Believers who serve in compassionate and justice ministries in Edmonton will gather this fall for a conference that is designed to encourage and inspire. More than a simple conference, this is the beginning of a local conversation about needs and resources, and an invitation for all of us to participate in God’s mission of justice.
Our featured speaker is Rick Tobias, who has served at the Yonge Street Mission in downtown Toronto for 30 years. In three sessions, Rick will discuss the role of justice in seeking the Kingdom, the emphasis on justice in scripture, and the example and teaching of Jesus on this issue.
Numerous other speakers and presenters will address related topics and issues, and the great hope of conference organizers is that this will be a time of discussion. #JusticeYEG is, in fact, the start of a local conversation about justice.
This event will take place November 15-16, 2013 at First Baptist Church – everyone is welcome.
