Conservative Leadership Candidate Andrew Scheer
One of the candidates for the leadership of the federal Conservative Party is proposing tax breaks for families who educate their children outside of the public school system.

We encourage you to get involved in the budget consultation process. There are three means of getting involved: 1. Take the...
This Fall, join us for our annual speaking tour as we present in 14 cities in BC, Manitoba and Ontario between September 26 and October 14.
This year we are focusing on three key issues: Transgenderism, Pornography and our Culture of Death. When we read the newspaper, watch the evening news, or even as we scroll through our newsfeeds on social media, we can easily become discouraged by the brokenness of this world.

Israel’s very first prince lived at a time when God’s people were facing a foe that was large, powerful, and in control of their country. If this description strikes you as all too familiar then it will be instructive to consider how Jonathan responded to such a foe.
