Canadian Christian Business Federation Appoints New Executive Director
The Board of Directors of the Canadian Christian Business Federation announced the selection of Rev. Dr. Don Moore as the new Executive Director to replace Keith Knight who retired on December 1.

CCBF’s vision and mission is already very close to Don’s heart. He comes to the role with deep experience and understanding of the power of grassroots movements to strengthen and transform Christian leaders. Don views his new role a privilege, a redemptive mission, and a sacred trust.

Don writes: “Building on the past, our mission is to generate fresh energy and hope among Christian business leaders as we strengthen the network of support available to them… support that is both faith-based and also relevant in the marketplace.

"By God’s grace, we will expand the impact of the gospel exponentially over the next decade, potentially influencing thousands of business Christians to follow Jesus, share God’s love in their unique context, and strengthen God’s Kingdom in the marketplace.”

"We will expand the impact of the gospel exponentially over the next decade."

Don strongly believes that people are our nation’s most valuable asset. His Listen-Learn-Lead” approach to leadership has made him highly effective in executive roles in a variety of organizations with local, regional, national, and international reach. An entrepreneurial thinker and strategist, Don built a grassroots movement of denominational and ministry leaders committed to evangelism with The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada (EFC) and led a National Consultation in Ottawa.

With World Vision, Don organized and led strategic planning to increase church engagement, and managed budgets of up to $3 million. Don’s wide range of experience in both profit and non-profit sectors also includes roles in PR, sales, and marketing.

Don’s enduring passion is to mobilize a team of staff and volunteers to accomplish a co-create, share, and implement together. The resulting synergies have a way of rendering impossible goals…completely possible!

This transition marks the beginning of an exciting new season in CCBF’s history. While unable to meet in person to mark our significant moment, please watch for details of a special event that will take place in early March.

Promise Keepers Canada | Impactus Announces New President
The Board of Directors of Promise Keepers Canada | Impactus has announced the appointment of Rev. Dean Brenton as the ministry’s new President, effective January 1, 2021. He succeeds former President Kirk Giles, who served in the role for the past 11 years.

Brenton has served for 30 years in pastoral ministry and denominational executive leadership, including 8 years as the Executive Director of Church Ministries and 5 years as the Executive Director of Ministry Development and Strategic Initiatives for the Pentecostal Assemblies of Newfoundland and Labrador. Brenton has been an active part of national, provincial, and parachurch boards, committees, initiatives, and events. He has also done extensive work and study in the areas of discipleship, ministry, and mission.

“We are excited to announce Dean as our new President, who has extensive experience in ministry leadership,” said James G. McArthur, Interim Chair of the Board of Directors and Chair of the President Search Committee. “Dean’s heart for ministry to men along with his experience in international missions and discipleship is a perfect fit for our new direction as a global men’s ministry.”

Brenton feels this is a tremendous opportunity to lead the ministry, as it has recently launched a new name, website impactus.org and ministry strategy this past September. "I am grateful, humbled, and excited to be joining the Promise Keepers Canada | Impactus team at this critical juncture in our history. I am standing on the shoulders of incredible leaders, including outgoing President, Kirk Giles, who guided this ministry with effectiveness, passion, and integrity. The unprecedented disruptions of the past months have provided us with unparalleled opportunities for the future. Our ministry has never been more uniquely poised and united in focus to equip men for a life of purpose and godly impact.”

Brenton recently completed his thesis on Missional Leadership as a part of his Masters in Theological Studies. He most recently has served as a Part-Time Instructor with Tyndale University (Toronto, ON) and Queen’s College (St. John’s, NL).
