I'm Douglas A. Balzer and I serve as Director of Innovation in the Western Canadian District of the Christian and Missionary Alliance. Based in Calgary, I get to lead a fantastic team focused upon resourcing the church towards fruitful disciple-making, spiritual renewal and mission to those with limited access to Jesus.

Much of my time is given to equipping church leaders towards healthy souls, ministering in the empowerment of the Holy Spirit, ministries of healing and deliverance. I am also host to the reKindle Podcast.

My first book, The Empowerment Pivot: How God is Redefining our View of Normal was released in April 2020.

 

I have an M.A. in Leadership and Ministry from Ambrose University, Calgary. I earned a Doctor of Ministry - Christian Leadership in the Global Context from Alliance Theological Seminar of Nyack College, New York. I am an ordained minister with the Christian and Missionary Alliance.
