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. Sherry will build upon some of the topics discussed in “It Takes a Village: Nurturing Children in Faith For a Lifetime” but it is not a prerequisite to this session.
About the Seminar:
“Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve.” Joshua’s famous challenge to the Israelites called them to be a people set apart for worshipping Yahweh amidst the false idols and distractions in the world around them. Families today continue in this clash of cultures. As Christ followers, we are to be a people set apart in the ways and purposes of God. Does this call to holy living affect our view of children, family and parenting? Does the Biblical picture of the whole people of God really shape our understanding of discipleship and mission?
Looking to scripture as a model for authentic life as the intergenerational body of Christ, we find guidance for building our homes and churches not with a brick-and-mortar view, but with a view to Kingdom values. This seminar, through teaching, discussion and practical application will allow parents and ministry workers alike to consider a vision of holy living in our families and churches that is counter cultural, intergenerational in nature and firmly rooted in Christ.
About the Presenter:
Sherry has been involved in education and ministry to children and families for over 35 years. She has a passion to see children and families fall in love with Jesus and become engaged, together with God’s people, in the advancement of the Kingdom of God. Sherry holds a Bachelor of Education degree and a Master of Pastoral Ministry degree, which have equipped her for ministry to children and families in her school, her home church and in her role as Children and Families Ministry Coordinator (CFam) for the Canadian Baptists of Western Canada. Sherry also teaches grade 3 at Vancouver Christian School. She lives in Burnaby British Columbia with her husband and enjoys their ministry together at Southside Community Church and just ‘doing life together’ with family and friends.
It seems that everywhere we turn the world is in turmoil. One could say that has always been the case. But it seems that we are witnessing more widespread upheaval, more sinister forms of evil, a greater acceleration of the collapse of any agreed upon moral order. How then shall we preach? And how then shall we pray? Especially, how then shall we pray? By praying the prayers of the New Testament! Prayers prayed in the face of massive turmoil. Prayers that are audaciously bold, shamelessly extravagant, joyfully expressed in superlatives. Prayers that reflect a vision of God that we in our time need desperately to recover. In this seminar we will give our attention to these prayers, and consider how to preach them so that we and our people will want to pray as eagerly and confidently.Date: Wednesday, May 27 Time: 9:00-3:00 Location: Carey Centre, UBC Cost: $59/person includes lunch Presenter: Rev. Darrell Johnson “Preaching the Prayers of the New Testament” REGISTER
Date: Saturday, June 13 Time: 9:00-3:00 Location: First Baptist Church, Lethbridge Cost: $10/person REGISTER Presenter: Peter Anderson
Have you ever thought, “I wish I could understand what is going through teenagers’ minds, because they sure don’t make sense to me”? If this is you, don’t be alarmed. Recent research has shown that the human brain is not fully developed until the age of 25. This means that it is only natural that teenagers will think and act differently than you do (or more likely act without thinking). Therefore, the key to understanding teens is not in forcing them to think like adults, but rather learning how they think and then loving them by entering their world.
This seminar is for parents, teachers, pastors, youth leaders; anyone who loves and interacts with teens on a regular basis. Our hope is that you will be equipped to better understand teens in order to healthily walk alongside them as they become committed disciples of Jesus.
About Peter Anderson:
Peter grew up in a home that was “invaded” every Wednesday night by 50 or more teenagers and was able to watch his parents share God’s love with students in an amazingly gracious and consistent way. In high school Peter soon discovered that he too was passionate about ministering to his teenage peers and he began serving as a student leader in his church youth group.
Upon graduation, Peter attended Olivet Nazarene University and pursued a BA in Youth Ministry. During this time, God confirmed his call to youth ministry while giving him the opportunity of serving with Youth for Christ.
In the fall of 2005, Peter moved to Vancouver to pursue a Masters of Divinity degree at Regent College. He soon was volunteering with the youth at West Point Grey Baptist Church and has now served on staff as their youth and young adult pastor for nearly 8 years.
Peter has developed a holistic approach to Youth Ministry called Kurios (www.kurios.ca) and its mission statement summarizes well his heart for the youth of Vancouver:
“Our hope at Kurios is that students will come to know the God who loves them and what he has done for them in Jesus Christ, that they will grow as disciples of Jesus Christ daily, that they will show others what it means to be a Christian, and that their lives will flow with the deep, deep joy of Christ; all as the Holy Spirit works in their lives.”
The President, the Board of Administration and the Senate of Carey invite you to celebrate the 2015 Graduation of Carey Theological College and the Carey Institute. The ceremony is to be held Sunday June 28th at 3 PM in the beautiful First Baptist Church in downtown Vancouver.
We will be presenting our honorary doctorate to Dr. Darrell Johnson for his contributions toward excellence in service of the church and teaching and preaching for the whole people of God.
Darrell is known for his passion to be in the word, in community, and in service of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Darrell has been involved with the Carey Institute since 2011, leading preaching seminars and mentoring many of our pastors, while training the next generation of leaders in Christocentric faith.
Following the ceremony, there will be a light reception at First Baptist Church, Vancouver.
You are also invited to our Doctor of Ministry Presentations at Carey Centre on Friday, June 26 at 4 PM and Saturday, June 27 beginning at 1 PM
Here are the list of our candidates and their research projects:
Come and explore how God’s creative purposes unfold in Genesis, culminating with his magnum opus: us! This course will use the arts to explore aspects of the salvation story such as creation, calling, Christ’s coming, and Christian community – putting paintings, poetry and sculpture in dialogue with biblical texts in order that we engage with God’s story afresh. Teaching will be interspersed with creative tasks and you are encouraged to pursue particular interests you have – and there is no competition!
Using a mixture of word and image, we will reflect on what it means for us to be ‘God’s masterpiece’. We will then consider how, through Jesus Christ, we are freed to ‘do the good things he planned for us long ago’ (Ephesians 2:10), and how this can play out in terms of our own creativity.
There will be opportunities to make visual art throughout the course, and no previous experience is necessary. Basic materials will be provided but you are welcome to bring your own sketch/note books/ favourite art materials. REQUIRED SUPPLY LIST
