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."
Having established church planting as a priority of the ABA, and in an effort to sharpen the focus on church planting, the Fall 2016 ReNew event will seek to address this issue with the leaders of ABA churches. As we meet in the five regions of the association we will engage in a conversation as to how every ABA church might participate in church planting in a real and meaningful way.
With a video address from Norm Poehlke, NAB International Office, and Johnny Thiessen, C2C, we will hear of renewed conference level focus on church planting and of what resources are available to us.
In this conversation, you will help us clarify how to effectively engage church planting in Alberta and you will be asked to consider the role of your local church in this effort.
You are invited. Bring your board; bring interested church members; bring your pastor. This will prove to be a watershed moment in the mission and ministry of your association.

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.
Date: Thursday, December 8, 2016 @ Hillview Baptist Church, Edmonton
Event will being with coffee and refreshments at 9:00am and will conclude at 11:30am.
An invitation will be sent out.
