WHAT IS ONE?

Our world is rapidly changing and the issues are complex. It is easy for the local church to feel overwhelmed, isolated and ineffective. One Conferences, growing out of what was formerly Break Forth Canada, serves the church of Canada by helping to unify, equip and empower Christians to confidently live out the mission of Jesus. We gather people who are passionate about building the Church, provide space for thoughtful and innovative dialogue, and we lean into the challenges facing the church in Canada, together.

Building the Church Today to be the Church of Tomorrow.

 
 
 

OUR STORY

Launched in a church basement in Edmonton, Break Forth has been serving the church in Canada for over 20 years. As the cultural and spiritual landscape of our country continues to shift and change, we believe the Church has an opportunity to proclaim the love and grace of Jesus as a cornerstone for the culture around us. We engage in the world prayerfully, strategically and humbly. As One.

In spite of increased connectivity and freedom, people feel more isolated and dissatisfied than ever before. We all have a driving need for inspiration and hope in the deepest parts of who we are.

Jesus in the One to meet that need.

How do we as Christians offer this good news to our world? Often we feel weary and isolated ourselves. We need empowering moments of connection with the living God. We need renewal, wisdom and clarity. We need each other.

One Conferences are for the Church - building the Church today to be the Church of tomorrow. These events set the table for a family conversation, bringing different voices together and creating an environment of warmth, compassion and love. We gather the broader Church to worship, learn, listen and pray together.

One exists to serve. We are committed to continually asking what it is local churches need to feel empowered, equipped and connected. We build gatherings that speak to the greatest needs of the present and future Church.

One is for you. You are welcome no matter where you are at on your spiritual journey.

One is for the glory of God.
