Cruxifusion formed in 2011 to bring together ministry personnel and students within the United Church who celebrate Jesus Christ.
Seeds were planted by The Community of Concern, which generously supported our founding conference. The National Alliance of Covenanting Congregations and Fellowship Magazine also blessed us with gifts as the life of their organizations drew to an end.
Since then, we’ve had three more successful conferences. People have gathered for worship, community and learning. Cruxifusion has connected hundreds of people together. We are spreading the love of Jesus Christ within the United Church of Canada.
To continue offering these valuable conferences, we need your help.
First and foremost, we need your prayer. Please pray for our leadership. Pray for our churches. Pray for Cruxifusion. And prayer for the whole United Church of Canada as we seek to follow in the ways of Jesus Christ, the true head of the church.
To make our conferences affordable for Christ-centred United Church ministers and student ministers, we only charge a minimal fee to come. 2015’s conference registration was $350. This covered everything: registration, food, accommodation, and travel whether you were from Burlington, British Columbia or Newfoundland! We could offer this gift to each participant because of financial donations we’d received. In 2015 we had 81 attendees, including 12 student ministers whose attendance was largely subsidized by Cruxifusion. People came from 8 provinces, including 26 who flew in from outside Ontario.
As you can imagine, the $350 registration does not cover the actual costs of running the conference. We need your help to continue this Christ-centered conference, with its travel pool and significant subsidy for ministry students. Could you prayerfully consider supporting this worthy group of ministers.
A $5 per month donation covers the meals for one attendee for the entire conference.
$10 per month covers one day of a participants registration.
$20 per month covers the registration of a student wishing to attend our conference.
$30 per month covers the cost of a hotel room for the entire conference.
We have published videos of our conferences on this website to share with the entire denomination, along with Advent and Lent devotionals. We wish to share our love of Jesus Christ with the entirety of the United Church of Canada. Conference attendees talk about the deepening fidelity to Jesus and life-giving support for one another they have received from their time together.
We value your prayers and support. With strong, faith-filled congregations and people who are passionate for Jesus Christ in our churches, organizations such as Cruxifusion will thrive and help connect people who are looking for Light and Hope in the world.
God bless you,
The Cruxifusion Board
