Event description

Description

What is a "missional church"? How is it different from typical congregations? What do they look like in action? How does a congregation begin to move in a missional direction? These are the kinds of questions we will explore at our day long retreat.

We are privileged to have as our keynote speaker Dr. Darrel Guder, recently retired from Princeton Seminary and a leader in the missional church movement. During the morning session he will help us explore these questions. The focus of the afternoon session will be a dialogue between Dr. Guder and a panel made up of people from local congregations that are already working at being missional. We will end with a Q&A time.

The event is free. Lunch will be provided (we suggest $10 for a freewill offering to cover the cost).

The new strategic plan of The Presbyterian Church in Canada encourages congregations to adopt a "missional culture." A core value of our presbytery is that we become more missional. Come and learn how your congregation can move in this direction.

This event is made possible by St. Andrew's Hall--our Presbyterian partner with the Vancouver School of Theology.

Due to capacity issues, registration will be limited to 100 participants.
