Calvin Williams of MY House in British Columbia, was one of the participants, of MND 2017 and offered some encouraging feedback after the days’ workshops:
“I was very impressed with the quality of teaching and interaction that was presented at the Networking Day. I was impressed at the high regard that the CRC and ministries represented had for justice work and how it is integral in God’s mission. I felt encouraged that there is a large representation of believers from a mainline church that are as passionate about God’s justice for the “least of these” as I am.
The presenters offered clear scriptural support for justice work and brought our attention to passages of the Bible that traditionally have not been associated with justice work. We were lead through really appropriating Scripture to our calling and daily work. This was affirming.
I learned a lot about Appreciative Inquiry and how it can be used to connect with our participants and address problematic issues. I used it in the week I returned back to work with great results.
During the Networking Day, I also made some connections with other ministries who are involved in areas that I want our ministry to expand into. We look forward to connecting with the other ministries further as we continue to develop.
Thank you for the opportunity to attend the Networking Day!”
Ministry Networking Day 2017 was held on May 26th, 2017. For more information about Ministry Networking Day learning opportunities visit the DMC website.
