Classes have started for university and college students across Canada, and so have our P2C-Students communities! Pandemic restrictions and guidelines vary for each province and school, so it’s another year with a unique start. Amidst these challenges, God is also providing unique opportunities to connect with students. 

Whether in person or online, student volunteers and staff are getting creative as they help new students get plugged into Christian community, with the hope of helping them take their next steps towards Jesus. Curious to see what’s been happening coast-to-coast? Check out the images below.
