Henri & me with Anne Lamott

Anne writes and speaks about subjects that begin with capital letters: Alcoholism, Motherhood, Jesus. Armed with self-effacing humor, she is laugh-out-loud funny - and ruthlessly honest. In all of her books, Anne writes about loss - the loss of loved ones and the loss of personal control. She doesn't sugar-coat the fact that life can be hard, and sad, and disappointing. But then there's grace,

"The movement of grace is what changes us, heals us and our world," writes Anne. "To summon grace, say, 'Help!' And then buckle up."

Canadian Evangelism Congress

Pastors, church leaders and all those who love the gospel, join your peers in Niagara Falls this September! You're officially invited to attend our inaugural Canadian Evangelism Congress. What is it?
The Congress will bring together like-minded Christian leaders on September 26-27 in Niagara Falls, ON. Together we will explore the current state of Evangelism in Canada, the pressing spiritual issues facing our nation, and how the Church can use proven strategies for making an impact in the name of Jesus.

May 28th


In 1956, Rev. Roy E. Upton had a vision to bring the message of faith to as many people as possible. He met with his followers in a bowling alley on Kennedy Road in Scarborough (Scarboro Gospel Temple) and began drive-in Sunday services amplified to about 100 cars in a Dominion Store parking lot.

Today, his legacy is known as Global Kingdom Ministries. Situated on 11 acres at 1250 Markham Road (near Progress Ave.) in Scarborough, ON, the organization has 12 pastors on staff, and attracts nearly 1,900 attendees every week for Sunday services.

Festivities to celebrate Global Kingdom Ministries' 60th Anniversary will happen in the month of May, culminating in a Banquet on Saturday, May 28 at 6 p.m. at the Brighton Convention Centre. Early Bird tickets go on sale from March 25 to April 3, 2016 (

Among the highlights of this milestone year is the launch of Trinity Ravine Towers, a 55+ faith-based lifestyle community available through a market value life lease.

Samaritan's Purse
Preparing to Respond to Fort McMurray Wildfires.

Forest fires have destroyed more than 1,600 buildings, including hundreds of homes, in Fort McMurray, and forced the evacuation of more than 80,000 people from Fort McMurray and the surrounding area.

In response, Samaritan's Purse is communicating with emergency personnel and with local churches so we are ready to help as soon as the fires are brought under control and the evacuation order is lifted.

May 24th - 26th

The Church Responding in the Middle East

At Faith Rising we will hear first hand from Joseph Najem and Dany Saab of the Free Evangelical Association of Lebanon about the current plight in the Middle East and how the church is responding to the needs of all people. Canadian Churches will come together with these two representatives of the Middle Eastern Church. It will be exciting as we discuss and learn about the complex issues that the church faces globally.
