The Faith and Life Team can help. We exist to help you get from here to there in good health.

When the way ahead isn’t very clear . . .
When we are constantly tempted to wander off the path that has called us to walk . . .
When we need encouragement to keep walking . . .
When we wonder which direction to turn at a fork in the path . . .
When we disagree about how to get from here to there . . .
When we need resources to get us there . . .

We take the pulse of the churches of the Ontario MB Conference.
