Cross Cultural Partners

These are the Cross Cultural Partners we are directly involved with supporting.



We support commissioned field staff of the Canadian Baptist Ministries (CBM) through our denomination. 


CBM is a global mission organization committed to sharing God’s love through word and deed. We believe that God brings healing to a broken world through local churches. With over 140 years of experience, we have seen that words and deeds intertwined in Christian community work together to bear witness to God’s transforming grace. Together in partnership, we seek to bring hope, healing and reconciliation to all people.

Here are some of the good folks we support directly:

Through a series of events, Duane and Carin, in consultation with CBM leadership, began to explore the global movement of marketplace ministry and began to receive requests to work in S.E. Asia. After a season of discernment it was decided that a transition was needed and in July 2015 the Guthries transitioned to Manila, Philippines to be closer to the partners and staff in the region. - See more at: http://www.cbmin.org/who-we-are/field-staff/duane-carin-guthrie/#sthash.UwHj1ukO.dpuf

Ken & Wendy Derksen

The Derksens joined CBM as Field Staff in Rawanda in 2014, and will be working primarily on capacity building with CBM's partner the Association of Baptist Churches of Rawanda (AEBR)







Janice & Bill Dyck
CBM believes the timing was God-ordained for Bill and Janice Dyck's next assignment, as our oldest partner, the Bolivian Baptist Union (UBB), continued to voice its desire to equip and mentor their leaders, especially in their understanding and practice of integral mission – sharing God’s love through word and deed.  As a seasoned couple with experience in a wide range of ministry contexts, the Dycks will be an excellent resource to the UBB.



We support local ministries such as Young Life as well.

Since Young Life of Canada began in 1954, staff and volunteers have been leaving their adult “comfort zone” to meet teens on “their turf”. You will find Young Life leaders wherever kids are found… cheering in the stands at a hockey game, encouraging them in school activities, or hanging out at the nearest coffee shop or skate park . Young Life communities strive to create meaningful, mentoring relationships between leaders and teens and to create spaces where teens are listened to, and where questions of life and faith can be discussed.
