Going on a mission trip was life-changing for me. When I was there I was just saturated in God, knowing him and worshipping him. The gospel has changed me. It’s a privilege to be a part of what God is doing.Mark
Note: Trip cost includes housing, food, and missions trip activities. Participants will have the option to raise additional funds to cover their travel to Ottawa.
Ottawa, like most cities in the world, contains many subcultures—all of which need to be infused with the gospel.
PRAXIS Ottawa is an opportunity to practise living an integrated life. There will be spiritual development, meaningful missional engagement, and growth in community. We’re facilitating a space for you to develop in the context of living missionally.
PRAXIS is for those longing for more in their spiritual journey.
PRAXIS is for those discerning their particular mission.
PRAXIS is for those who want to live in a community on mission.
What to expect
Come develop healthy spiritual rhythms to enrich your faith. We will dive deeper into knowing God. We will establish structures and rhythms that help you depend on him.
For example, we’ll explore the wisdom of taking rest and downtime through the practice of a weekly Sabbath. A past participant notes how she discovered that “a daily, weekly, monthly Sabbath is a pathway of healing from hurry-sickness.”
We want to foster an environment of trust and community. Come willing to pray, share meals, study the Bible, and be on mission together. We will practise a communal “rule of life” that will develop consistency and depth in our shared spiritual life.
As we do life together, past participants have said, “For the first time, Christianity isn’t just something I believe, but it is something that I am experiencing!”
Each week we’ll engage missionally by partnering with local cross-cultural agencies, to serve vulnerable populations in Ottawa’s urban setting. With a mentor, you’ll reflect on these experiences to notice how you integrate being and doing.
A past PRAXIS participant notes that “learning to truly listen to someone’s story has transformed how I share the gospel.”
