Description

A Conversation on Mission: Migration, Mission, and Multiplication

Missions in the 21st century has changed. Canada is developing some innovative approaches to engaging in ministry. Dr. Narry Santos, Dr. Robert Cousins, and Rev. Thich Truong will be sharing their experiences of engaging in mission in Canada. Narry Santos came as a New Canadian from the Philippines and was instrumental in the development of six new churches across Canada. In partnership with Robert Cousins director of the TIM Centre, they have created innovative training initiatives for leadership development in the local church. Thich Truong has been reflecting on how to engage his generation, and was involved in church work in Ottawa where he created pathways for their local church to reach into the neighbourhood and participate in intercultural relationships and ministries. Join us for an evening of coffee and conversations as we reflect on how God’s Kingdom can be advanced through collaborate partnerships.
