The Balancing Act
  -  Steinke, Peter

Dr. Peter Steinke, consultant and counselor, introduces the concept of the congregation as an emotional system. Dr. Ed Friedman and Dr. Murray Bowen introduced these concepts and Dr. Steinke has adapted and reinterpreted them for congregations. Using cellular biology and research on the human brain alongside Biblical theology,

Dr. Steinke empowers the viewer to take responsibility for their functioning in an emotional system. Blaming, victim-behavior, secrets, triangles, are all the result of adapting to the anxiety that is always present in an organization. This is not a “how-to,” but is rather a “how-to-see” presentation. Those who use this understanding of organizations begin to see the powerful role of mature leaders in building a healthy congregation.

Keith came out of the research industry to plant a series of house churches in Calgary a number of years ago. Now he has moved to Vancouver with a call to do the same.

If you want to know about the house church movement and strategies in Canada, Keith is the one to talk to.

 

Missional – Nick Brotherwood: “Fresh Expressions in Canada”

Ten years ago, God launched a fresh new movement in England called Fresh Expressions. Many new churches and styles of churches were initiated and Nick has been connected near the centre of this movement. Now, Nick and Fresh Expressions are working towards seeing this happen in Canada as well.

Equipping – Wendy Gritter: “Navigating Diverse Perspectives on Gay Issues”

Her gentle approach demonstrates both a deeply rooted biblical perspective and the compassion of Christ on this subject. This workshop will be valuable to those who live in neighbourhoods with gay people… in other words all of us.

 

Neighbourhoods –Geoff Ryan: “Stained Glass Urbanism and Community Development”

How can the Church interact better with the public square? Can we shift from the sanctuaries of our churches and the bedrooms of the nation, away from issues of personal piety and morality into the boardroom and studio and the streets, influencing wider issues of social justice and public morality? Major Geoff Ryan represents The Salvation Army, is the coordinator of the 614 network of urban faith communities (www.614network.com), and is an Advisory Board member with the Christian Community Development Association (www.ccda.org). Geoff has published several books of essays.

 

Context – Henry Schorr and John Pritchard: “Mega Church to House Church”

Henry is known as the Pastor of one of Canada’s largest and most influential churches. Yet, he is quick to recognize that there is more than one way of being church or one model to reaching our neighbourhoods. That is why Centre Street has also begun a series of House Churches led by John Pritchard. John, who is on the design team for Renov8, brings a lot of wisdom and experience to the issue of house churches. Together they will tell the Centre Street story and talk about how big churches can be creative in reaching neighbourhoods in various ways and methods.

 

Theology – Anthony Brown: “Extraordinary Instructions for Mission: Jesus’ Sending of the Twelve”

What does the Church’s first missionary journey have to say about the mission of the Church in Canada today?

Together with Juliet, they will dialogue with the workshop participants about determining where to plant churches and how to approach them.

 

Story – Tim Dickau: “Transforming a Neighbourhood: Story of Grandview Calvary”
Tim is the Senior Pastor of Grandview Calvary Baptist Church in Vancouver. There are very few churches in Canada that have had the impact on their neighbourhood that GC has had. Their story and their strategy have much to say to us across the country. They have created jobs, started housing foundations, created schools and really do “enjoy the favour” of the people in the Commercial drive area.

 

Missional – Cam Roxburgh and Hugh Halter: “From Here to There: Landing the Missional Church”

Cam is the National Director of Church Planting Canada and of Forge Canada. He pastors at Southside Community Church in Vancouver which is a multi-site church reaching four neighbourhoods.

Resourcing – James Watson: “Moolah & Momentum: The relationship between funding & new church development in Canada”

At the Imagine 2007 church planting congress a survey was conducted asking questions about many parts of the church planting experience.

James serves with the Salvation Army Nationally in Church planting and on the National Church Planting Canada Executive.

 

Equipping – Jared Siebert: “Greenhouses”

Howard is on the Forge National Team and is responsible for helping create neighbourhood churches. Karen is a Pastor at “The River” in Edmonton, works with the Christian Reform denomination in leading small groups, and is on the Forge National team. Together they will tell stories of what God is doing in Edmonton and challenge those present to re-imagine the way we go about reaching our neighbourhoods.

 

Context – Wagdi Iskander: “Ministering to Muslims”

Wagdiʼs life story is simply remarkable. From the Sudan, raised in a Muslim family, Wagdi had a dramatic experience where he was introduce to Jesus. Through trials and danger, he eventually went to Europe and then on to Canada where he has Pastored and ministered for 20 years.

His model is helpful for all and gives keen insights sociologically and biblically into seeing the redemption of society as well as individuals.

 

Story – Hugh Halter: “The Tangible Kingdom”

Many are familiar with Hugh Halter and his book the Tangible Kingdom. It has made a huge impact across North America due to both the style and the content of what he has written. The Kingdom of God is here now and God is at work. In this workshop Hugh will tell the Story of Adullam (his home church) and encourage listeners to explore ways to see the Kingdom of God at work in their own neighbourhood.

 

Missional – Juliet Kilpin: “Oops, I think we’ve started a church planting movement”

Juliet is the leader of Urban Expression (www.urbanexpression.org.uk). This is a church planting movement in inner cities across England.

Equipping – Jay Pinney: “Dealing with Stress in the Planterʼs Life”

Jay is a member of the Church Planting Canada national team. He serves as a missionary in Quebec and teaches, counsels and coaches pastors and planters in many circles.

Neighbourhoods – George Werner: “3rd Spaces”

George is the National Director for Mission Canada in the PAOC, and serves on the executive of Church planting Canada. George teaches about, speaks about and fosters all kinds of missional activity in Canada through local churches and mission agencies. One of his passions is finding ways to meet neighbours in a neutral space. In this workshop George will be exploring with us ways to create places for normal people to hang out together and explore spiritual conversations.

 

Context – Ray Aldred: “Reaching First Nations”
Many are familiar with the ministry of Ray Aldred. Ray is a teacher, writer, lecturer and advocate for the First Nations people in Canada. Ray was a plenary speaker for Church Planting Canada at the Toronto Congress in 2005, and now returns to lead us in this workshop designed to help us minister to and among First Nations people in Canada.

 

Theological Story – Joe Manafo: “One Size Fits All”

Joe is a planter in Ontario for the Free Methodists. Two years ago, he ventured across our country recording stories of church plants in a variety of locations. We caught a glimpse of some of his work at Imagine in Ottawa in 2007. The project is now finished and Joe will be screening the video, as well as sharing reflections on what he has seen of the church in Canada during these years.
