Edmonton is a beautiful and thriving Canadian city with cool summer temperatures. The people love attending summer festivals and outdoor events. The diverse population is less than 6% evangelical and there is only one Baptist church per 75,000 people. We will help new church plants move their ministry forward and share the Gospel through block parties, service projects, and personal evangelism.
