God and Government Youth Conference

Preparations continue for ARPA Canada’s first God and Government Youth Conference in Ottawa. Grassroots engagement manager Colin Postma, says there were a total of 44 applications from across the country for 28 positions. Notifications will now go out to the people who’ve been selected. Postma says the conference will feature training and engagement, with opportunities for participants to meet with MPs and Senators as part of the event. The final day will also include an opportunity to participate in the annual Reformed Pro-Life prayer service and the annual March for Life on Parliament Hill.

Postma adds they’re looking for some help from the ARPA membership. “Anyone who has Air Miles or Aeroplan Reward points that they’d like to donate to the students (to cover their travel expenses), especially from the Western Provinces, we’d be grateful to have them, along with any other donations they’d like to make to make this conference a success.”

If you’d like to donate, you can contact ARPA’s administrative assistant, Hannah Sikkema, by emailing [email protected].

The event runs May 8th through 11th.
