Giving to CBOQ

Canadian Baptists of Ontario and Quebec exists to equip our churches and leaders to engage in their mission from God in their community.

Together we’re starting new churches and developing fresh expressions of the Gospel. We’re helping churches respond to rapid change in our culture and communities through coaching, workshops and resources. We’re providing grants to help congregations explore new missional ideas and opportunities.

Advancing our Mission

To achieve our vision and advance our mission, CBOQ provides resources, events, training, services and more. And, we share the stories of your successes with the rest of the family to encourage you, share your ideas, build connections and let you know what God is doing in and through our churches. Our teams are dedicated to serving all the parts of your church in different ways.

Thank you for giving faithfully to your church, and for continuing your church’s financial partnership with us. Through you and your church, CBOQ can continue to serve its churches as we shine brightly with the light of Jesus all across Ontario and Quebec.

Church Life & Leadership

Church Life & Leadership equips and enhances the capacity of church leaders to build and disciple thriving congregations. 

Through accreditation, clergy care support, church planting, grants, training, partnership opportunities, resources, events and more, the Church Life and Leadership team is strengthening and expanding the ways in which CBOQ supports its family of churches.

Communications & Member Care

Communications and Member Care builds and strengthens a sense of family and community between CBOQ churches and with CBOQ as an organization through sharing stories, information and promoting opportunities for cooperation and collaboration. We champion the vision, mission and values of CBOQ to our member churches, staff and volunteers and we ensure we have the people and funding in place to advance our mission.

Next Generation Ministries

Next Generation Ministries exists to serve God by mobilizing and developing youth and children’s workers and their churches across Ontario and Quebec. Through CBOQ Youth, CBOQ Children and Family, Camp Kwasind and alongside Christian agencies, we effectively engage children, youth and their families with the person and message of Jesus, empowering them in their journey towards being fully-committed Christ-followers and reaching their God-given potential.

In addition, we ensure sound governance and annual audit and regulatory compliance.

Giving as a Church

It is only through the contributions of our family of churches that we can fulfill our mission to equip our churches and leaders. We ask that churches include CBOQ as a budget line each year and consider the level of giving God is calling your church to give. Through your church’s financial partnership, we are able to provide care, resources and assistance to your fellow Canadian Baptist congregations.

Giving as an Individual

In addition to the financial partnership of our churches, CBOQ relies on the faithful giving of individuals (over and above their regular giving to their local church) who believe in the vision and mission of CBOQ. With your support, we can resource our churches well for the sake of the Kingdom.
