TMI EQUIP EVENTS 2017
EQUIP Winnipeg – May 27, 2017       
EQUIP Regina – October 21, 2017

Total Member Involvement is a full-scale, world-church evangelistic thrust that involves every member, every church, every administrative entity, every type of public, personal and institutional outreach ministry. Total Member Involvement is dedicated to helping you and your church discover unique, relevant ways to reach your neighbours, friends and broader community.

“All the preaching in the world will not make men feel deeply the need of perishing souls around them. Nothing will so arouse in men and women a self-sacrificing zeal as to send them forth into new fields to work for those in darkness. Prepare workers to go out into the highways and hedges… Rally workers who possess true missionary zeal, and let them go forth to diffuse light and knowledge far and near” Testimonies for the Church, Volume 9, page 117.

Doubling the Attendance in Your Church

While it sounds easy to double the attendance of your church, why does it not happen regularly? Come and join this seminar as we explore ideas that will increase your churches attendance. Let’s openly talk about what may be hindering your church from growing. We will share ideas that are simple, inexpensive, and easy. Your church can grow! Based on our Conference vision statement #8 “Double the number of churches in our mission territory, double attendance.”

Incorporating the Other Half of the Army

Glenda Nischuk, Health Ministries

Glenda Nischuk, Health Ministries

Does your church reach out with evangelism as well as health ministries?  Doesn’t it seem hard to connect in this secular world and the outcomes often seem lacking?  Perhaps you are missing half your troops! The work of ministering to people’s spiritual needs should be joined with educating for better health.  Each is to cooperate with the other and both troops need to advance together.  Join Glenda Nischuk as she shares basic health training, including the tools for success in reaching out, and what resources are available to arm you for advancing in health ministries. Based on our Conference vision statement #4 “Area training for broad spectrum community service including health ministries.”
