The location of the new site at Abbotsford Cineplex is perfectly situated for residents of Abbotsford and Mission, and very accessible to the region reaching from east Aldergrove to Chilliwack – an area representing over 350,000 people.
Only about 10% of the population is connected to vital Jesus-centered faith.
Why a New Church?
New churches see 70% more people make decisions to follow Jesus.
85% of churches are in plateau or decline.
The remaining 15% grow from biological, transfer, returning people, and new conversions. Out of all four of those only 2% from new conversions.
This area is part of one of Canada’s largest mission fields.
Our mission is to see people transformed into fully devoted followers of Jesus, and we live that purpose out by prioritizing three things: gospel, community, and culture.
Along with running his own business in land-use management and business development, David and his wife Chrissy have served in vocational ministry for 20 years in, church planting, missions, youth and schools work, Alpha courses and community groups in London UK, Ontario, and BC.
Originally from a large church planting movement in the UK, David and Chrissy’s focus for the Abbotsford, Mission and the Chilliwack area is to plant a relational missional community that reaches skeptics, raises and releases leaders, and impacts the city for Jesus. Their heart is to care for, encourage and build a community that is together on a mission of seeing people transformed into fully devoted followers of Jesus.
The Adkins have three children: Christina married to Steve, James married to Yanelys, Toby, and two grandchildren, Nathan and Daniel.
