WE AIM TO ENCOURAGE AND ESTABLISH HEALTHY CHURCHES IN ATLANTIC CANADA
Founded in 2022, the Engage conference is an annual conference filled with preaching, teaching, fellowship and singing.
WHY WE GATHER
While we have our differences, we are committed to standing together for the main thing— the gospel of Jesus Christ. We also recognize that Atlantic Canada needs more, healthy churches.
How that looks will vary from place to place, but, generally speaking, a healthy church will do four things. A healthy church will plant healthy churches, it will engage in discipleship, it will honor women and minister to them and it will worship well.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Deepen your biblical knowledge through talks, panels and breakout sessions through God's word
Be refreshed as you sing old and new hymns with brothers and sisters in Christ.
Build stronger relationships with members of your own church, reconnect with old friends, and make new ones.
