Be In Christ Church of Canada has been involved in supporting missionaries to Cuba since 1954 and the growth of the BIC Church of Cuba has been a story of dedication and faithfulness.
Today BIC Canada-Global maintains a vital partnership with the BIC Church of Cuba through leadership training, house church pastor support, and compassionate ministry by responding to material needs in the country.
The Canadian–Cuban Projects Team, is also a partner organization that provides funds and assistance for major projects in Cuba like the Leadership Training Conference Centre Project in Palmira. There are regular opportunities to participate on teams that travel to Cuba for hands-on partnership.
In the early 1980’s, when Be In Christ Church of Canada and BIC US felt God leading them to take the Gospel to some major urban areas in the world, our attention turned to Caracas, the capital city of Venezuela.
The first missionaries sent to Caracas, Gord and Susie Gilmore, were from Canada and arrived in 1982 to begin evangelism and church planting efforts. Other missionaries joined the team and three local churches were established. Today four local congregations are actively following Jesus and serving him in the midst of some challenging dynamics, economically, socially and politically.
BIC Canada-Global desires to renew and strengthen our relationship with the Brethren in Christ Church in Venezuela and looks forward to how God will guide us together in the years to come.
In 2015, the Nicaraguan Brethren in Christ Church celebrated their 50th Anniversary! Since the arrival of the first missionaries in 1965 the church has grown to over 3,500 members and gathers to worship and serve God through more than 110 local church families.
BIC Canada-Global partners with the Nicaraguan Brethren in Christ Church by supporting numerous special projects related to Leadership Training, Evangelism and Church Planting and Compassion Ministries.
Local Canadian Be in Christ churches have been active in sending short-term teams to Nicaragua where they have enjoyed meaningful Christian fellowship and the opportunity to support the Nicaraguan church in things like children’s ministry and construction projects.
A major project already underway is the construction of a National Church Conference Centre near to the city of Managua in an area known as San Antonio Sur. Various Be In Christ churches are helping support projects like these (Read the Case study of Wainfleet BIC & Westheights BIC involvement here >>).
