Monday to Saturday: Ministering in Your Workplace


  • Westminster Abbey 34224 Dewdney Trunk Road Mission, BC, V2V 6Y4 Canada (map)

A weekend of teaching, prayer and contemplation at Westminster Abbey on the theology and spirituality of influence. Each participant will have a private room with ensuite, linens and five meals included. Cost is $250 CAD ($200 USD) per person which includes five meals and two nights in a private room with ensuite.

We will explore the theology, dynamics and practice of being a pastor in the workplace. More than chaplaincy—doing ministerial church activities in the workplace—students will explore multiple dimensions of caring for whole persons in their workplaces. We will also engage people with personal formation essential for ministering in a challenging context.

This course is for: (1) Church pastors who intend to extend ministry to the members in the marketplace; (2) Business owners/executives and employees who intend to develop a pastoring ministry in their workplace; (3) Members of the people of God who intend to pursue a role as marketplace pastors in their workplace or through their jobs/workplace.

The Westminster Abbey location. This is a Benedictine monastery in Mission, BC and each participant will have a private room with an ensuite bath. There are a few double rooms and spouses are welcome. The pace of the course will be teaching followed by prayer and reflection.
