Vancouver is a growing international city with about 2.3 million people in the greater Vancouver area. Less than half of Vancouver’s population speaks English as their first language, making it a gateway city to the world.
With the beautiful scenery and ideal summer climate, Vancouver is a popular tourist destination for many in our church. But 96% of the residents do not know Jesus Christ and we are committed to help reach this city.
We partner with Church on the Rock, a new church plant in the suburb of Pitt Meadows. This church is not only committed to reaching its community for Christ, but seeks to plant new churches in surrounding areas.
Our partnership with Church on the Rock consists of praying, paying, and playing.
We communicate regularly with their pastor, Josh Arrington, and have a good grasp on how to pray for the needs of the church as they move forward in their community. If you would like to know how to pray for Church on the Rock, you can find the information on our weekly prayer list.
We also send a monthly gift to Church on the Rock to help them in their ministry. Vancouver is the most expensive city in North America to live in and every thing we give helps. Right now they are raising $400,000 to buy a duplex that will serve as a residence for Josh Arrington and his family on one side, while the other side would be used for office space and house mission teams. If you would like to specify a donation for Church on the Rock, please go to our online giving page. Make sure and specify missions and write “Church on the Rock” in the notes box.
Every year we send about three teams to Church on the Rock to help them in the ministry. We usually take one in the spring, one in the early summer, and another in the fall. Families, couples, and individuals of all ages are encouraged to spend time in Vancouver. We do many different things from setting up for festivals to teaching adults and children. If you are interested in one of our trips to Vancouver, please email Caleb or call the church office.
