Reaching 20,000 international students on 6 university campuses with unconditional friendship - this is what we do. As the Vancovuer CIty Director my job spans all our work in Vancouver, reaching and ministering to internationals and raising up churches to join the mission.
Vancouver is a premier destination for international students. Yet as the students come for our quality programs, beautiful scenery and temperate weather, we see a bigger picture of God drawing people to himself. Many of the students arriving have never known a Christian before - our goal is to show them true Christianity.
"...he (God) marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us." Acts 17:26-27
Through our programs offering unconditional friendship to all students we aim to meet the felt needs of the students, while sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ as we do it. However we are not only reaching international students, our mission is to empower them to send them back to their homelands to impact the world for Christ.
