  • move from a focus on self to a focus on others
  • apply Bible thoughts to their lives as they learn to pray, give, and help others.
  • and their families learn of ways to give their time, talents, and money

Missions Area: Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Calgary, also known as “the Stampede City,” is known as one of the richest and largest cities in Canada. Located in the eastern foothills of the Canadian Rockies and  the confluence of the Elbow and Bow Rivers, its economy is driven by skiing, tourism, ranches, and white collar business.

Calgary is famous for the Calgary Stampede that takes place there in July. The 10-day rodeo and festival stampede is one of largest in North America and draws approximately one million people to the area each year.

Calgary climate is typically cold and damp. Calgarians expect snow 8–10 months of the year. As the weather warms, Calgarians are ready to be outside in the summer. Almost everyone speaks English, but almost everything in Calgary is labeled in both English and French, the two official languages of Canada. Canadians have fun names for their money: dollar coins are called Loonies, and two-dollar coins are called Toonies.

According to the North American Mission Board, only 5.2 percent of Calgary’s residents are followers of Jesus, and there is only one Canadian National Baptist church for every 44,586 people. Join with NAMB in praying that God will call more Christ-followers to begin planting churches in beautiful Calgary.
