Get Involved in the Mission Central Conference

We are excited about the 2022 Mission Central Conferences: SERVE, CREATE and GROW. Attendees at our conferences may know you as exhibitors and sponsors but we know you as partners in the Gospel. Partner Agencies are invited to join us in our vision of a vibrant transformative church where every Christian takes their place in the body of Christ and contributes to mission, according to their calling, gifts and talents.


SERVE is the new name of Missions Fest Vancouver. In many ways it is a traditional missions conference...with a twist. In light of the discipleship crisis that we are experiencing here in Canada we ask all our partner agencies to orient their engagement with attendees and churches towards helping people grow as missional disciples. This may mean putting your brand second, as we help people enter their calling as missional disciples of Jesus.

CREATE is our conference stream that helps facilitate the growth of a community of generative Christian artists with the goal of seeing them become missional disciples.

GROW is discipleship stream that wants to help everyone grow in the characteristics of a mature disciple and to grow in community with an aim of impacting the spheres of influence that God has put us in.


  • SERVE - January 28-30, 2022 - Online
  • CREATE - February 25-27, 2022 - Hybrid (circumstances allowing)
  • GROW - TBD, but possibly June 2022 in-person

We invite every agency to prayerfully discern their involvement in the conference. If your agency feels led to participate, we then would ask you to consider how you will help us to grow missional disciples.

What people are saying about SERVE:

I appreciated every organization that showed up for this conference, especially during the current pandemic. If they showed up, I wanted to know who they were and what they were about. SERVE was an educational experience.  I learned about organizations that I didn’t know about.  It really showed me how little I know about the work that is going on in the world.

It was a great platform for connection, growth, reflection and learning. The ability to access materials afterwards is an added benefit.
