Unity in Mission Recap A short recap, notes, and recordings

On January 29 & 30 over 65 leaders from the 4 A's gathered to discuss how we might experience unity in Christ's mission. Over the course of our time together it became evident that God was knitting our hearts together. The content was good, but in the end it's nothing without the work of the Spirit in us and in our spheres of influence.

John Pellowe began our time together with a background of the relationship between church and agency. Anthony Brown gave a wonderful reflection on Philippians 2:5. Then Glenn Smith gave a great overview of some of our socio/cultural challenges and opportunities.

We were blessed with excellent insights from our panelists and those who shared their experiences for our case studies. Thank you.

On the Thursday we heard a bit about Our Common Calling. Could I encourage each of you to visit the link and nominate yourselves for the event which runs on October 26-28 in Toronto: https://www.ourcommoncalling.ca/nominations

We hope to have the recordings of the sessions up on this page shortly. Please visit again.

Profile photo for John Hall

John Hall became the Executive Director at Mission Central (formerly Missions Fest Vancouver) in 2014. In 1997 he, his wife and brother in-law started Eco Outdoor Sports in Metro Vancouver. In 2003 the business was sold, and his family entered a seven-year ‘desert experience’. During that time the Lord impressed on John and his family the importance of hearing and obeying Jesus every day, something that he tries to integrate into everything he does. In 2010 God changed the family’s direction and led him to finish his degree at Regent College in preparation for life as a full-time missionary overseas. Although that ministry opportunity didn’t develop as planned a whole new perspective and participation-in Christ’s mission was born at Missions Fest Vancouver. It’s now a daily occurrence for John’s business background and theological training get a workout.

John and his wife Wei live in Richmond, BC. They have two wonderful adult girls. John completed his MA at Regent College in 2010.
