Vancouver School of Theology &
Christ Church Cathedral present
A free workshop with The Rev. Scott Gunn


Sometimes you hear people say the church is dying and that our task is to save it. Scott Gunn will lead us through conversation about how Jesus promised that the gates of hell would not prevail against the church, and he’s the saviour, not us! But as we look toward the future in a post-Christendom world, the church needs to focus on discipleship and evangelism in a way it has not done for centuries.

The Rev. Scott Gunn is executive director of Forward Movement, a discipleship ministry of the Episcopal Church in the USA. He travels widely as preacher, speaker, and retreat leader. Author of several books, his most recent book is Easter Triumph, Easter Joy: Meditations for the Fifty Days of Eastertide. Prior to serving at Forward Movement, Scott was a parish priest in the Diocese of Rhode Island. Before that, he had a career in information technology. He lives in Cincinnati, Ohio with his spouse, the Rev. Sherilyn Pearce.

Lunch is included for in-person attendees.
