About the book :
This new book, published by Castle Quay Books, highlights leading Christians, including: Dr. David Mainse (100 Huntley St), Don Cherry, Paul Henderson, Ron Ellis, and Mike Gartner (hockey heroes), Lorna Dueck (Context TV show), Bruxy Cavey (The Meeting House), John Arnott (Catch the Fire), Bruce Smith (King Bay Chaplaincy), Mel Stevens (Teen Ranch), Gerry O’Mahoney (World Vision Board), and Annmarie Morais, ( screenwriter and film maker) and many others who share amazing testimonies of faith in overcoming serious challenges and life crisis.
The Purpose of this Book:
The main purpose of this book is to inspire, uplift and strengthen one’s faith by providing overwhelming evidence that when we trust in God and walk rightly in faith, God provides for our every need. These testimonies prove God’s fulfillment and provision of His Kingdom Promise, which is best stated in the fundamental truth of Matthew 6:33, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.”
This book provides a solid spiritual foundation to accelerate one’s faith to be better prepared for difficult circumstances and to be reassured that God will provide for all of our mental, emotional, physical, financial and spiritual needs.
“The Kingdom Promise is timely food for the soul!” Reverend Bruce Smith, King-Bay Chaplaincy
“Knowing several of these men of integrity and faithfulness personally, I’m convinced their stories will challenge and inspire you.” Mel Stevens, Founder of Teen Ranch
“Facing adversity is a common theme for countless individuals and families across our country. The Kingdom Promise shares personal stories of how faith provided encouragement, hope and comfort during life’s unexpected setbacks.” Ron Ellis, Toronto Maple Leaf Hockey Club (1964-1980)
"The Kingdom Promise has been birthed in gifted creativity. I am honored to be included with people I respect highly. Do you need new inspiration? Read this!" David Mainse, Founder of CCCI- Crossroads Christian Communications Incorporated and CTS - Crossroads Television System
Synopses of "The Kingdom Promise"
Testimonies of Faith include:
“As a teenager I totally committed my life to Jesus Christ and I really had an experience with the Holy Spirit. So powerful… like on the day of Pentecost, and I knew God had called me into the ministry. The call was so clear that I could never have done anything else.” From Mainse’s early trials as a young Pastor in Pembroke, Ontario, his first venture on Saturday Night Live TV over fifty years ago, to establishing the biggest Christian broadcasting operation in the country; he lives by faith.
Dr. David Mainse, founder of 100 Huntley Street, and CTS (Crossroads Television System).
Paul Henderson potted the game winning “goal heard around the world” in the 1972 Canada Russia Summit Series for the biggest win in Canadian hockey history. “I had fulfilled most of my boyhood dreams, yet there was restlessness, a discontentment in the centre of my being that I could not ignore. Mel Stevens who ran Teen Ranch told me that I hadn’t taken care of my soul and had never really looked at what it was on the inside. That made sense to me, so I started to read the Bible and wanted to understand who Jesus really was, and His claim to be God, and His unconditional love for me.
Paul went on to start a men’s ministry now known as Leadership Impact Group. For the last 27 years, he has dedicated his life to mentoring thousands of men by developing their leadership and being a “Godly world change agent” leading men to the Lord.

"Annmarie Morais is a brilliant young Jamaican-Canadian screenwriter and artist who is blazing a major trail for herself in both Hollywood and Canada. She was the first Canadian to win the prestigious Nicholl Fellowship for Screenwriting (administered by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, "The Oscars").
This has led to a burgeoning career including her original screenplay for the hit film "How She Move" about a young girl living in Toronto's dangerous public housing projects and adapting the popular stage play "Da Kink In My Hair" for television.
However perhaps the most dramatic episode in her life was when she made a decision before her career took off to 'sow' her last $15 that she had to her name at her Toronto church and what happened next is a real "Hollywood" ending.
"Looking back I can see God’s hand in every twist and turn of the road. My understanding of the importance of sowing as an expression of love and not “loss” was cemented in a moment of giving, and while I am grateful for the fiscal blessing it yielded I am most thankful for the mile-marker of faith God erected in my life before that harvest came."
Annmarie Morais, screenwriter and film maker.
