After being forced to cancel in 2021, Missionfest Manitoba is back with a number of options to inspire and encourage everyone into becoming more active in God's mission.
The event takes place from Friday, April 29, through Sunday, May 1, at Church of the Rock in Winnipeg (1397 Buffalo Place). Over 100 exhibitors will be on hand with booths showing the work that they do to make Jesus known right here in Manitoba and around the globe.
If you can't get there in person, join the online event!
Donate to MfM online: Tom Castor from Missionfest says that the organization has faced a number of challenges due to the pandemic. MfM relies solely on the prayers and financial support from churches, businesses and individuals to be able to carry on with the work they have been called to do.
