We understand that all Christians are on mission with God to go and make disciples. As we live our daily lives at work, at home and in our neighbourhoods, each believer is to be engaging our friends, neighbours and co-workers in spiritual discussions that ultimately point them to a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. However, some of us are set apart to make the missionary lifestyle our primary vocation.
Mid-term missionaries are often people who are at a life transition point or are taking a significant first step into long-term missions. Mid-Term projects range from 8 weeks to 2 years and should have clearly defined ministry objectives and trip outcomes.
Here is a list and short summary of the mid-term missionaries we support:
My name is Adam Pietrantonio. I'm 26 years old, working part-time and pursuing my Master's of Divinity. I am also volunteering at the University of Guelph with the campus ministry Power to Change. My aim is to gain ministry experience serving international students, equipping me to serve in Japan as a missionary in the next few years.
My name is Sara. I'm a recent graduate of the Arts and Sciences program at the University of Guelph, where I specialized in Agriculture and International Development. This year I am serving with Mennonite Central Committee in India. I'm honoured to be part of MCC's mission "to share God's love and compassion for all in the name of Christ." Through emergency relief programs, sustainable development initiatives, and peace-building processes, we embody a longing "to see communities worldwide in right relationship with God, one another, and creation." Thank you for your support! You're welcome to follow my blog at saraindiablog.wordpress.com or contact me directly at email@example.com.
My name is Lori! I grew up in Mississauga, went to school at the University of Guelph, and graduated with a B.Sc in Psychology last year. I got involved with Church of the City in my last year of school and am thankful to have been ministered to by this fellowship. I currently work with an organization called Power to Change-Students in a closed country called East Asia. I co-lead a team of other missionaries where we work on a few university campuses, engaging students from unreached people groups in spiritual and gospel conversations. We are excited about the work that God is doing here and are blessed to have the opportunity to share the gospel in an area with many unreached people groups. If you'd like to hear more about the work that we're doing or would like to contact me personally, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
My name is Alexis. I am currently in my second year of a two year internship with Power to Change-Students, at McMaster University. God put ministry on my heart as a student at the University of Guelph, where I realized more deeply the need for equipped and engaged Christians to bring the gospel to the campus—a mission field where many students are lost and incredibly desperate for a gospel, and where those who know the gospel have a deep need for discipleship. I got involved with Church of the City going into my 3rd year of University. Doing life with this church and especially my missional community has changed how I do ministry, how I relate to others and most importantly, how I view God. Thank you so much for your support; it means the world to me and I have tangibly seen God at work because of it. If you would like to hear more about my ministry, I would love to share about the wonderful ways God has been working on campus! You can email me at email@example.com
