We know from history that prior to any of the Great Awakenings, prior to any of the great movements of God around the world – where God suddenly moved and people responded and people came to Christ or their faith was renewed – we know from history and from the writings of people like Dr. J. Edwin Orr that those revivals were proceeded by incredible times of prayer.”

“The reason that we exist as a conference – our mission statement that we processed at Gathering 2014 – is that ‘we exist to multiply Christ-centred churches to see Canada transformed by the good news of Jesus Christ.’ ”

“As we prepare to celebrate Easter this month, I pause to think about the story of unleavened bread.

In Exodus 12, we have that described to us. In verse 17, it says, “Celebrate this Festival of Unleavened Bread, for it will remind you that I brought your forces out of the land of Egypt on this very day” (NLT).”
