Woke in the Word 2.0

August 13-20, 2022

A Study of the 7 Churches of Revelation

Home 5 Woke in the Word 2.0

It all began in 2020.

Four churches came together to conduct a unique and inspiring virtual evangelistic series. At the height of the pandemic, the series was hosted by the Shiloh Seventh-day Adventist Church and live-streamed worldwide on Youtube. The series was named Woke in the Word because along with sharing the three angels’ messages, social justice issues were highlighted through the preaching of the series’ speaker, Mathew Feeley.

About the Series

Woke in the Word 2.0 features speakers Mathew Feeley, Jayson Levy, and Andre Anderson.

It is 2.0 because it is new series that includes new church partners such as New Life, Bowmanville, Kendalwood, Kitchener, Waterloo, Simcoe, Six Nations, Shiloh and Kanata. It is 2.0 because it will be live in-person and live-streamed. It is 2.0 because this time the messages focus on Jesus’ messages to the Seven Churches. It is 2.0 because it is a new and improved version of communicating Christ’s Love to this dying world.

Woke in the Word 2.0 will be hosted by the New Life Seventh-day Adventist Church in Oshawa and live-streamed through Youtube from August 13-20, 2022. The program will run nightly at 7 pm and Saturday mornings at 11 am.

“Woke” is another way of saying enlightened. It’s about not being in the dark but knowing the real meaning. This applies to understanding the Word of God but more importantly understanding what God wants with us. We are being woke out of a sleep-state of inaction and status quo.

A study of the Seven Churches of Revelation and what it means for us today will help us understand practical principles.

Join Us!

This evangelistic series runs August 13 to 20, 2022, at 11 a.m. on Saturdays and nightly at 7 p.m., at New Life Seventh-day Adventist Church (33 Olive Ave, Oshawa, Ontario). It will also be live-streamed on our YouTube channel. No pre-registration is required. All are welcome.

Woke in the Word 2.0 brings together three pastors and nine Seventh-day Adventist Churches from across Ontario.

Pastor Jayson Levy

Pastor Jayson Levy was born in the sunny island of Jamaica and migrated to Toronto, Canada, at age 10. The transition, though, was challenging and led to him distancing himself from the church. However, he found his way back to God through godly influences and realized that this world has nothing to offer.  

A few years later he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Religion degree from Northern Caribbean University, he then began full-time ministry at the Ontario Conference. He now pastors the Kendalwood Seventh-day Adventist Church.

God has blessed him with a virtuous wife, Margeaux, who provides direction and clarity to his ministry. She is the love of his life and the blessed mother of their two children, Kaylon and Isabel.

Pastor Andre Anderson

Pastor Andre Anderson was born and raised in Scarborough. He is a well-sought-after speaker who has traveled to places such as Tanzania, Bermuda, Jamaica, and several cities in the United States as well as extensively throughout Canada. By profession, André Anderson is a Pastor in the Seventh-day Adventist church in Canada where he is currently serves as the senior pastor at the Shiloh Seventh-day Adventist Church. 
Pastor Anderson recently finished his Doctor of Ministry in Leadership at Andrews University. He is a powerful speaker and inspiring leader who always seeks to be authentic in ministry.

Pastor Mathew Feeley

Mathew Feeley was born and raised in Scarborough, Ontario. He grew up in a low income, metro housing community. The early years of his life were troubled and characterized by drug abuse and crime. 
Fortunately, God intervened at the age of 17. Mathew became a Seventh-day Adventist after attending a Youth Week of Prayer at the Scarborough Seventh-day Adventist church. After being encouraged to pursue Pastoral ministry, Pastor Mat studied at Burman University in Alberta and later did his Master of Divinity at Andrews University in Michigan.
Currently, he is the Senior Pastor of the New Life Seventh-day Adventist church in Oshawa. He is ever grateful for the loving support of his dear wife Kristy and son Ayden.
