We are the Outreach International Interns and we are offering a $1000 college scholarship to a Spec camper (or group of campers). We are hosting a YouTube contest with our new campaign “Small Change for Big Change” and we want to see what good the youth can do for the world.


On June 11, 2010 the Canada West Mission held a Young Adult Retreat at the Hills of Peace Campground. Guest Ministry for the event was President Steve Veazey. We talked about the importance of participation in the life of the Community of Christ and how we could best serve the mission of Jesus Christ in our respective communities.

The World Cafe, a conversation hosting site, opened the scope of the discussion. We welcomed  two new Young Adults to the Community of Christ who had a global perspective, being from Jamaica and Guyana recently settling in Provost, AB. They also brought an interesting view having only participated in one other church event - the Spiritual Retreat, and one church service in Ribstone. The weekend was truly exciting and spirit filled as the Young Adults opened themselves to becoming immersed in the visioning process and participating fully in congregational life.

Another first occurred, according to President Veazey as two Young Adults, Jae Senga and Amanda Loucks became engaged.  Congratulations Jae and Amanda!
