Join God’s Work In Canada

God has given the Canadian Convention of Southern Baptists a vision of starting 1,000 healthy, reproducing, cooperating churches by the year 2020. There are now only 200 Southern Baptist churches in the entire nation.

The Kansas-Nebraska Convention of Southern Baptists voted to enter a mission partnership with Canada. It focuses on the provinces of Saskatchewan and Manitoba, which are similar to our two states. The partnership consists of:

  • Church planting in Manitoba — There are only two Southern Baptist churches in that province, and they are located in Winnipeg.
  • Planting churches designed to reach students — Southern Baptist campus ministries in Kansas-Nebraska will partner with student ministries in Canada.
  • Encouragement — With only 200 Southern Baptist churches in the entire nation of Canada, the work is often lonely and discouraging.

 


 

A Closer Look at Saskatchewan

The KNCSB partnership with Canada also includes the province of Saskatchewan. Here are some photos from Waskesiu National Park in that province. They were taken by Becky Sowers, a volunteer from Virginia who recently served in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan.

A Closer Look at Manitoba

New Life Sanctuary in Headlingley, Manitoba, (west edge of Winnipeg) is one of only two Canadian Convention of Southern Baptists churches in the province of Winnipeg.

Garden Park Church in the north part of Winnipeg is the other Canadian Convention of Southern Baptists church in Manitoba. It is located in a highly ethnic neighborhood and meets in a storefront next to a restaurant that features East Indian cuisine.
