PINAWA, Man.—New to EMC pastoral leadership and want some help?

Another New Leaders’ Orientation will be held on March 18-19, 2017, at Wilderness Edge Retreat & Conference Centre in Pinawa, Man. To make travel even more attractive, it follows right on the heels of Steinbach Bible College’s Leadership Conference.

The EMC values the contributions made by new pastors who may be unfamiliar with our history, culture, workings, and even the potential tensions that can be expected when entering a new conference.

If your church has a new salaried senior pastor, associate pastor, or youth pastor who is unfamiliar with the EMC, please plan to send that staff member to this event. If you are that new pastor, please make arrangements to attend and bring your spouse.

The schedule will include supper on Saturday night followed by a time of relaxation, getting acquainted, and sharing faith stories. On Sunday there will be four sessions:

Highlights Of Anabaptist/EMC History

How The EMC Works

Dealing With Church Culture (preparing for potential tensions)

Looking Into The Future

The event will end on Sunday at 4 p.m. Wilderness Edge, located in Pinawa, is about a 90-minute drive from SBC.

Transportation at no cost will be provided for those needing a ride from Steinbach to Pinawa and back. Also a shuttle to the Winnipeg airport can be arranged for Sunday afternoon. If transportation costs to Manitoba from other provinces is an issue, please don’t let that deter you from coming. Contact Ralph Unger, interim conference pastor, or his assistant, Erica Fehr, at 204-326-6401.
