If you would like to take advantage of this arrangement please put your name on the sign-up sheet at the back of the sanctuary. If you can help provide rides for others please put your name on the sign-up sheet and write “Driver” beside it.

PCC MISSION MOMENTS Equipping and nurturing future church leaders

Gifts to Presbyterians Sharing equip and nurture future church leaders who in turn will equip and nurture others to witness faithfully in the world. In 2017, 18 students graduated from our three theological colleges – Knox College in Toronto, The Presbyterian College in Montreal and Vancouver School of Theology and St. Andrew’s Hall in Vancouver. These colleges provide a strong academic and practical foundation to prepare students to serve our congregations. The PCC supports ministry candidates and their presbyteries as they work to discern the candidate’s call. In 2017, 16 candidates attended the PCC’s Guidance Conference, which helps participants recognize their abilities, strengths, and weaknesses and develop a plan for growth as they move forward. Together, we also encourage and support new clergy who have just begun their ministries.
