About

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives. While we cannot predict the future, we can know with certainty that God’s promise to us is “Yes” in Christ Jesus. God is for us. That is the theme of our online conference that we will stream on November 13–14, 2020. Tickets cost $10 or are free if you cannot afford them.

The online conference will feature both main talks and roundtable discussions. We hope the conference will both encourage that God—despite all else—is for you. And we hope the roundtable discussions will equip you to respond in a Christ-centred way to the current realities that we face in Canada.
