2019 Roundtable - Toronto, Canada
The Peoples Church
It is with great excitement that we announce the 2019 Refugee Highway Partnership North America Roundtable in Toronto, Canada. This year's theme is "place" looking into thoughts from Exodus 33:21:
“Then the LORD said, "There is a place near me where you may stand on a rock.”
We hope that you will join us on October 23 – 25, 2019. The Roundtable will be held at The Peoples Church.
Why do we call it a Roundtable?
The Refugee Highway is the journey that displaced people make, forced to leave home and hoping to find a new home. The Refugee Highway Partnership is a network of Christians, churches and organizations who have found common cause in the call of Jesus to “welcome the stranger” and extend hospitality to those in need. The Roundtable is where we gather -- the table is Round because we’re in this together and need one another’s voices. It’s a place of inspiration, learning, sharing, and equipping. It is a space where diverse ministries, services, and individuals find one another in order to bring about action that would please the heart of Jesus, as He sees us welcoming the stranger in our midst and showing the mercy that He first offered us.
We are also offering a pre-roundtable Professional Development training on Trauma Counseling. This requires a separate registration.
It is important to us that the roundtable is accessible for everyone who is interested and committed to full participation.
