Pastor Ali Feizi on the emerging generation of leaders



Pastor Ali Feizi shares about his excitement about the book Battle for the Soul of Canada, which focuses on raising up the emerging generation of leaders. Ali is a pastor at the Church of God of Prophecy in Vancouver BC, and attends the Vancouver Pastors Prayer Fellowship. His testimony of coming to faith from a Iranian muslim background can be read by clicking on the Light Magazine link.


Excerpt: "Something strange was happening to him. Although he didn’t know what it was, Ali Feizi knew it was real. He felt completely bewildered by the so-called “praise and worship” time and even more confused by the content of the central message: Jesus is the “Son of God.” To be in a Christian church was forbidden to him as a devout Muslim. “What am I doing?” he thought anxiously. “I have to get out of here.”"

I am a Timothy




Jason Chifan
Hello Ed. I am a 3rd year Bible College student at Christ for the Nations (CFN) Bible School in Langley, BC, and one of my professors is Dr. Ken Deeks (he is very involved in St. Matthews, Abbotsford).


I serve at my church, Westwood Community Church, in Coquitlam, in the kids ministry, and the Kids Ministry Pastor, Sandra Crawford, referred your book over for me to read! I'm still on the first half, but really appreciate what you have written.


I know that God has spoken over my life that I am a Timothy and he has commissioned me to raise up Timothys as well.

Every Page is stirring me...



From: Michael Kerry [mailto:nut.shell@shaw.ca]


Dear Ed,I thank you for inspiring me for many years.I have fond memories of Christian Ashrams with you and David and Vera Cline. I remember you at St. Matt’s and on occasions we’ve met along the years.It’s good to be on your mailing list and receive your frequent messages.


Above all, though, I thank you for the electronic copy of Battle for the Soul of Canada. I’m reading it as a devotion and its every page is stirring me.


You will recognize me (go to www.churchinabbotsford.com and click on “About” - “ACLN”).Tomorrow my wife and I are joining the march that takes us from Abbotsford Community Services to St. Matt’s. It will give us the liturgical stimulus that we occasionally enjoy and it will also renew our fellowship with believers who are paying the price.


Bless you Ed,


Michael Kerry

Lonni Collins Pratt finds Battle for the Soul applicable



I have read and enjoyed your book Ed, I think much of it is applicable to the western world in general.

I am the author of Radical Hospitality, as well as numerous other books, the second edition of Radical Hospitality will be released late in the spring. I'm hard at work on another book.
I've spent most of my life as a writer/journalist and have numerous secular and religious press awards. My husband is a United Methodist pastor, we live in very rural Michigan.

Endorsement from Singapore


Thanks Rev Ed, we met last August at St. Simon's Church NV while we were visiting. I am in Sunday school ministry since 2009 in Singapore, and received our Lord in 2006.


I enjoyed your Battle for the Soul of Canada book which was sent to us when you first published it. I also enjoy your blogs and frequent updates. I feel the passion of our Lord Jesus in your ministry and will be praying for your church too. Blessed New year!
