Wondering what people are saying about MissionFest Toronto?
Linda Nagel, Head of WEC Mobilization Department: All of our reps gave very positive feedback on the opportunities to talk with people who are interested in getting involved in Missions. Fifteen wrote their names on our sheet for further info and six of those responded to my follow-up letter. This is the best response we have seen in years. God is moving in lives and we are excited to help them move another step forward towards His harvest field.
Thank you for all the work you put into to making the event possible. It was well organized.
John P. Brown, Canadian Director: Africa Inland Mission Canada has participated in MissionFest Toronto since its beginning. We are committed to MissionFest Toronto because it is essential to show Canadians that all of us as mission organizations are working together to build the Kingdom—here in Canada and around the world. But we also participate because MissionFest is so beneficial to us. Many folks whose first encounter with AIM was at our conference centre booth have gone out to impact lives all over Africa. Thanks MFT!
Charles Price, The Peoples Church: ‘MissionFest is a wonderful opportunity for people all across the city of Toronto to come and meet folks who are really on the job taking the gospel here and globally being inspired by that, because the natural default position of the church is to become maintenance, to become protective, to become concerned about our own well being rather than about the purpose for which churches have come into existence which is to take the gospel of Jesus Christ across the world.’
Dave Zetta, In Touch Ministries: ‘It’s an opportunity for us to meet with our supporters and build relationships. MissionFest is all about relationships. We can get to speak to them and find more about who they are.’
Charlie McCordic, The Evangelical Alliance Mission: ‘It’s a chance to be able to connect,..meet people that we would never meet any other way.’
Hany Boghossian, MissionGTA: ‘The opportunity to connect with so many members of the Body of Christ where we can see the fostering of not only relationships, but what the mission and passion for God is doing today on the earth,…every year we see bridges being built, relationships being re-kindled, friendships being made and opportunities for serving, not only locally but globally, it’s phenomenal!’
Colin McCartney, Urban Promise Toronto: ‘You know it has been great to be able to see friends, a lot of these missionaries and mission organizations are all friends and we are all doing this for the kingdom of God, working together, and there’s different areas and ways to do ministry and so many different ministries that do it well. So to be able to join together as a family of God and get involved in different ways to do missions—that’s what MissionFest is all about.’
