Canada West Mission Conference in Regina

to have an “E” Component


As your congregation considers electing delegates for the upcoming Canada West Mission Conference in Regina, keep this in mind: Electronic participation in the conference will be enabled, just as it was for the Electronic Mission Conference in February of this year.

This means that if members would like to be delegates, but do not expect to be able to attend the conference, they will be able to fully participate in the business meeting. Details are yet to be worked out. It is expected that the participation sites will be restricted to a congregation’s building, as it was for the February E-Conference. This will be the first choice because all of the systems at congregational sites are known to work. If a congregation has one or two delegates who wish to participate from an alternate site, they will need to contact Steve Thompson to discuss that possibility. That option may or may not be able to be supported depending on technical details.

Also: Mission Conference “WebCasts”

In addition to the two-way business meeting participation arrangements, it is hoped that we will be able to provide an online video feed of various components of the Mission Conference Weekend. Details are yet to be worked out and finalized, but sessions to be offered will likely include the business meeting on Saturday morning, the Sunday morning worship service, and possibly selected other sessions. Watch for the program. If you will not be in Regina for the conference but would really like to see and hear one or more specific sessions on your computer, let us know! Contact Debra Donohue at A schedule of sessions to be webcast will be publicized no later than mid-August.

Delegates for World Conference April 2019

If you would like to be a delegate at World Conference, please submit your name to Debra Donohue  by August 1, 2018

Counsellor Needed for Junior Camp

at Hills of Peace


Canada West Mission is in need of one adult male to be a counsellor at Hills of Peace Junior Camp (July 14-18). We have reached capacity and will need to turn campers away without these needed volunteers. Please give serious consideration to this need. CWM camping programs are an important part of our ministry and they are flourishing. The majority of the youth we see do not attend church on Sunday mornings but they attend and are bringing friends with them.

For further information, please contact Lisa Neudorf


Samish Camp Mungai-Camp Staff and Cook neededimage_thumb3_thumb_thumb_thumb_thumb[2]

Camp Mungai, Junior Camp ages 8-11 years old, is looking for counselors for August 12-16 this summer, especially male counselors.  If you are a registered youth worker, love kids, and want to spend more time in paradise (Samish Island)  please contact Christine Campbell,

I, Debra Donohue, was a counselor at Camp Mungai last year and it was one of the highlights of my summer.

Thanks for supporting our camping program!
