But most importantly, they came for politics. That’s where the fun really began. The students listened to presentations from a...

24 Jul 2014 ARPA National Tour 2014: Schedule and Locations

Canada in 2020: Still a Land Glorious and Free?: Working for a better future in the knowledge of God’s Providence Do Canadian Christians have 2020 vision? They ought to. In just the last year, euthanasia was legalized, our prostitution law was struck down, and Christians are told that they may not practice law if they join a community committed to God’s standards for sexuality. These recent developments give Christians reason for concern over the future of our nation and for our freedom to live out our faith. ARPA’s André Schutten (legal counsel), Mark Penninga (executive director) and Bruce DeBoer (Grassroots Coordinator) will discuss the near future of Canada, and what we need to focus on today for the sake of the next generation.
