We are a ministry that is continually seeking to serve and be obedient to God's will while He has called us to a vision of connecting people in coastal British Columbia communities with God's love. We seek to do this by carrying out a mission of working together with people from all across North America, of all ages, to make God's love in Christ known! (or what's on our ABOUT web page)

We provide groups and individuals from across North America the opportunity to volunteer by joining us as we share God's love in remote, coastal First Nation communities in British Columbia. We work together with these community leaders and individuals to identify the specific personal, social and spiritual needs of each of their communities to offer appropriate programs and outreach for the children, youth and families to come together. And thereby to learn of and grow in God's amazing love.

We not only see our ministry as solely to the communities we go, but also to our donors. We are streamlining our application and training processes, as well as looking towards changing our model of how teams come for mission trips. We are changing some of our funding models to create more financial sustainability, which will enable us to increase our staff and our ministries in four (4) of the coastal communities - Klemtu, Kingcome, Ehattesah and Kyuquot. Not only are these communities asking us to visit more frequently and for longer durations, but other communities are asking us to include them on ours visits. Our goal is to be able to go to these communities at least three (3) times per year. We are also exploring ways to increase donor care and share with our donors that they are partners in our ministry.
