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.

Nick and Vivian Helliwell
Rising Above Abuse Counselling Agency
Nick and Vivian Helliwell have been full time faith missionaries since 2005. Recently, they joined Rising Above Abuse Counseling Agency.
Nick and Vivian are both Indigenous Christians of Nēhiyawa (Cree) heritage. Nick is from the Peepeekisis First Nation and Vivian is from the Whitebear First Nation. While they are proud of their indigenous heritage, their spiritual identity is firmly founded upon Jesus Christ.
Nick and Vivian minister to indigenous people in Regina as well as on reserves outside Regina. Nick and Vivian build bridges for ministry engagement through attendance at weddings, wakes, funerals, home visits, giving rides and other forms of visible involvement in the indigenous community. This ministry impinges on many aspects of urban indigenous life, but is focused primarily on the restoration of men as husbands and fathers.
In the North Central neighborhood, all of Nick’s ministry efforts employ a range of approaches that lead men into mentorship pairings with older, more mature Christians. These efforts include music ministry, Bible studies, community outreach, hospital outreach, breakfasts, men’s camps as well as speaking to churches about men’s ministry. Passionate about the Bible, for over 20 years Nick has been making disciples in Bible studies using study materials he has developed. These Bible study materials have now been published as “Journey Through the Bible”.
Nick sasy “Leading men to faith in the context of strong mentoring relationships with other older, mature Christian men is the keystone of my ministry. Jesus Christ began His church by mentoring twelve men in their faith, commanding them to likewise ‘go and make disciples’. In all of my efforts”, he continues, “I seek to help men develop discipling relationships with other men.”

Multiply - Japan
Wendy was born in Ontario and being an “army brat”, grew up all across Canada. She became a Christian at the age of 28, and at 46 she went on a missions trip to Italy in 2005 with Central Heights Church in Abbotsford (where she was working for four youth pastors). In 2006, God called her to be an ESL teacher in Nagoya, Japan. As a Mission Capacity Builder through MBMSI (now called Multiply), Wendy worked alongside the churches and pastors in Fujigaoka, Komaki & Toyota cities, using the ESL program and children’s events as a means to draw people into the church. She was also involved in 2 Gospel Choirs in Japan where she had opportunities to share her faith, as 98% of the choir members are not Christians. Wendy volunteered with 2 seniors groups there and is still doing zoom calls once/month with them. She will start up zoom classes in April this year with Fujigaoka & Komaki Churches as the present teacher will be leaving at the end of March.
Unable to return to Japan for the past 2 years due to Covid, she is still employed with Multiply in the home office in Abbotsford as a Partner Care Liaison. She is hoping to return to Japan this summer. Please pray for her visa application to be accepted & approved once Japan opens its borders again for travel.
