Ministry Description

WOL Canada was incorporated in 1961. The early impact on the country began with the introduction of WOL Bible Clubs in the Maritimes in 1964 and the first missionaries were recruited then.
Today, under the experienced leadership of the National Director, Peter Verkaik, over 50 missionaries are effectively reaching French and English Canadians with the Gospel.
The ministry’s developed properties in Quebec and Ontario are perfectly located with easy access to the country's most populated and diverse regions. Each location offers a Bible Institute, and an exciting year-round youth camp program. The Québec property delivers the WOL ministry in french and, in addition, provides a French Language School program to train missionaries heading to francophone countries around the world. The Bible Institute (Parole de Vie) offers college students a unique Immersion Bible Institute opportunity as well!
Each location abounds with effective outreach ministry activities such as: students participate on a Vibrant Team using bubble ball games, skits, testimonies, preaching, testimonies. Surrounding communities and churches are reached through Fall Foliage events for seniors; P31 (event just for young ladies); families through Family Fun Days; teens through large evangelistic events like Folie Lunaire (Montreal).
WOL Canada's national goals are to continue to create new evangelistic initiatives, have both bible institutes operating at 80% capacity and have the Ontario campus focused on growing its impact on the country's largest city of Toronto!


Country Description

Famous for vast natural resources and a wide diversity of mountains, forests, lakes, and prairie grasslands, Canada is the second largest country in the world.
French and British traditions, along with the presses of numerous minorities, make Canada one of the world's most interesting and diverse nations.
Within the country, French Quebec maintains its own language and rich French cultural heritage. Religion seems to have lost the interest of many. More than 85 percent of French Canadians claim to be Catholic. But today the province is predominantly secular.
Nationally only about 12 percent of 36 the million population admit that they have no religious affiliation (up 90 percent more than 1981).
