CML Public Lecture 

Centre for Missional Leadership at St. Andrew's Hall PresentsIn most Western nations, including Canada, the church has become small. The number of active Christians has dropped under 15% in most countries. In many locations, it is even less than that. What does this mean for a missionary religion like Christianity? How is it possible to be ‘missional’ in a context where very few people are interested in ‘God’ issues?Join us in person at Kerrisdale Presbyterian Church on Friday, May 3rd 7 pm or join us online for this public lecture with Dr. Stefan Paas where he will explore the missional identity and spirituality for Christian minorities in post-Christian contexts. Register Here - you can also just show up in person!
