Churches Sponsoring Unity

DSCF3147

Missions Fest exists because missional churches share a vision of unity for the sake of Christ’s mission.

Churches engage Missions Fest corporately in 2 ways: as a “Sponsoring Church” or as a ”Supporting Church”.

Why Sponsor Missions Fest?

The Missions Fest Vancouver (MFV) conference is a lavish gift from The Church to the city: General Admission is FREE. The conference is a world-class event that facilitates thousands of meaningful encounters. Countless people meet Christ and His missional calling in deeper ways during the conference. The shared vision of the 150+ sponsoring churches is “unity in Christ for the sake of Mission.”

Missions Fest Vancouver is the largest annual North American missions conference.  It’s been a gathering of God’s people for the past 33+ years. There is an average aggregated attendance of 35.000 people over the conference weekend. It happens annually during the last weekend of January at the Vancouver Convention Centre (in downtown Vancouver BC).  Over the conference weekend there is a film festival, 100+ seminars, 200+ exhibitors, as well as specific events for youth and young adults.  General admission is FREE.

What Pastors Say about Missions Fest:

2017shannonlachance

Shared experience always seems to be God’s method for spreading the Gospel. Testimonies are a powerful tool, making Missions Fest such an important event. We learn from the practices of fruitful laborers dedicated to the Great Commission, discovering what has worked and what needs our attention.
I am especially excited about this year’s theme, Justice and the Gospel. As I reflect upon on a Missions trip to Africa, I am reminded of how much we need one another; uniting in our God-given strengths to address important issues. Missions Fest is a great opportunity for us to participate in a forum whereby we can respond to the things God lays on our hearts. There is truly no greater task force than when God’s people come together in unity around a common
theme or purpose. I am looking forward to this! – Shannon LaChance, Associate Pastor at Northside Foursquare Church (Coquitlam)

Missions Fest has long been one of our most favorite mission events in our church—we haven’t  missed one! We are so grateful, as not every city in the world is able to hold a Missions Fest  conference. We are truly a blessed city to have you in our midst. Our church will continue to support Missions Fest—you are wonderful and amazing!

Rev. Tom Cheung, Lead Pastor of Port Moody Pacific Grace MB Church

 As an urban church that strongly believes in missions both locally and abroad, The Table is delighted to support Missions Fest. We are looking forward to learning from missionaries and organizations around the world. Being a Mission-minded church focusing on outreach, we are committed to loving God, loving others, and blessing our neighbours. Each individual and each church does this differently, so we are excited to learn and grow by attending and supporting Missions Fest Vancouver. We hope to inspire, equip, and empower our leaders and urban missionaries at the upcoming Missions Fest as well. See you all there!

Anna King, Leadership Development at Table Church (Victoria, BC)
