This past August we took Skull Church on the road to our neighboring country to the north. This marked the very first time I have done any type of ministry in Canada. We traveled just under 1,100 miles across Alberta to take the message of gospel to Calgary, Edmonton, and Lethbridge.
We kicked off the tour in downtown Calgary at the epic Jack Singer Concert Hall. With a population of over a million people Calgary is a cosmopolitan city with numerous skyscrapers. The city has experienced rapid growth due to its status as the center of Canada’s oil industry. However, it’s still steeped in the western culture that earned it the nickname “Cowtown,” evident in the Calgary Stampede, its massive July rodeo and festival that grew out of the farming exhibitions once presented there.
Our team, traveling with two trucks hauling 24’ and 32’ trailers, and two vans carrying tour team members, began load in to the venue the day before the event. The Jack Singer Concert Hall is described as one of the most beautiful and acoustically acclaimed venues in North America. It is the home of Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, and by far the nicest venue we have ever had the opportunity to be in.
In the the end it was an incredibly special night at Skull Church Calgary. We saw ninety-three professions for Christ, it truly was a powerful night. Thank you to everyone who came out and made my first time peaching in Canada such a special evening.
It was an incredible kick-off to Skull Church Canada, here’s a look-book of the event:
