Church Missions

Learn more about our church missions and the communities we serve both locally and globally.

Jesus calls all of us to be his witnesses to the ends of the earth. The Missions Mobilization Team (MMT) seeks to help PCC engage in this calling by encouraging each of us to share the love of God within our city, as well as providing opportunities to come alongside others through short-term missions. Beyond fostering a culture of looking beyond our church walls to our neighbors, we also partner with a number of full-time missionaries, some who touch lives here in Regina and others overseas, through financial and prayer support.

The bulk of our fundraising for our missionary partners happens at the annual October Mission’s Festival, the Sunday after Thanksgiving. Congregants can also give to missions throughout the year by designating donations for specific sponsored partners, organizations or projects. Offerings received the fifth Sunday of any month also go towards missions, specifically our Multiply sponsored partners and short-term missions. Students working at Christian summer camps, PCC run summer children’s programs and short-term missions trips are eligible to access these ‘short-term missions’ funds.

The Missions Mobilization Team meets regularly to discuss how we can best encourage and support PCCers in those places where God is calling them, in their own life setting right here in Regina, and foster connections with our missionary partners. As a team we long to listen to God together, joining Him in the work He is already doing in Regina and beyond.

Madou Traore

Multiply - Burkina Faso

As a child he was ‘Madou the Terrible’, beating up other kids until he was 16 years old when missionaries came to his hometown and Madou learned about life in Christ. Though his father briefly disowned him because of his faith, his father soon called Madou back home to live with him. This is when Madou received a call from God to do His work.
When Phil and Carol Bergen, missionaries in Burkina Faso, were looking for someone to take the new church in N’Dorola to the next phase, they knew they needed someone with gifts of evangelism and discipleship who was from the same cultural heritage as the Nanerigé. They learned about Madou, a Senufo pastor from a neighbouring village in Kotura, who was gifted in these areas. By God’s grace, Madou’s church released him to become a missionary to the Nanerigé people. Today, Pastor Madou continues to serve among the Nanerigé people, pastoring, discipling and training local leaders. He is currently overseeing the three graduate Nanerigé pastors who were placed in various churches in the Nanerigé area after the Bergens left Burkina Faso. He also helps with teaching at the Pastor’s training school, where this past year two individuals from Nanerigé area churches were students.
