Set Free Retreat

NEXT RETREAT: Fall 2017   God has called His people to live righteous lives and be His light in this world. We cannot possibly accomplish His calling with sin in our lives. It acts as a veil that dims our light and affects every part of our walk with Christ. Set Free! Retreat is a weekend set aside to focus on learning how to deal with sin, hurts, hang-ups and struggles that we all face on a daily basis. Jesus said,…

Advent Conspiracy = TEN WELLS!!

    This Christmas was unique at Evangel for several reasons:   1)  We actually followed the Advent theme   Tradition is outside-the-box for us.  The usual is unusual.  So we ventured out into the unknown and took a shot at what “real” churches do at Christmas: Advent.     Advent simply entails the arrival of a noteworthy individual.  Obviously, that person is Jesus coming into the world that fateful day over 2000 years ago.  The special significance for us,…

Oh boy – I’m dreaming about charitable giving.

Had this crazy dream two weeks ago (been dreaming a lot lately).    SCENE ONE   It’s Sunday afternoon, and I’m reeling from a $900 offering.  And not reeling in a delight, but in panic, for those of you still in the dark ages of paltry giving :).  When you consider that Evangel’s weekly budget (missions, staff, utilities, ministry, buildings) is about $12,000 per week, you can understand the sinking feeling I have in my gut.   SCENE TWO   Scene two…

Celebrative Worship

          One of the values at Evangel is keeping a worshipful atmosphere and attitude at top priority. Specifically right now, Evangel is in a unique season of celebrative worship as we are in the in-between-time while waiting to officially move into the new building on 100st.  As a congregation, Evangel has always loved to have fun, but especially in the last couple months Sunday Morning services have been centred around celebration. The worship leaders have been stoked about picking set…

YES-ware! Going to Kwadacha, BC

A couple months ago a few guys from Evangel, on a skidoo trip, came up with an idea to reach out to the little First Nations community of Kwadacha, one of the most isolated and repressed communities in our province.  This is the story of how that happened.  Jesus willing, on March 13-15 they will lead a team, accompanied by rap artist Fresh IE, for a weekend outreach. Me, along with a couple buddies,recently went for a skidoo ride overnight and ended…

Encountering God in KidCity!

I’ll be totally honest with you: I’m a big time Sci-Fi girl. When we started working on the idea of a futuristic science lab with a time machine and crazy scientists, I was genuinely really giddy! Our main focus: God Encounters! The first week of our theme, we shared our own personal stories of times we encountered the God’s Spirit and encouraged the kids… what is God saying to you? So far, we’ve had time machine visits by such people…

From India back to FSJ

We have so much potential to grow, it's unreal. For the first day that I was in India, we went through orientation. The full day was spent with Steve Stewart, who was leading our team. Orientation sounds pretty lame, especially if you've ever worked in the oil patch where that word basically means that you'll be wasting an hour in front of a lame safety movie. Not so in this case. It started with Steve saying that the goal wasn't for…

What to Expect on Sundays!

What you can be expecting on Sundays at Central Elementary, whether the 9:30 or 11:00 am service: 1.  Holy Spirit It's an atmosphere where the Holy Spirit is given freedom to move, with less time constraints typical of the multiple service scenario.  A season of revival, preparation, and being equipped for the future.  Come with an open heart to encounter, in extraordinary ways, the boat-rocking, fire-baptizing, gift-giving Holy Spirit.   2.  Community What an opportunity to interact with one another,…

Evangel Code: Kids FIRST

Code #10: ** We do handstands in KidCity and rap worship songs on Sunday. ** We are okay with turning ourselves and the whole church upside down to reach the children and youth of our city.  We are a spiritual home for the emerging generation.     No joke.  That’s who we are.     The first major thing Sara and I did, when it came to radically reaching out to our city, was orchestrate a 180 degree flip (or…

The Party Church – Why We Do Party in the Park

People are often surprised to find a church behind what is arguably one of the highlight-events of the calendar year.  Since 2004, Evangel Chapel on 98th Street has been organizing annual PITP events in Fort St. John, investing  literally thousands of dollars and countless volunteer hours into each event.   So why do we do it? It's a good question, and because we've been doing it for the last 10 years, it's easy to miss the point, even for the…

Mexico Blog #6 – Two Great Men

Of all the pictures we snapped over the week in Vicente Gurerro, this one ranks among my favourite because of the two central subjects of the photo:   Asher Motola A Jewish guy who got saved during the Jesus movement in Mexico City, a teacher by trader, and missionary by calling.   For the last few decades he and his wife Suzanne have given their lives to the extension of the Kingdom and spread of the Gospel into Mexico.  He…

A Story: Men’s Early Prayer

Last Wednesday at 6am I gathered at our church with about 20 other guys to pray.  You heard me right, to pray.  The average age is about 23, and as they walk into the building, the anticipation and excitement is more akin to what you'd expect if it was a night at the pub watching a foot-ball game.  We gather towards the front of the main auditorium, just the spot lights are on, creating a warm atmosphere.  Music plays softly…
