Seminars For Mission Trip Leaders
In working with leaders of short-term exposure travel, the Canadian Churches’ Forum for Global Ministries draws from 90 years of international ministry experience, a diversity of resources, connections with denominational mission departments, and knowledge of the historical and global context of missions.

Please join us for one of our upcoming seminars!

   For more information on the fall and other Mission Trip Leaders’ Seminars
   Please contact the Canadian Churches Forum Co-Directors.

This ecumenical seminar is for individuals contemplating trip leadership, those who already have groups preparing to go, and seasoned trip leaders.  It allows participants to reflect upon the practical and theological issues involved and to build their programs from beginning stages, to plan for all of the details of the actual mission exposure trip, and to focus on the essential aspects of post-trip.  Group is limited to maximum of 20 participants.

Also available from the Forum, “Sojourning: A Leaders Guide for Short Term Mission Travel” which provides information and reflection for each of the stages of Mission travel; Early Discernment, First steps in Organizing a trip, Pre-trip activities with participants, the trip itself, and Post-trip activities and process. Order on-line from the Canadian Churches Forum for Global Ministries.

Established in 1921 as The Canadian School of Missions and later known as The Ecumenical Institute, The Canadian Churches Forum for Global Ministries is a Christian agency through which Canadian churches work together on global ministry through programs of education, training and dialogue. The Forum counts among its members: the Anglican Church of Canada, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, the Presbyterian Church in Canada, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Toronto, Scarboro Foreign Mission Society and the United Church of Canada. We operate under the aegis of the Canadian Council of Churches and work closely with other denominational and ecumenical organizations.
