Pastors, Leaders and Clergy Summit 2014

United In Christ Meetings & Conferences

UIC Canada - A meeting among Christians of all denominations

The United In Christ meetings are an informal encounter between Christian leaders who share a common interest in reconciliation and unity in the Body of Christ; most hold to a Charismatic/Pentecostal experience. They are sponsored by United in Christ, (International Center for the Reconciliation of Christians) Canada and USA.
It is a goal of these meetings to invite and encourage conversation with Christian leaders who can affect their respective movements and hopefully bring about transformation.
Please note these informal meetings are sponsored by United In Christ; they are neither an official activity nor an official dialogue of any particular church. Participants come as individuals to share with other individuals and not to act as representatives of their respective organizations or associations. Often they are by invitation only; Invitees’ spouses are welcome.
United In Christ is a not-for-profit organization with recognition in both The United States and Canada.
