Faytene has been in full-time charitable work for over 25 years.


She began by serving extensively on the inner-city streets of Vancouver. During this time, she led street outreaches and equipping schools, aiming at helping the poor, homeless and/or drug addicted.


In her first two years of full-time non-profit service, she also functioned as city-wide director of Neighbour Link Vancouver, a ministry of World Vision Canada, which mobilizes volunteers to serve the needy in their community in practical ways (food delivery, visitation, home care etc.). During these years, Neighbour Link experienced exponential growth, with many being mobilized to serve the poor in the city of Vancouver.


In 2000, after being healed of a terminal illness (autoimmune hepatitis), she transitioned to overseas humanitarian work. During this period, she served in Liberia, West Africa, for seven months under Hope for the Nations in a rescue mission for malnourished children. She spearheaded the establishment of a mercy ministry and church.

After her return, Faytene devoted herself to pioneering national prayer movements, hosting gatherings with tens of thousands participating in person and online. These gatherings have taken place in Canada and two have been international (Hollywood & Israel). She helped found 4 My Canada, a national non-profit which equips Canadians in civic engagement and democratic responsibility and has also led women's gatherings in Canada focused on empowering women to impact their communities for good.  In the last decades, she has emerged as a respected national leader, public speaker and talk show host.



Faytene is the executive director of V-Kol Media Ministries and the host of Faytene TV.  

She is married to Robert Grasseschi.  They have two beautiful children and reside in New Brunswick.
