Keynote Sessions

Breakout Sessions

Some breakout leaders have chosen to share their handouts, which we have made available below. This page will be updated as handouts become available.

The hope for post-Christian Canada

Jon Morrison

Have you noticed our friends, neighbours and family members becoming more secular? Have you noticed that people seem less likely to attend church than ever before? That’s what the statistics confirm as well. In this session, Jon explores the deep Christian roots in which Canada grew up in and what Christians must do to re-introduce the gospel to our country. We have reasons for hope that God would revive Canada once again. Don’t miss this opportunity to be informed and inspired.

Discipline in 2017

We want the best for the kids, but sometimes we’re faced with kids who challenge the rules. Let’s take a look behind the child’s behavior and discover the “why.” We will also take a look at the biblical pattern of discipline.

Living and serving from a Kingdom of God perspective

Leigh McGough

In a busy world, with school and so many different things competing for your time, how do you know what to get involved with and how to serve in your local church or ministry that will make an impact on the world for Jesus.

Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. (Isaiah 43:1b ESV)
