Our 5th annual Engage Missions Conference will be taking place on October 17-23.
We are really looking forward to another great week! We will have 12 or our strategic partners joining us this year and some will be with us for the first time.
Our strategic partners will be a part of many of our regular events throughout the week and as a new item this year, we will be hosting a mini conference from October 21-22. We will be looking at how we can do international missions, right here in Calgary as well as how we do international missions well around the world. The mini conference is open to all ABA churches and we are excited to celebrate together what God is doing around the world.
For more details on the various events happening throughout the week, please see the schedule below. Please register for the seminar sessions and the banquet, no later than Oct. 17. Please contact Sara-May if you have any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org."
