Welcome to CCMBC’s mission conference!”
So began Gathering 2014 at The Centre in Vancouver, with a welcome from executive director Willy Reimer. “We are a mission agency, and our mission field is all of Canada.”
June 11–14, some 250 delegates, guests and staff gathered in the heart of one of Canada’s largest metropolitan centres with an invitation to “be the church on mission in the heart of the city.”
Reimer said he was excited to be in Vancouver for CCMBC’s biennial convention, noting the Canadian church is primarily suburban even though the city is ripe for harvest.
“Christians have lost the battle for the city because they have moved out of the city. To love the city, you have to be in the city.”
