Ministry Location: Montreal, QC
Ministry Focus: Campus Ministry
It was during chapel in Bible college in 2005 when David heard two statistics about Montreal that shaped his desire for ministry; 0.5% evangelical Christians in Quebec, and 150,000 university students in the downtown core. Montreal boasts one of the largest student populations per capita in North America and is home to several post-secondary university and college campuses. After interning for a university church in Montreal for a year, David’s desire to impact the student population in Montreal only grew. During the same season of life, David met and married Jeannie who had a similar desire for student ministry.
David and Jeannie have now lived in Montreal for the past six years where David has been serving Anglophone students at McGill University. But more recently, they have felt God moving them in the direction of serving Francophone students in Quebec. If faith is difficult on Anglophone campuses, it is even more difficult on Francophone campuses (universities and CEGEPs), where there is very little to no gospel presence.
