WE ARE RESURGENCE
A rising again; a resurrection; a renewal; a restoration to use.
Resurgence Initiatives exists to inspire the Body of Christ to arise together for the Kingdom of God. We aim to
- REVIVE Churches so they are…
- RELEASE Leaders who are…
- REACH People in a way that is…
In the summer of 2008, a group of individuals were drawn together in Spirit with a longing for more of God and a desperate hunger for more of His presence. A holy dissatisfaction and desire to see change was brewing. After much prayer and travail, the concept of “Resurgence” was birthed, being defined as “a rising again, a resurrection, a renewal, a restoration to use”. A team was formed, and over time the team was led to host gatherings with the title of Resurgence. The intention of the gatherings was to create an atmosphere where the Holy Spirit was welcome to move; where true worship was released; where the Gospel was preached and demonstrated; where people could experience healing, freedom, and receive a commission to live for the Kingdom.
Very early in the journey, the team realized that this wasn’t going to be just a one-time event, but more of a lasting lifestyle – a movement. The story found in Ezekiel 37 of the valley of dry bones coming to life has been at the heart of our community since we began in 2008; God is calling people of all ages – the vast expanse of dry bones – to RISE UP! God longs for life to come back into this collective generation in a fresh and new way. We need God’s Glory and presence to impact us and a generation. Resurgence is not about building one church or hosting another conference, but expanding God’s kingdom…it is about EXPERIENCING the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives.

OUR PASSION FOR CANADA
We have a strong God inspired passion and belief that “Canada Will Be Saved.” This call burns in our hearts as a ministry and leadership team. We stand in the belief that our nation can be saved in this generation. Psalm 72:8, the founding verse of Canada, declares that He shall have dominion from “sea to sea and to the rivers to the end of the earth.” This fuels our drive to be a nation wide movement – to see a Resurgence across Canada!
“I was deeply humbled and inspired by the energy and passion for renewal that I experienced at Resurgence. To be in a place where a deep hunger for God fills the atmosphere was contagious. Movements for God are hard to define, but when you are in one, it is hard to deny. Resurgence is definitely a movement! I dare you to catch the wave of God on the move to see Canada and the Nations transformed!”
