About the Church Plant
WADI Church is a place to have godly fellowship and receive dynamic and sound biblical teaching. WADI (meaning oasis or valley in Arabic), is a fellowship geared toward reaching the lost with the saving message of Jesus Christ.
We seek to show the “door of hope” (Hosea 2:15) to those who are living in the darkness of this troubled world, specifically those within our community of Mississauga. We welcome anyone to our fellowship, though we gear our outreach toward Muslims from the Arab world. We offer studies in English and Arabic.
– For those who have recently come to faith and are in discipleship.
– For more open doors in the Muslim communities.
– For our family to stay strong and focused on Him when the work gets discouraging.
– For our core group and their growth in Him.
We are always looking for churches, groups and individuals to come and help in the outreach! If you are interested in ministering to Muslims and want to come see/help WADI Church by working alongside us for a short-term trip, please email us, and let’s talk!
There are numerous ways to help a church plant. Please refer to NAMB’s website for the official policy statement concerning providing for church plants.
