Upcoming Events

January 13 – Listening and Learning Together

Never has listening been such an important practice particularly as we consider indigenous issues. For us to redress the legacy with action, listening must proceed all we do. Considering the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s report and the ’94 Calls To Action’ we all have an opportunity to listen and learn together. As we do this what are we to understand, and how might we respond?

February 10 – Decolonizing Evangelism

The ethos, and delivery of ministry and evangelism can unwittingly be characterized by unhelpful approaches. What are the key elements to consider when seeking to connect with our communities today? What shifts will we need to make to overcome a malaise in evangelism? How important is it for us to understand and adapt to cultural differences?

March 10 – Dreams as Mission

In many Muslim countries God is using dreams to speak to people resulting in amazing stories of transformation. What does the Bible say about dreams and their purpose? How can dreams be an avenue for missional engagement? Could God use dreams to reach people in Canada today?
