Learn to cooperate with the Holy Spirit.

EdmontonWorship Spark

Our unique calling in helping fulfill Jesus’ Great Commission is equipping Christians to cooperate with the Holy Spirit, who is the director of church growth, missions and evangelism. Our programs aim to grow spiritual leadership for the movement of the Holy Spirit.

We’ll teach you how to discover your spiritual gifts, grow in them, and experience them as you do whatever ministry you are called into.

Fulfilling the Great Commission is an impossible task, apart from the power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus told his disciples, "Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait there for what my Father promised, which you heard about from me. For John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now." (Acts 1:4-5 NET.)

"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the farthest parts of the earth." (Acts 1:8 NET.)

Dunamis Fellowship Canada helps equip believers by providing biblical teaching on the Holy Spirit, and practical applications of the teaching. It also provides a community of Spirit-empowered believers who support each other in their spiritual development.


What is Dunamis Fellowship Canada (DFC)?

'Dunamis' (doo-nuh-miss) is simply the Greek word that is translated 'power', from which we get such words as 'dynamic' and ‘dynamo.'

DFC is a ministry with charitable status in Canada and members across Canada. We are part of a world-wide move of the Holy Spirit, rooted in the Reformed stream of the church of Jesus Christ. We share a vision statement with Presbyterian-Reformed Ministries, International (PRMI):

Exalting Jesus Christ!
Igniting the Church in the Power of the Holy Spirit
under the authority of the Holy Bible as the Word of God
Through Prayer, Leadership Development,
Growing the Church and Mission Outreach

So that the Church may be empowered to do all that Christ commands
For the glory of God the Father!

We fulfill our vision primarily through multi-day events which include a unique combination of
systematic teaching,
           active participation,
                     inspired worship,
                               dynamic prayer and
                                          intentional debriefing.

All of these components are focused on helping you keep in step with the Holy Spirit.

We use the metaphor of dancing with the Holy Spirit to describe the dynamic of our listening, responding and steping out in obedience to follow God on the dance floor of love to advance his Kingdom.  Our events give opportunity to be grounded in solid biblical teaching on the person and work of the Holy Spirit, and to cultivate practice in listening and responding to the Holy Spirit.

How does DFC help equip the Church in Canada?

Our vision statement defines our focus on four main areas of ministry:

  • Prayer    Prayer is foundational.  We teach people to pray, we bathe our events in Intercessory prayer, and we practice listening prayer as leadership teams and in our approach to evangelism.  The third Dunamis Project (in the series of six), The Power of Prayer, focuses particularly on prayer.  We teach on prayer, give opportunity to practice prayer and make it the foundation for DFC ministry.  Our Prayer Mobilizer, Martin Boardman, offers equipping, networking and prayer events, within and beyond Canada, connecting intercessors internationally.
  • Growing the Church provides practical teaching on cooperating with the Holy Spirit in a congregational context.
  • Leadership Development particularly through our Dunamis Projects, Growing the Church conferences and on-line, provides in-depth, experiential learning on how to cooperate with the Holy Spirit to advance Jesus' Kingdom.
  • Mission Outreach to deploy people for evangelism and teaching.

Our teachers are faculty of the Dunamis Institute.
