A Biblical Battle Plan for Faithful Street Ministry

Artur Pawlowski. Street Church. Are these names ringing a bell? Depending on your theological convictions, they may be actually sounding an alarm. Many Canadian Christians already know about brother Artur’s “evangelistic escapades” in Calgary, Alberta, over the past six years—actions which have lead to his repeated injunctions, fines, and arrests. A recent National Post article gave him national (and international) attention as he voiced ...

A Miracle Turns Ten!

Ten years ago today, at 8:46am, a miracle by the name of Joshua Samuel McKenna was born into the world. A funny face! After the health-related loss of our first son, Canaan James Nolan, we were medically counseled not just to avoid having children – but even to abort the second unborn baby with which my wife was now pregnant. Suffice to say, the ...

A Holiday Heckler…with Holiday Punch?

Even MORE Harvest Workers!

Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” ~ Matthew 9:37-38 It’s strangely encouraging to realize that Jesus Himself shared the same problem we have during His earthly ministry: not enough laborers!

The Heart of the Gospel

The greatest need of our lost and dying world is not more Christian politicians, businessmen, or social reformers – it’s more Gospel preachers. Remember: it’s the foolish preaching of a crucified Saviour that is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes. Please listen carefully as John MacArthur beautifully communicates to Kirk Cameron the heart of the biblical Gospel.  ...

Church Without Walls

Allow me to reminisce. It was Spring of 2007 and the scene was Victoria Park in the downtown core of London, Ontario (where our ministry is headquartered). TCC Senior Rep Jeff Mardling and I sat alone at a picnic table in the park dreaming together about “what if?”… What if?… What if the entire church gathered together to worship and to be Christ’s witnesses ...

Noah, Moses, Jonah, Jesus, Paul, Peter – just to name a few. Church ...

Creation or Evolution?

– Do you believe we were created, or that we evolved? Does it really matter what you believe about this age-old issue? These are the kinds of questions asked of both non-Christians and Christians in this “On the street with TCC” short. The video recently premiered at the Creation Super Conference during Cory McKenna’s teaching session titled: “Bringing Truth to Life and Witness.” The ...
