Endorsing this Research
The work of Flourishing Congregations Institute will contribute to a better understanding of the milieu that we find ourselves in as Christians in Canada, called to evangelize the culture. The research that they will conduct will provide meaningful data that may help Christian denominations not only in their own pastoral planning but also in bridging the gap between denominations through greater exchange of shared experiences in facing together the emerging realities in the Canadian pastoral landscape.
