Mission Central will be inviting seminar submissions for the upcoming 2023 SERVE Conference (formerly Missions Fest Vancouver). SERVE is Mission Central conference focused on missions, and will be held on January 27–29 at the Vancouver Convention Centre.

Seminars that will receive the strongest consideration will express fresh approaches to engaging the world around us with the good news and love of God. We welcome stories of the mighty works of God told by those who experience them. Our seminars are grouped into categories such as:

  1. Business and Technology
  2. Discipleship
  3. Going Global — Cross Cultural Mission
  4. Gospel Proclamation
  5. Justice (Social and Environmental)
  6. Local Mission and Church Planting
  7. Missions and the Arts
  8. Preparing to go / Supporting Missions
  9. Relief and Development

New Seminar proposals will be received from April 1, 2022 until August 15, 2022. Applicants are asked to apply to teach one adult seminar. 

During September and October 2022 the seminar committee will be reviewing all seminar proposals. All applicants will receive an email from Mission Central sometime around the last week of October 2022 informing them whether or not their proposal was selected for presentation.
