What People are Saying

“In March Gord and Marcy Fleming, my wife Morag and I attended a HSE weekend in Lethbridge, AB hosted by the Alliance Church. The teaching reminds the believer of their identity and authority in Christ. There is an invitation to live in spiritual and emotional freedom and to be refreshed and empowered by the Holy Spirit. Morag and I left the event refreshed and encouraged, having heard from God and having received a fresh touch from God.”
– Bill Hogg, National Missiologist, C2C Network

“At the Holy Spirit Encounter retreat, I encountered God in a profound way, with blessings and lessons far beyond what I could contain in one letter. As a guy who leans toward quiet contemplation, this retreat was intense and stretching; nevertheless, everything was couched in love and security which made the environment conducive to even a monkish geek like me.” 
– Mike

“The event was profound. For me, the sense of God’s manifest Presence was exquisitely sweet. Thank you, not just for getting me to the retreat, but also for seeing the need for events such as this.” 
– David
