Volunteer with Us

Make a difference through volunteering.

At Missions Fest we rely on the support of hundreds of volunteers to operate through the year and particularly at the conference. There are lots of positions with different skill levels (See below). We have a place for everyone.

Groups: Our volunteer sign-up system allows you to sign up a group. This is a great opportunity for homegroups, Bible study groups or mission committees to serve the Church and the city. If you prefer you can send us a list of your group members. Just identify the contact person, the area in which you’d like to serve, date/time, and include the names and email addresses of each volunteer. This information can be forwarded to the office at: office@missionsfestvancouver.ca
