BC Men’s Retreat – January 25-27, 2019

Register by:  Monday, January 14, 2019

Registrations are low. 10 attendees are needed for this event to proceed.

Men Talking Women, Gender Non-Binary and Jesus” Apostle Art Smith is looking forward to sharing and having fun with those who attend the BC Men’s Retreat. Together we’ll consider God’s expansive love for all of humanity. We’ll take a look at the distinctive approach Community of Christ takes to the study of scripture. We’ll learn, in particular, about how the gospel lifts up and values those who were not valued much by society at the time. We’ll look at Old Testament and New Testament stories and discover hidden meaning and keys to unlock hidden meaning so that we can be more knowledgeable in our use of the Bible. We’ll look for application of ancient Bible texts to our lives in our day and age.

Event Director:  Ed Salahub (

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.

Delegates, please do NOT register on your own.  Debra will contact you for confirmation of your attendance and register all delegates as a group.

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 of your interest as soon as possible
