For the past 20 years, George Woodward has had a background of senior leadership in pastoring local churches, administering multi-faceted international ministries, serving as a Bible College Dean and, most recently, directing a national Canadian television ministry. George is also the Secretary Treasure of a national organization of Churches and Ministers called Open Bible Faith Fellowship and he and his wife, Marilyn, founded and directed a ministry supporting persecuted Messianic Pastors and Congregations in Israel.
Prior to his ministry career, George served as a senior executive for a major manufacturing company in Ontario.
Both George and Marilyn were born and raised in Southern Ontario. They have been married for 40 years and have two grown sons and four grandchildren.
George has a heart to see Canada take its place in the world during these last days. George believes that God has a plan not only for reformation in Canada, but also to use the nation’s multi-cultural Christian communities to impact the world.
One of George’s life scripture is II Timothy 2:1-2 which declares that we are to raise up able men and women that are in turn able to teach others. He believes that this is the Father’s heart and the anointing of God is evident as George declares this truth.
He recognizes the responsibility we have to demonstrate the heart of the Father to this next generation. “To raise up and mentor this next generation is a mandate we cannot ignore.”
George, along with many others, recognizes that the Canadian church is on the decline and seen by most as irrelevant and archaic.
The two books he has written, " Raising up and Mentoring this Next Generation" and " The 1st Shall be 21st and the 21st Shall be 1st," address this looming reality in the Christian church in Canada today.
