Description

Diaspora and the Local Church in Canada

The Canadian demographic continues to change as our communities welcome people from every corner of the world. Learning to live and work together as Canadians in our multicultural context is a significant undertaking for local businesses, communities, and churches. This seminar provides practical insights for those wanting to reach out and connect with the nations who have moved into our neighbourhoods, and examines how New Canadians also have missional roles as agents of community transformation.

About the Keynote Speaker: Dr. 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 mission of God. 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 — one of Canada’s top destinations for new immigrants and foreign workers. Joy serves as the Lausanne Movement‘s Senior Associate for Diasporas and is the Jaffray Centre Convener for the diasporaNet initiative.

Guest Panel: local practitioners will be sharing about their experiences working in the Calgary context.
