Christian Missions in and from Canada: Spreading the Gospel to the Ends of the Earth

Missions in and from Canada

Christian missions are a fundamental part of the Church’s mission to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. But what are Christian missions? Simply put, they are the efforts of Christians to spread the Good news of Jesus Christ to people who have not heard it before, whether in their own country or abroad. These efforts include preaching, evangelism, discipleship, humanitarian aid, and other forms of outreach.

Where are Christian missionaries needed most?

There are many places around the world where the gospel has not yet been preached, and the need for missionaries is great. Some of the areas with the least access to the gospel include the 10/40 Window, which spans from North Africa to East Asia, as well as parts of the Middle East, Central Asia, and Southeast Asia.

Why is missions important in the Church?

Christian missions are essential to the Church because they reflect the heart of God for all people. The Great Commission calls us to make disciples of all nations, and missions help us fulfill that calling. Additionally, missions help us grow in our faith as we step out of our comfort zones, rely on God’s provision, and see His power at work in the lives of others.

Canada has a rich history of sending missionaries around the world, and there are many mission agencies based in Canada that are doing important work both at home and abroad.

Send International is a global community of goers and senders bringing gospel transformation to unreached people groups around the world. SIM is another agency committed to seeing a witness to Christ’s love where He is least known, and to establishing Christ-centred churches among all peoples. Finally, Operation Mobilization in Canada is committed to seeing a community of Jesus followers within reach of every person in the world, through evangelism, discipleship, and other forms of outreach.

Should I become a missionary?

The decision to become a missionary is a personal one, and it should be made prayerfully and with guidance from the Holy Spirit. If you feel that God is calling you to this kind of work, then it is important to seek out opportunities to serve, to get training and support, and to develop the skills and gifts that will help you be effective in your mission.

Should I go on a mission trip?

Mission trips can be a great way to serve others, grow in your faith, and experience different cultures. However, it is important to go on a mission trip with the right motives, and to be prepared to work hard, adapt to new environments, and be flexible. It is also important to partner with a reputable mission agency and to follow their guidelines and protocols for safety and effectiveness.

We have also listed three other important questions to ask when considering a missions trip.

Christian missions have been a vital aspect of the Church’s mission to bring the Good News to all corners of the world. Canada, as a country, has been actively involved in sending missionaries and supporting mission agencies to carry out this mission. Envision Canada, Send International, SIM, and OM in Canada are just a few examples of the mission agencies that are making a difference in the lives of people across the globe. As Christians, we are called to be a part of this mission, whether by going as missionaries, supporting those who go, or praying for the work being done. Let us continue to support and encourage each other in this important work, trusting that God is at work in and through us to bring about His purposes in the world.
