join in the research efforts of one of our ambrose students
This letter is a request for assistance with a project I am conducting for my Master’s degree at Ambrose University, under the supervision of Dr. Monetta Bailey and Dr. Charlie Cook. The title of my research project is “Anti-Black Racism in Calgary: How it affects faith and Christian congregations”. The purpose of this study is to explore personal experiences of anti-Black racism in our city by holding interviews with people to learn their stories. I believe that each person’s experience holds truth, and that our stories are powerful connecting points for people and communities.
It is my hope that this type of research can help our society realize the truths and realities of racism in our own backyard, and inspire people to get engaged in discussions of equality. I am particularly passionate about encouraging these discussions in the church, as we believe that each person is made in the image of God and thus is deserving of respect and fair treatment. If you have Black heritage, identify as Christian, are at least 18 years of age, and have lived in Calgary for approximately a year, I would love to speak with you about your experiences with racism in our city.
If you (or someone you know) would like to participate in this study, you may contact me and we will discuss details of the project and any questions you may have. (Please contact the church office for contact details.)
Thank you for your consideration, and I hope to speak with you soon.
**Participation is completely voluntary, and this study has been reviewed and granted ethics approval through Ambrose University’s Research Ethics Board.

missional community at Skyview
Our Associate Pastor, Ryan, is currently working towards:
- Discerning the place of missional communities within our church, and;
- Overseeing the development and implementation of these communities.
The three-fold focus within missional community is: communion with God, deepening relationships within the church community, and reaching out to those outside the church. Ryan’s role in this first year will be to discern along with others within our community the way that this threefold focus can be embodied within our church context.
Stay tuned for more to come!
The basement concrete floor has been poured and work on installing the roof is underway. Thank you for your ongoing support.

Did you know?
Here at Skyview we regularly support missions both right here in Calgary and world wide through our district and denomination, which you can learn more about at Nazarene Missions International, as well as through partnership with two specific ministries:
Seed of Hope
The Seed of Hope is a community development ministry in the rural outskirts of Durban, South Africa, that supports the community through programs focused on education and care. Learn more about who they are and how you can get involved here. Visit our missions page for more updates!
Youth unlimited calgary
Youth Unlimited is a community organzation that focuses on the support of young people through programs that assist them with all needs, from physical and emotional health and well being, spiritual support, employment support, and support of the whole family through times of difficulty. Learn more about this organization here, or take a look at their latest newsletter.
Our district NYI (Nazarene Youth International) were recently challenged to join The Justice Movement – a voice for justice and compassion in the world. The movement is made of kids, students, young adults, families, and churches that believe they can make a difference in each other’s lives. The movement amplifies the voice of the weak and responds to their needs. A number of Skyview youth, young adults and leaders have taken up the Just Water challenge – drinking only water for a select period of time, while raising awareness and funds for the global water crisis. Read their stories on the Just Water page and see how you can encourage, pray for and donate.
