The Jesus Network's Christmas Challenge is the opportunity to have an 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.
Each day's schedule is balanced with classroom learning on Islam in the morning and a neighbourhood visitation in the afternoon. 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.
