Dr. Christopher Wright Visits Vancouver for Speaking Engagements

TORONTO — (CANADIAN CHRISTIAN NEWS SERVICE) — Dr. Christopher Wright, International Ministries Director for Langham Partnership, and prolific author and theologian, will visit Vancouver in May for several engagements.

Wright heads up the ministry started by theologian and evangelist John Stott. Langham’s 

vision is to see churches in the Majority World equipped for mission and growing to maturity in Christ through the ministry of pastors and leaders who believe, teach and live by the Word of God. Langham’s mission is to strengthen the ministry of the Word of God through: 1. Nurturing national movements for training in biblical preaching (Langham Preaching); 2. Multiplying the creation and distribution of evangelical literature (Langham Literature); and 3. Strengthening the theological training of pastors and leaders by qualified evangelical teachers (Langham Scholars).

Langham Canada currently hosts two scholars, from Kenya and Indonesia, respectively, and played a key editorial role in The South Asia Bible Commentary, the soon to be released latest project from Langham Literature.

Wright is a renowned Old Testament scholar and author of many titles, including The Mission of God: Unlocking the Bible’s Grand Narrative, chosen as a Christianity Today top title in 2007. 

People interested in hearing Wright, and learning more about Langham, are invited to attend a Langham gathering on Friday, May 8, at 7:30 pm at Granville Chapel, 5901 Granville St., Vancouver. 

The Vancouver Christian Business and Professional Association will also host an evening with Christopher Wright on Saturday, May 9 at 6pm at Kaya Malay Bistro 1063 W Broadway, Vancouver. Tickets are required for this evening that will include a talk on
“What Story Are You Living In? Life and Work in God’s World for God’s Mission.”
Christopher Wright is in Vancouver as a keynote speaker at Regent College’s annual Pastor’s Conference.
