“It was an October night in 1994 that DRIME had its first team on the streets of Vancouver. Back then, a handful of university students had an inkling that just maybe God was going to use them and this tool to make some kind of difference. And a difference He truly has made – thousands have met Jesus for the first time, have volunteered around the world and have grown as disciples of Jesus.” – Tanya Price, founder
Tanya Price has a vision to use creative tools of evangelism to share the gospel with the lonely and searching of this world. She shares her dream with friends and fellow students in the cafeteria and dorms of Northwest Baptist College and before long this small group of 10 enthused students begins an outreach ministry on the city streets of Vancouver.
