Missions & Outreach

The Missions and Outreach Team of Abundant Life Baptist Church is a direct response to the command of Christ “to make disciples of all nations” (Mt. 28:19) and the promise of Christ, “you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8).
Therefore, because we believe that the mission mandate excludes no  follower of Christ, we endeavour in the power of the Holy Spirit to love the Lord our God, benefit our neighbours with Christ’s love, whether spiritual or physical, and do all we can to urge people everywhere to become worshipers of Jesus Christ.

Danny MacKay

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.

As a wild youth, he was radically saved when he met Christ at 17. While on the run in a stolen car, he stumbled upon a book that introduced him to the Savior. Since then his journey through ministry has included 7 years of camp ministry, 10 years as a worship leader in 3 countries, 3 years as a Youth Pastor of an 850 student school, 4 years as a national spokesman for World Vision, and 8 years as a global missionary with I Am Second.

Now having been called to Equip Canada, his vision is to see a generation mobilized to take the gospel where it has not been, both locally and globally.

Danny is a sought after speaker at all kinds of events, as well as makes regular appearances on radio and television. He speaks to all ages and inspires them to get involved in building God’s kingdom.

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.
