If your congregation is considering partnerships with other congregations or denominations, there are no shortage of questions. What is the best model for our context? What financial information should we be aware of? How do we co-create a new vision together?

This workshop is for congregation members and their leadership teams to come together and learn from real-life examples of partnership. You will leave with a good understanding of the various models for partnership, processes and issues to work through, and inspiration on how to thrive in your new form.

Read about the workshop and the workshop leader David Raymond on the Leadershift website.

Registration also available by calling Brenda Wolff, at the BC Conference office - 604-431-0434, ext. 308.

External Organizational Audit completed in 2016

Every three years the BC Conference Executive hires an independent “auditor” to look at the whole work of BC Conference (not just its finances). The goal is to make sure the work being done is following the purposes and goals of the Conference and is being done in an effective and efficient manner.

In 2016 the well-known church governance “guru”, Dan Hotchkiss, carried out the review. Since receiving his report in November the Conference Executive has been discussing it and exploring ways of following up on its recommendations.

His findings and recommendations can be read here.
