R. Alex Sim Rural Ministry Symposium
The R. Alex Sim Rural Ministry Symposium is held biennially, under the auspices of Queen’s Theological College, Kingston, to nurture and empower rural churches. It is co-ordinated by an ecumenical Planning Committee, which includes members from Anglican, Lutheran, Presbyterian, Salvation Army and United Churches. The location of the symposia alternates between eastern Ontario and Southwestern Ontario.
R. Alex Sim was a rural sociologist and educator whose life epitomized concern for, and a commitment to, rural Canada and its people. In recognition of his interests and support of rural communities and the rural church, these ongoing Rural Ministry Symposia have been named in his honour.
