This year we are once again going to be offering several gatherings called “Coffee Conversations”, which provide opportunity to get together in advance of our Annual General Meeting. This will be an evening where we review recommendations going forward to AGM, will discuss an update on the process regarding name change, along with other updates and any questions you may have.

We want all delegates, pastors, church board members, deacons, and any others in your congregation who are interested – to come, to engage in open conversation and understand the process before us. As such, I’m inviting you to join us at one of the following gatherings. We invite and anticipate your questions and input.

You are welcome to join whichever event best suits your schedule.

Beyond these regional meetings, if your church leadership would like for me to sit with you (either in person or via video connection), I would be pleased to do so. You can simply ask your pastor to schedule that with Sheryl in the BIC Canada offices (

If you have any questions, please let me know.
Thank you for helping me to get the word out about this event
