International Mission Partnerships
Don and Elizabeth Kantel, Developing World Partnerships
Don and Elizabeth have developed what is called the “Pemba model” of village transformation. It is an incredible, wholistic approach to advancing the kingdom of God including church planting, the provision of clean water, agricultural development and much more! We have been honoured to partner with their work in Mozambique for many years.

Luvuno in Kenya
Our church partners with Compassion Canada for occasional events, and a number of members in our congregation sponsor children through Compassion.
OVC has also been sponsoring a child through Compassion for the last 10 years. Her name is Luvuno, and she lives in Kenya. She has recently graduated from the Compassion program and we will be receiving a new sponsor child soon.
You can read her latest letter to us here.

Operation Christmas Child
Every year around Christmas time, we participate in Operation Christmas Child. Samaritan's Purse is an international aid organization that organizes this annual gift-giving mission. Members of the church purchase gifts to fill shoeboxes for children in need around the world. These gifts are delivered with the gospel message, and help to demonstrate God's love in a tangible way.
