British Columbia joined confederation in 1871, just four years after the historic British North American Act of 1867. Canada’s western-most province is home to over 4.6 million residents and is known predominantly for its stunning natural beauty; in fact, the phrase “Beautiful B.C.” has graced BC license plates for years.
Sometimes called the “California of Canada,” BC has more in common with Washington & Oregon than some parts of Canada east and west; it is known for being socially and politically liberal. This region (also known as Cascadia) boasts the highest number of those who claim “no religion” on the census, (38%) yet people continue to describe themselves as “spiritual.”
God is calling church planters into the harvest here in BC. As you pray for this region, join us in asking the Lord for a great out-pouring of His Spirit, for open-doors in new communities, and for renewal of established congregations.
