Equipping churches for successful evangelism

ReAwaken Leadership Seminars

“I was inspired by the seminar in Maple Ridge with new ideas. Our church is going to implement some things you talked about.”

– Bob McDougall
Member of Living Way Foursquare Church
Maple Ridge, BC

The ReAwaken leadership seminar offers you innovative approaches to outreach, and new ways to make evangelism a vital part of your congregation.

“These seminars are underrated,” said Ron Maclean, senior pastor of Winnipeg’s Gateway Church. “There’s a lot of great information in them and most churches need all the help they can get.”

MacLean, whose church hosted a ReAwaken seminar, previously participated in BGEA of Canada’s Rock The River evangelistic outreach in Winnipeg in 2012. He noted most churches “don’t have equipping evangelists on staff, so I’m really glad we did it. It was very helpful for our staff.”
