Vital Church Planting Conference

Vital Church Planting West Conference 2011: “reChurch – Take Another Look”

Mission-minded church leaders from many denominations across western Canada will come together to view church with fresh eyes at the Vital Church Planting West Conference, “reChurch - Take Another Look”.

The VCP West Conference, hosted by the Anglican Diocese of Edmonton, will be held May 26-28, 2011, at Concordia University College in Edmonton, AB.

Vital Church Planting 2011“The history of the church in the West is still very young and I think that there are areas in which we can lead,” says Diocese of Edmonton Bishop Jane Alexander. “It is time for old stereotypes to be challenged; for us as members of the church to really believe that our church is here to stay; and that in Christ we offer something that is vital to our communities.”

The VCP West conference will address the challenges and needs of church in western Canada, generating discussion about rural and indigenous ministry, urban development, family and children’s ministry, and more.

“With the great variety of speakers and workshops this conference offers, I think that people at every level of involvement and leadership (laity and clergy) will find useful tools and be encouraged about the future of the church,” says Bishop Alexander.

The conference, co-sponsored by the Wycliffe College School of Evangelism, will feature keynote addresses by the Bishop of Sheffield Steven Croft, a leader in Fresh Expressions; and Pastor Beth Fellinger, an experienced urban, suburban and rural church planter and Director of Family and Children’s Ministries at Oakridge Presbyterian Church in London, ON.

Participants will be able to choose from a variety of workshops, led by: David Ashdown, Thomas Brauer, Jonathan Connell, Steven Croft, Beth Fellinger, Oz Lorentzen, Lydia Mamakwa, Darryl Muth, Myron Penner, Nick Trussell, David Von Bieker, and Tim Wray.

Individuals registering before March 31, 2011, will receive the Early Bird rate of $230/person. Groups of three or more will also be able to register for $230/person. After March 31st, individual fees will increase by $50/person. A special student rate of $120 is also available. Meals are included in the registration fee.
