Canada Bethel Community Church
Being a volunteer you will be accommodated in Barrie (perhaps by a host family). Bethel Community Church where you mainly will be working is a dedicated church straight in Barrie. BCC’s motto heads: „Our mission as church is to equip people to a true discipleship of Jesus Christ”. BCC likewise is very involved in projects outside of church. For example the in 2015 new founded “Camp Promise” (homework done under supervision including an afternoon program)
The volunteers primarily will be working in BCC and support the children’s and youth work of the church. The main task consists of organizing the after-school-program (Camp Promise) for kids, for example supervising homework that is being done, worship, devotionals, doing arts and crafts, sports, etc. Besides, you will help out by the breakfast program for children. A further service area comprises assistance in the children’s and youth work of the church. Plus, it would be brilliant if you are able to support the music team during the church service.

Again and again, we were able to experience that God is doing things in secret that we would have considered almost impossible. For example, I was totally amazed when a six-year-old child came to me...
