From Georgia to Canada!
In 2006, Jason and Carrie Byers moved to Canada all the way from…GEORGIA! They swapped the hot and muggy south for the slightly cooler north! They are church planters with the North American Mission Board and have planted a church called Celebration! Church in Ottawa, Canada. Jason and Carrie have two children…at the moment, that is. They are expecting number three in October!
As the capital city of Canada, Ottawa is a multicultural city of approximately 900,000 people. The city is home to several universities, including St. Paul University which is where Celebration! Church presently meets.
Why Canada? There is just one Baptist church per 123,971 in Canada as compared to 1 per 2, in Georgia! It comes down to the question of accessibility! Everyone shares the same need to hear a relevant sharing of the gospel. Much of the world, including Canada, simply does not have as many chances to hear the message of Christ! Jason and Carrie decided to do something about that!
We’re glad to be partnered up with the Byers!
