Who We Are
The Spark Initiative has been developed by BIC Canada and is thrilled to get behind a new ways of young leaders.
Who We Are
A family of churches, transformed by Christ, revealing God’s kingdom.
Canadian Baptists of Ontario and Quebec (CBOQ) is a family of churches that exist to equip our churches and leaders to engage in their mission from God in their community.
CBOQ supports local churches and their communities by training leaders, supporting innovative ministries, responding compassionately to social needs, responding to crises and providing churches with administrative and financial services. In partnership with our local churches, CBOQ also plays a collaborative role in seeding new expressions of being the church today. By providing resources for churches and leaders, we seek to share the good news of Jesus with our neighbours and share with others the love he has shown us.
One of our strategic priorities is the intentional investment into Next Generation Ministries. Given this priority, we have embraced the opportunity to serve as the umbrella organization in the management and facilitation of the The Spark Initiative 2018.
