Our vision for the Van-Es Camp and Conference Centre is to be a vibrant, year-round conference, meeting, camping and retreat facility known for Christian hospitality.

Our overall mission is to invite people of all ages to experience the love of Jesus Christ and to grow spiritually within a natural setting which is safe and fun.

The Moravian Church is a Christian organization with more than five hundred and fifty years of history. We are the oldest Protestant denomination in the world. Of us you could say that we have a heartbeat for God, and a passion for people. We are part of the Unitas Fratrum, the Moravian Unity of the world wide Moravian Church. And our motto is:

In Essentials, Unity
In Non-Essentials, Liberty
In All Things, Love

And our faith tradition is best summarized in our core values:

  • Focus on Jesus
  • Make disciples
  • Truly love the discipline of worship, study and prayer
  • Serve
  • Extend love, understanding and compassion to all people
  • Develop and provide leadership
  • Be led by the teaching of the Holy Spirit
  • Be open to new and exciting possibilities of mission

The Moravian Church is a worldwide church, with more than 750,000 members, organized in 19 provinces around the world. In Canada, there are eight congregations in Alberta, as well as congregations in Ontario & Labrador. Although our history and identity are unique, we remain deeply connected with our bothers and sisters in other congregations across the Moravian Church Northern Province.
