Make sure to complete this RSVP form so that we can plan appropriately.
This second meeting is designed to dig deeper into our vision and connect with others as this new church begins to form. David Adkins (Planting Pastor) will talk about the mission, share the specific vision for Village Abbotsford, and will address any questions. As well, there will be time to meet new people, pray, and learn about the various serving opportunities. Child care will be provided.
We have been building momentum through the fall and have two more Info Meetings after this one – all unique and distinct – that you won’t want to miss. Mark you calendars for:
Sunday November 24
Sunday December 15
If you already know you are all-in and ready to step up, let us know the area(s) you are interested in serving in.
Join or Host a Community Group Now!
Community Groups are meeting during the fall as we lead up to our launch in January. They are made up of 10-20 people who meet in homes to unpack the truths of the Bible, work through tough questions, do life together, make real friends, serve our city, and experience the gospel in ways we can’t on our own.
To find an available group in your area, go to this page here to see the groups specifically meeting in the Abbotsford / Mission / Chilliwack area.

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 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 Chilliwack area is to plant a relational, missional community that engages skeptics, raises and empowers leaders, and impacts the city for Jesus. Their heart is to care for, encourage and build a community that sees 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.
