Kootenay Faith Fest 2019

Jun 21-23
Kootenay Faith Fest 2019

It’s June! As spring turns to summer across our Pacific Mountain Regional Council, the planning team of the Kootenay Faith Fest are ready to welcome you, their Siblings in Christ! From nearby or far away, there is still time to join the Festival, and travel bursaries are available.

At Kootenay Faith Fest 2019…

Keynote Speaker Rev. Carol Howard Merritt travels north from Chattanooga, Tennessee – inviting us into creative, reflective conversation, re-imagining and healing in our progressive, multi-generational Christian contexts. Kootenay Faith Fest planning team member and Castlegar United minister Rev Greg Powell interviewed Carol this week, in anticipation of her time with us at the festival.
