Location: Fosmark Centre at Trinity Western Seminary

Worship music opened up the morning chapel and set the mood so naturally as I was invited by Jeffrey Chan to share about serving in Kingdom missional work. A four-letter word that has been cropping up so much lately, LOVE, has been the thread to all that work – in our own workplace, our community, on the streets.
We all have conditions surrounding love; for example, we hope that the individuals we meet on the street will change over time. However, we must operate as God does, by loving each other unconditionally. This is the core of our mission statement at NightShift. We go out into our communities and put a lovin’ on people – we meet them where they are – and it may look like a bowl of soup or a blanket that we’re handing out, but it’s so much more. We meet the people we must love, we must be the change, one step at a time. If each of us does a little, together we can shift a little more.
ACTS Seminaries is a consortium of five seminaries (Canadian Baptist, Canadian Pentecostal, Northwest Baptist, Mennonite Brethren Biblical and Trinity Western Seminary) and the chapels are an opportunity for local or international Christian leaders to share with students, staff and faculty, what God is doing in and through their lives and their ministry.
