Local Outreach

Here are some of the ways to get involved locally and make a difference. The outreach programs are organized by TWU students.

City Ministries

Street Light ministryStreet Light: This Friday night street ministry with the Union Gospel Mission in downtown Vancouver is all about building relationships; meeting people where they are and sharing God’s love with them.

Rahab Ministry: In partnership with Linwood House Ministries, a team of TWU women provide a sacred space for the abused and sexually exploited women in inner-city Vancouver, providing a place to sit, rest, be safe, comforted, and heard.

GO Prison Ministry: Two teams of TWU students visit inmates at both a male and female correctional centre. While there, they not only provide a listening ear but also a time of worship and Bible study.

NightShift: A comprehensive street ministry that seeks to bring healing to those suffering in Surrey. Each week students work with NighShift to bring dignity and restoration to their friends in the Surrey area.

Service in the Community

Langley Lodge: TWU students bring respect and dignity to their friends at Langley Lodge by hosting sing-along times, playing games or simply offering a listening ear.

Kairos: Artistic skills, of all varieties, are used in creative ways to heal, restore, and bring hope to individuals and communities.

The Fall Workday: Over 500 TWU students reach out to families on a Saturday in late October. Whether it is in their homes or in their gardens students give freely to single parents, the elderly, and all those in need. Check out the video.

Youth & Children

Youth & childrens ministryYouth Extreme: TWU students run an inner-city youth group in partnership with New Beginnings Church. With encouragement, commitment and open hearts, TWU students provide a consistent support to the at-risk youth.

Nights Alive: TWU students partner with Youth Unlimited to create a safe and fun environment for youth (Grades 5 – 7) on Friday evenings.

Plus More…outside of these opportunities TWU students find themselves involved in a number of other services. We are always looking for new ways to get involved and just need your willingness and passion to do it.
