Annual Impact Report 2022
The same passion that inspired One Hope Canada founder J. Lloyd Hunter still drives us today—to share the good news of Jesus with children, youth, and families. Our teams bring the hope of Christ to thousands of people each year through Bible camps, community ministries, digital discipleship, and training opportunties.

Your support helps keep costs low so more children and youth have the opportunity to hear the good news of Jesus!
Last year, our ministry points were fully open for summer overnight camping or day camp. In July and August 2022 more than 19.000 boys and girls had the opportunity to hear the good news about Jesus. More than half came from homes that know little about Jesus, the Bible, or true Christianity. Thanks to your generosity, our frontline teams were ready for ministry.
“Last summer, we saw God do amazing things. Campers asked deep questions about faith, sharing how God met them in their hurts and loneliness. Thirty-four of our campers gave their lives to Christ.”

“It is my prayer that the twenty-three girls who attend our clubs each week will have open hearts to the Gospel and will commit to living for Christ. I am always very encouraged to see these girls grow up and continue in their faith.”
