Our Big Thing

What is Outreach Canada?

I am often asked to describe what Outreach Canada is or what we do. It can be hard to describe, like the engine of a car. Our team is made up of a lot of different parts that work together to accomplish one big thing.

We have five ministry teams: Church in Canada Team, Marketplace Ministry Team, Global Ministries Team, MORE Network Team, and our Administrative Team. We have 83 Team Members, plus an additional 23 international associates. And we have over 100 partnerships with other ministries! 

Our Big Thing

So, you may ask, “What is Outreach Canada's big thing?”

As a team of Canadian missionaries, we help churches and individual Christians understand our times, our culture, and our context so they can adapt to the changing needs of society while staying true to their commitment to God. When Jesus was asked, he said that there are two big things: “Love the Lord your God" and "Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:37-39)

Our Strategy

Our vision is to see lives transformed by the presence of Jesus Christ. By being good and loving neighbors, we introduce Canadians to Jesus and His love for us.

Our strategy is to recognize critical needs and opportunities in our society and respond in ways that are innovative and appropriate. Our ability to rally the Christian community, including churches, ministries and individuals, is key to facilitating cooperative solutions. 

Our Values

Our Core Values include: 

  • Prayer
  • Healthy Churches
  • Equipping for Ministry
  • Partnerships
  • Teamwork
  • Whole Nations
