Pathfinder Winter Retreat 2018

Our Theme for Winter Retreat this year is “C.S.I.” (Christian Scripture Investigation). 2 Timothy 3:16-17 says “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” We are encouraging our Pathfinders to search the scriptures diligently, God wants them to be fully equipped with the knowledge of His Word!

Pastor Walter Rogers loves children and has been working in Children’s Ministry since his early years at CUC. From 2009 until he returned to BC, Walter pastored the Harbor of Hope Church in Benton Harbor, MI, as both the senior and kids’ pastor. Walter is well-known for his expertise in Children’s Ministry. He has a servant leadership style for ministering and leading younger hearts to Jesus. Walter is married to Sarah and they have two children – Clayton & Kodiak nearly four and two years old respectively. The Aldergrove Church family is thrilled and blessed to have them as part of their Ministerial Team.

ShareHim South Africa Evangelism Trip

The Alberta Conference Youth Department has been offered the opportunity to partner with ShareHim in taking Youth and Young Adult Volunteers to South Africa for an Evangelism trip from May 7 to 23, 2018. I believe this will be a great opportunity for our Youth and Young Adults, and specifically our Adventist Students that attend public universities and colleges here in Alberta and Northwest Territories. The experience gained on such a trip as this can prove to be very beneficial to these young people in particular, as they would gain experience that can be used on the mission fields in which they socialize on a daily basis, study, and live – the college and university campus and work places.

I am truly excited about this opportunity and do look forward to embarking on this adventure together with our youth and young adults. For more information about this Evangelism Trip and to submit an application, please CLICK HERE!
