Intercultural Ministries Conference Update

We had an amazing group of people attended our Intercultural Ministries Conference on October 13. More than thirteen churches were represented, and almost 50 people in attendance. With topics from cross-cultural strategies, to teaching ESL from a language learning perspective, using integrated Bible Study curriculum, to how to present the Gospel to newcomers, and an amazing story from an immigrant father on the stress and anxiety of integrating into a new culture—all had something to offer us as we learn to reach out to the newcomers in our neighbourhoods, churches, and workplaces.

A few conference highlights from attendees:

“Very well done. Excellent presenters and topics.”

“Speakers were easy to understand and follow.”

“Really liked the session by Amber Wylie-Moerman.”

“The entire day was inspiring, energizing and encouraging.”

“This was a conference that I found thoroughly inspiring at all levels. Bud Fuchs was a very engaging speaker and the topics covered provided many practical ideas and much spiritual encouragement to me in my role of reaching out to newcomers.”

“An aha moment for me was when Amber presented the bible-based materials to use for teaching English to newcomers. It made perfect sense that the Bible should be used unapologetically as text for a language learner program. It was very helpful to have the various elements for effective language teaching so clearly outlined and resourced.”
