Life is made up of moments. Most moments in life are ordinary but there are moments that set direction and focus. These moments must be seized when they present themselves for they are the moments that make a difference. As we gather for these 3 days, let’s make room for the Holy Spirit to challenge and transform our lives so His kingdom will have great impact in the church, city, county, state, nation and the world. The clarion call in 2017 is…IT’S TIME TO SEIZE THE MOMENT.
Ted Yuke was raised in Western Canada in the home of a pastor. After graduating from Central Pentecostal Bible College in 1970 Pastor Ted and his wife, Gloria accepted a call to become Youth Pastor with his father in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia. In 1971, Pastor Ted and Gloria, along with his brother Paul and family, answered the call of God to pioneer a church in Lower Sackville – a rapidly growing suburban community in Metro Halifax, Nova Scotia. Daring to believe God for great things, Pastor Ted and Gloria, together with a half dozen families, took up the challenge to build the first Full Gospel church located in Lower Sackville. Reaching across denominational barriers, Rock Church experienced phenomenal growth in its early years, both numerically and spiritually, during the Charismatic Renewal. Rock Church continues to be a growing and passionate family of believers with godly influence, locally and throughout the world.
In 2009, after 38 years as the Lead Pastor of Rock Church, Pastor Ted successfully transitioned the mantle of church leadership. Recognizing and obeying the apostolic call on his life, Pastor Ted has now stepped into the role of a spiritual father to the nations to see the global body of Christ strengthened and edified. He is giving his life to the encouragement of pastors and church leaders in North America and around the world. Pastor Ted is passionate to see a renewed hunger for the Holy Spirit to empower the church to become all that God intended it to be.
Pastor Ted has a prophetic and exhortative gift to call the church to repentance and to inspire believers to fulfill their God-given destiny in Christ. His messages are dramatic and vivid and his illustrative preaching style deals directly with the issues of the day. Pastor Ted’s stability, insight and godly wisdom are sought out by pastors and church leaders throughout the world. This has brought invitations to speak at conferences and seminars throughout the nations.
Pastor Ted and Gloria have one son, Tim. Tim and his wife Marni have three children, a daughter named Liberty and two sons named Lincoln and Levi, who reside in Metro Halifax.
