This biannual EMC youth retreat is focussed on discipleship for students grade 9-12. It features main sessions and workshops, entertainment guests, recreation activities and tons of worship in song. It is planned for and aimed at EMC students in our churches across the country. It takes place on the Briercrest Bible College campus in Caronport, Saskatchewan.
The Conference Council is the twice-annual General Meeting of the EMC. It is scheduled as part of the Convention weekend in summer and again near the end of December. Among the regular business of the Council is electing members to EMC boards and reviewing and approving the annual Conference budget. It is also a time to network, hear reports of work being done within EMC and its outreach programs and discuss issues of concern in the Conference. It is also the body with final authority on Conference policies and these decisions are made at the meetings.
The EMC Convention is the annual EMC gathering for the purpose of worshipping, networking and planning together. It is held every summer on a weekend. The weekend includes a conference council meeting, a ministerial meeting and three inspirational sessions as well as activities and meals together. The location varies every year as different regions take turns hosting. Speakers may be from EMC or may be authors and Christian leaders from other parts of the Christian church.
This annual EMC retreat is for those between the ages of 18 and 25ish. It features main sessions and workshops and uniquely lots of interaction and relaxed fellowship throughout the weekend. Currently the event happens in both Manitoba and Alberta, with more locations hopefully coming soon.
