Cultural Fluency: Diasporas, Migrants, and New Canadians: Ministering to the People Next Door
Friday, April 28, 2017: Registration 6:00-6:30pm; Presentation 6:30-9:00pm

DESCRIPTION: Canada is a nation of immigrants. In recent years, migration has accelerated. Consequently, Canadian cities have become "the Arrival Cities" and rural communities have been transformed into “Global Villages.” Our congregations are now neighbours to, not only Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses, but also to Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, and even European neopagans. This seminar is designed to help participants better understand the “People Next Door” and more effectively reach out to friends and neighbours -- ushering them to become "Family" members and fellow pilgrims to the City of God.
FACILITATOR: Sadiri Joy Tira (DMiss, DMin). Sadiri Tira, more commonly known as Joy, is a missions practitioner who travels extensively around the globe mobilizing Christians in diaspora, particularly the globally scattered Filipinos to help fulfill the Great Commission. Born and raised in the Philippines, Joy and his wife Lulu immigrated to Canada in 1981 and are now naturalized Canadians. They are based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada — one of Canada’s top destinations for new immigrants and foreign workers. Joy serves as the Lausanne Movement‘s Senior Associate for Diasporas, and diasporaNet Convener at the Jaffray Centre.
