Long-term Desired Outcome
In Development for 2019
Other initiatives in development include: a research project with a collective of church planting networks, investigating and re-imagining the role of bi-vocation in ministry, funding and impact; a North American conference for ISM workers in Canada in 2019; a Centre for theological, intercultural and practical training of ISM workers, in Toronto; online resources to help ethnic churches and mission to their communities in Canada; nationwide consultation on mission and the workplace to contribute to a Global Lausanne Forum in Manila in 2019.
Lausanne’s focus on “connecting influencers and ideas for global mission” applies to current institutional and thought leaders and to young emerging leaders. Identifying and enlisting mentors to build into the next generation will be an ongoing focus as we prepare for the future of ministry in Canada and from Canada: our global future.
