Church Renewal Vision

The vision of Church Renewal is to be a catalyst for church renewal in Canada and beyond. This is a sizeable vision, but one for which God has given clear and simple direction and strategies. Through Church Renewal, Pastor Ray and Fran Duerksen 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 Round Tables

If you are interested in renewing your church, we would love to have you join us at an upcoming round table in which Pastor Ray Duerksen will share the vision of Church Renewal. Pastor Duerksen has 30 years of pastoral ministry including 22 years at Southland Church in Steinbach, Manitoba. Through Church Renewal Practices and a thriving prayer ministry, God has grown Southland to 4000+ attenders. At the round table, Pastor Duerksen will be sharing his journey of church renewal and would love to meet you, answer questions and share his heart and plan for the renewal of the church. Please join us!

Church Renewal Weekend

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.

"I grew up in the church and would have told you I knew who God was quite confidently. But, the truth was that a lot of who I thought God was came from lies I believed based on things that happened in my life. Beginning at the Set Free! retreat and in the weeks since, God has been showing who He really is. I didn’t really know who God was, but I’m definitely loving the God I’m beginning to know that he is!"
