True North

Season: Summer 2024 (not published)

Date: June 7 - Aug. 7, 2024

Description: Proclaim the gospel to North African and Middle Eastern (NAME) immigrants and refugees in one of the most diverse cities in North America. These newcomers arrive from countries that are often closed off to the gospel. Now they live in a city where they have freedom to genuinely search for truth. Their experience of war and hardship often leaves them seeking answers that we know can only be found in Jesus. We’re looking for outgoing and relational people who have a passion for taking the gospel to people from diverse backgrounds. You will seek to meet NAME peoples through a variety of entry and evangelism strategies including meeting people in parks, through pick-up sports, English conversation clubs, ethnographic research, joining local clubs, or through intentional prayer walking.
