In preparation for the 68th Synod of Edmonton diocese, October 21-22, 2022, Bishop Steve has prepared the document Finding Our Way based on input from throughout the diocese. With the Gospel at the Center, it is founded on five Principles, the first of which is Transformative Discipleship:

An ongoing and transformative personal encounter with Jesus for every member of the Church is where everything else finds its source. This process, both individual and communal, is supported by intentional engagement with spiritual wisdom and practices from the Jesus way, both old and new. Inspired disciples who live Jesus-shaped lives are always the best witness to the Good News for others. 

The 12 Goals in Finding Our Way may overlap in their connection to the five Principles, however, Goals 1, 2 and 3 will seek to flesh out the Principle of Tranformative Discipleship.
