We believe that many marginalized voices are speaking but not being heard, both in our churches and beyond, and we're passionate about changing that reality. We believe that when the Gospel is seriously lived, it is liberating for all people, and we look forward to the day that a kaleidoscope of people with diverse lives and experiences will worship God together as the unified Body of Christ. We are...the Canadian Aboriginal Ministry Committee, Centre for Public Dialogue, Disability Concerns, Friendship Ministries, Home Missions, Office of Social Justice, Race Relations, Safe Church, World Renew, and World Missions.
