lead pastors, the cause church
In October 2010, one month before Kyle married his wife Brittany, when attending a conference in Ottawa God spoke to Kyle about planting a church. In January of 2014, Kyle felt a shift in his heart and Brittany confirmed it a few weeks later. Kyle & Brittany starting seeking God for what their next steps were to be. During the summer, after an extended time of prayer and fasting, as they were driving home from holidays in BC, they drove through Cochrane and both knew God was calling them to plant a life-giving church in Cochrane. Unable to secure a facility within Cochrane, The Cause Church is launching in the NW of Calgary at the Bearspaw Lifestyle Centre.
"The Cause' came from a few words that Jesus spoke in John 18:37. "To this end I was born, and for this CAUSE I came into the world, that My life would bear witness to the truth." We believe that there is a God-given Cause for each one of us to not only discover, but to live out, and ultimately point others to the unconditional love of God. We don't know about you, but we are convinced that the church is the greatest cause on the planet. There are great businesses, non-profits and other organizations that do great things, but the church opens its arms to every facet of society and offers a solution that can heal the deepest hurts and bridge gaps that have often seemed hopeless.
Our heart is to build a thriving local church, that not only teaches the eternal truths of the Word of God but mobilizes individuals and families to live them out in their everyday lives. We believe that the Gospel never changes but the methods that we use to reach people do. It says in Psalms that, "Those who are planted in the courts of God, will flourish." Our goal is to create a fun, loving, faith-filled community that will help people flourish and become all that God has designed them to be.
