Mission Trip 2024

JULY 6-14, 2024

We are heading on a mission trip to Winchester, Kentucky this upcoming summer! This mission trip is open to youth entering grade 9 up to age 21. It is a week away that will change your life filled with serving to help repair homes, building relationships with residents and fellow youth from around the U.S. This year's theme, 'Influencer', will help you navigate the many influences in your lives and encourage you to look toward Jesus, the greatest influencer of all time, so you can use your influence to positively change culture!  Based on Romans 12:2 "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind". 

If you have any questions, please contact Amy Vanderwal or Chantelle Eelkema.

All Ontario Youth Convention


May 7th, 2022 at Redeemer University College in Ancaster, ON

10am - 8pm (registration open at 9am)

This year, we invite you to take an honest look at the struggles of the past years, and choose to fix your eyes on Christ for whatever lies ahead, knowing that you’re never alone.

We’re going to do this in large group worship times, through teaching and learning together, and with small group discussion over meals.

We’re also going to have a lot of fun. The “flipping-into-the-ball-pit-rocking-a-bedazzled-t-shirt-with-my-new-best-friends” kind of fun. No more isolation.

HOPE YOUTH budget will cover part of the cost, so you only pay $20!!
(be sure to click 'pay later' when you sign up)

Carpooling is available.
