THANK YOU TO REV. DAVID MAINSE; NAMED CANADA'S HERO OF LOVE
THANK YOU TO HIS DEAR WIFE NORMA JEAN MAINSE
THANK YOU FOR YOUR LOVE AND LABOR FOR CANADIAN GOSPEL BROADCASTING
DEEPEST HONOR AND RESPECT!
WE SALUTE YOU & YOUR FAMILY!
CANADA'S HERO OF LOVE: REV. DAVID MAINSE
Text from Crossroads.ca
Rev. David Mainse had an amazing capacity for work, energy, and networking. He was just 26 years old when, through his own connections and chutzpah he blew past a boundary of, “No gospel broadcasting,” and aired his first late-night television program, Crossroads featuring the music of his wife, Norma-Jean. It was June 1962, and the impact and audacity of saying, “God loves you” to a television audience surprised even David.
Fast forward to the 1980s – remember when Canadian phone books sat in every home? There you would find a public number to call in for prayer to Rev. Mainse’s TV program – 100 Huntley Street – listed on the cover flap, right alongside the civic emergency numbers!
Rev. Mainse soon became a household name. No one in Canadian history has anchored and produced as many TV programs as David did, no media in the nation has left as unique a legacy of social good around the world.
“David’s greatest hope was not rooted in this world, but in eternity,” says Crossroads Chairman Gil Scott. “His desire to see others come to develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ was his highest calling.
Under Rev. Mainse’s leadership and direction, what began in 1962 as a weekly black-and-white, 15-minute broadcast that aired after the nightly news on a small Pembroke, Ont., TV station grew to become an expansive family of ministries that included international multimedia programming, an international relief and development organization, a broadcast school (that trained Christian communicators from more than 80 countries around the world) and a national prayer center that fields over 30,000 calls each month, providing 24/7 telephone prayer support to Canadians. To date, more than 11 million calls have come into the prayer lines during which some 120,000 people have made decisions to become Christians, and 14,000 people threatening suicide have been counseled.
“He was passionate about people, about Canadian unity, and about ecumenical dialogue,” says Lorna Dueck, Crossroads Chief Executive Officer. “That passion led to innovation. David used the platform of daily television to model open, respectful conversation on faith among citizens from coast-to-coast. And his cross-Canada tours, designed to encourage Canadians, made broadcast history.”
When Rev. Mainse launched 100 Huntley Street in 1977, he did so with an on-air team that included a Jesuit priest and clergy from a spectrum of Protestant denominations.
It was as a result of Rev. Mainse’s vision (which was motivated by a desire to see Christian programming in prime-time) and his team’s arguments before Canada’s broadcast regulator in the early 80’s, that the CRTC determined there was merit to the idea of allowing religious groups to own and operate broadcast stations, an opportunity that had not existed in Canada for 50 years. The CRTC subsequently amended the Broadcasting Act and later called for applications for religious channels.
Rev. Mainse subsequently founded this country’s most-watched religious broadcaster YES TV (formerly CTS) consisting of television stations in Burlington, Calgary, and Edmonton. Several spin-off ministries were also launched by Crossroads, including the Circle Square Ranch children’s camps (which Crossroads gifted to Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship in 2011) which have provided spiritual nurturing and skills training to hundreds of thousands of Canadian children.
Crossroads Emergency Response and Development Fund (formerly ERDF now “Crossroads Relief and Development”) was established in 1982. Since then, it has disbursed more than $37 million to humanitarian projects worldwide.
David was a beloved husband to Norma-Jean for 59 years (as of September 19th) and also leaves behind four children, daughter Elaine and her husband Bruce Stacey, daughter Ellen and her husband Nizar Shaheen, son Reynold and his wife Kathy, and son Ron and his wife Ann, as well as 16 grandchildren with many spouses, and 13 great-grandchildren.
AGAIN, THANK YOU TO REVEREND DAVID, MRS NORMA JEAN & YOUR FAMILY.
WHAT YOU HAVE DONE FOR THE BODY OF CHRIST AND FOR CANADA IS PRICELESS.
YOU HAVE PAVED THE WAY FOR MANY, AND PUT THE BAR VERY HIGH.
CANADA THANK YOU!
WE WILL HONOR YOUR LEGACY.
DR. WILFRED LAI & FAMILY - DR. RALPH DARTEY & FAMILY
PROFOUND RESPECT & DEEPEST HONOR TO YOU
WE ARE DEEPLY GRATEFUL AND SAY THANK YOU
FOR YOUR OUTSTANDING COVERING, YOUR LOVE, YOUR PRAYERS AND FOR TRIGGERING OPEN HEAVENS OVER OUR NATION
When God was looking for men and women to trust with: Great faith, great purpose, great anointing, great love,
great visions, great mandate, great revelations, great mysteries, great people, great cities, great nations...
HE FOUND YOU! HE FOUND YOUR OUTSTANDING WIVES & YOUR AMAZING CHILDREN!
When God needed shepherds, leaders according to His own heart, men/women of God totally consecrated to Him;
available, willing, trusting Him, animated by faith, set on fire by Him, full of passion, of love, zealous, trustworthy;
men/women who don't belong to themselves - who offered their "utmost for their Master's Highest",
men/women totally sold out to Jesus, then to their family, then to those they are sent to;
radical cutting edge visionaries, creative thinkers, status quo challengers;
teachers, preachers, outstanding mentors who will invest themselves to transform lives and raise powerful leaders who will walk in their footsteps, do exploits and become history makers, like them:
a new breed of leaders, honest people, givers, who preach/teach by example, leaders who will give God back all glory,
loyal leaders, faithful, determined, bold, strong, with the capacity to receive heavy loads, to move/take mountains;
bold leaders who will stand firm in the midst of adversity, push boundaries, bulldoze out of their way every obstacle,
champions God made-trained-refined-anointed, dead-broken wounded healers,
spiritual warfare warriors who will never back up, never give up;
kings and lords who will "reign in the midst of their enemies" and relentlessly move forward God's agenda; until God makes all their enemies their footstools until the fire of revival spread and set the people and the nation on fire;
HE FOUND YOU! HE FOUND YOUR OUTSTANDING WIVES & YOUR AMAZING CHILDREN!
When many who were rejected, dejected... discouraged by their failures, dragging the heavy luggage of their past;
desperately in need of help to sort through the confusion of their life, guidance to discover purpose,
in need of spiritual guidance, of help, of covering, spiritual fathers and mothers;
GOD FOUND YOU AND ORDERED YOUR STEPS TO THEM AND THEM TO YOU!
THANK YOU TO DR. SAMUEL & REV. ROSE DONKOR
for being Dr. Dartey's spiritual father for 25 years.
We are grateful for those years of covering and great mentorship. Years where, God through you, trained him.
THANK YOU TO DR. WILFRED & MRS RITA LAI, WE HONOR YOU FOR BEING THE NEW COVERING,
THE OUTSTANDING SPIRITUAL FATHER AND MOTHER OF THE DARTEY FAMILY AND OF ALL OF US, AT TLCI.
When the time came, God, in His Sovereignty, ordered Dr. Dartey's steps to meet Bishop Wilfred Lai,
For Dr. Lai to be his father, his covering, to introduce him, give him massive exposure, to challenge him, speak over him, impart in him, shift him...
And for Dr. Ralph and his family to honor him, love him, obey him, sow into his life, walk in his footsteps of outstanding faith.....
WE ARE DEEPLY GRATEFUL TO ALL OF YOU!
WE WILL ARISE TO BE AND TO MAKE THE DIFFERENCE; LIKE YOU!
