Historymaker is an annual event on the May long weekend in Chilliwack, B.C. that gives teens and leaders an opportunity to have a life-altering encounter with the living God.
That encounter can encourage, equip, and empower them to reach the 1.2 million people considered the next generation in BC and the Yukon. $5 from each registration is going towards starting a new youth group.
This year’s Historymaker (May 19-21, 2017) theme is TRUTH. The call is to experience and to know God personally. It is also a call to make him known in every context of life. Jesus’ message of love, hope, forgiveness, and wholeness is for inward change and for outward impact found in John 8:32.
In the post-Christian and post-modern Canadian culture where we find ourselves living out the gospel, truth has become an increasingly relative concept. Truth for some is based on their feelings, whatever they choose it to be, or what is convenient from season to season.
In the daily search for truth, many seek truth from whatever the top 10 results on Google explain about a given topic. It is important for the next generation to grasp the need to rely everyday on truth from God’s word and to live out truth through a relationship with Jesus that is empowered by the Holy Spirit.
This year’s conference welcomes worship leader and songwriter Ben Fielding from Hillsong Church Australia along with pastors Mike Miller and Kim Moran.

Mike Miller pastored Shiloh Youth for over 10 years and founded Shiloh University Church, a ministry focused on young adults meeting on campuses in the heart of Halifax, N.S. Known for its strong culture of inclusion, preaching and passionate worship, it reaches hundreds of college students weekly. Mike and his wife Nancy and their two children, Joshua and Mattie, transitioned from being the student pastors at Rock Church in June 2015, and Mike now travels full-time preaching and teaching. They are planting Nova Church in Halifax, N.S., launching fall 2017.
Over the last 10 years, Kim Moran has served as a youth pastor, director of a not-for-profit organization, a campus pastor, a Bible college professor, and most recently became one half of the lead pastoral team at Abbotsford Pentecostal Assembly in Abbotsford, B.C. Kim’s passion for the Bible, her inspiring story of hope and healing, and her desire to see people’s lives changed by the presence of the Holy Spirit resonates with people of all ages. While her favourite things include warm pastries, smoothie bowls and travelling, if you ask her what she really loves she’ll gush about her husband Clark, her passion for ministry, and her love for the God who has never left her side.
