Mission | Toronto | Canada: Mission Team Training with Dan Collison

It’s context. It’s culture. It’s Canada. Welcome to “Mission | Toronto | Canada: Mission Team Training with Dan Collison,” a resource for everyone interested in the contextualization of the Gospel for different cultures; and especially for those involved in or considering a partnership in Greater-Toronto.

Join your host Dan Collison as he and his fellow pastors prepare your teams to be effective for Christ in this, one of the most strategic and most diverse regions in North America.

Produced by the Northeast Church Planting Coalition for the Office of Great Commission Partnerships of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina, this four-part video series takes a look inside 1) Canada, 2) Toronto, 3) Church Planting, and 4) a posture called F.L.U.I.D. Each of the 20-minute sessions is designed to be viewed in order, but may also be useful as a stand-alone training.

Special thanks to Mike Sowers and Chuck Reigster of the BSCNC, and to Dan Collison and all of the faithful friends in Canada who made this project possible; Andrew Lamme, Brett Porter, Greg Alexander, Seba Vasquez, Robin Vasti, Daniel Smith, Jarret Hamilton, Tim Heerebout, Jason McGibbon, Ken Wiliams, Sath Arulvarathan, Darryl Weinberg, Rudy Geronimo, Ken Stravens and Arnold Wong.

Session No. 4 – F.L.U.I.D.: A Culturally Appropriate Posture for Gospel Effectiveness
