Join us for a day of learning, dialogue and sharing of insights and resources through lectures and workshops on Reframing Retirement. Our goal for this conference is to gain: PERSPECTIVE Seeing the middle and later years of life as a process of maturing that provides new opportunities for discovering how to live more fully. HOPE Recognizing that faith enables us to see an ultimate future that builds on the past and informs our desire for living meaningfully in the present. GUIDANCE Listening to discover a refined sense of life purpose and renewed vocation and an awareness of the importance of self care and service for and alongside others in community. SPIRITUAL GROWTH Appreciating that the process of aging is part of our spiritual journey in which we can change and be more thoughtful and intentional in our maturing — to become whole persons, growing in our connections with God, with others, and with all of Creation.

Preaching the Second Coming of Jesus Date: Wednesday, November 16, 2016Time: 9:00am-3:00pmLocation: Carey Centre, 5290 Iona Drive, Vancouver BC, V6T 1J6 (See Google Map)Cost: $69/person includes lunchPresenter: Darrell Johnson REGISTER About this workshop: When we read the New Testament we are taken by how often the writers speak of the second coming of Jesus. Again and again, disciples look out at the future and see the “soon and very soon” appearing of the world’s only Saviour and one true Lord … and their hearts are filled with hope! Why were they so alive in this expectation? How did they know that He is coming? How did such confidence shape the way they lived their lives as they waited? In this workshop we will grapple with these and other questions, making our way through texts like Matthew 24-24 and 2 Peter 3 and Paul’s pastoral ambition to present disciples “blameless on the Day of Christ Jesus.” As a result, we too will find fresh passion to announce the good news of His glorious advent! About Dr. Darrell Johnson: Recently, Darrell Johnson served as Senior Minister of First Baptist Church, Vancouver. A popular conference and retreat speaker, he has also served as the preaching pastor for a number of Presbyterian congregations in the United States as well as Union Church of Manila, Philippines. In November 2015, Carey was thrilled to welcome Darrell and his wife, Sharon to the Carey family! Read more about Darrell’s role directing Carey’s Centre for Preaching.
Storytelling and Digital Media for Newbies Date: Saturday, November 19, 2016 Time: 9 AM – 3 PM Location: Carey Centre at UBC Cost: $59/person includes lunch Presenter: Kenton MacDonald-Lin REGISTER HERE About this workshop: You will get some great tips on: Social Media, Invitation and Email Platforms Basic Website Architecture and How to Get Going Graphics and Video Storytelling Tips Why “storytelling” is one of today’s best gift THE “PITCH” (Write Up) The internet and mobile devices are what we are using to gather and connect people. For better or worse, ‘screen time’ is part of today’s culture. How ought our response be towards the inundation of technology and the “apps” that are hitting the marketplace and educational systems? One perspective could be seeing these tools as gifts—gifts that can redeemed for things of God. The invention of tools for communication have always been part of our human history. Whether it is a style of writing or an art medium, people have used these tools to tell even God stories. (Remember the PRINTING PRESS?) Storytelling throughout history has moved people and caused transformation. Jesus himself lived it. Join us for practical advice and introductory training using the tools of today so you can better engage each other, gather, and serve as a church, ministry, or even a small business. Our hope is you will be better equipped to share what is most dear and important to you and your community with the platforms gifting us today.

All other offers are not eligible. Presenter: Darrell Johnson REGISTER About the Workshop Series: The Epistle to the Romans is without doubt the most influential letter the Apostle Paul ever wrote. Can you imagine where we who seek to follow Jesus Christ would be without it? In nearly every era of Church history, when faith was waning, when cultures were sliding further into chaos, someone re-discovered Romans, began to preach it, and the church and world was ‘rocked.’ In this series of workshops, we will grapple with how to read and preach Romans in our time. We will look at the history of preaching Romans and why we need to preach it. We will discuss the challenge of preaching Romans and possible approaches to preaching it. We will also listen to a number of recordings by contemporary preachers taking on the monumental task. Come ready to be stretched, renewed, empowered. This series of workshops is offered in conjunction with the Doctor of Ministry and Advanced Diploma in Preaching course on Romans. The first session will be a full day of instruction from Darrell while sessions two through seven will feature teaching in the morning and student presentations in the afternoon, followed by feedback from the instructor and classmates. Participants are invited to join with the students of Carey Theological College in learning to preach this incredible book in Scripture.

Jesus Has a Word for Your Church: Preaching Revelation 1-3 Date: Wednesday, November 30, 2016Time: 9:00am-3:00pmLocation: Westview Baptist Church – 1313 Ranchlands Way NW, Calgary, AB (See Google Map)Cost: $49/person includes lunchPresenter: Darrell Johnson REGISTER About this workshop: In the first three chapters of The Revelation of Jesus Christ, the risen and living Lord of the universe ‘breaks through from hiddenness’ (that is what the word ‘apocalypse’ means), and speaks to seven congregations on the land mass we now call Turkey. In each of His messages, He tells us Who He is, what He knows about us, what He is calling us to do, and what He promises those who obey Him. In this seminar, we will give careful attention to what He said then so that we might hear what He is saying now. By the end of the time together, each of us will have a greater ability to discern what Jesus is saying to the church in our time, and in particular, to each of the churches He calls us to serve.
