“Break Forth is a beautiful manifestation of the diversity within Christ’s body of believers. There really was
“something for everyone.” Thank you for the amazing vision and commitment to excellence that was behind this
God-honoring weekend.” – a quote from a registrant
God moved in wonderful ways at Break Forth Canada 2003. Over 6,000 people gathered for
a time of renewal, equipping, worship and proclamation.
It was moving to see thousands of people from across ages and denominations gathering
together with a singular goal of worshiping God. Despite differences in musical tastes, doctrinal
distinctives and personal preferences, God brought His heart of unity. On Sunday morning, we
stood together and recited the ancient Apostles Creed as a proclamation of common faith and
agreement on the scriptural essentials that make us family.
It was a rich blessing to see grandparents worship with the Gen-X sounds of Chris Tomlin
and to see teenagers lift their hands as they sang a quiet hymn. The faith that binds us together
is stronger than the things that keep us apart.
God is growing Break Forth Canada. Just six years ago, Break Forth started as a worship
conference. Since that time, the growth has been nothing short of miraculous. Break Forth
Canada has grown from simply a worship conference to a conference which focuses on the
entire life of the church. Whether you want to develop a web site for ministry or you simply
want a time of personal renewal, there is something for you at Break Forth Canada.
Please pray that each person who attended the conference will have the wisdom to apply what
they learned in the context of their ministry and the courage to make a difference for the sake
of Christ!
May God be glorified!

More From Break Forth 2003
God’s faithfulness was so apparent at Break Forth Canada 2003. We heard
wonderful things from so many people. Here is just a sampling of the
written comments:
“It was a time of renewal and rejoicing.
There were times I laughed and cried, and
most of all I had something to think about
every single event. Excellent.”
“The whole trip was worthwhile to hear
“Holy, Holy, Holy” sung by 6500 people
while flags from around the world were
carried in. I could hardly sing a word I
was so overcome by the praise.”
Graham Kendrick led us in his classic
song, ‘Shine, Jesus Shine.’
“Encouraged my faith, challenged me to dream big dreams, brought personal
conviction, broadened my understanding of God’s workings in His people. I
won’t be the same.”
“Anxious to get home and tell all I’ve
discovered.”
“EXCELLENT conference! I’ve never
been to anything remotely like it.”
Thousands of people listened to
challenging messages during
the main assemblies
“God has called me to love Him more
deeply, to let go of my sorrows so that I
can worship Him more fully, and to learn
to hear and rely on Him more completely.
Thank you for all the work done to put
this event together.”
“I’ve never wept so hard. God, through His servants,
moved me in such emotional ways, that my soul was
blessed beyond belief.”
“Taken me back to that place of joy in the Lord.
Confirmed there is no other way of life. A job well done.
BRAVO.”
Chris Tomlin led a
“Gen-X” worship time
“I have learned to worship God, not through the music
with humility
or the songs, but rather in submitting my will to God and
and grace.
bringing a broken and contrite heart before Him.”
“A boost of renewal in faith,
something we all could use in our
churches. I want my children and
congregation to all come next year.”
SONICFLOOd led us in a
“youthful” worship experience
“Just a little taste of what heaven will be like
with all denominations worshipping as one.”
Bill Hybels called us to
courageous ministry.

Over 400 Volunteers Made Break Forth
Canada 2003 Possible!
Break Forth ‘Live’ Worship Video
and CD To Be Released
On Sunday morning at Break Forth Canada 2003,
six thousand people lifted their voices in a unique
blended worship experience.
This service featured riches from ancient creeds
and hymns as well as fresh contemporary songs and
expressions.
This was a huge production with the NBC choir,
a call to worship with a shofar, dramatic reading
and vignette from Randy Ritz, a message by Robert
Webber, Lift Him Higher Dancers, a flags of the
nations processional, a string section, and more. The
service was led by Arlen and the Break Forth Band.
Our Volunteer Committee heads were brought on stage and given a
standing ovation on the last night of Break Forth Canada.
Break Forth Canada could not have taken place without the
tremendous support of our volunteers! We are thrilled that many who
have volunteered with Break Forth in the past continue to come back year
after year. We feel this is because God has given back to volunteers what
they have given to us - a sense of belonging to a definite move of God.
We thank you all for your servant hearts and the use of your God-given
skills. We are still looking for dedicated individuals who have caught the
Break Forth Vision to come aboard after this event and partner with us
for future events. If you want to roll up your sleeves to serve God in this
way, please contact Jo-Anne Frank at New Creation Ministries.

What’s New
Break Forth Songbook Update 4 Released!
We heard the cry from churches. “Why do I have to
buy a new songbook every year with 2/3 of the same songs that
the last songbook had? Why are they in such high keys? Our
church can barely sing the songs! Why are so many songs placed
in difficult keys for guitarists?”
We desire to provide the best resources for the local
church worship ministry. Our Break Forth Songbook
does just that!
Here’s how it works . . .
You purchase a core songbook in a three ring binder. After that,
instead of purchasing a new songbook every year, you simply purchase an
update with new songs, slip them in your binder and you’re good to go.
Every song selected is in vocal friendly and guitar friendly keys. Included
in the core songbook are chord charts, thematic sets, scripture references
and more.
We now have Update #4 ready to go. The purchase price is just $12
Canadian. Songs include: Draw Me Close To You, Forever, Here I Am To
Worship, Refiner’s Fire, and 16 more.
If you have the core songbook and the other three updates, order
number 4 today to stay current. If you haven’t started, why don’t you begin
today?
Break Forth Hymns Songbook
The Break Forth Hymns CD is so hot we’ve already
had to re-order. These are contemporary versions of
rich hymns of the church such as Amazing Grace;
Beautiful Savior; A Mighty Fortress; Holy, Holy, Holy;
How Great Thou Art and more.
We are preparing a Break Forth Hymns songbook
based on the CD, similar to the Break Forth Songbook
Updates, for your church praise team. This includes
piano and guitar charts, all the string arrangements, choral arrangements
and more. We expect this to be completed by the end of March. Pre-order
your copy today. Just $12.
