Here are some of the ways to get involved locally and make a difference. The outreach programs are organized by TWU students.
Students for Life: Awareness & compassionate response to the issues relating to the sanctity of life.
Street Light: This Friday night street ministry, with the Union Gospel Mission, in downtown Vancouver is all about building relationships– meeting people where they are and sharing God’s love with them there.
Building 272 Youth Drop-In: Building 272 is given life each week as TWU students create a safe and fun environment for youth. Whether it comes through the food, the games, or the friendship the youth are encouraged.
Rahab Ministry: In partnership with Linwood House Ministries, a team of TWU women provide a sacred space for the abused and sexually exploited women in inner-city Vancouver: a place to sit, rest, be safe, comforted, and heard.
DRIME (Disciples Ready in Mobile Evangelism): A team, equipped and trained by Power to Change, share choreographed dramas that each highlight the healing work and Good News of Jesus.
GO (God’s Own) Prison Ministry: A team of TWU students visit the male inmates at Fraser Regional Correctional Centre. While there, they not only provide a listening ear, but also a time of worship and Bible study.
Youth Extreme: TWU students run an inner-city youth group in partnership with New Beginnings Church. With encouragement, commitment and open hearts TWU students provide a consistent support to the at-risk youth.
WORKCore (Workers Offering Real Kindness): With willing hands and open hearts these students pull weeds, paint fences, and rake leaves on Saturday afternoons as a free service to people within the Langley community.
KidZone: KidZone is a Saturday morning kids club that offers breakfast, games, crafts, songs and stories for kids aged 5-12. This club is organized by Union Gospel Mission and is located in Vancouver’s downtown eastside.
Langley Lodge: TWU students bring respect and dignity to their friends at Langley Lodge, by hosting sing-along times, playing games or simply offering a listening ear.
NightShift: NighShift is a comprehensive street ministry that is seeking to bring healing to those suffering in Surrey. Each week students work with NighShift to bring dignity and restoration to their friends in Surrey.
SHOUT (Students Helping Others Use Technology): This on-campus service club offers free technical support to any and all students who require their assistance.
The Fall Workday: Over 300 TWU students gather rain or shine to serve Langley residents. Whether it is in their homes or in their gardens students give freely to single parents, the elderly, and all those in need.
Plus More…outside of these opportunities TWU students find themselves involved in a number of other services. We are always looking for new ways to get involved and just need your willingness and passion to do it.back to top
