Global Missions Overview
Westside’s mission is To Make Jesus Known. Jesus calls us to go and make disciples—to reach the ends of the earth for the His glory. We believe that God has called each of us as Christians to be missionaries here in the city of Vancouver, reaching our colleagues, friends, family, and neighbours with the good news of Jesus. God also calls us to the “ends of the earth,” or to global missions. There are many unreached nations around the world that need to hear about Jesus. Westside is committed to helping indigenous organizations in both India and Africa. Our desire is to help train, equip, pray, serve, and give financially to what God is already doing in both these great countries.
India is one of the most unreached countries in the world. With a population of over a billion people, only a fraction have heard the good news of Jesus. God has placed a passion and calling on our hearts to reach North India for His future church. The primary agency that we are doing this through is Child Of Mine.

Africa is a continent of great need, with a vast majority of the world's poverty occurring there. In addition to the physical hunger, there is a deep spiritual hunger within this country. To help fulfill these needs, Westside is committed to working with local African church planters and pastors, specifically in Kenya and Tanzania. Our desire as a church is to play a role in the raising up of godly, biblically trained church leaders by partnering with two African bible school organizations: Hope of the Nations (Tanzania), and Kapsowar School Of Theology (Kenya). We support these two schools by giving financially, praying, and teaching. Click here for more info.
Mexico is a country associated with vacations and all-inclusive resorts, but the great need for the Gospel is often overlooked. While the nation as a whole is close to 95% Catholic, this is often intermingled with various folk beliefs and practices. In the last decade millions have been abandoning the faith disillusioned by how faith bears little connection to the issues of the culture, and the country is in dire need of true unadulterated gospel proclamation. We have partnered with MB Mission and are exploring how we can support the ongoing efforts of local church plants as they seek to proclaim the grace available in Jesus.
