Partnering for the Kingdom

"One Hope Canada’s partnership with the AGC empowers the mission to help community missionaries reach the least opportunity areas of Canada through community-based ministries."

January 14, 2019

Welcome. I’m so glad you’re here! We often use these words to greet guests or family members to our home. The words express a genuine joy at seeing family and friends. In the same way, I used these words to welcome each One Hope Canada church that recently joined the Associated Gospel Churches.

Strategic ministry partnerships are valuable to the AGC. Our partnership with One Hope Canada has been a blessing as we have welcomed four churches into the AGC family and anticipate eight more in the near future. The AGC’s vision is to be a movement of healthy, reproducing churches.

AGC sees reproduction in several ways—in new church plants, daughter works from existing churches, multi-site churches, or partnerships with like-minded ministries such as One Hope...

Ministry Happens Year Round

"7,077 children and youth will be involved in discipleship ministries"

We need your help

Simple Acts of Love

"The camper’s mom was deeply moved that her son was flourishing as a part of our camp family."

July 18, 2018

Our junior high camp program gives campers the opportunity to go mountain biking on trails in the adjacent Pigeon Lake Provincial Park. The trails offer engaging rides for most skill levels. Mountain biking is often the highlight of each camper’s week.
This summer we had a camper who had never ridden a bike. His cabin leader, aided by the camp speaker and a few others, took time throughout the week to teach this young man. These staff members were often seen running beside the bike, keeping him balanced as he practiced.
The cooks, watching from a kitchen window, commented excitedly on his progress.
What a wonderful thing to see how impactful the teaching and personal investment were in this boy’s life.
The camper’s mom was deeply moved when she heard what happened and expressed profound gratitude that her son was flourishing in our camp family. She later shared a video of him riding a...
