We believe partnership is essential as we work together to build God’s Kingdom through discipleship!

The Ten2 Project

Spend a summer living out the gospel across Europe! This exciting opportunity for university students is taking Europe, and GEM, by storm!

Mission Trips

From a couple of weeks to a year, come serve the Church in Europe while learning from experienced disciple-makers!

Long Term

Ever wake up and say “there has to be more”? God may be calling you to use your gifts in long-term ministry. Let us know, we’re here to walk that path with you.

Give

GEM Canada relies on the generous donations of organizations and individuals from around the world. If you’d like to become one of our financial partners, we humbly accept your support.

Prayer

We need your prayers! Please join GEM Canada as we pray for Europe and for Canada. Click the button below for the latest prayer needs of our partners and missionaries.

Join us in praying for Jordan and Sharon Toews!
In 2019, GEM helped over 1600 volunteers participate in short-term missions, serving and supporting national partners throughout Europe. Jordan and Sharon are on the team that makes that possible! Join us in praying for them as they prepare to return to Germany in August. As trips resume in the coming months, pray for wisdom as well as for workers to help the European church in this critical time!

We're happy to stand with GEM International’s anti-racism statement, and thankful to be part of an organisation willing to take a good hard look at itself and its role in reshaping our future. https://bit.ly/2U8kJo4
Many of you watched our Executive Director's personal video to staff earlier this week, and we're grateful for the conversations being held across the country. Feel free to connect with him at doug.barkman@gemission.ca if you'd like to join the conversation with us.

Instagram post 17885054215592296 Standing in solidarity with those who are outraged at racism, in prayer rather than politics; honest self-reflection, resisting the urge to judge others... We must lovingly confront any attitudes within our own organisation that would prevent us being a movement marked by unity. We believe it is the key to receiving God’s continued blessing on our work. In the words of Micah 6:8: ‘He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.’ #BlackoutTuesday

Instagram post 17854738087985542 Prayer request: In Lille, France, GEM missionary Olivia* has worked regularly with local university students for the past five years. Due to COVID-19, classes were cancelled in the spring, and will not reopen before the fall. Although many students have left the area, a group of international students are stuck there living in poor conditions.

Olivia and her university ministry team seek wisdom as they decide how to best continue discipling those they have developed relationships with and reach those students who are still in the area, desperate for community and hope. *name changed for security

The space between us can't separate us from God's love. COVID-19 is affecting us as a global community, so we at GEM are diving into creative ways to build community in the heart of physical distancing! #jointheharvest #neverstopneverstopping #physicaldistancing ...
