine FM. Two years later, she started reporting, producing, and directing stories for TV network news. Recognizing the impact she longed to see, and the only stories worth telling were Jesus stories, she joined Centre Street Church as their broadcast team lead where she eventually led the communications and technical teams for one of Canada's largest churches while serving on their senior leadership team. Now, as the Associate National Director with Alpha Canada, Pamela is passionate about helping people become part of Jesus’ story.
