There is no age requirement for following Christ.

 

 

We believe that youth in Canada need to rise up to the challenge of saying “Yes” to Jesus wherever, whenever and whatever He calls us to do. In fact, around the world, many youth are being persecuted for their faith in Christ because they refuse to back down in the face of pressure, but courageously choose to be obedient to Christ. We can learn from their examples. Check out the resources below to find out more. If you want to talk to someone about how your youth group can learn more about the persecuted church, drop us a line at youth@odcan.org and we’d love to help!

WHAT NOW? HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED

"Give?!  I don't have gold bars hiding under my bed!", you may say. Probably not. BUT a small amount can still make a big difference. Maybe you can for-go that Big Mac you were planning this week, or the movie ticket.

 

If you are unable to donate, consider fundraising! We have some great fundraising ideas -- some that you can do on your own, and some that we help organise!

Have you ever received a card or letter in the mail from someone that was unexpected? Felt pretty good, didn't it? We all like getting those little gestures that people actually care and are thinking of us.

 

So why not send a small note to Christians that are suffering because of their faith? Many times, they feel isolated and alone and are unaware that many people are praying for them. Could you let them know that you are thinking of them? It's really easy to do and takes very little time.
