Dates and Registration

June 15–22, 2024

20 available spots

Québec is one of the ten provinces and three territories that make up the country of Canada. Walking through downtown Montréal feels like being transported to Western Europe. Once known as the city of a thousand bell towers inviting people to church, it’s now a city of four million people where less than 3% identify as evangelical Christians, and less than 1% for those under 25. Life in Montréal is similar to other urban environments, and the French value of la joie de vivre, the joy of living, drives many of those who call the French-speaking province of Québec home. But despite this drive for pleasure, there seems to be a greater sense of emptiness and a deep desire for something more.

The Montréal City Team has two major ministry focuses: outreach to women and youth and church training initiatives. One of our leaders works with pregnancy centers and a transitional home for young girls and women with unplanned pregnancies. The team is deeply involved in youth outreach through partnership with local churches, speaking on anti-human trafficking, mental health, pornography and other topics that impact the city’s youth. They coordinate a network of churches so that all are equally equipped to disciple the next generation of disciplemakers, meeting twice a week for discipleship and ministry opportunities.
