Initiative 22 Launch This Sunday

It’s barely been a year since we commissioned and sent out the Berniers to church plant in Montreal. God has been doing amazing things in and through Dwight and Jess and in Montreal. Christ really is building his church! God has built a core team of Jesus’ family who are really learning to live as servants and missionaries to Montreal.

This Sunday, September 26 at 6pm, Initiative 22 will launch their Gathered Worship. Let’s pray together for Jesus’ gospel to joyfully and boldly proclaimed as I22 gathers this Sunday. Let’s thank God together for what HE has done and will do to bring many to Jesus in Montreal!
