Missionary support – Island Breeze staff get no salaries. They are finacially supported by the good will of friends, churches and associates. Island Breeze believes that evangelism starts with building friends and relationships. With over 50% of all of Canada’s indigenous people under age 25, that means starting with youth.
This requires financial support for the Pacific Islanders who come to Canada as Missionary workers. Often friendship starts with activities – games, sports, teaching activities, crafts and just plain fun.
Team members serve alongside local indigenous churches and Pastors in worship, leading Bible studies and training.
Counselling opportunities primarily with women and youth.
We are looking for volunteer assistance to serve alongside us.
