About The 6:7 Awakening
Hoping for an Awakening in our World?
So are we!
In fact, we are hoping for an awakening like the one in Acts 6:7:
“And the word of God continued to increase, and the number of the disciples multiplied greatly in Jerusalem, and a great many of the priests became obedient to the faith.”
Will God do this again? What are we to do in the meantime?
This is what The 6:7 Awakening International Gathering is all about!
It will be a time of powerful plenary presentations, life-giving corporate prayer, and practical workshops to rejuvenate, inspire, and awaken your passion for Jesus Christ and His mission!
We are so excited to partner with Centre Street Church in Calgary for this international gathering focused on raising up the Next Generation of church leaders committed to prayer-and-Word-powered ministry.

The Vision of
The 6:4 Fellowship
Our vision is rooted in the biblical paradigm of ministry seen in Acts 6:1-7. We long to see pastors and churches served with the encouragement and equipment necessary to catalyze Acts 6:3 disciples through Acts 6:4 leaders in the hope of an Acts 6:7 awakening.
We call it a divine pattern:
6:3 + 6:4 = 6:7

Being a Catalyst for Change in Your Local Church – Ann Wong
Do you desire to be a catalyst for change in your church to be a “House of Prayer?” Start now by being a praying catalyst! Come to pray together with others with the same passion, through worship-based, scripture-fed, spirit-led prayer. As we lift up our churches in prayer, the Spirit will Himself do the work of change in our local churches and enlighten us in our own next steps.
Confronting Spiritual Apathy – Robbie Symons
The Biblical Essentials to Leave Behind the Lukewarm Life.
Continual Fire on the Altar: Prayer and Pursuing God’s Presence – Roger Helland
I invite you to join me as we explore and experience pursuing God’s presence in united prayer that past and present dramatic moves of God contain and its impact in personal, church, and cultural transformation and holiness. We’ll draw on key biblical principles and practices observed in selected past moves of God, the Asbury University outpouring in mid-February, and summarize the results of the recent Ignite worship and prayer summits held in Ottawa, Calgary, Kelowna, and Regina with the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association of Canada, National House of Prayer, Peace and Reconciliation Network, and Vineyard Canada. Multitudes of Christians and churches continue to wrestle with the effects of Covid and global upheaval resulting in anxiety, divisions, and uncertainties. If you want to learn how to fuel your personal and corporate life of prayer as a continual fire on the altar that ascends to and activates God’s presence, bring your Bible, your consecrated heart, and your prepared mind to spend this hour together.
Don’t Give Up – Al Toledo
Overcoming the Obstacles to Enduring Prayer or Power in the Pulpit: The Spirit’s Role in Life-Transforming Declaration

Praying in the Midst of Fear & Anxiety– Kiké Torres
What To Do When You Don’t Know What To Do.
Rediscovering the New Testament Standard and Strategy for Making Disciples – Justin Jeppesen
Jesus made our mission as the church abundantly clear when He declared in “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations…” Yet even though our mission is clear, we have found ourselves in what could be called a “discipleship crisis.” Stats and stories abound that tell of the “nones,” “dones” and disenfranchised” that are departing the church in staggering numbers, most of which are between the ages of 18-35. These past few years of disruption provide an opportunity to disciple in a whole new way. Well, actually in an old way. We can return to discipleship by the design Jesus has already established for His Church. We believe this is a “prayer-based” approach to building disciples who are marked by godly character, and who are full of the Holy Spirit and heavenly wisdom. What if the best way to disciple the nations is for the church to become a house of prayer for the nations?
Unhurried Time With God – Jeff Wells
If we want to draw closer to God, it is important to spend time with him. This session not only addresses the importance of daily unhurried time with God, but offers practical steps for how we can each experience God more fully.
Church Politics: An Oxymoron! – Ordering Church by the Book – Len Crowley
“Church Politics!” Something is desperately wrong in the church if those two words are embraced as “normal.” Discover the biblical importance of Principled Governance – the kind displayed at the “first board meeting,” in Acts 15.
Glorious Finish: Practical Daily Choices that Lead to Finishing Well – Daniel Henderson
Too many Chrisitian leaders have fallen — breaking the hearts of congregants and damaging the reputation of the gospel. If you desire a lifelong pursuit of integrity and impact, you will be practically and powerfully encouraged by this relevant workshop – based on Daniel’s popular book, Glorious Finish.
How to Develop a Life-giving Culture of Prayer in Your Church – Paul Meldrum
What breathes life into the practice of prayer in our local churches? It is God’s holy presence through the power of His Spirit. If that is the case, then how do we journey into His presence? Worship Based Prayer delivers an increasing clarity of the Person, Character and Qualities of God, thus drawing us more deeply into intimacy with Him. His holiness elicits our worship, demands our repentance, calls for our submitted obedience and motivates us to speak the Gospel of Jesus to the world around us. Our workshop will be spent discussing the simple principles and committed process of introducing Scripture Fed, Spirit Led, Worship Based Prayer into your church. Further, we will spend time together in the worship of and prayer to our great God and King, and we will finish with a time of questions and answers. Come join us for a wonderful and life-giving time, together.
Learning to Lead Prayer that is Worship Based – Alice Moss
Is your prayer life boring, empty, lacking in spiritual fulfillment? Do you long for a deeper, stronger, more powerful prayer life? Do you desire a more intimate time with God? Do you wish to lead others in prayer that is life changing and fulfilling?Then this is the workshop for you. Join Alice Moss as she teaches how to lead Worship Based Prayer, using the Paradigm of The Lord’s Prayer.
The Kingdom of God is Not Talk, But Power – Jim Maxim
Understanding your role and your privilege to minister first to Almighty God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Learning “to move the hand that moved the world” will create a passionate desire to live your life before the throne and we will discover how that translates to your daily job, your family, and your calling.
The Pitfalls and Joys of Ministry Marriage – Dennis & Billie Henderson
This is story of 54 years of marriage ministry. Dennis and Billie with openly tell of failures in the marriage and even marriage train wreck that came in their 28th year of marriage. Their session will be helpful any couple in ministry as they will share the pitfalls to with out for and the joys that can come when the marriage is on track.
Praying Biblical Prayers – Sean Campbell
How does my prayer life differ from the prayer lives of Biblical men and women? Could it be that I missing the point?
Prayer Culture: Why and How the Pastor Must Lead the Way – Troy Keaton
Does your church experience the power of effective, life-giving prayer? What must we do as pastors to initiate a spirit of genuine prayer in our church bodies? In this session he will discuss the joys and disappointments of leading a praying church and provide practical and effective ways we can fulfill our most important role as leaders.
Proving My Faith @ Prayer – Rob Parker
Have you ever considered measuring the effectiveness of your prayers? In John 15:7-9 Jesus seeks to respond to your prayers so that the Father is glorified and the answers result in a proving your faith. This is anchored in the close relationship of prayerfully abiding in him and his Word abiding in us.
Who is your Paul? Who is your Timothy? – Lindsay Taylor
Have you ever promised yourself that you are going to get physically fit? You begin a new diet or exercise program only to fall back into your old habits a few weeks or few days later. I believe the answer for may of us is, that we try to go it alone. Unfortunately that is often true in our spiritual journey as well. Growing alone is not an option. Join me as we explore this topic.
