For over 45 years, Ambassadors For Christ in Canada has been ministering to students on campuses throughout Ontario, promoting contagious student witnesses, and aiming to spark a movement throughout Canada.
It began in the 60's and 70's when many Chinese overseas students flocked into Canadian universities to study. The harvest was plentiful and workers were needed for harvest in His field.
The vision of an organization ministering to the spiritual needs of these Chinese students led to the founding of Ambassadors For Christ In Canada by Rev. Stephen Knights.
In 1972, AFC was officially registered as a non-profit Christian organization with the government of Canada.
In the 80's & 90's...
During the 80's and 90's, Chinese immigration continued and many Chinese families came to Canada. The challenges of meeting the needs of the younger generation has been continually growing.
AFC IN VANCOUVER
By the 90's, a national student movement was initiated in Western Canada, and AFC responded by sending staff to Vancouver where an AFC Student Ministry was started.
Under the guidance of our gracious Lord, the staff and the ministry of AFC have been continually evolving; working to be in the forefront in adapting to the changing society and cultures, connecting the campus and the church.
