Introduction

Central Baptist Church has been chosen as the location for the 2014 Edmonton BURN. The reason for this choice is directly connected to what God did at Central, in raising up one of the most amazing expressions of contemporary worship music in the history of the Church in Edmonton.

For over 20 years, Central Baptist Church was the location of a city-wide ministry called “Glimpse of Glory”, that saw hundreds of youth and young adults gather together every week for extended times of worship. Glimpse was an undeniable move of the Holy Spirit, and the...

It was on this day, October 1 2009, that House of Prayer Edmonton started meeting each weekday morning from 9am – noon. Today we celebrate the 5 year anniversary of these daily prayer meetings. It is an amazing testimony of God’s grace that for 5 years there has been a near daily expression of prayer and worship, exalting the name of Jesus Christ over the capital region.

Originally these times of prayer and worship were called the ‘Nine to Noon Initiative’. From the very start we have emphasized three core elements: worship through music, devotional prayer from the Scriptures and...

Today I wanted to take a minute a share with you about one of my favorite people in the New Testament: a powerful intercessor named Epaphras. In Colossians 4:12, Paul writes:

“Epaphras, who is one of you and a servant of Christ Jesus…is always wrestling in prayer for you, that you may stand firm in all the will of God, mature and fully assured.”

I love this picture of this man of prayer who refused to give up and contended for the believers in Colosse. He surely battled through times of discouragement and weariness and stayed faithful in his times of...

It was on this day, back in 1727, that a group of Moravian believers in Herrnhut, Germany started a prayer meeting that continued night & day for over 100 years! It was out of that Moravian community that one of the greatest missions movement was launched. As many have said, it was a prayer meeting that literally changed history!

It’s hard to fathom...

I thought I would share a couple of brief thoughts with you about the nature of our spiritual identity; hopefully it will encourage you and give you something to think and pray about in your own life.

This week I was reminded of a key aspect of our spiritual identity that I first heard through Mike Bickle many years ago.Do you see yourself as a ‘sinner who struggles to love God’, or as a ‘lover of God, who struggles with sin’? The difference in wording is subtle, but the implications are profound.

Many of us primarily identify...

My internship at House of Prayer Edmonton was… well actually I’m not really sure how to put words to it. Maybe something like life-changing, inspiring, challenging and uplifting would help to describe it. But even that doesn’t quite do it. Why? Because it was all about pursuing and...

Who knew the Bible was so rich with mysteries! I have spent the last few weeks involved in the prayer room, fascinating discussions and in personal bible study. Spending three hours every morning in the prayer room was difficult some days when the colourful lights on the ceiling keep stealing my attention, but there are other days when the Holy Spirit is poured...

“the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.”

Many of us are familiar with the list of the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5:22-23; perhaps too familiar! Very often we look at...
