ReAwaken offers you innovative approaches to outreach, and new ways to make evangelism a vital part of your congregation. You will learn to inspire members to build relationships with their non-believing neighbors, friends and family members, while equipping them to effectively share the impact Jesus is having in their lives.

“These seminars are underrated,” said Ron Maclean, senior pastor of Winnipeg’s Gateway Church, “because there’s a lot of great information in them and most churches need all the help they can get.” MacLean, whose church hosted a ReAwaken seminar, previously participated in BGEA of Canada’s Rock The River evangelistic outreach in Winnipeg in 2012. He noted most churches “don’t have equipping evangelists on staff, so I’m really glad we did it. It was very helpful for our staff.”


You will increase your congregation's influence by learning to:

  • Be creative in building new bridges to your community
  • Employ a variety of idea-gathering techniques 
  • Focus your church on the mission of evangelism
  • Develop an outward-focused church environment
  • Adopt new evangelism-orientated leadership strategies
  • Acquire important items for your leadership toolbox
  • Use a Community Outreach Kit (distributed to all seminar participants)
  • Influence through effective teams
  • Transform your ministry into a major influence for Christ
“I really enjoyed listening [to the seminar]. Thank you for sharing the stories of how other Christians reach out and serve others. Very inspiring.”

- Julie Toh
Member of Vancouver Chinese Pentecostal Church
Vancouver BC 

You will receive…

  1. An evangelism Community Outreach Kit with discipleship and training materials, including the latest video in the My Hope With Billy Graham evangelistic ministry
  2. A DVD of four outreach video presentations that can be used in small groups, outreach events or as part of church or community services
  3. More than 3 hours of practical and motivational teaching about innovative leadership and evangelism
  4. An interactive, practical learning environment


“The lessons you taught were the things my church colleagues and I needed to hear. It is my prayer that your teachings will serve as catalyst for a renewed enthusiasm in our church to do intentional evangelistic outreaches in our setting.”

- Rodel Orila, Senior Pastor, Filipino Maranatha Baptist Church, Vancouver, BC
