BILL PRANKARD is a man with a burning vision for revival. In 1972, while pastoring a small Pentecostal Church in Canada, he had a life-changing encounter with the Holy Spirit in a Kathryn Kuhlman service. The experience launched him into international healing and evangelism ministry. Thousands of people have received outstanding physical miracles and spiritual transformations as he crosses denominational lines and carries the full Gospel message, “in demonstration of the Spirit and power.”
The scripture that has been the driving vision of his ministry is Canada’s motto, Psalm 72:8 - “He shall have dominion from sea to sea, and from the river to the ends of the earth.” During his five decades of leading the Bill Prankard Evangelistic Association, he has taken Healing and Hope “from sea to sea” in Canada and abroad. He has established and led churches, hosted weekly and daily television ministry, and authored several books and publications. At “the ends of the earth,” in both the Canadian and Russian Arctic, he has taken the Gospel where the name of Jesus had never been heard, and continues to mentor leaders, spearhead the funding and establishment of native churches and provides Spirit-empowered programs to address the epidemic of suicide and social crises in the north.
Bill and his wife Gwen are parents to four adult married children, twelve grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
STEVEN CARLETON, under the mentorship of Bill Prankard, has become an equally dynamic minister of the Gospel across Canada, including the far north. His powerful story of healing after sexual abuse, along with his Inuit heritage, resonates with the youth of Canada’s Arctic as he spearheads Arctic Hope, which is designed to bring healing and hope, and prepare Inuit young people as effective future leaders. Steven’s wife Becky is an integral part of the ministry, and they have two beautiful little girls.
