Jesus' mission is our mission: to go and make disciples and reach the ends of the earth for His glory, making His name known.
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.
But God also calls us to reach all nations, or to global missions. There are many unreached nations around the world that need to hear about Jesus. Westside is committed to partnering with international organizations that equip and serve communities. We partner through prayer and short-term missions.
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. Child of Mine is an agency that works in North India to build and strengthen the church while providing for people's physical and daily needs. More information about Child of Mine and their monthly sponsorship program is located here.
Mexico is often associated with sunny beach vacations, but the great need for the Gospel is often overlooked. While the nation is close to 95% Catholic, this is often mixed with various folk beliefs and practices. In the last decade, millions have been abandoning the faith, disillusioned by how the expression of faith bears little connection to the issues of the culture. Westside has partnered with Multiply, the mission branch of the MB Church in North America, to support their work in Guadalajara, Mexico.
In addition to the physical need, there is a deep spiritual need within Tanzania. Westside has partnered with Hope of the Nations over the years, who are committed to working with local Tanzanian church planters and pastors. Their desire is to raise-up Godly, biblically trained church leaders. More information on their work is located here.
