For the first time in its 34-year history, Missions Fest Vancouver will incorporate several mini-conferences, which organizers describe as “opportunities for you to learn from experts who are collaborating together to help you go deeper into a subject than can be done in a seminar.”

The theme of the three-day event (January 27 – 29 at the Vancouver Convention Centre) is Justice and the Gospel; the five mini-conferences (all on the first day) will focus on these issues:

  • Fruitful Friendships with Muslims
  • Residential Schools: Responding to Our Shared History
  • Earthkeeping as Mission: Caring for People and Creation through Small Scale Sustainable Agriculture, Locally and Internationally
  • Ending Poverty Together Boot Camp: Rethinking Causes and Solutions
  • No Lone Rangers: A Collaborative Approach to Missionary Care
