Serving in Global Engagement
Serve the World
Our Global Engagement Team plans “Discipleship Trips” annually, to lend a helping hand to those serving abroad with us long-term. We’re also involved in local initiatives through our Refugee Lead Team, and our Conversation Circles to inspire newcomers to Canada in improving their English. Our “We Serve Missions” Team prays for missionaries monthly.

Serving on Music and Tech Teams
Cherishing God’s Presence
“A faithful worship leader magnifies the greatness of God in Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit, by skillfully combining God’s Word with music, thereby motivating the gathered church, to proclaim the gospel, to cherish God’s presence, and to live for God’s glory.” – Bob Kauflin
Our Sunday gatherings matter, and each week a small army of music and technical people gather in two cities to practice, laugh, and work together to ensure that the name of Jesus is lifted high in our communities. Our hope is that our songs, scripture, teaching and prayer will spill over into your week, when you need it most. If you’re musical or technical, and interested in joining our team, we’d love to hear from you!

Where Discipleship Happens
Church Life, our ministry to adults, is at the heart of discipleship. We have a wide variety of ministries (Alpha, Life Groups, Life Classes, etc.) with but one mission: to make fully devoted followers of Christ. There are many ways you can get involved depending on your gifting and skill set. Wherever you serve you will be impacting people’s lives while forming meaningful relationships.
