About

SERVE is the new name of Missions Fest Vancouver. In many ways it is a traditional missions conference...with a twist. Considering the discipleship crisis that we are experiencing here in Canada we ask all our partner agencies to orient their engagement with attendees and churches towards helping people grow as missional disciples of Jesus.  

CREATE is our conference for creatives that helps facilitate the growth of a community of generative Christian artists with the goal of seeing them become missional disciples. It features the CREATE Moving Pictures Festival.

What people are saying about SERVE:

I appreciated every organization that showed up for this conference, especially during the current pandemic. If they showed up, I wanted to know who they were and what they were about. SERVE was an educational experience.  I learned about organizations that I didn’t know about.  It really showed me how little I know about the work that is going on in the world.

A wide variety of topics and ministries locally and globally. Excellent presenters and content. Opportunity to connect with a large number of organizations. Being online it is available to people across the country - those not being able to get to a conference like this.
