  • Joy Johnston - Uganda & Northern Québec

    Joy serves as Director for Missions with Pentecostal Assemblies of God Uganda. Her mandate is to further develop the denomination's missions sending—particularly as they take steps towards global missions initiatives. She sensitizes leaders about missions. She equips cross-cultural workers to go. She mobilizes churches to send. The ultimate goal is to add Ugandan workers to the global missions force making Christ known to the least reached—in Africa and beyond. God's passion "that all may hear" shapes and drives her ministry. God marked her with this passion early in her ministry, as she shared the gospel with people who had never heard the name of Jesus. The impact remains fresh.

  • Cal & Chrissy Krahn - Montréal

    With almost 30 years of ministry experience, Cal and Chrissy have often been drawn to those outside the church walls. As Mission Canada urban workers to Montreal, Quebec, they care for those around them who may be lonely, broken, hurting, or in need. This could be through working at a local food bank, sharing a cup of coffee with someone or simply handing out a granola bar to someone who’s hungry. They desire to embody "the Jesus Way" in their community by living their lives based on the example of Jesus; full of generosity, hospitality and love. Mission Canada encourages you to pray for and support this couple as they intentionally go and be among both English and French speaking Canadians, introducing those of all ages to a life-giving relationship with Jesus.

Pierre and Marielle previously served as Director of Program at MET (Missions, Exposure and Training) in Pretoria, South Africa. Their desire is to see Africa become a missions sending continent; sending missionaries within their own boundaries, across the continent and to the uttermost part of the world. The Paradis plan to minister in West Africa and help national churches to improve their mission structures. You can partner with them in the task of raising African missionaries.

  • David Ritz - Montréal

    After interning for a university church in Montreal for a year, David’s desire to impact the student population in Montreal only grew. During the same season of life, David met and married Jeannie who had a similar desire for student ministry.

    David and Jeannie have now lived in Montreal for the past six years where David has been serving Anglophone students at McGill University. But more recently, they have felt God moving them in the direction of serving Francophone students in Quebec. If faith is difficult on Anglophone campuses, it is even more difficult on Francophone campuses (universities and CEGEPs), where there is very little to no gospel presence. 

    Part of David's on campus involvement is through Red Frogs, a support program that provides direct relief from alcohol and drug related issues.
