EMMC conference to include distant churches in new ways

The Evangelical Mennonite Mission Conference’s biennial conference, The Gathering, will take place both in person and online for the first time June 4-6. Since the event will not be restricted by travel, venue size or cost, it will be the first conference equally accessible to all members: “For the first time ever, the EMMC Gathering can be the Gathering of the [entire] EMMC.”

Most of EMMC’s congregations are in Canada, but a handful are in ­Belize and Mexico. Worship and main session speakers will share in live video sessions, along with workshops and video chats with missionaries around the world.

“Rooted: Rising to His Call” will feature main session speakers Jesse Doell, pastor of Hepburn Gospel Church in Saskatchewan, and Henry Redekopp, pastor of Mennonite Gospel Church in Vauxhall, Alberta.

Sessions will also be available for young adults, youth and children.

In addition to events taking place in person at Sutherland Evangelical Church in Saskatoon, Sask., online-only registration is $10 at emmc.ca/the-gathering-2021.
