This one day seminar is for all volunteers, parents, and paid staff who are involved with children and family ministries in their local church. Carey Institute and the CBWC Children and Family Missional Network invite you to join them for an important day of resourcing, encouragement, and networking.
Research indicates that close to 50% of Christian kids walk away from their churches and their faith when they leave high school. As parents and partners (faith community) we can help children discover and grow a deep and meaningful faith that will last a lifetime. Deuteronomy 6 implores us to love God fully, to remember His commands, and to impress them upon our children as we walk through life together so that they will put their trust in God.
In this seminar we will consider the ancient words of the Shema and discover effective ways to nurture faith for a lifetime in our kids as we parent and partner together. Our goal is not simply morality for our kids, but rather holiness; seeing our children become faithful followers of Christ who reflect his character and have an impact for the Kingdom throughout their lives.

ABOUT THE SEMINAR:
Canadians approaching retirement are now the fastest growing demographic in the country. The sharp increase can be attributed to the aging “baby boom” generation, who account for almost one-third of the nation’s population. This emerging trend will have significant ministry consequences for many years for churches and the communities they serve. There will need to be an intentional approach to preparation and provision of ministries in order to respond to the possibilities of mission and service with both those in the church and others in the community needing care and compassion.
This seminar will review the emerging trends, the challenges of aging and the Christian framework for understanding the retirement time of life as part of our spiritual journey. The content and discussion will cover material and resources designed to help maturing adults (50+), either approaching or already in retirement to discover peace and purpose for this season of life through personal growth and ministry development. The legacy of faith, support of others and the presence and power of the Spirit has the potential to transform an ordinary retirement into an exceptional journey of discovery!
The day will be planned for: (i) those preparing for eventual retirement; (ii) those already moving into or in retirement; (iii) spouses and family of future and current retirees; (iv) church personnel; (v) helping professionals. Through videos, lectures and dialogue there will be opportunities to be resourced for both personal and group ministries within your family, local church and community. The topics will focus on gaining an appreciation of the differences between the Old Retirement vs. New Retirement approach to aging. (Fragmentation vs. Wholeness; Purposelessness vs. Purposefulness; Fixation vs. Creative Change; Idle Busyness vs. Life Enrichment; Dependency vs. Independence; Self absorption vs. Healthy Self-esteem; Attitude of Criticism vs. Attitude of Mentorship; Alienation vs. Involvement).

Psalms for All Ages: A Resource for Intergenerational WorshipSessions: November 16, February 22, May 3
Psalms for All Ages is a series of seminars to equip pastors, worship leaders and key lay people in planning and leading worship services that minister to congregation members of all ages. Join us for one seminar or more!
This 3-part series will generate a much-needed opportunity to discuss, examine, and learn about inter-generational worship, for the benefit of local churches from a variety of denominations and ethic backgrounds. Through the study of different types of Psalms, we hope to expand the congregation’s repertoire in corporate worship.
SATURDAY, May 3 2014 (Part 3 of a 3-part series)
Psalms of Lament – Creative worship as a mission into the pain and brokenness in our world. After a time of reflecting on the brokenness in our own life we will come together to create a mixed-media art piece. This worship experience is designed as an example of how God is creating redeeming beauty out of our broken world. It can be used as a reflection or precursor to active engagement in social justice issues. More examples of participatory arts in worship will be given as suggestions to take away.Workshop C Printmaking on a Budget ~ with Yiu Lun Tsang
In this particular session, we will create artwork that explore various Christian symbolism and the whole range of human emotion as convey in the Psalms. Specifically, this workshop explores the Glue-Line Relief technique of printmaking to create the artwork. This budget-friendly technique allows children and adult to create beautiful art work together.
About the Presenters:
Dr. Julie Slous is currently serving as Registrar with teaching responsibilities at Carey Theological College. Previously she has served for 25 years with The Salvation Army where she had extensive involvement in pastoral ministry and academic leadership. Holding a Doctorate degree in Ministry, she joins the Carey faculty with specialization in the areas of preaching, spiritual formation and social justice. Having taught extensively in these areas, Julie also seeks to apply textbook theory into practical places of ministry. Currently, she is actively involved in ministry to the residents of Vancouver’s downtown Eastside and takes as her first purpose to care for the poor, feed the hungry, clothe the naked, love the unlovable and befriend those who have no friends. Her book Preaching a Disturbing Gospel, (2012) has experienced significant circulation and challenges readers to think about how the message of the Gospel will be heard in places that have become complacent and cold to the good news of Jesus Christ. Julie is driven by the conviction that it is time to “turn up the temperature” in today’s pulpit and to assist preachers in discovering what can be done to rekindle holy fire and zeal in their preaching. Ultimately it’s about the Living Word making a difference in people’s lives and to this end, Julie finds meaning and purpose in her work. She is a proud Mom of three great kids who embrace

