Living Hope: a Day of Enouragement and Renewal

If you missed Living Hope: A Day of Encouragement and Renewal, no problem! The entire day and its workshops were recorded and are now available on YouTube.

The main teaching was provided by Rev. Dr. Dale Woods, the Presbyter for Mission and Vision in the Presbytery of Westminster. There’s also remarks from Rev. Dr. Dan Scott, the moderator of the 146th General Assembly, along with greetings from Rev. Young Min Koh, the senior pastor of the host congregation, Vaughan Community Church. There’s also powerful worship music from Dr. Ken Michell, of Bridlewood Presbyterian Church and Tyndale University.

Tell us what you think! We hope to plan future events and we want to know what’s on your minds.

At Renewal Fellowship, our vision continues to be to “Lead each other and The Presbyterian Church in Canada to authentic Biblical thinking, powerful Spirit-led prayer and effective Gospel witness.”
