“This mission trip meant so much more to me than just serving others. It's hard to put into words the deep impact the people, conversations, and everything else had on me.”

Janis, 2023

Why go on the Nations Next Door mission trip?

Many nations are restricted or challenging to enter. But God has brought students from these countries to study right here in Canada.

The nations are on your campus.

The nations are just down the street.

The nations are next door!  

International students desire connection and friendship with people who have genuine love and concern for them. You have an incredible opportunity to welcome those who have left their family, friends, and country.

As you share the love of Christ with them, you can have a global impact from Canada.

What happens during Nations Next Door?

Over several weeks, you’ll come alongside international students practically, relationally and spiritually, so that they might know God’s great love for them and experience life in him.

Your work will accelerate the development of long-term and ongoing ministry to international students in Ottawa.

You’ll also live in a community with a shared mission. Together you’ll deepen your relationship with Jesus and your understanding of God’s heart for the nations.

In a typical week you will:

  • Pray, worship, and study God’s Word together
  • Learn about different cultures and how to contextualize the gospel
  • Build cross-cultural friendships through food and fun
  • Plan activities to love and serve international students: potlucks, sports and games nights, English corners, and/or talent shows
  • Talk with new friends about deeper things, your stories, and God
  • Experience team building and fun
  • Explore Ottawa and visit sites of interest

Because you’ll be learning in a Canadian context, after this trip it will be relatively easy to apply your experiences to your own local situation.

If you’re a Canadian student or an international student studying in Canada, you can come with us!

How will this trip deepen roots and widen horizons?

Deepen your roots as you: 

  • Learn how to love God more deeply, walk with him more closely, and partner with his Spirit
  • See how different cultures uniquely reflect God
  • Experience God at work in new ways

Widen your horizons as you: 

  • Grow in befriending others from different countries, cultures, and worldviews
  • Learn about other cultures through international students, including Christian international students who know what it’s like to follow Jesus in another culture
  • Experience life in community
