The Aboriginal Ministry is made up of a national committee (Canadian Aboriginal Ministry Committee), three Urban Aboriginal Ministries, and a Justice and Reconciliation Mobilizer, each using their strengths to support healing and reconciliation between Aboriginal peoples and non-Aboriginal people in Canada. It is rooted in a recognition of our Creator’s love for all creation and in the understanding that we all have gifts to offer one another.
- The Canadian Aboriginal Ministry Committee (CAMC) works with CRC members and congregations to respond to God’s call to live in reconciled relationships as covenant (treaty) people before our Creator. It provides leadership and support for learning about Aboriginal justice and reconciliation and in putting good words and theology of healing, reconciliation and justice into action.
- The three Urban Aboriginal Ministries situated in Winnipeg, Regina and Edmonton each strive to create a space where Aboriginal people can feel safe,valued and respected to use their gifts and to grow.
- The Justice and Reconciliation Mobilizer, Shannon Perez, provides staff support to the Canadian Aboriginal Ministry Committee and facilitates communication within the Aboriginal Ministry, congregations and other agencies where common justice concerns are shared.
