What is “Come Alive”?
The Come Alive Gospel Fest started with a vision. A vision to bring unity to the people within the Peace Region through gospel music. Our committee wanted to provide a venue for Christian Artists of all musical styles to share their music and bring people together.
Our goal is to make it a family friendly event.

Fund Raising for Charities:
The Peace River Soup Kitchen: is an effective program which helps to reduce poverty in our community. The soup kitchen began as a group effort between the poverty action committee and concerned members of the community in conjunction with several local restaurants, churches, businesses and organizations. Their vision is to see the entire community participate in this initiative.
The "Picnic in the Park” program is one that is unique in that it works alongside the Peace River Soup Kitchen in that it helps to feed the homeless in Peace River with a barbeque in the Twelve Foot Davis Park each Thursday from April – October. Many volunteers give of their time and are committed to making this program a reality in our community.
Riverside Bible Camp: Since 1939, Riverside Bible Camp has been changing lives of not only our youth, but people of all ages, by offering weekend/weeklong, family retreats and children’s camps. The programs are especially geared towards children and endeavour to bring young people an understanding of God, and of His will for men as revealed in the teaching of Jesus.
CIAM Peace Valley Radio 101.7: is a listener supported non-commercial broadcast; one of the few radio stations that does not charge broadcasters for airtime. In 2003, CIAM radio was approved by the CRTC as the first broadcast of its kind in Alberta. It also broadcasts to 22 locations in Alberta, Saskatchewan and British Columbia.
Youth For Christ: YFC has over 800 staff reaching out to nearly 200,000 youth across Canada and by God’s grace continues to grow. It is with great excitement that Youth For Christ welcomes Kahala Enns who will be playing a key role of Affiliate Director for the Peace Country YFC. She will be launching new ministries to reach unchurched youth in our area. The goal is to see transformed youth who transform their communities.
