Journey Canada - Find hope. Live life.

Journey Canada is a community-based, Christ-centred discipleship ministry that exists to help people find hope and live life through experiencing Jesus in their relationships, sexuality and identity.

The secret parts of people’s lives have been kept secret for far too long. These dark places have wreaked havoc, causing many men and women in the church to despair and give up hope.

That’s the reason Journey Canada exists—to help bring freedom in those who are addicted, abused and confused (Isaiah 61). Their desire is to see God’s people live the full and healthy lives He intended.
