  • ·       2013 Vancouver Vision Tours – Pray for future tour on September 16-18 (sign-up deadline -Aug. 27). There will also be a Tour in November, final date pending. We currently have 103 potential Vision Tour participants on the Vision Tour E-mail list.  
  • ·        Origin Church, Vancouver and International Student Ministry, University of British Columbia - Pray for Craig O’Brien, Peter Yoon, and Suzanne Perry who serve at the University of British Columbia, where 8500 International Students represent the largest international population of any university in North America.  Two-thirds of the 45,000 student-body are classified as second generation (born in Canada but parents born outside of Canada). Fifty-seven percent of the population on the UBC peninsula claim to be Atheist.

  • ·       Church Planters and Other Ministers’ Housing Expenses – Pray for housing expenses for those who serve in metro Vancouver and on Vancouver Island.  The average family spends 60% of their income on housing.  The average rental expense is $2 per square foot.  One minister lives in a 650 foot apartment for $1300 per month. Affordable housing purchase begins from $450 to $500 per square foot. Because churches are new, young and un-trained, church planters and other ministers must raise all or most of their salary outside of their church/ministry.  Ministry expenses likewise must be raised outside of church giving. If you, your church, or association would like to be a financial partner, let me know and I will connect you.
