CCI Ministry in Canada: Evangelicals represented 25% of the population in 1900, but currently only represent about 8%. Bible colleges and seminaries committed to a Biblical view of Scripture are fulfilling a major role in strengthening evangelical witness. Some are growing, while others are struggling with enrollment and support. CCI is working in Manitoba and Quebec to prepare a new generation of Christ-like leaders who will be prepared to lead Canada towards a revival and restoration of the Body of Christ through enhanced Bible knowledge, ministry skills, and personal spiritual growth. Pastor Mike Comtois is leading seven classes through Faith Evangelical Bible Church in Winkler, Manitoba. For more information and project needs, please contact us.
