It’s my privilege to invite you to our District Conference on the Ministry from March 7 to 9, 2016, in the beautiful city of Langley. Our conference will begin with a Missions Banquet which features newly commissioned global workers who are being sent out to various parts of our world. This conference will be hosted by Pastor Derrick Hamre, and the wonderful staff and volunteers of Christian Life Assembly. If you live outside the Lower Mainland, we would encourage you to extend your visit to our District Conference in Langley, and enjoy some of the beautiful sights, sounds and activities offered all around the Lower Mainland.
Our conference theme this year is “FIRST FOLLOWERS”, which highlights one of our district’s missional priorities of Leadership Development. Our theme was developed from the Biblical passage found in 1 Peter 2:21, which says, “To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.”
For the past several years we have invited specific plenary speakers to help us focus upon our shared missional priorities. This year’s keynote speakers include, Patti Pierce-Miller (Lead Pastor of Evangel Church in Montreal) and Matthew Barnett (Founding Pastor of the Dream Centre in Los Angeles, California). We will also hear from several excellent presenters, including a round table conversation with Ray & Fran Deurksen from Southland Church, Steinbach Manitoba. who will challenge us during the afternoon learning communities. We will also be gathering around tables for breakfast, just before engaging our annual business meeting on Tuesday morning.
Please register for our Conference on the Ministry this year with an expectancy and fervour to hear from God’s Holy Spirit. We encourage you to use the Eventbrite electronic registration system which is available here.
We’re looking forward to seeing you at our conference this year.
We’re better together,
Ken, Dave and Darwin
