Advance Conference 2020

Connect with leaders from across Canada and other parts of the world. We will explore a life…fueled by joy!

This conference is for everyone who is committed to the Navigator vision of raising up generations of disciplemakers. Reconnect, grow and collaborate with your fellow Navigators as we explore the theme of Hope and its connection to our mission of proclaiming and embodying the good news of Jesus.

As our Navigator vision states, we want to see “ordinary people, in many walks of life,  joyfully leading integrated lives.

How can we experience joy in the challenge and struggle of life and ministry? How can we cultivate a life of joy? How can we stay connected with the joy of Jesus and His faithful presence as we seek to guide people into a deep, ongoing connection with Him? At Advance 2020 we will explore all this and it is our hope you will leave being Refuelled by Joy!

On the shores of Lake Ontario and the “thousand islands”, we invite all Navigators to come together to pray, connect and imagine what our ministries could look like with a refreshed vision of Hope and Joy coursing through every one. Our guest speakers will challenge you with content to inspire your imagination as you gather within diverse groups to share ideas and learn together. Through Bible study and vigorous discussion, we trust the Holy Spirit will bring forth fresh and exciting insights for you to bring back to your ministries and the individuals you are discipling.

Overall awesome experience! It is a fan the flame experience that I look forward to every time!

Well done. I appreciate how hard you all worked to deliver a great product. I applaud the excellence of all aspects.

Praise the Lord for all He has accomplished through this time together!

Thank you to all who contributed to making this conference such a huge success. It bore much fruit.

Overall a good job and many aspects were great. It was a fun conference.

This was one of the best conferences I have attended (and I have attended many!)

Overall had an amazing , amazing conference!!

Loved it; we were challenged in uncomfortable ways to work together more cohesively. Lovely venue; so very memorable. I will never forget it.

Thank you for all the work that was put into it. It was a real success and a great blessing for each one. Great to reconnect after a long period.

I have several friends who came to mind through the week that I would have loved to invite next time. I liked that it was more about the Kingdom and not so much a “staff” thing and I could really see this expanding in the future.

I can’t wait to attend the next one. In the meantime, I will now be searching for a Navigator mentor for myself and looking for opportunities to serve.

A wonderful time renewing friendships, meeting new young Navigators; came away refreshed, renewed and encouraged!

Well done everyone!! A highlight of my years on staff! Thanks for everyone’s efforts to pull this off!

This conference really raised the bar.

A wonderful time renewing old friendships, meeting new and delightful young Navigators. I came away refreshed, renewed and encouraged! 33 years later I still cannot find the words to express my thankfulness for the people who have invested in me! Thanking God for all of you!
