The Covid pandemic has raised new questions about the future of Christian ministry in a changing world. This interactive one-day conference is an opportunity to explore strategies for adaptive change in a new environment. The focus will be on connecting congregations with their local contexts, building inter-cultural community, and responding to ministry environments marked by secularism, pluralism, and diversity. Featuring an engaging keynote speaker as well as Christian leaders from around the region who are engaging in innovative and transformative ministries, join us to reflect, discuss, and learn as we look together with hope toward ministry in a world shaped by the pandemic.
Takes place at Church of St. Mark and St. Peter, 1650 Rue Decelles, Saint-Laurent, QC H4L 2E6. Parking available, Metro: Du Collège.
