Stories, practical resources & thought-provoking articles to help mobilize God's people in Canada to be fruitfully engaged with God, on mission.
As a Christian for almost 40 years, I have been taught that the best way to develop mature disciples of Jesus Christ is primarily through Bible-study programs; If people know more, they will act accordingly. Right?
Yet the pandemic, and the subsequent and increasingly divisive behavior of many, have driven me to re-examine that narrative. If our existing discipleship pathway was so effective, why is it that today we see such disunity in the wider church? Why do we see a great dropping off in church attendance and even less regard for Jesus in our communities?
God’s mission is a movement - always has been, always will be. The question is, “Will you join it?"
1.7 million. In these four years from 2021 until 2024, the newly increased goal by Immigration Canada will be the equivalent of Canada’s fourth largest city, after Vancouver and before Calgary.

The season of Lent is an invitation to journey into the wilderness—a place of introspection, reflection, and repentance.
Like Jesus, we need at times to journey into the wilderness with the Lord in order to be prepared for the mission he has called us to. Join me this Lent in listening, praying, repenting, and denying myself, so that I may be filled with joy as I journey on in following Jesus in his mission to this lost world.
If we want to define the mission that God assigned to His Church, we really need to identify what His mission is first. Our mission will then be a more accurate reflection of His own.
