At Varsity, our desire is to support and build relationships with a small number of faith-based ministries and the communities they serve. The Bible provides the foundation for missions at VBC: preach the Good news, follow Christ’s example (teach, preach, and heal), seek the good of the city, show mercy and justice for the oppressed, and understand that we are sent to the whole world (Matthew 4:23, Matthew 9:36 Jeremiah 29:7, Isaiah 58:6-11, Mark 16:15).
Located just outside Calgary, Camp Chestermere has been a vital part of our community for 60 years, providing a venue for recreational, spiritual and social interaction for kids. VBC has partnered with Camp Chestermere for over 30 years as a supporting church, sending many of our kids, youth, and young adults there to mentor and be mentored and have a fabulous time!
Dan and Bev Mayerle serve as field director alongside 23 missionary couples and singles as they disciple and gather among First Nation, Sikhs, and Muslim people across western Canada.
VBC is a supporting church of Rick McCallum and the Navigators ministry at the University of Calgary. We desire to help the U of C Navigators pursue their goal to "radically pursue being disciples of Jesus and making disciples for Christ's Kingdom!"
