Pentecost Sunday is fast approaching on May 20. We have some resources we would like to make available for you to consider in the lead-up to this special day as you prepare your sermon content, or that you can also share with your congregation members for their learning and application.
Marie Miller, lead pastor of Pickering Pentecostal Church, also has some material from her Re-Ignite series (attached as a PDF document) which we appreciate her making available to the wider PAOC family.

Focus the energy and resources of the Spirit-empowered global church on the harvest and challenges before us.
Provide a platform for addressing the crucial issues facing the 21st century Spirit-empowered church.

Here are some additional resources for you to consider:
Miracle Invasion by Dean Merrill includes modern examples of spiritual gifts in action and true stories that will rekindle expectation that the Holy Spirit is alive and well, working in our time, on our continent, whenever we welcome His presence. In Miracle Invasion you will see that God is at work for your good—today! This book contains stories from members of The Pentecostal/Charismatic Churches of North America (PCCNA), an association of denominations and networks across Canada, the U.S., and Mexico with the motto of “demonstrating unity in the power of the Spirit.” Dean Merrill is a former magazine editor and writer best known for his award-winning collaborations with such Christian leaders as Jim Cymbala (Brooklyn Tabernacle), Wess Stafford (Compassion International), and Gracia Burnham (Philippine missionary hostage survivor). This book includes Canadian testimonies, some of which are our very own PAOC stories.
