An Online Learning Event for leaders (educators, clergy, elders) in The Presbyterian Church in Canada

Wednesday, October 25
11:00am – 3:00pm EST

Actively watching and listening for God can bring life out of death for churches in crisis today. Join us for a conversation with Dr. Andrew Root and the Rev. Dr. Blair Bertrand based on learnings from their book, When Church Stops Working. Using clear steps and practices, church leaders are invited to stop the endless cycle of doing more. Instead, they are shown how to simply ‘be’ in God’s presence. During our day together we will build community, learn from Andrew and Blair, and share time in small groups with other ministry leaders.
