STAY TUNED FOR MORE TEAM UPDATES
We are driven to live by faith & biblical values in our unique bridge-building role. With historical baggage & ongoing missteps of the Church, the challenge to represent the Church in child welfare is not lost on us. Yet, we love the Church deeply; grieving for her & rooting for her in all that we do. Our faith is our "why" in what we do & we enjoy re-imagining what biblical Christianity looks like in our Canadian contexts. We value biblical unity & functional diversity within the Church, to live out genuine love for God & our neighbour.
We respectfully acknowledge that Canadian churches are on treaty lands and hold responsibility as treaty people to pursue truth and reconciliation for the well-being of our nation's future. We value understanding the worldviews of those involved in child welfare & believe Christianity can be lived out in context, including our language and approach. We value healthy relationships amidst diversity, seeking to be relevant in the contextualization of our resources, methods, & services, eh?!
In an era of relational poverty, we are determined to build healthy diverse relationships; connecting uncommon dots across all sectors involved in child welfare; discovering effective working partnerships & facilitating opportunities for the Church to extend beyond herself with informed action
