If Jesus Christ is the lifeblood of Power to Change, our ministries are the heartbeat. Every two weeks we’ll be checking their pulse, sharing blog posts, stories and events from our 10 ministries and humanitarian partner. This is P2C Pulse.

Ministry Updates

  • Our student ministry recently embarked on mission trips over spring break and brought back some great stories! Let’s start in Montreal, where difficult questions opened the door to sharing the gospel. [P2C – Students]

On to Denmark, where many Danes were confronted with existential questions of meaning and spirituality that they had never encountered before and the students on the trip were forever changed. “I knowingly said yes to going to Denmark, yet unknowingly said yes to having my whole life changed in the process.” [P2C – Students]

 

Finally to Norway, where Canadian students helped mobilize students in Oslo to share the gospel and found that Norwegian students were spiritually curious. Be in prayer that an Agapé (Europe’s Power to Change) student group will form in Oslo. [P2C – Students]
