The SLC mission program is founded in the belief that our lives are changed through the practical outworking of our faith, following the example of Jesus. He said, “For the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Matthew 20:28). Within the SLC, we believe that by providing our students with opportunities to change their world, they themselves will be changed. This is why we offer the following opportunities:
Gear Up (short term action)
Each summer, we take a number of Eden students to partner with different ministries (organizations, churches, schools, shelters, etc.) for an amazing 10 days, to make a difference in the lives of others. Past trips have included inner-city ministry in Montreal as well as partnering with Mennonite Disaster Service (MDS) in Staten Island, NY to help rebuild from Hurricane Sandy.
This year students will be joining with other students from around the province to participate in the SOAR Montreal program through MB Mission. For a complete description of the program please visit SOAR Montreal
