Ep 46: Partnering with the Spirit of God in Bringing New Life to Others
Jesus transforms us! There are few things more exciting than witnessing and participating in God's transformative work in the life of one of His children. In this episode of the reKindle podcast, Kathy Klassen shares an effective framework to partner with the Holy Spirit in bringing new life to those you disciple.
Ep 45: Spirit-Empowered Mission - The Fallacy We've All Believed
Why is it that while thousands across Canada have participated in renewal events (Soul Care, Holy Spirit Encounter, etc.), current statistical data shows that missional behaviour, as measured by missional prayer, social concern, and direct or verbal witness, has not increased? If the belief that spiritual renewal automatically translates to increased missional behaviour is true, then why aren't we seeing more of this? Has the church in the West missed an essential element in their pneumatology and missiology?
In this episode, Nick Kadun and returning guest Dr. Kyle Harnett talk about why training for mission and evangelism is crucial to seeing everyday Christians effectively engage in Spirit-filled mission, and why this matters for Canada.

Ep. 41: Ukraine Crisis & the Role of the Church
Join Jerin Thomas as he engages in a conversation with Bill Finnemore (Former IW to Poland) on the current crisis in Ukraine. How is the church responding to this situation? What can we learn from the resilience of the church in Ukraine? How are the Polish churches gearing up to serve the refugees? How should the church respond here in Canada?
