This is a gathering of those who work and pray for justice for a time of listening to and encouraging one another.
The Justice conference is meant to be a time of refreshing and equipping for those who work for justice. Our focus will be local, regional and international initiatives.
We will have a plenary speaker, workshops, sharing of minitries, dialog and discussions
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.
The lunch and learn event for Church Administrative Professionals was introduced in 2015 and continues to provide great learning opportunities about church office operations and efficiency.

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 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. The key areas discussed were:
- Spiritual Formation
- Emotional and Cultural Intelligence
- Leadership and Management
- Marriage and Family
