Church Renewal Vision

The vision of Church Renewal is to be a catalyst for church renewal in Canada and beyond.This is a lofty vision but one for which God has given clear and simple direction and strategies. Through Church Renewal, Lead Pastor Ray and Fran Duerksen from Southland Church are working with pastors across Canada to bring renewal to the Canadian Church. As a result we are seeing lives and churches transformed! We believe that if the Church is going to be effective, it needs to be centered in prayer. Prayer is the catalyst for transformation, renewal, and the expansion of God’s Kingdom and God has called His Church to this purpose.

If you are a church leader, we would love to have you join us at one of our next Church Renewal Weekends!

Church Renewal Weekends

We have planned three Church Renewal Weekends a year in which you as a leader can participate, observe, and experience firsthand the principles of Church Renewal applied within the context of a church congregation. You will see how these principles can grow your church in prayer. In the history of the Church prayer has been the catalyst for the renewal of the Christian Church.

"The highlight for me was the prayer summit. 1100 people praying was nothing short of amazing. It gave me hope for the church. At Southland, prayer is their DNA. I encourage (everyone) to go to the next Renewal Gathering in October (26-28). Take as many of your leadership as you can."

- Sr. Pastor, Promontory Church
