All pastors and their spouses are invited to Banff November 4-7, 2013, for the CBWC’s annual Banff Pastors and Spouses Conference. The Conference is a wonderful opportunity for pastors and their spouses to enjoy a relaxing, refreshing retreat with friends and colleagues who share God’s call to serve Him across Western Canada while enjoying God’s wondrous works. Past participants have always found the Conference to be a refreshing and restorative time for fellowship, prayer, worship and learning.
Our theme this year is Stories Jesus Told: Reading, Proclaiming and Living the Parables. We are delighted to have Gordon King as our keynote speaker. Gordon was the Director of Relief and Development for the Sharing Way at Canadian Baptist Ministries for six years. Our worship will be led by Sam Chaise, Executive Director of CBM and by Rev. Rob Des Cotes, former pastor of Fairview Baptist in Vancouver and now a spiritual director at Imago Dei.
Bible Studies will be led by Anne Smith, pastor of The Church at Southpoint in Surrey and by her husband Dr. Craig Smith, professor of Biblical studies at Carey Theological College. There will be workshops on spiritual formation, personal health and wellness, prayer walks, personal finance and continuing education.
The conference will be held at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel in Banff, AB.
