Dr. Bill Hogg serves as Message Canada Trust Foundation’s National Director. Bill’s passion is communicating the good news of Jesus, igniting the fires of evangelism, and encouraging and equipping God’s people to share the gospel. He loves encouraging younger leaders and mentoring evangelists. Bill dreams of seeing a new generation of Canadian evangelists raised up by God and released into the harvest fields. 


Bill is a published author and former radio talk show host and has served as a pastor, professor, evangelist, and a movie extra. He was involved in pioneer evangelism in his native Scotland, developing Youth for Christ in his role as national Evangelist. Bill is part of the Arrow Leadership Ministries faculty offering congregational and para-church leaders training in evangelism. He also served as National Missiologist for C2C Network. He has been involved in assessing, coaching, training and supporting church planters for several years. 


Bill is a faithful and frustrated Manchester United supporter who remembers and looks forward to better days! He is unimpressed by the CFL and follows the Seattle Seahawks. If money was no object, he would spend a month each year in Hawaii soaking in the sun and snorkelling.

Kathy’s passion is to chase after God with every ounce of her being in such a way that others are drawn into the abundant life Jesus promised and walk that out authentically, resulting in others wanting to follow Jesus too. She brings global awareness, having grown up in East Africa and lived out much of her ministry experience in the multicultural city of Toronto. Her 30 years in disciple making has included ministering to university students, business people, seniors, and everyone in between.


Kathy is a catalyst for the deeper life as she helps others journey from disillusionment, disengagement and distraction into the vibrant, abundant life Jesus promised, through a balanced grounding in the Bible while experiencing the power of the Holy Spirit. Despite Kathy’s passion for the deeper things, she is practical, fun loving and contemporary in her approach. 


Kathy presently ministers in the Eastern Canadian District of the Christian & Missionary Alliance as the Director of Relational and Spiritual Vitality, helping bring renewal to their 87+ churches.
