“One of the great privileges I have in this work is that I get to travel the country and visit our churches from coast to coast and then on into our international community. And one of the things that strikes me so profoundly is the communities where churches are working together in mission, both within Mennonite Brethren and with the broader community.”

“The reason that we exist as a conference – our mission statement that we processed at Gathering 2014 – is that ‘we exist to multiply Christ-centred churches to see Canada transformed by the good news of Jesus Christ.’ ”

Willy’s May video focuses on the Transformation Survey, which we encourage all Canadian MB church leaders to participate in this spring!

“At the beginning of March, many leaders from across Canada (over 800) gathered in Vancouver for the Multiply conference put on by C2C. That conference – which was to be about helping existing churches multiply, raising up church planters amongst the young leaders who attended – really became a conference about understanding the heart of God and how suffering is tied to what God has called us to do.”

“As we prepare to celebrate Easter this month, I pause to think about the story of unleavened bread.

In Exodus 12, we have that described to us. In verse 17, it says, “Celebrate this Festival of Unleavened Bread, for it will remind you that I brought your forces out of the land of Egypt on this very day” (NLT).”

As we enter into 2016, I think we’re all aware of the kind of world that we live in and the challenges that we face. We hear the stories from around the world of different acts of terrorism, and even here at home, we have events like the recent shooting up in La Loche, northern Saskatchewan. Events that break our hearts, events that remind us of the need for the gospel to be preached and lived out across this country.

 Week of Prayer – January 24-30, 2016

“Well I want to greet you, first of all, with a Happy New Year, as we enter 2016! As a Canadian Conference of Churches, we have held an initiative the last few years to hold a week of prayer in the first month of the year to sort of set our hearts in the right direction, to participate together as churches, to come before the Lord to ask him to in intervene in our lives and in our culture and in our country, for the sake of the gospel and to see people come to Christ.”