Managing the Nonprofit World: Purpose & PracticeA 1 day Conference with JEREMY BELL Date: Tuesday May 13, 2014 Time: 9:00-5:00 Cost: $99/person (includes catered breaks and lunch on-site) Location: Carey Centre Presenter: Jeremy Bell REGISTER
About the Presenter:
Jeremy Bell is the Executive Minister of the Canadian Baptists of Western Canada. He has an MA from Royal Roads University in Organizational Leadership, specializing in how not-for-profits develop assessment tools. Jeremy did his thesis in cooperation with the YMCA.
Jeremy has co-founded three ongoing not-for-profits in Vancouver:
He has volunteered in leadership with many organizations:
Objective of the conference: You will explore the uniqueness of not-for-profits, including their specific and unique ways of governance, identifying and satisfying stakeholder needs, focusing on purpose and assessment of their work.
This non-profit management one day conference will review the unique mission, purpose and vision of the not for profit sector and its relationship to contemporary Canadian social structures. It will examine aspects of governance, the measurement of outcomes, metrics that make sense, defining and engaging multiple stakeholders, and encouraging attendees to apply this knowledge to their own individual contexts.
In an age of economic and fiscal restraint, every level of government is seeking to restrain public expenditure on what has been considered over the last 70 years as appropriate entitlement. As the relationship between governance, not for profits, public philanthropy, and personal altruism change, it is important that not for profits anticipate and frame that new narrative so that they can continue to serve their existing and future clients.
This non-profit management conference is for directors, board members, pastors, financial officers, and others who are leaders in a non-profit organization. Both dialogue and praxis, based upon discussion with both thinkers and practitioners, and grounded in the realities of the participant’s own context will shape the time together.
Topic: Preaching, Teaching & Healing
The writers of the four gospels (especially Matthew and Luke) regularly summarize Jesus’ earthly ministry around the verbs preaching, teaching, and healing. Jesus came preaching – the kingdom of God has come near! Jesus came teaching – the kingdom of God is like. Jesus came healing – because the kingdom whose nearness He announces and whose dynamics He explains, is a kingdom of wholeness.
In this seminar, we will grapple with the main gospel texts that present Jesus as healer, as the One Who puts us back together again. We will wrestle with the hard questions the affirmation that Jesus heals raises in our lives, in our ministries, in this world. We will think together about the ministry of preaching and teaching as a ministry of healing. And we will pray together, for one another, for those we love and serve, and for our city in need of the healing only Jesus brings.
In the long history of Christianity various forms of intentional community have existed alongside of the parish church. This course explores the theology and praxis of such communities, including Monasticism, Anabaptist and Moravian communities, contemporary communities amongst Roman Catholics and Protestants and the New Monasticism.
This is a combined course for both doctoral and masters students. The instructor is Dr. Charles Ringma. Doctoral students attend June 16-20, 2014 and the course is DMPM942. Masters students attend June 16-19, 2014 and the course is APPL567.
