TC welcomes new National Director

Derk Maat - TC Board Chair

For the last several years, it has been my pleasure to function as both the Board Chair and CEO of Transformation Canada. I am pleased to share with you that commencing immediately, Dr. Brian Beattie who is a member of the Board of Transformation Canada and the Senior Pastor of Freedom House Church in Brantford, Ontario has accepted the new role of “National Director”.

TC is entering a new period of growth and expansion, having worked with Freedom House to establish a strong prototype of an emerging transformed city. What is happening in Brantford is a testimony and model of what is possible in other cities in Canada and beyond.

Furthermore, we have established a strong ekklesia in the GTA, including both pulpit and marketplace ministers, and are now considering next steps for transformation there as well.

Over the next few months, the Leadership Team under Brian’s direction will consider strategic steps to expand into other Canadian cities in order to develop a national presence across the country.

This transition will mean that I will no longer function as CEO/President of Transformation Canada, but will focus on my role as Board Chair. This will enable me to continue developing strong partnerships with other ministries and kingdom-based transformative entities in Canada in a strategic, corporate approach. I will also be working closely with Brian and supporting him and the TC Leadership Team to take the next steps of “discipling the nation” as mandated in the Great Commission in Matthew 28!

Dr. Brian BeattieI would like to personally thank and express my appreciation to everyone at Freedom House as they have fully endorsed this new level of partnership with TC. Brian will take on this new role while maintaining his position at Freedom House, and will be assisted by Nicki Straza who is taking on a part time role of administrative support.

We as the Board believe that the Lord is taking the entire Transformation Canada community to a new level of kingdom advancement, impact and influence across Canada. We believe that, over the next few years, we will see His Kingdom presence flourish in Canada in ways we have not yet experienced or even dreamed of.

Please pray for the Board and Leadership Team as we go through this time of leadership release, transition and strategic growth, and as we remain committed to expanding His Kingdom presence across Canada.
