Last week I posted about Tyndale’s upcoming Wesley Studies Symposium. The Wesley Studies Committee has also been hard at work planning an event aimed at a broader audience of church leaders. This will be the second time they have hosted a “Wesley Ministry Conference,” the first one featuring Timothy Tennent in 2009.
This year’s ministry conference will take place on Monday April 29 here at Tyndale, and features prominent author Leonard Sweet. Sweet is currently the E. Stanley Jones Professor of Evangelism at Drew University, in Madison, NJ, and is known as a creative thinker and exceptional communicator. The theme for the day is “Rediscovering Transformational Discipleship,” and it will also feature workshop style presentations from some experienced practitioners: Matt Eckert, and Luc and Rosetta Del Monte.
The cost is $45, and registration is available here.
Please spread the word about this important event – we are blessed to have secured Leonard Sweet as our speaker, and I’m sure it will be a fruitful day of engagement with the challenges of discipleship in today’s context.
The night before the conference, a public worship service dubbed “An Evening in the Spirit of Wesley” will be taking place at Timothy Eaton Memorial Church in Toronto (7PM). This service will also feature Leonard Sweet, along with The Salvation Army North York Temple Band and organist Rachel Mahon.
Hopefully many of you will be able to make one or both of these events!
