Paul Godin, Chair, & Rachelle Godin, Director
Paul & Rachelle Godin are honoured to have the opportunity to help with the College’s growth. After their oldest son attended the College’s summer Film Program in 2014, they saw how this unique school could fill a niche by producing filmmakers who are well-formed in faith and reason.
Paul and Rachelle met at the University of Alberta in 1990. They married 2 years later, and graduated in 1994; Paul received his B.Sc. in Forestry and Rachelle received her B.Ed. Paul began work in the forest industry in Valemount, BC and continued for 15 years, culminating in his position as Area Superintendent for a large forest products company in Whitecourt, AB. On the side, Paul and Rachelle purchased residential properties, which they renovated and rented out over a period of 12 years. This led Paul to a change in career, and he became a mortgage specialist in 2009. Rachelle began home schooling in 1999 and she became a home school facilitator in 2012. In 2013, they sold their home in Whitecourt and bought land near Westlock, where they now farm full time. They have 9 children and have been home schooling for 16 years.

Deacon Kenneth Noster, Director
“Art has always reflected culture and it also influences culture. It is time for art to reflect its very source, our Lord Jesus Christ, and draw our culture to Him.”
Kenneth Noster has worked as an actor, director, and teacher in Theatre and related arts since 1973. His acting experience is diverse, including: Classical, Modern, Musical Theatre, Mime, Story Theatre, and Film. He has directed traditional theatre and mime and has experienced a diversity of opportunities to teach his craft. He and his wife, Marlane, ran a touring Mime Theatre, travelling across much of Canada for eleven years. Witnessing first-hand the many challenges to faith and morals experienced by artists, Ken and Marlane perceived a need to develop a school where students could learn the arts in the context of their faith and right thinking. A solid program of training and personal formation would make it possible for artists to work and thrive amidst the challenges of our culture. Living Water College of the Arts is the result of a decade of intensive work and personal investment in response to that need.
Marlane Noster, Director
Early in her acting career, Marlane realized that Art was being used as a means of attracting commercial gain more than an effort to present truth, and she recognized that art with integrity required independent artistic production. To this end, she became the co-founder and Administrative Director of Mime-Light Theatre, touring Canada for twelve years. Her vision for the source and purpose of all Art has helped shape Living Water College of the Arts. She is a founder and current office manager of WISDOM Home Schooling.
