Description

The Journey Continues in Winnipeg...

Ma'wa'chi'hi'to'tan is Plains Cree for "let us gather together." This April we will gather for a unique opportunity to learn, connect, and grow. Join Indigenous Jesus followers and people ministering in an Indigenous context from as many as 70 Christian agencies and churches from across Canada.

What does the gospel of Jesus look and sound like in an Indigenous context? How can a person be fully Indigenous and fully Christian? What does Indigenous leadership look like? Given the harmful legacy of colonialism how can we engage in ministry among Indigenous people in ways that are healing and liberating?

This gathering is an opportunity to spend two days with Indigenous leaders who have journeyed with these and other questions. Let's learn how to journey together in a good way!
