One Week Outreach Program
The Jesus Network's Unreached Challenge is the opportunity to have a one-week evangelism training experience in the heart of the largest, most diverse and urbanized city in Canada. You'll be trained to share your faith clearly, confidently and cross-culturally with practical tools.
- Experience fellowship on a missions team
- Study the world religions of Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Catholicism, Nominal Christianity, and Secular Humanism, and learn to share your faith with their followers
- Visit a Muslim mosque, Hindu and Buddhist temples, and a Catholic church
Each day's schedule is balanced with classroom learning on a world religion (e.g. Islam) in the morning, a visit to a religious site (e.g. a mosque) in the afternoon, and a neighbourhood visitation in the evening. You'll learn by doing. Lessons and visits will be led by local teachers who are well-known by the different faith communities of Toronto.
Our goal is to reach people by learning about their worldviews, listening, serving, and sharing the Good News of salvation in Jesus and how he has changed our lives.
We Challenge team members to make evangelism your lifestyle. We Challenge Canadian believers to move out of their comfort zones and become a missionary for a week, without needing a passport or possibly even a ticket.

Toronto's weather can vary from year to year, although winter temperatures are generally higher than most Canadian cities. However, the humidity of the surrounding Great Lakes creates a "damp cold" that "feels" colder than a dry cold of the same temperature.
