Delegates, Members, Friends,
Our annual CEM Conference is set for October 22 & 23 where we will meet on-line once again. Our first choice would have us gather together physically. However, finding a location was incredibly difficult due to the fall-out of the pandemic. So, we invite you to join the Conference from the comfort of home. All are welcome to share together as we “Courageously Respond” to the leadings of the Holy Spirit. Life on the other side of the pandemic is calling us to fearlessly move forward in mission.
What You Can Expect
The agenda will include Zoom breakout rooms where you can hear from those who have responded to missional needs in bold ways right across the country. More information will follow about these "Mission in Action" sessions. The Conference webpage at cemconference.ca will be updated soon with the complete schedule as well as links to familiarize you with the Conference experience.
Saturday Conference activities commence at 10 am with "Mission in Action" break-out groups followed by lunch and comfort breaks. The business session begins at 1 pm. On Saturday evening join a fun on-line experience for all ages starting at 7 pm. On Sunday, we partner with Beyond the Walls for a CEM worship service beginning at 12 noon. Apostle Arthur Smith will be our speaker.
We are obligated to meet annually in order to:
Registration/Pre-legislative Sessions/Tech Training
Register for the Conference by clicking the button below.
Pastors have already received their congregational packages for delegate selection from the CEM office. Delegates are required to register and have their own individual device to vote (cell phone, computer or tablet). In advance of the Conference, training sessions will take place to familiarize delegates with our voting platform, Poll Everywhere.
Pre-legislative discussions will be held prior to the Conference to review information, motions, and budgets.
NOTE: This is everyone's opportunity to ask questions, express opinions and engage in dialogue in order to streamline our business meeting. Please come prepared to participate and hear various perspectives.
Nomination of World Conference Delegates
One of the important pieces of business before us will be the election of delegates for World Conference to be held April 22-29, 2023 in Independence, Missouri. Melissa is compiling a list of those who would like to be such a delegate, in preparation for our business meeting. Please contact Melissa if you plan to attend and represent Canada East Mission as a delegate. Additional names may be nominated during the meeting. Please obtain permission from any individual you wish to nominate, prior to the business meeting.
We look forward to working together on the business of Canada East Mission as we courageously respond to the presence and promptings of the Holy Spirit.
Mary Jean Belrose
CEM Mission Centre President Team
