- A weekend of relaxed and insightful renewal of friendship and faith -

For over a decade, City in Focus has hosted British Columbians from diverse backgrounds and professions for a weekend of rest, refreshment, encouragement, and growth with new and old friends.

Our theme is always focused on experiencing God’s presence through community.

This year, we are excited to feature Shaila Visser as our main speaker. Shaila is the National Director of Alpha Canada and serves on the Board of Regent College. A gifted communicator and strategic leader, Shaila has been recognized as one of the Top 100 Most Influential Christian Women in Canada.

Shaila has a heart for people coming to know Jesus and is passionate about helping the local church flourish. She lives in Vancouver with her husband, Ryan, a Vancouver police officer, and their two four-legged family members, Blade and Quigley. Shaila and Ryan have experienced BC Leadership Weekend as guests in the past and understand the nature of this special annual gathering.


We warmly welcome back the accomplished musical duo of Carolyn Arends and Spencer Capier.

Carolyn is an award-winning singer/songwriter, author, speaker, college instructor, recent grad school graduate, wife and mother. She is also the Director of Education for Renovaré, a wide-reaching organization that encourages and nurtures spiritual renewal. Carolyn lives in Surrey with her husband, Mark, and their two children, Ben and Beth.

Spencer is a talented multi-instrumentalist and producer. He has also worked extensively with Vancouver’s Pacific Theatre as an actor, musician and music director. Spencer lives in North Vancouver with his teenage son, Sam, and his wife Kikine. When not on stage or in the studio, he spends his time teaching Philosophy and Critical Thinking at West Vancouver Secondary School. 


There will be time throughout the weekend to listen to people’s stories and enjoy small group discussion times together. But we have also purposefully built in plenty of free time so you can create the experience you need. Get active in the hotel gym, outdoor pool, hot tub or yoga studio. Hop on the free shuttle and explore nearby Whistler Village. Take a leisurely stroll around the lake. Enjoy coffee and conversation on the heated patio of the lounge. Or simply take a nap!
