Every aspect of Surge! is designed to give you the greatest possible insight into a northern ministry. Our goal is for you to see what the Lord is doing up here, and quite honestly, our desire is for Him to bring you onboard. A surge is defined as a sudden, wavelike forward movement. With that in mind, we are asking God to push the ministry of SEND North ahead by supplying a new wave of church planters. Our prayer is for you to join the Surge! ùBarry Rempel, Area director
