Circle Summit 2017

This years Circle Summit was a fantastic conference; loaded with great fellowship and excellent teaching. If you missed it, you missed a wonderful time. We enjoyed sessions dealing with "Hurdles" that can exist in cross-cultural ministry.

At Arrowhead it is our hearts desire to see the Gospel of Jesus Christ clearly and fully proclaimed to the First Nations people of Atlantic Canada. In the book of Matthew the great commission was given to the local church, as Christians we have a burning desire to see the gospel communicated and to see people come to repentance and faith in the God of all creation. There are so many things that can complicate the effective communication of God’s Truth, that it is not only worth our while; but an exercise in obedience to examine just how we can ensure that when we proclaim the gospel, that it is being understood clearly.

It is our desire for the Circle Summit is that it will give us an opportunity to examine just what is involved in obeying the great commission in a cross cultural setting, and doing so in a way that is as glorifying to God as it is effective.

We were joined by a number of speakers who walked with us through some vital discussions, and challenged us to consider just how we might be most effective and faithful to the Great Commission, locally; cross-culturally!
