Leadership Forums are training sessions for children and family ministry leaders, focused on a particular area of leadership or discipleship. These days are bi-annual (Spring and Fall), in different cities throughout the Western Ontario District. They are designed to be practical and interactive.

Forums are created for children and family ministry pastors primarily. If you wish to bring an intern, please let us know in advance. These days are not designed for your volunteer team.

All forums run from 10:00am - 2:00pm (unless otherwise noted below), and lunch is included. Cost is free. Book your calendars now for the upcoming forums!


TOPIC: Interpersonal dynamics within a ministry context

Somebody once said ministry would be awesome if it there were no people involved. Have you ever thought about the fact that God has brought you to your place of ministry, not just for those you minister to, but also to work for and alongside the other pastors and leaders in your context? Join us for the upcoming Spring Forum where Cindy Rose and Wayne Giroux will be exploring healthy team mentality in ministry. Whether your ministry has two leaders or twenty this forum is for you!
