Convention 2014

OCMBC Convention 2014

The Ontario MB Convention took place February 21-22, 2014 at New Hope Church Niagara in St. Catharines, Ontario. The theme of the Pastor and Leader Retreat this year was “Living on Mission.”

Friday night the Convention was launched by dedicating New Hope Church Niagara’s new facility to the Lord. Check out the Convention – dedication (Mandy Kasper). It turns out that New Hope folks are fantastic hosts. The food and amenities were amazing. Later that evening Randy Friesen challenged us from John 6 asking the pointed question: ‘Are you all in?’. During a call of commitment and prayer many came forward. As we prepared for communion Shawn Reimer and the band offered a moving artistic rendition of the Cross. Utilizing a beautiful poem written by David Bowden this experience invited us into the presence of God. This rich evening set the stage for Saturday’s AGM. It was peppered with business items, but mostly we focused on the themes of “collaboration, accountability & blessing.”
