Prayer & Prophetic Symposium

In March 2018, we were excited to offer a symposium lead by Anita Ruis and Cathy Graham with a surprise appearance from David Ruis as well!  While relevant to all believers, we believe that God has placed a specific call on our Vineyard family to be a people of prayer and a people who hear and speak His word.  In this symposium we explored what this call looks like.  

Stay tuned for details on our speakers for 2019!  
While you wait, meet our speakers from 2018 below!

Anita Ruis: National Director of Vineyard Canada

If I had to distill one predominant theme out of my journey with Jesus I think it would read “discovering friendship”. I have long been fascinated with the reality that Abraham was referred to as the friend of God. Exploring what friendship with God & friendship with others truly means undergirds and empowers my heart for prayer and for prayer ministry. 

This exploration influences deeply how I carry my role in pastoral ministry and is the source of where I draw my strength to continue saying yes to the invitation of Jesus to follow Him. I am convinced that God allows those closest to us to be the “learning” ground for what it means to grow in His friendship and am forever thankful for my husband David of 33 years my 4 children and 2 grandchildren.

Cathy Graham: Vineyard Pulse Coordinator

Who am I? A daughter to my Heavenly Father, a happy wife to my dear husband Mark for nearly 35 years, a mother to two children I love more than myself, and a grandmother to a precious granddaughter and another one under construction…due to appear July 2018.

I am a retired Professional Counsellor, and now serve the Vineyard Canada HUB team as the National Pulse Coordinator. I dabble in all things concerning the Prophetic and Prayer ministry, and found my place there after experiencing the renewal in the late 1980’s and early 90’s along with my dear friends David and Anita Ruis. I am blessed to have intersected with them throughout the past 30 years, and now work alongside them in Kelowna, B.C., the place it all started for us back then. God is amazing!

I have a passion for writing, teaching, and people. I am from mixed Scandinavian, Inuit, and First Nations ancestry and a member of the Metis Nation. My heart is to see Jesus glorified in all nations and people’s.
