New Leaders' Orientation

March 18-19, 2017

The Evangelical Mennonite Conference values the contributions made by new pastors that may be unfamiliar with our history, culture, workings and even the potential tensions that can be expected when entering a new conference.

With that in mind another New Leaders Orientation is being planned for March 18-19, 2017 (right on the heels of the Steinbach Bible College Leadership Conference).

If your church has a new senior pastor, associate pastor or youth pastor (on salary) who is not familiar with the EMC, then please plan to send that staff member to this event. If you are that new pastor, please make arrangements to attend and bring your spouse.

The schedule will include supper on Saturday night followed by a time of relaxation, getting acquainted and sharing faith stories.

On Sunday there will be four sessions:

  • Highlights of Anabaptist / EMC history
  • How the EMC Works
  • Dealing with Church Culture (preparing for potential tensions)
  • Looking into the Future

Dismissal: Sunday, 4:00 pm

The sessions will be held at Wilderness Edge in Pinawa. MB (90 min. drive from SBC).

Please RSVP to Erica Fehr by February 17, 2017.
