What Is Renewal?

The Western Canadian District dreams to experience a renewal in our district through the working and encountering of the power of the Holy Spirit.

Our vision is that:

By the end of 2018 every pastor in our District, and half of all our C&MA lay leaders, will experience afresh the fullness of Christ through the presence and power of the indwelling Spirit and will be equipped to lead others into a deeper Spirit filled/fueled life.


How Do We Facilitate Renewal?

We facilitate renewal through Holy Spirit Encounter gatherings and Soul Care Equipping Conferences.

Holy Spirit Encounters

The Holy Spirit Encounter (HSE) is a weekend that’s designed to give focused time for lay people, church leaders and pastors to go deeper with God and to access the power that He has promised.

The weekend’s content addresses the following issues:

  • Removing roadblocks to the Holy Spirit
  • Hearing God’s voice
  • Learning to forgive
  • Dealing with lies
  • And more


What People Are Saying About the Holy Spirit Encounter

“I have been living with a wounded soul for many years. God affirmed to me that I am worthy in Christ to be used by him. He showed me a picture of dancing in joy in a field of wild flowers in the midst of His overwhelming love for me.”

“It was an amazing weekend! Learned so much more of our Heavenly Father. I’m so grateful for the leaders, speakers and new people in Christ I met. Thank-you!”

“God opened up my spirit to be able to hear and trust in all that He gives us. The Lord has lifted up my spirit to be able to open my heart to all of His gifts, blessings and love.”

“I was able to grow closer in my relationship to Jesus. I was able to pray for my brothers and sisters in Christ. I was released from my bondage of control and received the life that flows from God.”

“He brought me out of my insecurity and revealed my true identity in Him; that there is no need for me to beg because I have already inherited authority through the power of the Holy Spirit.”
