“A wide door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.” 1 Cor. 16:9
The annual BCMB Convention is a gathering of representatives from Mennonite Brethren churches and ministry partners across BC. Together, we will celebrate God’s faithfulness and work through the various business items that have arisen throughout our BCMB family this year. As church members, pastors, and elders, we value your input and prayer as we seek to multiply Christ-centred churches to see the people of BC transformed by the Good News of Jesus Christ. We look forward to seeing you there!
Friday evening will begin with dinner at 5:30 pm (doors open at 5:00 pm following Pastor’s Equipping Day) at Willow Park Church in Kelowna for those who are travelling and would like to join us. Dinner will be an additional $10 per person. Please indicate whether you will be joining us when you register.
The Celebration Service will begin in the worship centre at 7:00 pm. Please join us for worship, testimonies, communion, and a message from Conference Minister, Rob Thiessen.
Registration Check-in for Convention begins at 8:00 am on Saturday morning.
