Mission Opportunities

Overview

Although the PAOC has over 1,100 local churches spread across the nation, there exists a growing missional need in Canada. Mission Canada, together with PAOC District leadership, is actively pursuing new strategies and initiatives to address this need by facilitating the calling and deploying of individuals who would envision themselves as being Missionaries to Canada.

Worker Requirements

Individuals must be a representative of Jesus Christ and His Kingdom. Mission Canada expects all missionary appointees to demonstrate to the best of their ability, by word and action, a lifestyle that is consistent with the principles of integrity and purity found in scripture. A missionary agrees to abide by the Minister’s Code of Ethics and the PAOC Statement of Fundamental and Essential Truths.

Applicants must be Canadian citizens or have Canadian residency.

Applicants must have or be eligible for credentials with The Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada.

Mission Canada workers are those intentionally sent to Canada’s neediest and least reached regions, aligning with one or more of the priority areas of focus for Mission Canada. Individuals must have a passion for and experience in working with a particular Mission Canada priority group or georgraphical areas where need and priority have been identified.

Mission Canada workers are responsible to raise the necessary financial support for their missions efforts and project funds. As well, representing the PAOC’s Mission Canada department, they are catalysts in motivating individuals and churches for missions nationally.

Opportunities in Canada

As the PAOC’s National Mission Agency, Mission Canada is always looking for individuals or couples who will respond to the Call of God on their lives to go into unreached areas to create new, and often unique, ministries which augment the good work of the PAOC’s local churches. These Mission Canada missionaries, or “workers” as they are often called, are placed in gaps in our nation where the gospel is not yet adequately represented. They can be found in urban neighbourhoods, among Canada’s children and youth, on post-secondary campuses, in northern communities, or amongst those who are Francophone or live in the Province of Quebec. Workers are often known to be pioneers, risk takers, innovators, entrepreneurs, and servants. They are called and they are sent to Canada’s neediest and least reached regions to serve people who are far from God and His reconciling love.  Our family of Mission Canada workers is growing. Consider what unique calling you may have and how it may align with the priorities that Mission Canada is focusing on.
