Doug will inspire and encourage us in reflecting on our theme scripture: 1 Thessalonians 1:2-3.

Doug gives administrative, organizational, relational and spiritual leadership to Mennonite Church Canada. He promotes spiritually vibrant congregations actively engaged in God’s mission in the world. We are excited that he is able to join us in-person at this year's Annual Church Gathering. Please pray for him as he listens for and follows God's lead in his preparations for our time together.

We invite you to study and reflect, both individually and congregationally, on 1 Thessalonians 1:2-3 as we prepare for our gathering in April.

Registration will open at the end of March.

Be inspired by the hope we find in Jesus, hear stories of inspiration and experience the wonder and mystery of God when we meet together as a family of congregations. We anticipate and celebrate full participation from congregations as delegate discussion and decision will be on both Friday evening and Saturday. More information will be available here as it becomes available. SAVE THE DATE!
