About Mission Canada
We have made a crucial decision as a Pentecostal family. We have determined to have a national mission agency that will enable us to reach Canada with the gospel in unique ways. There are many contexts where there is a gap; campuses, people groups, regions and communities where Jesus is inadequately represented. Mission Canada is committed to identify and equip those who will pursue their calling to fill these gaps.
Partnered with you and I, these Mission Canada workers will make a lasting impact on the people who they are sent to. I am inviting you to link with us to see a whole new wave of ministry into our five areas of missional priority. First, we are asking you to Pray Every Day. Transformation only takes place when the spiritual work of intercession is being done. Pray that the Lord of our Canadian harvest will send the right persons to fill the missional gaps. We are also urging you to Give Every Day. Existing and newly appointed Mission Canada workers are being released to do critical ministry and they and their projects are worthy of our financial support.
This is who the PAOC is: a relationally based mission family working together to see Canadians transformed by Jesus' good news.
Together in His mission,
Rev. David R. Wells

Who is Mission Canada?
Some will ask, 'What is Mission Canada?' A better question is, 'Who is Mission Canada?'
It is a better question because it acknowledges that mission is primarily concerned with Spirit-empowered people working in relationship toward God-honouring ends.
Mission Canada is a growing movement of God's people who actively care about our homeland. Its strength is the collective passion, insight, and vision of proven local practitioners on five missional priorities that focus on particular peoples in our nation:
Canada’s next generation—children, youth and post-secondary campus students
The people of Quebec and Francophones in other provinces
Immigrants to Canada and their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren
Canada’s Aboriginal people—First Nations, Métis and Inuit
Those who live in Canada’s growing urban contexts
Mission Canada is gaining momentum as its convictions pervade our fellowship. The movement is facilitated by a team of people who guide and coordinate efforts in partnership with district offices and local partners. The members of Mission Canada are committed to this nation, and to the PAOC's vital role in Christ's mission here, seeking greater clarity, unified strategies, and more pointed effectiveness.

What is the function of Mission Canada?
We are all on mission. It is a continuation of Jesus Christ's work while He was on earth. 'To seek and save the lost' is how He described it. He clarified the mission for us when He told his followers to 'make disciples of all nations'. This is a timeless command that requires timely application.
Mission Canada exists to assist the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada fulfill Christ's mission more effectively. Our mandate is to do that in three functional ways. First, we are here to help make mature, devoted followers of Christ through intentional disciplemaking.
Next, we realize that an ever increasing number of disciples will demand more congregations where they can gather for worship and scatter for mission. We are here to help with insight, partnerships, and resources for church multiplication.
Christians are called to be salt and light in a darkened, bitter world, working to bring the transformation of God's Kingdom to it. We are called to social responsibility that is informed by the word of God and empowered by the Holy Spirit.
The mission is easily understood: make disciples, gather them for teaching and encouragement, and equip them to live as Christ did. All for the glory of God and for the sake of lost people.
