We pray that these four stories about disciple-making & disciple multiplication (from Simply Mobilizing Canada) encourage your heart and inspire you to action!
Outreach Canada's partnership in Burundi is made possible by dedicated Burundian professionals who combine their skills and their faith to serve the practical needs of their country. Here is Jean de Dieu's story...
Outreach Canada is part of a larger global story!
Outreach Canada was one of the original founding members in the OC Global Alliance (OCGA). Today, the OC Global Alliance has 15 Mobilization Centres around the world - one of which is Outreach Canada!
Looking back to our roots, Craig shares the story of the birth of the OCGA, as well as the newest development for the OC Global Alliance: the new Global Collaboration Hub! This is the first article in a mini-series on the OC Global Alliance (OCGA).
Outreach Canada’s work in Burundi, East Africa, is made possible by our official partnership with Partners Trust International Church. We have titled our partnership, Rethink Development, and have had a particular focus on building the capacity of Christians involved in community development work.
Canadians experience great freedom of religion compared to so many places in the world. In fact, it is hard for us to think that our brothers and sisters in Christ in other parts of the world are under attack. Churches meet in hiding, believers pray and worship in private, and many live in constant fear of arrest, beatings, or even execution.
Several years ago, one of our associates was executed while leaving a prayer meeting in Asia. This brought the issue much closer to home for us at Outreach Canada. We continue to pray for the church around the world, especially those facing persecution.

In 2009, in response to its growing opportunites and challenges, One Challenge (OC) International took a big risk to respond to its growing international ministries.
One Challenge International was founded in 1952 as an American non-profit mission. It's purpose was to communicate the Gospel of Jesus Christ and missionary teams were eventually present on five continents.
The OC Global Alliance, of which Outreach Canada is a member, has established a special OCGA COVID-19 relief fund to help “majority world” missionaries as they serve internationally through this crisis.
Have you been encouraged in an on-going task by a new approach or fresh injection of energy? I have a recent story of OC’s involvement in a “new beginning” which is so encouraging! Here is the story of a 'first-time' collaborative summit of 5 church planting networks globally.
