Advance Evangelists Summit

Called and Commissioned

I am looking forward to hosting the Advance Evangelists Summit at Foothills Alliance Church, in Calgary on February 15–17, 2023.   

I am writing to invite you to join me and to bring your team members and friends who have a heart for making Jesus known.

It promises to be a special time of mutual sharpening and encouragement for those of us stirred “to do the work of an evangelist.” You can do the work of an evangelist on a university campus, as a church planter, a youth worker, on a street corner, on a stage, in a pub, online, or on your patio. You might share the gospel in front of a crowd, or delight in gossiping the gospel over coffee one-on-one.  

Whatever the evangelism expression—we all need fresh fire and inspiration!

Please plan to join me for a special time of encouragement and equipping. We will gather under the theme, “Called and Commissioned.” Some of us are graced by God with the gift of evangelist—we do want to identify and encourage Canadian evangelists...

However, we are all commissioned by Jesus to show his love and share his gospel. God’s crazy big dream remains the same: the whole Church taking the whole Gospel to the whole world!
