Nova Experience…

Nova Experience

The WCA is launching a new 3-day event in Canada called the Nova Experience.

The NOVA Experience – a brand new day!
April 10-12, 2008 – Doubletree International Plaza Hotel, Toronto, ON

A new dawn is here for the local church in Canada, bringing the promise of a brighter morning, full of hope, full of mercy, and full of grace.

It’s a brand new day.

The Leadership Centre Willow Creek Canada, your nation-wide ministry that supports the local church through leadership development and spiritual climate change, is pleased to offer a new, comprehensive experience for the entire church – designed to envision, equip, and encourage every leader and volunteer on your team.

With five distinct experiences, plus an implementation plan that starts before you arrive and carries on after you leave, the complete NOVA Experience helps churches define, refine, and implement their unique, holistic direction for intentional Kingdom impact.

Can Willow conferencing-machine really producing something new and different for us Canadians?

Speakers include Erwin McManus, Joseph Meyers, Craig Gross, Leonard Sweet, Mark Buchanan, and Mark Batterson.

No offense to these guys but aren’t there folks that work in a Canadian context that we can learn from as well?

    Hey Lon!

    I’m actually doing some investigative studies into Christianity with an atheist friend. Questions such as: existence of God, pain & suffering etc. Was wondering if you knew of any good resources?

    I know that you and your wife were involved w/ a seeker type small group for a while; I was just wondering how you guys went about it and what you guys studied.

    If you could give me any suggestions, that’d be really appreciated!

    Hey Joeie, that’s awesome. resources.. hrm… there’s the lee strobel case for christ/faith series.

    erwin mcmanus’ book soul cravings, might be a good starter, though it just helps a person begin the search

    my wife and i did a seeker type group… but well it wasn’t really your typical one, and we didn’t really study anything. yvz and i were the only christians, amongst a fairly eclectic group and we took turns leading… just about any conversation on life,god, purpose, spirituality.

    hope that helps, let me know if you need more

    Darn, I thought that Buchanan worked in a CDN context. Is he American now?

    I stand corrected Dave… looks like he’s based out of BC on his profile!
