Toronto Roundtable Oct 23-25
In just one month from now, ministry practitioners from throughout the United States and Canada will gather at The People’s Church in Toronto to worship, network, and find mutual encouragement and strength to carry on in this often lonely, yet rewarding commission to welcome, love and work together with refugees and the forcibly displaced who come to our hometowns.
It isn’t too late to sign up! You won’t want to miss our plenary speakers and workshops.
