Ministry Description

Word of Life Canada was first incorporated in 1961. 1964 marked the beginning of Bible Clubs and the hiring of full-time Canadian staff. Today, under the direction of Scott Foreman, over 50 full time missionaries are effectively reaching French and English Canadians with the gospel. Over 50 Bible Clubs exist in the provinces of New Brunswick, New Scotia, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Word of Life Canada owns two camp properties in Quebec and Ontario and also operates a satellite camp program in Manitoba. Each location offers exciting youth camping programs with a full array of summer camps and snow camps, as well as a Bible Institute. In addition, the Quebec property effectively serves as a French Language school for missionaries. Other ministries include the Impact Team, a musical team comprised of seven young men who visit churches, schools, nursing homes and retirement communities using drama, skits, singing and preaching. Sporting events such as Super Bowl (Ontario), Triple Play, and Crazy Kids Day continue to be effective evangelistic tools. Word of Life Canada's goals include expanding the staff to 60 full time missionaries and extending the ministry to public schools and to unreached regions of the country. A radio broadcast is also planned which will address the issues and needs of Canadian youth.


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 US influence and cultures of numerous minorities, make Canada one of the world's most diverse and multicultural nations. Differences in the language, culture, and religion of French Quebec and English Canada, have brought the country close to the point of break up as late as 1995. Religion seems to have lost the interest of many. Today about 12 percent of the population of 30 million admit that they have no religious affiliation (this is 90 percent more than 1981). More than 85 percent of French Canadians claim to be Catholic, but the number is declining.
