The IMPACT 2018 mission is a reboot of CCO’s traditional parish based mission projects. For two months you’ll live in community with your other brothers or sisters on mission, and work full time in one of two parishes in Vancouver.  Over the course of mission you will receive regular training to be built up into a leader who not only can share their faith, but a leader who is able to train others how to do the same. As you grow in your ability to share your faith and train others, you’ll begin working with parishioners, leading them through some of CCO’s evangelistic materials, and then training them to use these tools themself.

This mission will equip you to be a missionary for life. You won’t always be a student on campus, but even after you graduate you’ll continue to be a part of a local parish. The tools you receive over these two month will be a tremendous gift to you, and to whatever parish you are involved in after you move on from CCO.

Your experience in using CCO’s Ultimate Relationship booklet, and Discovery Faith study will be taken into account when considering your application to this mission.

Mission will begin when you arrive in Vancouver for our mission orientation. Orientation will be an important time of team bonding, praying for our mission, and to be equipped with the tools needed for mission.

The first aspect of our mission will be evangelization. We will spend 5 weeks leading CCO’s small group Discovery faith study in the parish. Over the course of this study, parishioners will have an opportunity to hear the Gospel clearly and simply, and will be given a chance to respond to Christ’s invitation.

The second aspect of our mission will be discipleship and building leaders. Our desire is to leave a legacy in the parish we are working with, and so we will take the time to training them how to lead the Discovery, and how to share their faith in a clear and simply way. Our desire is that we would be equipping people in this parish to be missionary for life!

Other possible mission activities may include leading a parish worship night, working with the poor in the city, door to door outreach, and hosting a Nightfever event. More details about this mission will be posted as more aspects of the mission are planned.

“I learned that I am personally called to mission and evangelization. I knew that there was a general call for everyone to be missionary, but this year I learned in a deeper way that I am a part of that.” —Impact Participant

“A highlight of being on IMPACT was seeing the radical transformation of our parish… Lives, marriages and familes were revitalized as they allowed Christ to enter fully into their lives, and from that choice came abounding love: love of God, love of self, love of others.” —Impact Participant

IMPACT 2018 will cost approximately $3300 CND. This money will cover the costs for:

  • Orientation & training
  • Accommodations in Vancouver
  • Most meals

The cost does not include:

  • Travel to and from Vancouver

Each CCO Missions participant has the opportunity to fundraise the entire cost of their mission trip through tax-deductible donations. Consider this: fundraising allows people who may not have the opportunity to travel on a mission project to participate in this essential work by donating towards your participation. In another sense, “some give by going, while others go by giving.” Allowing others to support us through their financial commitments and prayers is essential to the success of CCO Missions!

There is a $300 non-refundable payment due upon acceptance, the remainder of the cost must be paid according to the payment schedule that you will receive in your acceptance package.

Finally, we’re here to help you! We know support raising can seem intimidating. In you acceptance package we’ll provide you with a number of tools that will help be more confident in raising support. And of course, you can always get in touch with us by email at missions@cco.ca, or by phone, 613-736-1999

We lead evangelization missions around the world.
