Become Globally Engaged!
You can participate in God’s global mission by praying, giving, and serving.
We are a community of globally-engaged Christians
We pray, give, and serve alongside of committed partners around the world in over 45 mission agencies.
As each of us lives in obedience by serving wherever God has placed us, we join our 201 financially-supported missionaries who serve in over 43 countries in the world.
Our giving allocates the abundant resources we have been entrusted by God to share with our brothers and sisters in ministry.
Our global ministry partnerships address our four Mission Priorities, which are specific areas of ministry we believe God desires us to focus on as a church.
MobilizationMinistries that develop, deploy, and connect indigenous missionaries around the world, so that they are equipped and empowered to share the good news of Christ in sensitive and obedient ways.
MigrationMinistries that help the Church to welcome, include, support, and advocate for people on the move.
CommunicationMinistries that use media to express biblical truth in bold and creative ways for evangelism, discipleship, and worship.
RestorationMinistries that use biblical principles to develop communities and care for creation through just and sustainable ministry models.
How You Can Pray
Prayer is effective! One of the best ways we can engage globally is to pray earnestly and wisely.

You can become informed about important prayer requests and global mission updates by following us on Instagram and Facebook.
You can also join our prayer team to pray regularly for our mission partners in very specific ways. If you are interested in being a committed global prayer volunteer, please contact our Missionary Care Pastor, Zareh Zetlian.
Below are additional prayer resources that you may find helpful!
How You Can Give
When you give financial contributions through The Peoples Church, you enable a great variety of local and international ministries to live and share the good news of the Gospel. Whether it’s by helping someone in need through a benevolent offering, giving to support one of our global initiatives, or providing funds to sustain our church ministry and facility improvements — your giving helps us stand together in God’s global mission! Learn more about ways to give.
How You Can Serve
Serve on Your Frontline
Our greatest mobilization in mission by far is within our own congregation, as each person commits to making their neighbourhood, school, and workplace a daily ministry for sharing the good news of Christ. The mobilization of missionaries in our neighbourhoods and around the world continues to be the primary commitment of our church as we engage in God’s global mission.
Join our Welcoming Ministries
We encourage everyone in our congregation to become engaged in our welcoming ministries. As a global church, we see God at work in global migration and eagerly join Him there.
Here in Toronto, we are intentional about welcoming people well and ensuring that they are integrated into the life of the Church. Our Newcomers Ministry and Refugee Welcome Ministry are our most vibrant outreach ministries. New Canadians are bringing new life to our church and communities!
You can get involved in these exciting ministries by contacting our Refugee Ministries Coordinator, Lara Boghos, and our Newcomers Ministry Pastor, Nelson Chang.
Join our Local Partners
While God has called us to focus on certain ministry areas as a church, we rejoice at what He is doing in and through our brothers and sisters around us. Besides sharing the love of Christ in your daily life, and serving within the ministries of The Peoples Church, you may find strength and challenge to serve with some of our partners who share the same gifts and calling.
Here are a number of organizations in the Toronto area that we are connected to, each with their own commitments to compassion, justice, and evangelism in different realms of the city:
- Centre for Redemptive Entrepreneurship

Visit our Global Partners
In all we do, we seek to build and strengthen relationships with our partners around the world. We have the joy and privilege of visiting and learning from our global partners. When we visit, we experience firsthand how God is at work through his people in various cultures and circumstances.
Mission team experiences are vital components in our discipleship as global Christians. They help us to grow and develop a more informed, global worldview. We go and welcome in order to learn, to encourage, to grow together, and to create strong connections within the Body of Christ.
