What comes to mind when you think of Vancouver? Olympics... Hockey... Mountains... Ocean... Lots of wealth... Lots of poverty... Multicultural? If you think of any of these things, you're right. And in the midst of it all, GOD IS AT WORK. People are experiencing God’s love and committing to live for Him. Many are hearing God’s call to be a missional presence in the city. Churches are being planted. Lives are being transformed.
SOAR Vancouver is a 10-day discipleship training and mission program where teams from across North America are invited to come to train, worship, serve, eat, live, and process together. Each team will be paired with a MB church in Vancouver to serve with them as they reach out to their neighbors. Join us this summer as we grow in intimacy with Jesus, glimpse God’s heart for Vancouver, and engage in His mission. You’ll be amazed at how much God can do in and through you in 10 days.
Jesus taught me that when you say yes to him, he will do amazing things.SOAR Vancouver Participant, 2012
