Reaching the Community, City, & the Nations
Since 2002 mission trips have come to form an integral part of church life at Glen Acres. In October of 2002 four men and four women traveled to Bolivia to work in the small village of Licoma, located in the foothills of the Andes mountain range. Canadian Baptists have a long history (over 100 years) of work in Bolivia. On this trip the team was involved with construction, children’s ministry and adult ministry. The team worked alongside Bolivians from the church where the project was located.
In 2004 a team of five youth and two leaders traveled to Montreal during March Break for a one week mission alongside several hundred other youth from Ontario and Quebec. The team was involved in outreach, worship and practical projects. Another youth team is currently making plans to take part in the 2010 Canadian Baptists of Ontario & Quebec youth mission to Montreal.
In the summer of 2007 a team of eleven youth and adults returned to Bolivia. This time the focus was again on a construction project and children and adult ministries at the oldest Baptist church in Bolivia – situated in Oruro.
