Join us in the beautiful river valley of Edmonton, Alberta, July 26–29 for Triennial 2018.

The theme of the 2018 Triennial is Shaped for Mission. Together we will explore and discover how God’s Spirit is shaping His church to join His mission in this world.

Shaw Conference Centre will host the NAB family as we gather together for Triennial 2018. Located in the heart of Edmonton, Shaw Centre is within walking distance of a portion of the River Valley Park System, one of the largest urban park systems in Canada. It is also within easy reach of much of downtown Edmonton. Join us in July as NAB churches, missionaries, and partnering organizations gather to celebrate, reconnect, and attune our hearts as one to follow where God is leading us. Come to Edmonton for Triennial 2018 to be Shaped.
