In addition to our annual Wesley Studies Symposium, every third or fourth year Tyndale welcomes the Wesleyan community for a conference aimed at ministry leaders. Past events have featured Ben Witherington, Leonard Sweet, and Timothy Tennent. This year we are again hosting a ministry conference, back-to-back with our symposium, and preceded by an evening worship service the night before the conference.
Here are the details:
April 19 – Evening Worship Service
At 7 pm on Sunday, April 19, a Salvation Army band and the worship team from Oakwood Wesleyan Church will lead us in an evening of worship featuring a message from Dr. Gustavo Crocker, General Superintendent of the Church of the Nazarene. No registration is required.
April 20 – Wesley Ministry Conference
Dr Crocker will be the keynote speaker at our fourth Wesley Ministry Conference on April 20, 9 am – 3:30 pm. The theme for the day is The Whole Gospel in a Fragmented World: Transformational Holiness for Effective Mission, and Dr. Crocker will be supported by Dr. Joel Thiessen, who runs the Floushing Congregations Institute at Ambrose University where he teaches. Registration is $50 ($25 for students).
April 21 – Wesley Studies Symposium
Dr. Thiessen will remain with us as the keynote speaker for the Wesley Symposium on Tuesday April 21. The day begins at 10:00 with Dr. Thiessen’s lecture, “Signs of Life and Vitality in Canadian Churches: Drawing on Data to Inform Practice.” The rest of the papers are listed in the full program, available now. Registration is $30 ($20 for students).
