Servant Life partners with the International Mission Board, NAMB, and the Fellowship Network of Churches to serve with church plants in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). Teams will be partnered with a local Baptist church for the week to help engage nearby communities through university campus outreach, camps, community events, and door-to-door ministry. Toronto has become one of the most multicultural cities in the world and continues to become increasingly post-Christian, creating a huge need for Christian influence and ministry. 97% of the nearly 8 million population in the GTA are lost and do not know Jesus Christ as Lord. Since these churches operate in a culture that is not generally inclined toward Christian teachings, churches must be very strategic to utilize teams well and engage their communities with the gospel. Servant Life is thrilled for this opportunity to do ministry amongst many different people groups and work alongside local churches to proclaim the gospel of Christ.

What will my team be doing? 

Groups will focus on ministry to youth, children, and families to help church plants connect to new people in their communities. Part of your ministry could include day camps, block parties, or VBS-type ministry, while you may also spend significant time doing door-to-door ministry and "surveying"-- a huge asset to help these church planters know which homes and families they need to follow up with. The local ministry team in Toronto is very strategic in all of their ministry efforts and will want to help equip your team with evangelism tools and resources to make sure you are ready to share the good news of Christ (this training has been a highlight for many of our teams). In addition, our church plants work on the University of Toronto Scarborough campus where groups can help engage with campus events, outreach, and more. Servant Life teams typically stay in apartment-style or townhome-style suite setups on university campuses, or hotels. Sometime during your trip, you'll have a day to explore the city of Toronto. Or, if you'd like to make the trek to nearby Niagara Falls, you'll have the opportunity to do that as well.

What does my cost include?

  • Housing. You will be staying on a university campus in apartment or suite style lodging, or in a hotel.

  • Supplemental Traveler's Insurance. In the event of a medical emergency, you'll be covered with an international policy!

  • T-Shirt. Every participant gets an awesome mission trip t-shirt.

  • Pre-Trip Training Material. We provide training sessions, trip overview documents, assistance from our team of mission trip experts, and communication with in-country missionaries to make sure your group is fully prepared for your trip.

  • Pre, During, and Post-trip Devotionals. This 4-week printed missions journal will help every team member grow and encounter Christ.

  • * Meals are not included in the base cost. Many teams do sack lunches on ministry days and a variety of things for dinner (ranging from pizza to fast food to sit down restaurants to frozen meals). Our partner churches in Toronto will be able to recommend some great local options. Meal plans are available from the university where you will be lodging if you would like to include that in your registration.

  • * In-country transportation is not included. Your group will be responsible for your own transportation once in Toronto. Teams usually rent vans or cars, and we can assist you in that rental process.

  • (Note: Most of our international trips do include the cost of your meals and transportation; Toronto is an exception. If you're looking for a trip where these are included, check out Guatemala, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Bahamas, Peru, Bulgaria, UK, Spain, Kenya, or others).
     

Airfare is not included in the trip cost, but will be taken care of by Servant Life's travel agent who gets humanitarian rates and often free baggage. You may book on your own if you prefer to do so, but we ask to approve the itinerary first.
