Global Missionaries

This year, our church will collaborate with missionaries and missions agencies based in eleven different countries. Some of our missions work will be focused on youth and immigrants in Canada, while others will support ministry in Africa, Europe and Japan, as well as Central and South America. Several of our partners are also engaged in ministry with expansive reach, such as Bible translation and distance learning.
