Key Info on CCACA 2021 JMC Online
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 JMC will not be a physical convention at the Brock University, but rather the convention will be conducted online. The theme is “A1:8 Our DNA” (A1:8 核心使命) focusing on the C&MA DNA of “Deeper Life” and “Global Missions”, particularly in the making of “Christ-Centred, Spirit-Empowered and Mission-Focused” disciples everywhere.
