Angels’ Valley was founded by Jack and Joyce Tipping in 1988 because of a prophetic vision that Jack received while at a Christian retreat in Sorrento, BC. Jack felt God’s presence and experienced what he described as a vision wherein the Angel of the Lord told him what was to be developed on the Land that he and Joyce had purchased some years previously. When he returned back to Edmonton he confirmed it with his Pastor; discussed what it meant; sought God’s blessing; formed a board; and started building. Jack and Joyce had help on the plans for the building; on funds from friends and supporters; on prayer support from their church friends and from complete strangers. They eventually built a home, a cabin and a large retreat centre. Jack and Joyce Tipping were not only the founders but also the Centre “managers” for the next 15 years until they retired and moved to Vancouver Island. Along the way, they ministered to countless people, some of whose stories are told in a small book written by Jack and available at Angels’ Valley. We are indebted to their visionary leadership, selfless dedication and warmth of relationships.

Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it. Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.

Psalm 96:11-12
