The Missions Hub exists to support and encourage Canadian Christian mission and sending around the world. Located at Knox Church, in downtown Toronto, the Missions Hub brings together students and missionaries, campus groups and missions agencies, Christian professionals and churches to work together for the Kingdom. In its first years of operation, the Missions Hub involved 30+ missions agencies and engaged thousands of students. By providing co-working space, and hosting events, trainings, prayer days, and meetings, the Missions Hub has given us an exciting glimpse of what can be accomplished when we work together in God’s Global Mission (missionshub.ca)
From that first year, it was decided that the Missions Hub would build on the passionate work that had begun by focusing very intentionally on missions discipleship. Located across from the U of T campus, we recognized the opportunity on our doorstep. Five missions agencies and one church (OMF, TEAM, SIM, AVANT, Wycliffe Bible Translators, Knox World Mission) set out to work together through the Missions Hub to collaborate with multiple other missions agencies, churches and campus groups. In 2016, the Missions Hub became devoted to partnering with campus groups, to support the growth of students and to share opportunities and resources for global missions. To date, we have collaborated with students from Intervarsity, Power to Change, Chinese Christian Fellowship, and 10+ other campus groups and churches.
The Missions Hub believes that as campus groups are deeply engaging students, they are preparing Christian students for lifelong ministry. The Missions Hub wants those students to be well-resourced in mission on their campus and in the world. Our prayer is that the Missions Hub will be a catalyst for missional engagement.
