Experience the difference of living life on mission together. We are a community that has been touched by God’s love. He has given us new LIFE and we are moved to love others in return, particularly those who live in Montreal. SOAR Montreal is a mission training opportunity for French and English speakers. You may form a team from your church or school, or come on your own and be placed on a team of new friends.
French Canadians comprise the largest unreached people group in North America. While predominantly Roman Catholic (75%) weekly church attendance in Quebec is among the lowest in Canada. Islam is the largest non-Christian religious group, with over 150,000 Muslims in Montreal it is the second-largest concentration of Muslims in Canada.
The best thing about the SOAR program is its dedicated training, ministry, and debrief stages. Personal growth and short-term mission only works when there is excellent training and thoughtful debrief.

Love God, love people.
It's a simple but deep goal. Your team will join what God is doing in this city by partnering with churches and community groups.
Together you will love this city in the name of Jesus. Sometimes it's gardening at a women's shelter, or running a carnival that shows the community that God is love. We do whatever it takes to build relationships and share God’s good news.
