Ministry Location: Montreal, QC
Ministry Focus: Urban Ministry
With almost 30 years of ministry experience, Cal and Chrissy Krahn have often been drawn to those outside of the church walls. As urban workers with Mission Canada, based in Montreal, Quebec, they care for those around them who are lonely, hurting, or in need of a friend. This can be through involvement at the local food bank, sharing a meal or a coffee with someone, connecting newcomers to Canada with helpful resources, or simply giving a granola bar to a person who’s hungry.
In a province where less than 1% of the population attend an evangelical service on a Sunday morning, and where many do not trust religion or have been hurt, Cal and Chrissy desire to embody "the Jesus way" by living their lives based on the example of Christ - full of generosity, hospitality and love.
In the words of Loren Cunningham, founder of Youth With A Mission (YWAM), "When you take up residence among them, you have an opportunity to do things for transforming that community and those people not only spiritually, but it will change their lives economically, socially, and educationally, and all the things that follow. YOU can make a difference in the world.”
And, in the words of Matthew, an early follower of Christ, “Keep an open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:16 - The Message)
The Krahn's welcome your prayer and financial support as they intentionally have gone to be among both English and French speaking Canadians, reaching the 'gaps' in Quebec. Perhaps you would be interested in being part of a team or taking a short term mission team to Quebec to share the gospel in real and practical ways. If so, email Chrissy at firstname.lastname@example.org and express your interest. She'd love to discuss the possibilities with you! Cal & Chrissy can help you be a "difference maker" in the province of Quebec!
Cal and Chrissy are with Mission Canada…because we must!
