The hope for post-Christian Canada

Jon Morrison

Have you noticed our friends, neighbours and family members becoming more secular? Have you noticed that people seem less likely to attend church than ever before? That’s what the statistics confirm as well. In this session, Jon explores the deep Christian roots in which Canada grew up in and what Christians must do to re-introduce the gospel to our country. We have reasons for hope that God would revive Canada once again. Don’t miss this opportunity to be informed and inspired.
