Dan Lamos – Kings Church

Note: Video coming soon

Dan has served the Church in Atlantic Canada in prayer and pastoral ministry for the past three decades. Most of those years have been invested in the ministry of Kings Church in Quispamsis, New Brunswick. The Holy Spirit moved on Dan’s heart in his early years of youth ministry concerning a revival move of God arising in Canada.

Currently, Dan is responsible for Prayer and Crisis Care Ministry at Kings Church but also has been part of leadership teams for several regional and national prayer gatherings and initiatives over the years. Prayer has consistently been the furnace for Dan’s ministry in Atlantic Canada through Kings Church. He is excited to share their prayer story and how partnering with heaven through prayer is transforming them and their region.

Inspiring a Passion for Prayer

Billy Graham once said that the most important steps in preparing for evangelism are: prayer, prayer, prayer.

We believe prayer for spiritual transformation is critical at this point in Canada’s history—perhaps more than ever.

Still, it seems most pastors we speak with agree: while COVID and unsettling world events have increased interest in prayer, there is still a missing sense of urgency for prayer among congregants.

But the Bible teaches that “the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding” can be ours when we pray—and that “the prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working” (Philippians 4:7 and James 5:16, ESV).

Our team looks forward to seeing you online! Please email if you have any questions.

Let’s make prayer a priority in our churches!

Chris Puhach – Church Renewal

Chris was radically saved in 1996, and entered full-time ministry in 2000. He served as a pastor for 18 years at Southland Church in Steinbach, Manitoba, a church that saw considerable growth attributed in large part to its commitment to prayer. For the past two years, he has been blessed with the privilege of ministering as the North American Director for Church Renewal, a “discipleship movement to renew and equip the church for Christ’s mission.” Chris’ main hobby is evangelistic ministry in Winnipeg, and in 2020 God whispered to him a new lifetime goal to explore the depths of prayer and the riches of Christ. Chris has been married to his wife Carolynn for 23 years, and they have two children who passionately love Jesus—Ashley and Joshua.
