About Calgary

Home to world-class winter sports venues and a world-famous rodeo, Calgary is one of Canada’s largest cities. With a thriving oil industry and myriad business opportunities, the metro area is currently home to 1.4 million people. As that number continues to grow, the need for Christ grows with it. Only 5.2 percent of the people identify themselves as followers of Jesus. Churches and missionaries are working on ways to tell more people about the good news of the Gospel, and they need your help.

Why serve in Calgary?

%

Evangelical Christians

Only 5.2 percent of its 1.4 million inhabitants claim to believe in Jesus Christ. And currently there is only one Canadian National Baptist Convention (CNBC) church for every 46,365 people.

Local Missionaries

“We’re really asking God for an indigenous movement,” said Bob Shelton, the area’s Send City missionary. “This means getting local leaders to own the strategy and to develop leaders for future plants. But we also want non-local leaders to come and set their hearts on Canada.”

Voted World's Cleanest City

Calgary was voted the world’s cleanest city and diverts 80% of its waste away from landfills.
