Mission &
Leadership Summit 2022


Many of our leaders and members have experienced or are at risk of experiencing burnout in these challenging times. Join this session to learn from Dr. Angeline David Brauer (NAD Health Ministries director) how to build the resilience needed to withstand the many pressures of leadership.

According to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, by 2036, immigrants will represent 30% of Canada’s population, up from 20.7% in 2011. Hear from Mount Zion Filipino member Maria Fe Aguinaldo, who has a wealth of experience in immigration and refugee ministry, on how to enter this largely untapped mission field.

Join this exciting workshop to hear from Dr. Lloyd Douglas, an Adventist physician consultant based in Sioux Lookout who is passionate about Indigenous health and well-being. He will share what he’s learned about the needs of the Indigenous population and how we can reach them with our distinctive, Christ-centred, Seventh-day Adventist message of hope and healing.

Pastor Esther Knott (associate director, NAD Ministerial) was a lead developer of a seminar titled “Contagious Adventist: Recognizing and Creating Faith Sharing Moments.” Here, she will give practical tips on becoming a “Contagious Adventist” in light of the great commission in our daily lives.

Pastors Orlando Pule (Ontario Conference Family Ministries director) and Frankie Lazarus (pastor, Mount Olive Church) are strong advocates for social justice. Their workshop will define biblical justice as an outgrowth of God’s character. It will also share how justice was administered throughout scripture and demonstrated in the life of Jesus. Finally, this seminar will explore the social consciousness and advocacy of early Adventism, and how churches can engage in current social justice issues.
