“This discipleship adventure will ask you to consider Kingdom truths as you serve, and reflect on issues of poverty and homelessness. You will encounter Jesus in the people living in the margins of Toronto, and rub shoulders with those who serve and walk with them. Be prepared to be called to action!” – Pete Olsen – MCC Tools Director

We ask that participants are flexible and available to help in whatever ways required.
