Serving in:  the GTA and Ontario
With: OM 
(Operation Mobilization Canada)


Richard is an evangelist reaching out to people with the Good News of Jesus in the GTA.  Richard’s particular passion is to see “cousins” come to know Jesus and other unreached people groups.  His vision is to win them for Christ and to disciple them.  His vision is also to train others to do the same.  With so many unreached people groups coming to Canada, especially to the GTA (Greater Toronto Area), it is critical to tell them the Good News. 

Richard, and those working with him, reach out to unreached people in the GTA through a variety of means including – street evangelism, book tables in many places - visiting mosques and temples, getting involved in sports events (cricket and soccer), giving away books and other literature and DVD’s, and using every possible means and opportunity to let people know about the love of God for them. 

Richard volunteers part-time as a chaplain at Toronto Pearson Airport.


How can you help?:

  • Pray.  Contact Richard to join the Prayer Partner list and to receive prayer updates. 
  • Get involved.  Join one of the outreach teams for as much time as you can give.  You will be trained and guided to be effective in reaching unreached people in the GTA.  Step out of your comfort zone.  Take a risk for the Lord.
