The OM Canadian Challenges are our response to the massive influx of immigrants, particularly Muslims, Hindus and Sikhs, and to the pervasive secular humanism in our society. We see these as great opportunities to provide a cross-cultural training experience in the heart of our urban areas.

Canadian Challenges are one-week programs that train believers in sharing their faith clearly, confidently and cross-culturally. We begin with two practical tools—the ‘Evangecube’ and ‘Five Great Truths of the Bible’ (Bridge to Life) illustration—which equip people to speak with anyone.

Each day is balanced with classroom learning on a world religion (e.g. Islam) in the morning, a visit to a religious site (e.g. mosque) in the afternoon, and neighbourhood visitation (preferably in multicultural areas) in the evening. We learn by doing—the OM way of serving and growing. Our goal is to love internationals (and everyone else) into God’s Kingdom by learning (about their worldviews), listening (to them, often using a survey), serving (perhaps cleaning up their neighbourhood) and sharing the Good News of salvation in Jesus and how He has changed our lives. We challenge team members to make evangelism their lifestyle.

Launched in 2004, the Canadian Challenge has grown to 14 cities nationwide with over 1200 believers trained in 59 programs. In 2016, will see 12 Challenges across the country. We challenge Canadian believers to move out of their comfort zones and become a missionary for a week, without a passport or possibly even a ticket. Are you up for the Challenge?
