Mission: The ABA exists to connect and enable churches to impact communities for the growth and advancement of the kingdom of God in Alberta and the world."
ReNew events are held twice each year in five regions of Alberta: North, Edmonton, Central, Calgary and South. Church leaders are brought together so they might be challenged, encouraged and equipped to effectively serve and impact the communities in which they are located.
For the next ReNew, the topic of conversation will be:
What Every Church Needs to Know about Pastors.
During the evening, as we explain where this topic came from and why it is important, the intended goal will be to strengthen the relationships between pastors and churches, between pastors and church leaders. We believe that healthy, positive relationships in this regard will serve to increase the strength of the church and promote a work of the Kingdom.
Please keep in mind that, while future ReNew events will be for both pastors and lay leaders, this time we have asked the pastors not to attend. This is for you, church leaders.
Our hope is that every board member from every church, along with any other church leader you invite, will join us for this evening. As we share together we pray that our Lord will ReNew our commitment to healthy church ministry by way of healthy pastor-church relationships.

Retired/Semi-Retired Ministry Workers Gathering
In an effort to honour those who have served with faithfulness and distinction in the past, and to keep them connected with the mission and ministry of the ABA, this gathering is a morning of refreshment, sharing and prayer. At times there are topics or issues to discuss while at other times the time is more relaxed. The most important thing we do is express gratitude for the role models these servants have been for those who have followed in their footsteps.
