Hearing God Seminar

Hearing God is something that is at the core of everything we do here in every ministry, and it needs to be the core of all parts of our lives as Christians! The Hearing God Seminar is a very practical course for those who want to hear God’s voice for the first time or grow in hearing. In this Seminar you will learn and experience that God still speaks today and that His children still hear His voice. We will…

Downtown Revitalization – Christian, please read

Slogan for a recent initiative called Energize Downtown. I’m a pastor in Fort St. John. Have been for 11 years, and frankly, I’m tired of the never-ending stream of negative horsepoop that is spoken over our city, even if it’s only about the weather (how many times do you have to complain about the cold – If you don’t like it, well, leave or something). And of course, the new plan on deck to energize our downtown core is getting…

Building Blog #19 – Evangel as a Third Place

Evangel's new facility on 100 Street will likely be known as Evangel Place, a multi-use facility that will serve as a "third" place in our community.           How amiable and warm is your dwelling place. ~ Ps. 84:1 Build the House – Embrace a City has been an incredible journey of discovery for our church community. Learning how to stretch beyond our comfort zones, experiencing a new kind of transience in the in-between, practicing patience with…

Evangel and FSJ Alliance Together?!

On July 6, Evangel and the FSJ Alliance Church will be combining their Sunday gatherings for the month of July. Two services: 9:30 & 11am at the Alliance building on 99th Ave. There are several reasons why this is an incredible opportunity: 1) We have a great meeting place for Sundays while we finish our building. This will be a most-welcome-change from the school gymnasium (though we've so appreciated using it – thanks to SD60), and we'll get to hang out with friends too!…

Following Jesus: Brilliant but Dangerous

Following Jesus, is the counter-intuitive, but also brilliantly intuitive approach to life, where you actually believe that you can hear God’s voice and you follow that inner sense of guidance (Holy Spirit), wherever it may lead.  All the while shoring up confirmation in your life by walking in friendship and community with like-minded people, lining up with the unerring plumb-line of God’s Word, and connecting like a body-part to the local church.   But know this, the path is dangerous, narrow, and…

No WAY It’s Worth It For a Bigger Building!

I just spent the weekend with a number of great friends who lead churches just like Evangel.  It was a time of encouragement, learning, and accountability: as each of us shared our story – the victories and the struggles.  When my turn came, I shared how  my number one tension in pastoring these days has been coping with the size of the project we are now in (Build the House).  Of course that included accommodating growth, meeting deadlines, raising finances, interim…

Evangel Downtown – The Dream

A year ago we sat down with some of the movers and shakers of our community, and entertained the idea of having a church in the downtown core at 10040 – 100 St.  At 3 Sunday morning services (to accommodate our growing church family), we really needed to consider a larger facility.  This building came up as a possible solution to a growing church.               "Does a church like Evangel fit the direction of…
