Open Door—Pacific Region #

This past weekend, Stan was scheduled to lead an Open-Door Retreat in Maple Ridge. We considered postponing the event, but we felt that going ahead with the Retreat would be a unique way to honour Stan’s memory. Special thanks to Mark & Sandi Gordon and Melonie Boser for leading the retreat in spite of their own personal grief.

The weekend was very powerful and the presence of the Lord was palpable throughout the Retreat as 10 new members were welcomed into the ACOP family.

Congratulations to Marcus Rios—Enlisted, Grey Mendez—Commissioned, Olivia-Ann McDonnell—Commissioned, Victor Dela Serna—Commissioned, Shazia Sarfraz—Ordained, Ikechukwu Chukuka—Ordained, John Martin—Commissioned, Dianne Leighton—Ordained, Wayne Leighton—Ordained, and Dustin Little—Commissioned.

Pentecostal World Conference October 12-14, 2022 #

The 26th PWC will bring together representatives of the Pentecostal movement from around the world for a three-day conference focused on the theme of “Pentecostal Revival in the Next Generation.” On the final day of the conference, participants will gather for a Global Prayer Meeting at the DMZ Peace Park, located along the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea.

It is difficult to believe that we have endured a pandemic since our last in-person gathering in Calgary. Thank God for His grace and mercy through it all. In many ways, the world has been prepared for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit. The theme for the conference, Pentecostal Revival in the Next Generation, seems especially fitting for this season.
