Rev. Casely Essamuah, secretary of the Global Christian Forum, held a regional meeting in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, with Rev. David Wells, general superintendent of The Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada, and a representative group from various Christian communities in Canada. The Global Christian Forum Executive met in February in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where strengthening their focus on youth, regional consultations and strategic communications emerged as clear priorities. The GCF group meeting in the PAOC International office discussed these priorities as relates to the Canadian context.

The Global Christian Forum’s mandate is to offer new opportunities for broadening and deepening encounters among Christians from different traditions. Members meet across denominational, regional, national, ethnic and cultural boundaries. The Global Christian Forum is creating a place where various participants can collaborate to foster mutual respect, and to explore and address common concerns.
