I'm Douglas A. Balzer and I serve as Director of reKindle.tv and 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, frequently in partnership with my wife Teri. I am also host to the reKindle Podcast.
I have authored two books: The Empowerment Pivot: How God is Redefining our View of Normal (2020) and Light Up the Dark: Restoring Healing and Deliverance to Disciple Making (2021).
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.
