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

“The Holy Spirit Encounter is exactly what it proclaims to be – a powerful time of worship and teaching in which God is not only glorified, but shows up. And not just in a nice safe way where most people keep God on a leash – no, He shows up in a power- healing, saving and delivering kind of way… My life changed for the better because of the healing I received from the Holy Spirit during this time, confirming God’s direction and vision for my life.”


Soul Care Conference

The Soul Care Conference ranges from three to five days and focuses on equipping leaders with the tools they need to walk and lead others in freedom through Christ.

The curriculum can include:

  • Repentance
  • Forgiveness
  • Healing Lies and Wounds
  • Processing Grief
    And more
