Mission Central is the umbrella ministry of MISSION FEST VANCOUVER, a historical Canadian missions conference. Our passion is to inspire great faith and hope by partnering with the supernatural life and person of Jesus. When the manifest presence of Jesus is among us, we are impacted by his redeeming, transforming love.

The heart of Mission Central is to partner with churches to host events united around the presence and mission of Jesus in the world. These events seek to co-labour with agencies and missionaries, to love Him, encounter Him, and be inspired to give ourselves to follow Him everywhere He leads. Times together centred on Jesus, with missionaries present, ignite an atmosphere where He becomes all.

Missions Fest Vancouver does business as Mission Central. Missions Fest Vancouver is a registered charity and certified member of the Canadian Council of Christian Charities.

Encounter Jesus at Mission Fest Vancouver

This year’s theme isn’t just a “conference theme” that you’ll hear about in great sermons. It’s our conviction that, together at the conference, we are to model and practice the reality that we follow a Person; He doesn’t follow us. We can meet Jesus in the messages preached, during prayer times, and while browsing through the exhibit areas. Jesus Himself will touch us, call us, renew us, and save us.

Our prayer for all those who come is that they will go home and be able to say, as the early disciples did in Acts 15:4,

“And when they had come to Jerusalem, they were received by the church and the apostles and the elders; and they reported all things that God had done with them.”

This year, all the conference speakers are our friends who have an affection for one another. Everyone speaking from the platforms are friends who carry the conviction that Jesus is a person who, when we give Him space to move, can do more than we could imagine. Our current speakers are Steve Schroeder, Matt Menzel, Jonathan Mitchell, April Bates, Jon Thompson, James Bonney, and Ryan Johnson, with more to come. We’ve asked the speakers to spend time with the Father and listen, and then preach what He tells them to say. Seminar topics will be posted in January. Read our speakers’ bios on our website
