Friday 2:30 -  Equipping Session 1

When Counselling Fails - Aristide and Cadeau Nyounai


Aristide has been serving as pastor at Providence Christian Church for eight years. He is also a Pension Expert at the Government of Canada Pension Centre, currently on leave to complete an MDiv in Leadership from Liberty University. When Cadeau is not teaching their children at home, she enjoys reading and writing. They both have a passion for discipeship and biblical counselling through which they are continually being equipped and are equipping the saints.

In this session, we'll work together to identify the hurdles and pitfalls of counselling in the local church and understanding and rectifying counselling failures.

Growing On Purpose - Kathy Howard


Kathy Howard helps women live an unshakeable faith for life no matter the circumstances. A former "cultural Christian," Kathy encourages them to stand firm on our rock-solid God through trials and persecution or ease - embracing real, authentic faith.

Disciple Making for Movement - Andrew Lamme 


We all discuss the Great Commission and how Jesus himself instructed to first make disciples. The North American Mission Board has recently introduced the Pipeline which is a three year online program that you as a leader can utilize for developing leaders within your own church. A presentation of this and how you as a church can utilize it will be demonstrated in this session.

Andrew got involved with Church Planting back in 2002 when he met Jeff Christopherson as Jeff was planting The Sanctuary Church. Church Planting was not even on his 'radar' before he joined The Sanctuary but God had something else in store for him and his family. Andrew is grateful for the opportunity to serve in his role with NAMB and CNBC for the past number of years. 


Friday 3:45 -  Equipping Session 2

Intentional Evangelism at a Block Party - Cesar Parra


When having an event to reach the community with the gospel, we need to be ready as a church in how we will serve the people with a purpose driven evangelistic vision. This session will help your church prepare you to be intentional with declaring the gospel at the event and post event.

Cesar is the Team Leader for Missions, Ethnic Churches, and Evangelism at the CNBC. He loves sharing his passion for evangelism and equiping others to lead an evangelistic lifestyle.

Networking: More Than a Meeting - Dwight Huffman 

Dwight Huffman is the CNBC's National Team Leader for Regional Ministries and the Regional Ministry Leader for the Alberta South region. Dwight has been living and serving in Alberta since he and immigrated to Canada from the United States in May of 2000. He has been a church planter, a catalytic missionary and a lead paster, among various other ministry roles. Dwight and his wife Judy live in Cochrane, AB, and have two adult daughters with their own families. Dwight is passionate about seeing lives transformed by the power of the gospel.

Community Transformation: Risking it All to Win the Hearts of the Community - Victor Somers

This session will look at not only taking risks but the different kinds of risks we take when engaging our communities for the Gospel.

Victor and his family moved back to his childhood city in 2011. His goal was to plant a church that would matter to more than just those who show up on Sunday morning. Today Victor leads a church that welcomes thousands into bumping spaces designed to make a gospel difference. He is also a barista at Creative Grounds Cafe and manager of The Vogue, a live events venue owned by the church.


Saturday 3:45 -  Equipping Session 3

Handling Difficult People - Paul Johnson

If you're a leader, you've had your fair share of interactions with difficult people. Volcanos. Thumb-Suckers. Space Cadets. This seminar will explore ways to deal with difficult people gracefully and firmly. If you're a difficult person yourself, we might use you as a case study.

Paul is leader of the CNBC Church Strengthening team and pastor of ROOTS, an English congregation in Truth (Chinese) Baptist, Calgary and resident jokester of the CNBC.

 Personal Evangelism - Cesar Parra


In order to be effective proclaimers of the Gospel one on one, we must be good at developing relationships. This workshop will give you practical ways to be relational even if you are an introvert or you think you don't have the gift of evangelism. If we learn how and apply evangelistic principles, we can all do it!

CNBC Women: Designing Ministry to Meet Real Needs - Kathy Morales


Kathy Morales is a gifted teacher and conference speaker who has a passion for introducing people to Jesus. She is the team Leader for CNBC Women and also works part time as a Corporate Chaplain with Outreach Canada. She loves to facilitate opportunities for women to experience personal and spiritual growth.
