In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Pope Benedict’s XV’s apostolic letter, Pope Francis reminded all Christians of their missionary responsibility conferred at Baptism, in his directive on the coming Extraordinary Missionary Month—to bring the Gospel to everyone.
This declaration was the beginning of a movement of God in the Church and in Vancouver. As we approached the Extraordinary Mission Month, Archbishop Michael also called us to step boldly into sharing the Gospel in a time where the Church and our culture need truth now more than ever.
The Upper Room Conference is a response to this movement of God. Disciples from all over our cities are gathering to be challenged, equipped, and inspired to proclaim the name of Jesus. But this goes far beyond just one day. The Upper Room Conference is the official launch of Proclaim, a movement to awaken disciples across our cities and spread the name of Jesus in their homes and communities.
