FINDING OUR VOICE – Proclaiming the Gospel

Thinking Shrewdly 2018 | April 17-18, 2018

Vision Ministries Canada’s National consultation.
Featured speaker, Alan Hirsch—author, consultant and mission strategist.

Our annual gathering is an opportunity to connect and to celebrate what God is doing across our network, country and the world. Through stories, seminars, speakers and conversation we hope to equip pastors and ministry catalysts to help their church communities follow God into Mission.

This year we ask the question “What does it mean to share the Gospel in the Canadian context in 2018?” As we follow God into our neighbourhoods and networks, how might we pursue conversations about Jesus? This discussion will shape much of our time together in April.

Not only will we have a number of opportunities to hear from Alan Hirsch, we’ll also engage the issue through a series of seminars and peer-learning forums.
