LEAD | Made In the Image of God: Engaging Prejudice, Power, and Privilege @ Eden Mennonite Church
Feb 23 @ 8:30 am – 4:30 pm

This year’s LEAD Conference focuses on being “Made In the Image of God: Engaging Prejudice, Power, and Privilege.”

This year’s LEAD theme is “Made in the Image of God: Engaging Prejudice, Power and Privilege.” It will take place at Eden Mennonite Church (46551 Chilliwack Central Rd, Chilliwack, BC). Facilitators at this conference are Betty Pries, Chris Lenshyn (Associate Pastor at EMC), and Joon Park (EMC).

Made in the Image of God is a full-day workshop designed to support congregational leaders, both as they lead their congregations and as they engage in missional activity. As people of faith, we are committed to honouring the words of Genesis – that all are made in the image of God. Recognizing that our social structures and personal biases can get in the way of this commitment, this interactive workshop will engage themes of prejudice, power and privilege in a manner that honours all voices in the room while also challenging the biases and structures that privilege some over others and that damage the possibility of healthy yet diverse relationships and communities.

Sign-in begins at 8:30 am, the conference start time is 9am, and will conclude at 4pm.
Please RSVP to admin@mcbc.ca.
