The Spiritual Health and Theology priority area will help us achieve our mission and vision goals by cultivating and articulating a disciple-making theological centre grounded in our biblical convictions and expressed in our Confession of Faith. This will encourage pastors and churches to maintain an evangelical-Anabaptist spirituality, producing new disciples of Jesus. Although success in this strategic area will require contribution from all, the National Faith and Life team, in coordination with Provincial Faith and Life teams, Conference Ministers, Multiply and MB Seminary, will lead this priority area.
