Event Description:

Sending. Senders. Sent.

Many churches today are trying to understand what it means to send workers into "the harvest field". We struggle to maintain missions committees, to sift through the support requests, and to balance missions budgets. Is this what God's mission is all about?

Dr. Mark Naylor (ACTS Seminary/Trinity Western University), Pastor Paul Dirks, Lead Pastor of New West Community Church and Lydia Nigh (SIM) will propose a shift in our paradigms of church missions programs to disciple people passionate for the Gospel and for the world, and to send them well. This affects the Church, the senders and those being sent.

Everyone is welcome, especially disciple-makers, church missions leaders and committees.

Mission Central and SIM Monthly Missions Meeting are hosting this seminar. This event is free. Suggested donation for pizza and snacks is $5/person. Free on-site parking. 8 min walk from Sapperton Skytrain.

PLEASE CHECK-IN AT 11:30 a.m. REGISTERED GUESTS ONLY. NO WALK-INS.

Pastor Paul Dirks, Lead Pastor of New West Community Church.

Paul lives in the neighbourhood of Sapperton with his wife Rachel, and his five children. He came to know Christ at a young age through the godly influence of his parents and thinks that such a conversion is as exciting as any. Paul has a big smile and loud laugh. He enjoys basketball, board games, and electronic music. Paul loves preaching and teaching and enjoys books by John Piper, CS Lewis, GK Chesterton, and the Puritans.

Lydia Nigh Mentor, disciple, disciple-maker. Mobilizer/Church Engagement with SIM Canada and FamilyLife Canada

God calls us to make disciples of all nations. Mentoring and discipleship is how Lydia moves people closer to Jesus and into the nations, one step at a time. Often it’s through strengthening their relationships, building up their faith or equipping them to step out into their mission field. She loves the challenge of living in one of the most secular parts of Canada and bringing light to dark places.
