How do we connect with friends and peers about our faith in an authentic way? How do we walk with friends and co-workers on their journey of faith? How can we introduce Jesus to those in our lives who have never known him – in a way that feels natural and real? The landscape of our culture has changed dramatically, altering the way in which we effectively spread the Gospel among friends who do not know Jesus. We need to learn to be missionaries in a changing landscape.
Join us for a unique opportunity to begin re-envisioning ministry for young adults in the Archdiocese of Vancouver. We invite all individuals serving in young adult ministries within the Archdiocese to participate in the process of re-envisioning ministry with us over the coming year.
Hear from the following speakers who have transformed Young Adult Ministry through relational tools:
- Alpha Canada’s Tim Gonsalves will lead us through a cultural analysis of contemporary Canadian society and what is required to effectively engage young people today
- Steven Mulder, Associate National Director for Alpha will describe the seven core principles and practices for the renewal of parish-based young adult ministry
- Fr. Harrison Ayre, Diocese of Victoria will share his story of how Alpha helped him kick-start a young adult ministry and the kind of culture Alpha established
