Who We Are
We have two designations for the broader concept of missions. “Home Missions” is reaching out to people within our immediate community. While, “Away Missions” is outreach to countries beyond Canada and to different people groups within Canada. We partner with Foursquare Missions International in reaching our world.
Our purpose is to provide opportunities for groups and individuals to fulfill the Great Commission to preach the gospel to all the world, to develop an understanding of other cultures, to strengthen the spiritual lives of those sent out as missionaries, to be a blessing to others by helping the poor, the sick and the lost, to give the church a stronger vision to become more missions-minded as people share their experiences with others, to deepen our appreciation for what we have, to develop relationships between missions team members, and with missions team supporters at home.(Read more about our Foursquare outreach by going to www.foursquare.org/missions.)
Our vision is to see increased prayer, giving, and involvement among our church community at Sunshine Hills Church by clearly communicating the different missions opportunities that exist in the Lower Mainland, in our nation, and around the world.
What We Do
Foursquare Missions International
We partner with Foursquare Missions International in reaching our world. Foursquare Missions is committed to the mandate to win the world to Christ by making disciples, planting healthy reproducing churches, partnering in the development of indigenous national leadership, and facilitating the expansion of the global Foursquare family.
On the third Sunday of each month, we have a special emphasis on missions and the people of Sunshine Hills financially give to ministry “beyond our four walls” in the following ways: Supporting our Canadian Foursquare missionaries in the field in various countries around the world; giving to special projects, local initiatives, and disaster relief efforts in our world; and supporting our short term missions trips, which give opportunity for teams from our local church to experience other cultures and minister to people in other countries.
Short-term Missions Trips
Annually, we send a team on a short term missions trip. In the past we have sent teams to Mexico, Costa Rica, and Los Angeles. Information about joining the team is announced months ahead of the trip.
