Join us for FH Canada’s virtual conference Flourishing: Uprooting Poverty, Planting Hope on May 7 & 8, 2021

About this Event

FH Canada’s unique virtual conference, Flourishing, will personally engage Canadians like you in the poverty conversation. Over the course of this two-day online gathering, you’ll be invited to deep dive into a biblical perspective on the root causes and solutions to poverty.

Speakers from across Canada, including keynote speaker Danielle Strickland, will challenge the common narrative that poverty is about a “lack of stuff” and assert that it’s really all about relationships. Together, we’ll explore poverty as reconciling relationships with God, Others, Self, and Creation. Combining theory and practice, Flourishing will equip you to make a practical difference here at home and around the world.

May 7 & 8, 2021 daily from 8:30am-12:30pm PST / 9:30am-1:30pm MST / 11:30am-3:30pm EST / 12:30-4:30PM AST
