A one-day seminar will be held in May for Williams Lake and area church leaders.

The ReAwaken seminar is a Billy Graham Evangelistic Association of Canada initiative to help churches grow and connect with their communities. The goal of the ReAwaken seminar is to provide resources, foster the sharing of ideas and strengthen church leaders, says Frank King, media relations manager for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association of Canada.

The seminar leaders will be David Macfarlane, director of national initiatives for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association of Canada, and author David Overholt. Macfarlane has spent more than two decades on the front lines of ministry, leading churches in Ontario and British Columbia that have “turned around” and grown in regular weekend attendance through strategic outreach.

Overholt is an author of three books and leads the Youth and Family department at Toronto’s Tyndale Seminary. He speaks to thousands students and leaders across North America each year.

The seminar will take place May 11 at the Cariboo Bethel Church from 9 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. and includes lunch and handout materials.

There is no admission cost for the workshop but participants are encouraged to make a $40 tax-deductible donation.

The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association of Canada is a non-profit organization and the suggested donation is to cover costs.
