Missions Ministry

Publish Date

"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” - Matthew 28:16-20

 

MINISTRY PURPOSE

Loving people means introducing them to Jesus, who is the very expression of Love unconditional. We seek to connect people to God in a very real way, so that they, who are also created in the image of God and whom we have been called to love, will experience the same transformation when they accept Him into their lives.

The Missions Ministry Team leads the church to identify opportunities for service locally and globally that fulfills its mission of forming men and women into genuine followers of Christ. This team provides information, training, and coordination of mission activities.

We are a church that is committed to mission. God is a missional God and calls us to join him in living out and sharing the Good News, which is the message that God loves us and calls us into a new and abundant life in and through Jesus Christ. We are involved in missions both local and overseas.

TSAWOUT SERVICE TRIP

6 day trip that happens every August
For anyone ages 15 & up

Our team has established a relationship with our friends from the Tsawout community for over 12 years. Every year, we would send a team to the Tsawout Nation Reserve at Vancouver Island to co-host a week-long Kids Program with the local church Tsawout Assembly of Praise.  We also host a smaller weekend trip in the winter before the end of the calendar year to reconnect and serve our friends.

For more information about our Tsawout Trip, contact us at vcbctsawout@gmail.com.
