CANADA

Canada is a huge land mass with extreme diversity in language, lifestyle and allegiances amongst its 36 million residents.

About

Although certain areas within the country have seen great progress in terms of the gospel, much of the country is still in great need of hearing the good news for the first time, especially in French Québec and among the various First Nations people groups.

Though the challenges in Canada are many for church planting, the Lord is accomplishing the work that he said he would do. He indeed is building his Church! It is our great opportunity to partner with him at this time as he awakens spiritual hearts to his beauty and value. We pray that the Lord would ignite a movement of disciples worshipping Jesus, which will result in church planting.

As Acts 29 Canada commences, we have a handful of churches that desire to work together with one another within our distinctive Canadian culture and see the gospel bring pervasive and eternal hope throughout our land. These churches also long to contribute deeply to the global work transpiring throughout the Acts 29 family.

We hope that Acts 29 Canada can be an agent of instigation for church planting throughout this country. We hope to partner with already existing networks and denominations, in order to have maximum impact for the kingdom throughout the country. Our great expectation is that the Lord would have dominion from sea to sea.
