Jim Alford Pastor of Youth and Community Whitby Baptist Church (Recorded: May 8, 2020) INSIGHTS FROM JIM Helping to organize information in 1 central location is crucial.

I recently returned from an opportunity to serve with our brothers and sisters in the CBAC (Canadian Baptists of Atlantic Canada). Along with my fellow CBOQ team, Chantelle Garvin and Gordon Nichols, we served at their annual Youth Conference, Springforth in Moncton, NB. This conference brings students from across Atlantic Canada to two sites. High School students meet at Crandall University, while Middle School students meet at Moncton Wesleyan Church.
This past year, we’ve had MANY people helping with our ministries. As we finish the ministry year, we’d like to recognize all our volunteers and staff (93 in total) for their contributions since September.
