The 2016 theme was “Cultivating a Culture of Dare: Ministry Vision & Strategy”.  Forums ran in twelve Canadian cities from April to June with over 800 church leaders in attendance.  Guided by best selling Canadian author and faculty member from Ambrose University College in Calgary, Mark Buchanan, a great time of discussion and learning was had by all.  Mark explored fresh insights & offered practical ideas to help church leaders cast a fresh – even daring vision for doing church in their community! Thank you to Mark Buchanan and to all of our volunteers who helped to make the 2016 forums a great success.

Did you miss the Church Leader Forums this year or just want a refresher? All of the resources from the 2016 Culture of Dare Forum (and past forums) are now available online including the video, powerpoint slides and resource booklet.
