WHAT IS INITIATE?

Initiate is specifically designed with Children’s and Student Ministries Pastors/Leaders in mind. We have intentionally designed this conference to inspire and refresh you and your leadership teams as you reach the “world” in which Christ has called you. Our hope is to engage all leaders (children’s and student ministry) in our general sessions & breakouts by giving leadership principles that apply to us all regardless of the demographic or context we find ourselves in.


Location: Calvary Pent. Church, Peterborough, ON

GUESTS


  • JEREMY ALBRECHT

    FRIDAY NIGHT SPEAKER

    Jeremy is a child of God, husband to Melissa, and father to Jake, Lydia and Sophie. In the summer of 2015 Jeremy transitioned from his role as Lead Student Ministries Pastor at Woodvale Church in Ottawa to join the Eastern Ontario District office as the Youth and Specialized Ministry Director. He is a committed Toronto Maple Leaf fan and bleeds blue and white. Besides hockey, hanging with his fam and the odd home reno project his other passion is pursuing his dream to write a book one day entitled, "101 Ways to Cook Ground Beef". But his greatest passion after God and his family is to raise up a generation of leaders who listen for God and do what He says! Jeremy and his family now reside in Peterborough, ON.


  • KEVIN SHEPHERD

    SATURDAY SPEAKER

    Kevin has been the Lead Pastor of the vibrantly growing church in Burlington, Ontario called Glad Tidings Pentecostal Church since 2008.

  • JORDAN & DANIELLE RAYCROFT

    GUEST WORSHIP

    Childhood sweethearts, Jordan and Danielle Raycroft, form the husband-wife duo known as Raycroft. Jordan and Danielle met in the 90's, only weeks after birth (there are photographs to prove it!), and married in May of 2016. Their love story is one for the ages, and they love to tell it - just ask! Jordan is a three-time Covenant Award nominee and a JUNO nominated singer-songwriter, and Danielle a gifted worship leader and music director. Together, Raycroft seeks to honour their Creator with the gifts He has given them: to point people to Him through worship, and songs of love, redemption, and truth.
