2019 World Conference Delegate Registration Fees
to be Reimbursed by Mission Centre!

This is for the information of any member considering being a delegate from the Canada West Centre to the 2019 World Conference, scheduled for April 6 to 13, 2019.

This will be a special conference. Besides the usual business of the church, there will be special celebrations in honour of the 25th anniversary of the dedication of the Community of Christ Temple in Independence, Missouri.

The Canada West Mission Centre will once again assist delegates with the registration fee for the conference. We do not know for sure what that fee will be. In 2016 it was $140 in US funds, which converted to an average of about $190 Canadian at that time.

Undertaking the responsibility of being a delegate to World Conference includes a significant financial commitment. Although a small portion of total expenses, the Canada West Mission Centre is pleased to be able to provide this assistance.

Please consider your availability to serve as a World Conference Delegate. Any confirmed member in good standing is eligible. There is no age requirement and no priesthood requirement. Advise Debra Donohue debra@communityofchrist.ca of your interest as soon as possible
