The Leadership of Langham Canada
Langham Canada is a charitable organization, run primarily by volunteers committed to nurturing national movements for biblical preaching around the world; multiplying the creation and distribution of evangelical literature; and strengthening the theological training of pastors and leaders by qualified evangelical teachers.
Langham Canada’s greatest leadership comes from the hundreds of individuals and the churches who embrace the vision of equipping churches for mission and maturity in Christ all around the world. These Langham champions share the good news of a vital ministry that is building up Christians in an era where many churches in Canada are struggling to survive. They distribute newsletters and bring their home congregations on board with a ministry that encourages them as much as it encourages growth in other countries. We are thankful.
