Climbing For Christ Canada was represented by coordinator Brandy Everts and member SheriLyn Fehr at Mission Fest Alberta 2012 on Feb. 24-26, 2012 in Edmonton, AB.
Mission Fest is an annual three-day family missions conference with the purpose to inform, celebrate, and challenge believers to pray, give, send and go. This year's theme was, “The World is My Neighbour.” C4C Canada, along with 170 other exhibitors, shared their passion and mission focus to an estimated 20,000 people who came asking God to stir their hearts and point them in His direction for their lives.

“I have been waiting for a ministry like this to start in Canada!” exclaimed one individual who came to visit the C4C booth over the weekend. This one person's passion was shared by many who stopped to learn more and who want to be involved with Climbing For Christ.
Throughout the weekend C4C Canada was able to connect with many soon-to-be-members; pastors who are wanting us to share with their congregations; other ministries which are exploring the idea of partnering and working with us in the mission field; Bible colleges that want to connect their students with our ministry; and nationals and missionaries of other countries who want us to begin to work with the unreached people groups in the mountainous villages where they are from. Needless to say, the weekend was packed full of God-ordained surprises.
Climbing For Christ Canada has started off with a bang and we will see all that God has in store for our members and His ministry!
