Global and Local Mission

Overview

Tyndale gives you the chance to serve both globally and in the local context of Toronto. Get involved by using your gifts and talents to help those in need.

Local Ministry

Toronto Facts
Over 5000 homeless in Toronto
2.3 million Immigrants in the GTA
Over 100 languages spoken

Join a team that works with the needy in Toronto. Travel to low-income neighborhoods and give practical help to people who need it. Hand out sandwiches to the homeless on the street. Build a home for low-income families. Donate clothes to youth at risk. The local outreach you do through Tyndale will change the lives of people you touch and along the way also change yours. Partner with your friends to serve at Yonge Street Mission, Habitat for Humanity, local food banks, and many more. Experience the diverse city of Toronto by getting involved with missions.

Local outreach partners:

Sanctuary, Habitat for Humanity, Youth Unlimited, Light Patrol, Yonge Street Mission, Scott Missions

Intercultural Ministry

Tyndale is in one of the most multicultural cities in the world. Exchange ideas with people of faith from all kinds of different backgrounds. Learn the story of a new immigrant to Canada who fought their way out of oppression. Swap stories with a man who grew up in completely different understanding of the church. Build relationships with people who are from opposite cultures united by the same faith.

Global Mission Teams

Journey to a country overseas with a missions team. Every year, Tyndale sends out over 40 students to serve in a different cultural context. The people you serve will be your teachers in the way they live, act and worship. You might find yourself so in love with the mission field that you’ll never want to leave. Reach out to your international community and get an eye-opening experience by joining a Tyndale missions team. Some places that Tyndale students have gone in the past are:

Japan
Interact and build relationships with the people of Japan, sharing the message of the Gospel through evangelistic concerts to country with less than 1% of a Christian population.
India
Care and love for those who need Jesus in a practical way as you travel to Kolkata, India to minister to child addicts and prostitutes.
 
Dominican Republic
Organize activities and involve the youth among the “bateys”, or communities, of Haitian refugees in the city of Barahona, Dominican Republic.
Alaska
