We think it's pretty cool how God intertwines peoples' lives together and how he is in the details of absolutely everything. We've gotten to watch God raise up church planters from Pastor Aaron's hometown of Lakeland, Florida and send them to Calgary, Alberta to plant Connect Church. We were excited to partner with Pastor Aaron's long-time friends and help them launch their church in 2016. From the very beginning, Connect Church has been extremely intentional about forming relationships with their community and our mission team experiences that firsthand each time we visit. Connect Church has seen great success in Calgary and continues to expand beyond our imagination. When we take teams to partner with Connect Church, we can count on serving the community, inviting people to church, and being extra hands at Connect's church services.
Our partnership with Connect Church also led us to partner with the Ney Family of Vertical Church in Pincher Creek, Alberta. We go there at the end of each summer to put on Vacation Bible School for kids in their community. VBS not only offers these children a few days out of the week to hear about God (maybe even for the first time ever) and his love, but it also gets new families into the doors of Vertical Church to be ministered to and discipled.
Please feel free to email our GO Canada partnership coordinator if you have any questions about participating.
