An opportunity to Come Together with Indigenous and non-Indigenous believers. Hearing from those who have journeyed before us, offering their perspective on walking the Jesus Way while being both Indigenous and Christian. For Indigenous and non-Indigenous people who serve and minister to Indigenous peoples.
The Message: Reconciling the past and journeying towards Contexualized Ministry.
Objective: Learning to understand the Jesus Way in the context of Indigenous culture.
To have 200 Indigenous and non-Indigenous participants come together and engage in the process of learning and listening to the perspectives of Christian leaders about how a person can be both Indigenous and a Christian in a way that honours Scripture. Indigenous leaders from different nations speaking their truth and their personal testimonies, sharing so that participants can feel safe to ask questions to seek understanding and clarity in a respectful environment. Each participant will understand how we all are responsible in addressing the 94 Calls of Action and for the non-Indigenous participants to learn what it means to be an ally and how they can advocate for the rights of Indigenous peoples.
