The call of the wild! Doing ministry these days is like trekking into unknown territory. Join with leaders from a variety of congregations and experiences to explore this unmapped missional journey ahead. Let’s learn to navigate, watch for the signs of the Spirit’s leading and share ideas, best practices and dreams for this holy hinterland. Christ beckons and we venture together!
Our special guest speaker is Archbishop Linda Nicholls. She has a love for nature, hiking and canoeing. She also is gifted with profound insights related to how the church of the future is to be shaped. Growing disciples and spiritual formation are passions for her.
Formerly the Bishop of Huron and Area Bishop of Trent-Durham, Diocese of Toronto, Archbishop Linda has extensive experience in congregational development and teaching. In her commitment to serve faith communities across Canada, she leads the church in discerning and pursuing the mission of God. We plan for her to be with us in person.
