The Campus Evangelization Round Table Summit was borne out of a meeting of 25 or so campus ministers in August of 2019 who wanted to share our collective knowledge and experience to benefit campus ministry and students across Canada. Offered with the support of CCCM through its recently created Evangelization and Discipleship subcommittee, the goal of the Summit was not only to hear from speakers, but to mine the expertise of participants from a wide variety of contexts to enhance our overall understanding of best practices in campus ministry. In this way, we aimed to contribute to the larger discussion regarding campus ministry across Canada.
The summit was originally designed as an in-person event. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the format was changed to an online platform and the topics were adjusted to address the reality and challenges of ministry in a virtual environment. It took place on August 5 and 6, 2020. Through the round table discussions, a wealth of valuable information emerged, including innovative insights for planting the seeds of the Gospel in an online setting, as well as best practices that will continue to guide campus ministry well into the future.
Over two days, sixty-six participants heard from presenters, and split up into small groups to discuss the following topics in campus ministry: ● Evangelization with Gen Z, by presenter Pete Burak ● Online Evangelization and Outreach, by presenter Benjamin Turland ● Caring for Student Mental Health, by presenter Nicole LeBlanc ● Virtually Engaging Leaders for Mission, by presenter Marcel LeJeune
Hosted by the CCCM Evangelization and Discipleship Committee
