Get Involved

churchplanting_getinvolvedIf God has gifted you with compassion for the those who do not yet know Christ, a willingness to share the gospel in word and deed, and a desire to depend more fully on Him, the Canadian Baptist church planting ministry might be for you! Want to get involved? Here’s how:


Our new church plants need your prayer support. They are in the midst of discerning who God has called them to be. Members are learning to love and care for each other. They are sorting out organizational issues such as when and where they will worship, who will teach Sunday School, and what ministries they can offer the local community. They have many practical and financial needs that must be met to become sustainable. They need to know they belong to a caring Christian community. To learn more about specific prayer needs for each church plant, check out the church plant profiles. Prayer requests can be found at the end of each profile, and on our Church Planting Prayer page.

Help Out

Most new churches are in great need of volunteers. If there is a new church plant near you, perhaps you could volunteer to lead worship, teach Sunday School, lead Bible studies or offer hospitality. Perhaps you have equipment you could donate or space you could offer. Contact a local church plant to volunteer your skills and time. Or, approach your church board about taking on a Venture Partnership.

Start a New Church Plant

God may be calling you to start a new church. If you are interested in leading a church plant, being assessed and trained to be a church planter, or being part of a new church planting effort, contact Shannon Youell, the Director of Church Planting, at or 250.216.6332.
