October 2008 marked the start of a movement. Three meetings. The intention was to create an atmosphere where the Holy Spirit was welcome to move in power; where worship released freedom; where the Gospel was preached and demonstrated; where people were healed, freed from bondage, filled with the Holy Spirit and commissioned to live for the Kingdom. God has been faithful. It is clear re:surgence was more than three nights of meetings.
Three years later, this movement has grown. Countless testimonies, countless lives changed, a generation of people craving restoration and renewal in the Greater Edmonton area. This is re:surgence; a rising again.
October 2011. Three Years. For this gathering, we return to the place where it started. We honour the past and the lives God has changed. We gather with speaker Travis Holownia, to celebrate all that God has done for re:surgence, and to delve deeper into the plan God has for the Greater Edmonton area.
