About the DreamCentre updated FEB 2018

Luke 4:16
And He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up; and as was His custom, He entered the synagogue on the Sabbath, and stood up to read. 17 And the [e]book of the prophet Isaiah was handed to Him. And He opened the [f]book and found the place where it was written,
18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,
Because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor.
He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives,
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set free those who are oppressed,
19 To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.”

Purpose:   After several years of absence in the city of Yorkton,  (https://www.yorkton.ca/)   the PAOC family relaunched a church called THE YORKTON DREAMCENTRE in February 2015.

USING the DREAMCENTRE model (Pastor Matthew Barnet in L.A.), we desired to be a church that focused on serving the city as needs arose.   The DreamCentre replanted Church will be offering these services (areas of ministry) but are not limited to, and are subject to change as needs present themselves and demand dictates:
1) A “DreamLand” a family Play Place. DreamLand is a family drop in, unsupervised, indoor play ground for children. It’s safe, fun and an attractive gathering venue.  
2) A weekly Soup & Bun supper each Wednesday at 5:30pm. This will be available to anyone who  needs a meal.
3) SUNDAY NIGHT CHURCH  Every SUNDAY night at our 244 Myrtle AVE location. 5:00pm

4) Programs like the ALPHA course, or CELEBRATE recovery are offered from time to time.

5) Monthly Soup Haven meal is hosted at the DreamCentre

and MORE

The PAOC ministry in Yorkton has been in a tough place for the past few years.  With the resignation of the pastor in 2010, the work was closed in 2011 and the building was rented to another ministry.  
In 2012, after renting our church building to the Victory Church in Yorkton for a year, an offer to purchase was received from them and accepted. The money from the sale of the building was put in trust for replanting in Yorkton, as  the district leadership team believed that our ministry in the city was not to be finished for good.
In 2013, significant decisions were made.  Kevin and Rachelle Sawatsky, (they were the pastor at LifePoint church in Lanigan, SK) led the replant team back in Yorkton.  

Kevin and Rachelle became part time Sr Pastor in Lanigan and relocated to Yorkton with his family, to do the work of replanting. A proposal was made to the PAOC District Executive of how, in partnership with them, and LifePoint Church, the Sawatsky family would begin developing a new Church.  The District committed to support in with  finances, prayer and friendship.  

In April 2013, the search began for a facility to accomplish this vision in Yorkton. 

Sept. 2013,  by God's provision, the Sawatsky family arrived in Yorkton, with the use of a 5th wheel trailer, that would house our family from September 1st to November 17th of that same year.  These were days filled with both joys, and sorrows, as the transition from familiar and comfortable, to alone and unfamiliar. During these fall months, they worked diligently at building relationships with the community of believers in Yorkton.

The 13th of August, 2014 an offer to purchase was accepted on the property on, 244 Myrtle Ave in Yorkton.

February 2015 we had our first service (on Monday nights) 

Sept 2015 GRAND OPENING of the ministry

January 2017 The Sawatsky family (see Picture) relocated full time as Pastors of the DREAMCENTRE.

The DreamCentre seeks to be a ministry that is Gospel 
Justice centered.  Our theme verse is Micah 6:8 

He has told you, O man, what is good;
    and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, 
                and to love kindness (Mercy)
                                  and to walk humbly with your God
