MISSION CANADA CAMPUS WORKER
Ministry Location: Red River College, Winnipeg, MB
Ministry Focus: Campus Ministry
Lance is responding to the call of God on his life and is engaging post-secondary students at Red River College in Winnipeg. His desire to follow the Lord's leading to impact a secular culture is what both excited and challenges him in his day to day work. "Campus ministry runs deep in my heart and I love being among students."
Red River College is home to an influx of international students who come ready to not only study, but to absorb our unique Canadian culture. With Lance being a presence on campus, new international students have the opportunity to engage him as a Christian campus worker -- possibly the first Christian many of them will meet. Lance works hard to ensure that their first encounter with a Christ-follower is a good one. He loves putting a Bible in their hands, knowing that it can bring life-change. Hearing Lance's personal story of his encounter with Christ and how God dramatically drew him back and changed his heart and purpose for living is one that God is using to reach students. He knows first-hand what it means to be restored, redeemed and ready to fulfill God's purpose.
The on-campus ministry is known as “Segue”, and it operates with a three-prong focus:
- To transition students well
- To act on issues of social justice
- To create a faith community on campus.
The gospel, and our purpose on this campus, is to love and serve everyone, showing Christ in all we do.
