Mission: The ABA exists to connect and enable churches to impact communities for the growth and advancement of the kingdom of God in Alberta and the world."
Banff Pastors Conference
Each year in November, North American Baptist pastors and spouses from Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia gather in Banff, AB, for an outstanding time of worship, inspiration and relaxation. This event is a good reminder that the ABA is part of a larger ministry that stretches far beyond Alberta, and it is an opportunity to build relationships with pastoral colleagues from across western Canada. Those who attend enjoy the wonder of Banff National Park, the exceptional amenities of Banff Park Lodge, encouragement and challenge from outstanding speakers. Renewal, relaxation and rest are the order of the day.

Having established church planting as a priority of the ABA, and in an effort to sharpen the focus on church planting, the Fall 2016 ReNew event will seek to address this issue with the leaders of ABA churches. As we meet in the five regions of the association we will engage in a conversation as to how every ABA church might participate in church planting in a real and meaningful way.
With a video address from Norm Poehlke, NAB International Office, and Johnny Thiessen, C2C, we will hear of renewed conference level focus on church planting and of what resources are available to us.
In this conversation, you will help us clarify how to effectively engage church planting in Alberta and you will be asked to consider the role of your local church in this effort.
You are invited. Bring your board; bring interested church members; bring your pastor. This will prove to be a watershed moment in the mission and ministry of your association.
