Swimming for God

We believe that God’s radical hospitality calls Manitou Conference to:

  • Journey into new ways of being church and,
  • Understand and engage with the struggle for dignity and economic justice for our neighbours and God’s Creation


The President of Manitou Conference, Maxine McVey, is available to visit your congregation to speak about our Conference Priorities.  Would YOU like a visit from her?
