Our Leadership – ABWE Canada
ABWE Canada Interim President
The Board of ABWE Canada has announced Dr. S. Lindsay Taylor as the Interim President effective September 1, 2021. Lindsay has been a great supporter of ABWE and for the past several years has been Chair of the Board.
Lindsay has served in pastoral ministry for over 35 years. His pastoral focus has been the renewal of local churches. His ministry has taken him to several churches who needed fresh direction and renewal from God. Early in his ministry he developed a passion for prayer and seeking the face of God. He introduced a new style of prayer services into the local churches he has served, and they are enjoying fresh seasons of prayer in concerts and summits. He is often quoted as saying “Prayer is the most difficult thing we do.”
Lindsay has been married to his wife Kathy for over 40 years. They have three adult children, one granddaughter and three grandsons. He and his wife love the local church and ministering in it. Their oldest daughter serves with ABWE Canada as a missionary in Chile.
Over the past 40 years, their ministry has taken them across Canada and around the world to serve churches that were in trouble. He has also helped several mission agencies develop strategies for their teams. Today Lindsay also serves as president of Strategic Renewal Canada with a deep desire to see churches across our land experience a heaven-sent move of God. He is thrilled to step in to act as interim president while ABWE Canada seeks a new president.
