The Church Administrative Professionals’ Symposium is a day that has been specially designed for those who serve the church in the front office - a day of practical equipping and training, and a refreshing day of renewal. Usually held once per year, the  CAPS event is organized for and by administrative professionals working in church settings, and is designed to help them effectively serve the ministries of their church.

In addition to inspiring plenary speakers, a number of guest speakers typically offer breakout sessions on a wide range of practical topics. We also welcome a number of exhibitors whose services and/or products may be helpful in your work.

CAPS is an initiative of the E P Wahl Centre at Taylor, in cooperation with volunteers from a variety of local churches.

Healthy Pastors Initiative

Serving those in ministry is at the heart of the Healthy Pastors Initiative. Creating a community of care for fellow pastors, for discussion, prayer and peer support is another vital purpose for this initiative.

Through workshops and retreats like THRiVE, pastors and leaders will explore the practical issues that need to be considered as well as topics such as: the common pitfalls of ministry, such as isolation and stress, and focus on some best practices to foster long-term ministry health. Among the key areas to be discussed are:
  • Spiritual Formation
  • Self-Care
  • Emotional and Cultural Intelligence
  • Leadership and Management
  • Marriage and Family

onWORD Conference logoThe onWORD Conference is an annual event that is centered on experiencing and enjoying the Scripture.

Each year a main speaker tackles a central theme on a Bible topic, and other speakers and artists help us encounter and enjoy the text in new, memorable and (we trust) life-changing ways. These workshops and breakout sessions are where scholars and Bible teachers will help us journey through scripture, exploring, discovering, tasting and understanding. 

This falls onWORD: the conference -- was a journey through scripture. It's an exploration of Biblical proportions!

Taylor's 2016 event was hosted by and co-presented with McKernan Baptist Church. Our featured speaker was Rob Loane of VantagePoint3, along with a number of other speakers. 

The theme of the event was KEEPING COMPANY WITH GOD. In a variety of creative ways, we explored the Scriptures and spent time with the Father.
