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 exciting team of new friends.
French Canadians comprise the largest unreached people group in North America
While predominantly Roman Catholic (85%) weekly church attendance in Quebec is among the lowest in Canada.
Islam is the largest non-Christian religious group, with over 100,000 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 with excellent training and thoughtful debrief.

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.
SOAR Montréal has held a key place in our ongoing strategy for discipling and deploying students in living their life on mission for Jesus Christ. Its balanced focus on worship, prayer, and biblical teaching, mixed with practical ministry and declaration of the gospel puts it on the forefront of short term mission destinations in North America.
I discovered what a personal relationship with my creator is like during my time with SOAR Montreal. The powerful worship sessions and teachings helped me to hear God’s voice and get to know the Holy Spirit. Being on a team taught me so much about prayer and growing together. And it was on SOAR that I discovered a passion for serving the kingdom and sharing God’s radical, life-changing love. It’s something I want to do for the rest of my life.
God used SOAR to put in me a heart and a passion for His mission. This program laid in me the theological and practical foundations of my faith. God also used it to teach me about Himself and how He truly viewed me. SOAR is a big family catalyzing their efforts and affections to participate in God's rescue plan to save a broken people by blessing and loving them.
God used SOAR to fill me up with his love and make me discover the power of prayer. The extravagant grace God showed me transforms my heart with a renewed compassion for the people around me
SOAR Montreal is an unforgettable experience. The different moments of prayer, teachings and especially missionary activities take you in a total and true connection with God. Even though I'm from the Montreal area, this experience has shown me a new vision for this city. The love of Christ is expressed not only vertically (to God), but also horizontally (to the others). Come live, in community, the experience that I lived and you will not be disappointed!
