Location: Regent College, 5800 University Blvd., Vancouver, BC
In spite of the many failures in the church’s treatment of Canada’s First Nations, many of this land’s indigenous people hold a vibrant and deeply rooted Christian faith.

Learn how the gospel has found powerful and unique expression in a variety of indigenous contexts; face the troubling story of discrimination toward our indigenous brothers and sisters in the church and in Canadian society; and consider your own role in the movement toward reconciliation, both in the church and beyond.

Whether you’ve spent years studying the history of Canadian indigenous peoples, or are just beginning to familiarize yourself with the issues, we’re confident you’ll benefit from the wisdom of these four leading thinkers. The conference will be especially helpful for church members and leaders seeking to foster fruitful, constructive engagement with these issues in their faith communities.

This event is co-sponsored by Regent College; Faith in Canada 150, a Cardus initiative; and the Indigenous Studies Program at Vancouver School of Theology, which has served in an advisory role in planning and facilitating this event.

Hosts/moderators: Jeff Greenman, President, Regent College & Michael van Pelt, President, Cardus.
