 TREC Training & Equipping Christ-Followers

This Sunday evening program is geared to provide Christ-followers with top notch biblical and theological education, practical ministry training and Christ-centered leadership development.

In light of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, a number of Sunday messages and our winter TREC class will remind us of the wonderful truths that have shaped our heritage.

The most important event in the last millennium of church history was the Reformation. It entailed a rediscovery of the gospel, the way of true worship, and even the biblical understanding of marriage as a school of sanctification. In the seven weeks of this course, we shall look at the need for the Reformation, its beginnings in Germany with Martin Luther, and the way it spread to France, Holland, and England. Along the way we shall look at the remarkable witness of such believers as John Calvin and Thomas Cranmer, Guido de Bres, Lady Jane Grey, and Zacharias Ursinus, and its relevance for us today.  JOIN US to have your mind informed about some of the most crucial events in the history of the Church and to have your heart inspired to serve God with all of your being as these men and women did. 

Sundays at 6:00 P.M. in Fellowship Hall.

Teachers include Pastor John Mahaffey, Dr. Michael Haykin, and Dr. Barry Howson.

Big Questions (ELEMENT—Sr High)
with Jamie Wang

Canadian teens are engaging their peers within a culture that is increasingly hostile to Christianity and Biblical truth. They often feel ill-equipped and uncertain answering our culture's more sensitive and misunderstood topics. This Winter, TREC will be offering Big Questions, a class designed to equip Canadian teens to understand and answer the hard questions they are facing. They will have the opportunity to choose the questions they want answers to, and together with their leaders understand what the Bible really says and how to respond as Christ would. Join us and be equipped to engage your friends with truth that changes lives.
