Canadian Baptist of Western Canada



Each year, youth from across Western Canada gather for SERVE, a week-long ministry where between 200 and 300 youth gather to make a difference through community service projects. It is also a week of worship, making new friends, growing in your relationship with God, fun and stepping outside of your comfort zone.


From July 3-9, 2016 we gathered in the beautiful city of Victoria, BC.  Our theme was ‘Be the Light’ based on Matthew 5:14-16:

You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. 

Our keynote speaker was Sid Koop, Executive Director of Truth Matters Ministries, a ministry to youth to awaken them to the truth of Jesus Christ.

Thanks to Emmanuel Baptist Church for hosting this event!
