Restoring Health: body, mind and spirit

Greater Vancouver Renewal Mission with Revs. David MacFarlane, Giulio & Lina Gabeli

Leave a comment


We are so much looking forward to the Greater Vancouver Renewal Mission on March 25th to 27th. God has a way of touching each of us deeply, refreshing us, reviving us and restoring us in unexpected ways. My prayer for each of us is that we will come to the Greater Vancouver Renewal Mission with a great sense of hunger that God will fill us and transform us. 


          We do believe that the Harvest is ripe, and that the Holy Spirit is on the move.  Rev David MacFarlane is a very dynamic communicator whom you will not want to miss. We are so blessed to have him coming for the Renewal Mission. Pastors Giulio and Lina Gabeli are an amazing team who work so well together in ministering to the needs of broken and hurting people. Please pray about whom you might invite to the Renewal Mission. I believe that God is going to do for us above all that we can ask or imagine.


The theme is John Chapter 4: “The Harvest is Ripe. The Spirit is Moving”. We will be holding it again at Harvest City Church, 57th and Victoria St in Vancouver. Elsbeth Turner is the leader and registrar of our Renewal Mission Planning Taskforce whom you can contact at 604-929-4224 or elsbeth.et.turner@gmail.com
