Hope in the City – Ottawa
Novmeber 17th, 2016
Shaw Centre, Trillium Room
Time:7:30 to 9 am.
Speaker: Major Danielle Strickland
Danielle Strickland loves Jesus. And she loves people. Her aggressive compassion has loved people firsthand in countries all over the world where she has embraced, learned, cared, evangelized, taught, and exhorted individuals and crowds to surrender to the boundless love of our great God and Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.
She loves the more fragile in communities around the world. Over the years that has led her to back alleys and late night streets to partner with Jesus in rescuing those caught up in drugs and homelessness and prostitution and despair. And it has led her to the halls of government and corridors of commercial power to see laws changed and practices transformed so that people aren’t trafficked and children aren’t enslaved.
She has sought to cultivate authentic Christian community in deprived neighborhoods on the way to loving the last and the lost and the least into God’s Kingdom.
Danielle loves the Body of Christ. God is using her to help equip followers of Jesus in discipleship, holiness, justice, and evangelism by teaching, preaching, and writing.
And Strickland loves her family – redeemed from the clutches of the enemy, generational addiction and violence, she and her husband are bringing up their children in the fear and friendship of the Lord.
Danielle has written:
- Just Imagine: the social justice agenda
- Challenging Evil: Dispatches from the front lines of radical justice
- The Liberating Truth: How Jesus Empowers Women

- Boundless; living life in overflow
Danielle is passionately committed to seeing God’s Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven, is married, and is the mother of three boys.
