- About Us
This class is designed to lead participants through the formation of the early church to the present day (over 2,000 years). Paying attention to church history helps us to understand how God has been moving throughout history in the world. As well, we can see the progression of how the Church has changed and developed in both polity and theology. The ultimate goal is to appreciate the breadth of the Church and our place in it.
Once per quarter everyone who leads a ministry at Northview, or who expresses leadership capacity, are gathered together for a leadership morning. The day is split into two main sections. For the first two hours we focus in on a leadership topic, this time it was The Discipline of Self-Development, and then for the second two hours we divide by gender and do a formational time.
Paul’s letter to the Philippians is written to a group of Christians who desperately needed encouragement and strength. They had become followers of Jesus through the ministry of Paul, but now found themselves in a hostile world. Paul was in prison, divisions were erupting in the church and pressure was bring applied by outside groups. As a result they were losing confidence, hope and joy. This picture is not far off from what many Christians are experiencing today, so Paul has a word for us too; Rejoice! This little letter explodes with the how and why the church can rejoice in the midst of difficult times.

The Regina Evangelical Ministerial Association meets on the third Tuesday of every month to encourage ministry workers and to engage in prayer with each other. On Tuesday, January 17, 2017 Pastor David was asked to lead a devotional. Pastor David focused on the idea that God has called church leadership to equip other leaders to do the work of pastoral ministry (Ephesians 4). Once that priority is established then we need to know what that looks like, so we examined Jesus’ sending of the twelve in ministry (Matthew 10).

Romans is, almost without question, one of the most important books in the Christian Bible. In this letter the Apostle Paul systematically lays out his understanding of the gospel, particularly how through the death and resurrection of Jesus, God has fulfilled his plans and purposes of the world. Throughout Church history, fresh readings of Romans has led to widespread revival. It is our desire to understand how the cross of Jesus has become the climax of history and how that event ought to shape us as individuals and as the Church.
