KINGDOM GREETINGS TO YOU PASTORS AND LEADERS!
For over 10 years I have had the privilege of Pastoring at The Embassy Church in Oshawa. In my first number of years I established, and primarily worked with what became one of the largest young adult ministries in Canada – “Embassy This Generation.” At that time the Lord began to open many wonderful doors to speak itinerantly, and help spearhead a few national initiatives.
During those years I had the privilege of leading many awesome revival meetings, and saw great things happen through our young adult ministry and our church as a whole. One day it occurred to me however, that though we were having continued “moves of the Spirit” in our church, there seemed to be little to no impact on our city and nation! This didn’t make sense to me and I began to feel desperate and wanted to do something about it.
In the last 5-6 years, the Lord began to work in my life in a deep way related to concepts of national transformation and a general understanding of what it means to establish a healthy local church but also “go beyond the four walls” for societal impact. I deeply desired to see our church members go beyond just church attendance, and see them step into their callings. To not only be passionate about building their local church, but also be passionate about fulfilling the Great Commission.
It was during this season of hunger and frustration that the Lord graciously gave us a “gift” in the form of a number of unique training modules that were called “History Maker Trainings.” Over the next 2-3 years as we funneled people through these modules, the results we saw were astonishing! To be completely honest, in all my years of ministry I had never seen anything quite like it. As a Pastor desiring fruitfulness from our congregation and leadership we sometimes can feel like we’ve “seen everything under the sun.” I would honestly say, that in the last 3 years of holding these unique trainings, I have seen more fruitfulness and results from our members than I have in an entire decade of ministry! Pastors and leaders with 30 plus years of ministry experience have expressed the same after experiencing the power of even just our level 1 training. People constantly comment on how after 3 and half days of the level 1 training, their Christian life was completely transformed, and they were able to step into their callings-and the results actually remained! In fact, the results we experienced were so extraordinary that it led to the release of my two books, “The History Makers Training,” and “Beyond the Four Walls.”
To date, at least 15 social projects and movements have been created by History Makers Training grads, sparking interest from city/provincial officials and others. Some grads are even now running for positions in government. What we are now calling, “The History Makers Academy” has been called the “Harvard of the Christian world,” and we desire to be a catalyst in helping local churches step into a place of true fruitfulness, where fulfilling the Great Commission is possible through the life of any believer.

Is there more to being a Christian and going to church? This books shows us how the seemingly impossible: God’s will done on earth as it is in heaven can happen. The impact is a complete transformation of society across communities. Join the author as a young, inexperienced youth pastor encounters the concept of extending the Kingdom to all domains of society. Walk with him as he understands how this happens. Armed with this knowledge, he begins and incredible journey. The first impact was transforming his small youth group, in a 100 member church to a group of 1000. Subsequent impact are cataloged as people across the entire city of Oshawa are trained to systematically and strategically impact all spheres with the principles and practices of the Kingdom. Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done isn’t just a verse in an ancient text. It is our goal. It is our destiny. As it occurs, people are set free from the kingdom of Darkness, experience birth into the Kingdom of God and are able to influence all spheres of life with the salt and light of the Kingdom. This is a break through book showing the destiny that God has called his people to. Best of all – these principles and approaches are able to be duplicated in your life, too!
HMA – is a cutting edge training and equipping movement. This Academy is not a ministry of any particular church (though I attend a local church and am submitted to its pastor), but is a ministry designed to be a blessing to any and every local church, members and leaders alike. This national academy, we believe, is a tool for training and equipping leaders (or potential leaders) to fulfill the Great Commission, build the church, and impact all spheres of society. We are excited to be already holding trainings in parts of Canada and now in a number of different countries.
This Academy is not designed to take people away from the local church, but to assist the local church in training and preparing average individuals to make an above average impact on every sphere of society-including the church.History Makers Training is Ideal for Pastors, Church staff and Leadership Teams!
