Who We Are
In 2006 a group of individuals and organizations committed to loving and reaching the nations among us, began to find each other and network together for the sake of the Kingdom in the Greater Toronto Area. There was a commitment to extend Christ’s love across the cultures and ethnicities. However, the resources, the collective knowledge, and the experience of people with a similar focus had been difficult to find and access. Individuals representing a broad spectrum of Christian denominations, mission agencies, backgrounds and ethnicities came together to address these concerns. This led to the progressive development of a strategy and structure for those with a passion to reach the “nations” living among us. These discussions came to fulfillment with the creation of UReachToronto (Urban Resources Assisting Churches in Toronto).
In 2018, the UReach initiative branched out to create UReachCanada and its sister websites — expanding to a national level. Partnering with the Jaffray Centre for Global Initiatives at Ambrose University, UReachCalgary was formed to carry out the UReach vision in the Calgary area.
Our activities are organized around four key values:
A Collaborative Future
UReachCalgary is a critical initiative that has grown out of this collaboration. This website has become a valuable tool in our collective effort to connect people and share resources that will facilitate Christian ministry and mission among the diverse peoples of the Calgary Area and beyond.
UReachCalgary is only as strong as the collective commitment of those who are willing to partner with and contribute to this developing initiative. The heart and soul of this website come from those like you who are engaged in this dimension of Kingdom work. The expanding data, the tools and the resources for reaching across the cultures and the stories of what God is doing from many different perspectives are our collective contributions to the kingdom of God in Calgary.
The contributions of many people, churches, denominations, and mission agencies are welcomed. Please contact us if you would like to make a contribution of time, money or resources to help develop UReachCalgary in its goal to provide resources for intercultural ministry in Calgary.
