Missions & Outreach

Abundant Life  loves Jesus and his command “to make disciples [followers of Jesus] of all nations” (Matthew 28:19). We want to be, “my [Jesus’] witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8).
We believe that the mission includes every  follower of Christ. it is our desire to holistically benefit our neighbours with Christ’s love and do all we can to help all people everywhere to become worshipers of Jesus Christ.

Danny MacKay – Any place (literally) in Canada and around the world

Vision: To see a generation mobilized globally, taking the Gospel to where it has not been, locally and globally.

Danny’s message inspires people to be passionate about Christ and the call to build His kingdom. Taking the gospel to some of the most unreached parts of the world is at the heart of his work. Whether unsaved, seeking, or believers looking for the next level, Danny’s speaking has something for them all. Combining humor and depth, his ability to bring Scripture to life moves listeners to a deeper love for God and a commitment to reach the world around them.

He has a unique approach to inspiring and training people in simple, biblical, and repeatable tools to share the gospel and regularly takes teams to areas where the gospel has not yet been and gets others involved in hands on church planting.

Caleb and Raquel Enns – Northern Thailand

And we believe the Gospel needs to be preached to all the nations of the world!  So we’re moving to Northern Thailand in 2021 to be part of a long term church planting team among the Shan people with SEND International.

Right now the Shan people are considered unreached and unengaged with a less than 0.2% Christian population.  So the need for the church to be established is huge!  Our dream is to see the Shan people transformed by Jesus, and we desire to be used by God to raise up leaders who will disciple their own people.
