Growth? What are we thinking?

In a world constantly striving for growth, have you ever stopped what we mean by growth? Manitou Intentional Learning Community invites you to an online conversation with Rev. Calin Lau, Tuesday, April 9th at 7 PM. Join us on an exploration of church growth, revitalization, and renewal. This session isn’t just about listening; it’s an invitation to dialogue, to question, and to discover together.

What does growth mean to you? What kind of ‘growth’ do our communities genuinely need? These questions and more will be the fuel for our discussion, guided by the insightful Rev. Calin Lau, the United Church of Canada Growth Animator for Central and Northern Ontario. Rev. Lau brings a wealth of diverse experiences and a deep passion for nurturing faith communities. From his early days as a teacher and preacher in Hong Kong to his impactful ministries and experiences in Canada, his journey is one of faith, resilience, and dedication to growth in its most holistic sense. Rev. Lau’s contributions span across various initiatives, including Racial Justice workshops, planning for emerging faith communities, and projects like the Living Presence Ministry and Hong Kong Newcomers. His approach to growth is not just about numbers; it’s about encouraging communities to take risks, stay connected, and foster environments where faith can flourish in the most inviting and interconnected ways.

Rev. Lau

As Rev. Lau steps into his role within the Canadian Shield and Shining Waters Regional Councils, he aims to infuse his work with insight, passion, optimism, and curiosity. This event is a unique opportunity to tap into that vision, to share your thoughts, and to engage in meaningful dialogue about the future of our faith communities.

Don’t miss out on this compelling conversation. What are your questions about church growth? Come prepared to explore, to challenge, and to be inspired.

Let’s embark on this journey together, seeking the growth we need, not just the growth we’ve come to expect.
