Because of the radical, life-transforming gospel of Jesus Christ, we are COMPELLED to preach the good news to all people near and far. That was the Apostle Paul’s mission and that is the mission Jesus gave us. This mission is urgent, important and motivated from deep within: we are compelled because we are so personally moved by our source Jesus.

Join together with Mennonite Brethren from across Canada at Gathering 2016 as we worship our King and explore how we can proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ across our multicultural landscape. We will come together to experience community with our national faith family. We will engage in equipping opportunities and grow in our awareness of the ministry needs and opportunities across Canada. We will seek the Spirit’s leading and pursue discernment on strategic issues and we will see what God is doing.

See you in Toronto!

Willy Reimer, Executive Director, Canadian Conference of MB Churches

Gathering is a great opportunity for us to make new friends and reconnect with old ones. We invite you to attend as we pray and discern together what it means to be “Compelled to Preach the Good News”. There will also be opportunity for conversation around conference ministry updates as we hear what God is doing among us.

We look forward to seeing you in Toronto!

Harold Froese, Executive Board, Canadian Conference of MB Churches
