It’s back! Ontario Conference’s Adventist Ministries Convention (AMC) will be held February 3-4, 2017 at the Sheraton Parkway Hotel, Richmond Hill.
This news will be welcomed by the 900 local church ministries’ leaders who attended the first of the biennial event in January 2015. Speaking of AMC 2015, Julia Clarke said, “...It was incredible!” Audrey Mitchell added, “The convention surpassed my expectations in every way!” Others described it using similar expressions. They will most probably be among the first to register for Ministries Convention 2017 when registration opens on Monday, September 12, 2016.
Organisers said that AMC 2017 will not be a repetition of 2015. While it will still feature inspirational worship services and over twenty different workshops, there are new speakers for 2017.
The theme, ‘Optimum—Spiritual Leadership in a Changing Culture’ is part of the Ontario Conference’s REACH strategy to achieve its goal to develop Health Leadership and Effective Management amongst its local church leadership. The entire convention will focus the attention of participants to recognise how culture is changing—both in their communities and in their churches--and the spiritual leadership qualities needed by ministries’ leaders to effectively minister to them.
Cost will again be the minimum possible to ensure that many will be able to attend. Registration will include Sabbath lunch. However, once registration opens on September 12, anyone planning to attend will need to act immediately because space will be limited to accommodate all the workshops. Registration will cease at the end of November. Only those who have registered will be able to attend. There will not be any last minute registrations or walk-ins.
Registration opens September 12, 2016.
