We're inviting anyone in their 20's and 30's to join us for a deep dive into discernment and its implications for how we follow Jesus! Life is full of so many choices. How can you know what's best when you're going beyond what takeout to order or what show to watch? Discernment is a spiritual muscle with drastic implications when it's weak, for us personally as well as for the Church. An essential for life discernment has implications for vocation, relationships, leadership, and a whole lot more. Join us for the REACH Conference this year to learn the value of discernment, increase your ability to listen to the Holy Spirit, and gain practical skills for growing as a follower of Christ. Tickets are $25 per person for this online, highly interactive equipping conference. Please note: couples, housemates, friends should register separately and use individual devices to attend the REACH Conference. Maximizing interaction and engagement with others will enrich your whole conference experience!Friday Feb 25, 7-9pm (MST)Saturday Feb 26, 10am - 4pm (MST) For further details and to register, CLICK HERE! Please contact Reach 2022 for any other inquiries. Spread the word in your local church and with your friends! Again, anyone in their 20's and 30's is welcome to participate! REACH Speakers David & Anita RuisNational DirectorsDavid and Anita have been the National Directors of Vineyard Canada since 2014. They co-lead Kelowna Vineyard. A burning passion for the Ruises is both practical and theological integration of creative worship in church community and deep life engagement with issues of poverty and social injustice. As a team, David and Anita are also known to be effective church planters and seasoned pastors, having established churches in Canada and the US, within the Vineyard family of churches. Much of the Ruis' focus has been in indigenous settings, working with people experiencing poverty and subsequent marginalization. Todd RutkowskiLeadership Development & Community HealthTodd has prioritized cultivating the emotional and spiritual health of communities and their leaders. Having pioneered several organizations (including church planting), Todd has developed a keen intuition for organizational psychology and people development. He served as the North American Director of a youth organization before joining the Vineyard in 1995 to help plant the North Langley Vineyard. Todd has travelled to more than 45 countries, immersing himself in culture shaping and, of course, international cuisine.
