About-

Over the past forty years, Canada has become an increasingly secular, multicultural, and religiously plural society. Indeed, the church in Canada, and Pentecostals in particular, face a challenging context for responding to the call to bear witness to Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit. Like the disciples on the day of Pentecost, however, we need the Holy Spirit to come upon us and liberate us from our post-Christian pessimism. We need the Holy Spirit to enable us to proclaim the gospel to the nations, people that are no longer at the ends of the earth, but making their home in Canada. This book engages this new context, and considers and proposes ways that pentecostal Christians and churches can respond to the challenges of the increasingly post-Christian, multicultural, secular, and religiously plural context of Canadian society.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“The essays in this volume will help the Pentecostal church in Canada better understand its changing context and challenge it to consider how it can most effectively serve the Lord and minister in the twenty-first century. Those from other Western, post-Christian contexts would be wise to listen in to this conversation.”

—Andrew K. Gabriel, Vice President of Academics and Associate Professor of

Theology, Horizon College & Seminary



“Out of my concern that the church in Canada represent Jesus well I was motivated to attend McMaster Divinity College’s conference on ‘Pentecostal Preaching and Ministry in Multicultural and Post-Christian Canada.’ I deeply appreciate that Steven Studebaker has taken the time to compile the excellent material that was presented that day. The content is informative, challenging, inspiring, and applicable for those who seek with the Spirit’s empowerment to participate in our shared mission in Canada.”

—David R. Wells, General Superintendent, Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada; Vice-Chair, Pentecostal World Fellowship
