Dear Friends, We are putting the final touches on our 2017 District Conference at Abbotsford Pentecostal Assembly this March 6th to 8th. We are anticipating some amazing gatherings with exceptional keynote speakers, business sessions and two leadership communities. Registration Opens at 3-5pm and 6:30-7:30pm on Monday, March 6th. Conference schedule can be found online here.
We’re delighted to present the ministry of Rev. Kevin Garratt on Monday evening (7pm), who was recently released from a prison in China, after being arrested on very serious charges of espionage. Kevin and Julia will share their story of faith and resilience, as they inspire us to live courageously in complex socio-political times.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, we will interact with Dr. David Kinnaman during an evening plenary session, Wednesday morning plenary, and a leadership panel discussion on Wednesday afternoon. David is the author of the bestselling books Good Faith, You Lost Me and unChristian. He is president of Barna Group, a leading research and communications company that works with churches, nonprofits, and businesses.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, we will also interact with Rev. Judith Crist who serves as the Co-Pastor of Hillsong Church, in Phoenix, Arizona. Judith and her husband Terry pastor a multi-site church with campuses in Mesa, Scottsdale and downtown Phoenix. They are preparing to launch a new campus in Tucson this year. Judith will offer a leadership workshop on Wednesday afternoon and close our conference as the plenary speaker on Wednesday evening.
