Leadership Conference 2018

Leadership Conference 2018

Dear Ministers/Leaders,  

Greetings to you in the Mighty and Exalted  name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ!   I also extend to you and your fellowship many blessings for the Christmas season.  


I am once again excited to issue you and your entire leadership team an invitation to the Eastern Canada’s 2018 Leadership Conference.  It will be held on Saturday, January 27, 2018. 

This conference has become an annual gathering for Eastern Canada’s leaders to focus on the development of the critical practices necessary for bringing our Leadership Development vision to fruition. Also, it is an opportunity to help local churches develop authentic disciples of Jesus Christ.   Each year, the Leadership Development session strives to equip and empower leaders for the challenges of ministry, as well as to refresh and inspire you to have a greater impact on your community. This year is not exception. 

Our hope for this year’s conference is to give you an opportunity to deepen your understanding of God’s Kingdom and your role as an agent of God.  We anticipate some of the outcomes from this year’s conference will be:  

  • To embrace the FIVE commitments of a Healthy Church
  • To go through an Introduction of the “Taking Your Church’s Pulse” Tool
  • To develop a deeper understanding of the vision of Eastern Canada
  • To  examine the personal role each individual plays in leadership development at the local church level
  • To expand the understanding of the symbiotic relationship between the Administrative Office and the local church
  • To harness insights and best practices of the leaders in Eastern Canada
  • To provide a forum for new and emerging leaders to share their voices  

I am extending a personal invitation to all ministers, members, seasoned existing leaders, leaders in training, emerging leaders and youth. 

This will help in achieving one of our conference goals of providing a platform for new and emerging leaders to participate on a national level.   

As you make preparations to attend, please bear in mind that the cost of the conference is $65.00 per person.  In order to encourage our youth to attend, a special youth rate of $50.00 will apply to any youth application.  The fee includes some light refreshments and a lunch.  The early registration deadline is January 16, 2018.   A late fee of $15.00 will apply after the due date.  Please help me and the Administrative Office team to prepare for your attendance by completing and submitting the attached registration package.  Should you have any questions, please contact myself or the Administrative Office for further conference information.  I look forward to seeing you all. Please note that there is a venue change this year.  The location of the conference will be at The Living Arts Centre,  4141 Living Arts Drive,  Mississauga, Ontario L5B 4B8.  

Yours in His Service,
