TrueCity Conference 2016
How do we grow deeper in our relationship with Jesus as we join him in the mission he calls us to? TrueCity is a movement of churches unified by the Gospel, serving together for the good of the city. As we take up Jesus’ commission to make disciples, we recognize we still have so much to learn about how to go about this.
Kevin Makins is the founding pastor of Eucharist Church and the host of the GOOD GOD! podcast. Through storytelling, conversation and creative projects he is exploring what it means to follow Jesus in a post-Christian, Canadian culture. Kevin lives, works, plays and prays in downtown Hamilton.
Rev. Chris Schoon, M.Div., Th.M., serves as the Senior Pastor at First Hamilton Christian Reformed Church, an urban church rooted in the Durand and Kirkendall neighborhoods. Along with pastoring, Chris has taught mission related courses at Redeemer University College and Calvin Theological Seminary and is a doctoral candidate (ThD) at Wycliffe College with a focus on worship, discipleship, and evangelism within the missional church movement.
