We are looking for someone who is outgoing and can relate to a variety of people. Someone who has a missional outlook and a servant’s heart. We are willing to look outside the box in the way that we do church, as long as it includes following Jesus and his teachings.

One City, One Message: Welcoming the Stranger

This Sunday (June 11th) churches all over Vancouver are going to be preaching and talking about the theme of welcoming the stranger, based on Matthew 25:35 -- "I was a stranger and you invited me in." What does it mean to truly and faith-fully welcome people (and be welcomed) in a city like Vancouver that can often feel lonely and isolated. Come join us at 10am this Sunday as we hear from Aften & Greg Thiessen about this important topic! \
