Mission Canada is excited to announce a
brand new reach into Quebec – to the film and entertainment industry!
Jamie Rauch, through his Mission Canada
worker role, has now taken LIGHT IN FILM to urban Montreal. Light In Film began in downtown Vancouver. It was a dream which was set in
motion two years ago when Jamie joined Mission Canada as an urban worker to the
film and entertainment industry in Canada. What began in Vancouver as
monthly meetings, has since moved to bi-monthly and even more recently, weekly
gatherings. Known as “The Underground”, every Wednesday evening a
large group of actors, models, producers and directors meet in a coffee shop,
after hours, to hear God’s Word and discover the True meaning of hope for daily
living. Praying together and being accountable in faith and action to one
another is key to every meeting. A three-month “Underground”
experiment took Light In Film into Langley BC in the Spring of 2016, reaching
those in the industry who work outside of the Vancouver urban core.
Light In Film Montreal kicked off with
its first meeting on July 28, 2016, and is scheduled for monthly meetings the
last Thursday of each month moving forward. Jamie has gathered a team of
people on the ground in Montreal to help to make this happen. Locations
are not announced publicly as “The Underground” is intentionally meant to be a
“by invitation only” opportunity for those in the film and entertainment
industry. Their lives are often spent in the lights so private events
allow those in this line of work to just be real and unguarded, in a
comfortable environment where they are free to listen, ask questions, respond
if they so desire, and not feel pressured.
Jamie is thankful to God for the doors
being opened, as he is faithful to call people to a place of hope and purpose
found only in a relationship with Christ. This missional endeavour needs
your daily prayer support. Also, we would encourage you to come on board
financially in support of what we are doing to make a difference in the film and
entertainment industry in Canada. You can give at https://paoc.org/donate/jamierauch.
Watch the Light In Film video on this link as well. Your partnership in
helping us reach our fellow Canadians who are influencing our entertainment
industry daily is significant. You can be part of bringing Jesus to them!
Thank you for considering a partnership with us. We promise to provide you with
updates on what is happening and where. Right now we can tell you that
Jesus is being made famous in urban Vancouver and now in Montreal, as people
are hearing God’s Word, choosing to follow Jesus, and committing to being
disciple. Statistics would tell us that Sunday morning attendance in Protestant
evangelical churches in Quebec is less than 1% of the province’s
population. But, we can tell you… God is at work in Canada and we are
seeing it happen through Light In Film!
