Get to know the Global Workers that we support
Bud and Donna Gillam head up the Canadian team of Mission Possible
In Haiti, the ministry now includes eight Christian schools (pre-K through 13th grade), a church at each school, discipleship classes, a Bible Training Center, and a Vocational School. We currently have schools in the communities of Montrouis, St. Marc, Degeance, LaHatte, Lanzac, Dupin, Chardene, and Deyemon.
On the Dominican side of the island, we have a thriving Spanish church and Haitian Creole church, as well as a modern educational facility in Barahona serving students in pre-K through 8th grade.
Mission Possible USA and Mission Possible Canada work together in joint ministry, with members of each Board serving on a management committee which oversees the international work.

Don & Marie-José Mann
Don and Marie-José are founders of two ministries - Revitalizing the Church (RTC) and Chitenge Creations. RTC is intentional about coming alongside the established church and emerging leaders world-wide to revive, renew and restore the relevance of the Acts 2 church. Chitenge Creations is a micro-enterprise sewing project that provides African women with sustainable business opportunities.
In January 2014, Don and MJ relocated from Kitwe, Zambia to Pretoria, South Africa where they have established a Center for Leadership Integrity (CLI). The vision of CLI is to raise a Biblically centered, Holy Spirit empowered, integrity driven generation of leaders on the Continent of Africa - "increasing the integrity of the leader will increase the capacity of the church".
As Canadian based Global Workers, Don and MJ spend at least six months of the year in Africa. The rest of the year, they travel across Canada, and other parts of the world, speaking at seminars, conferences, camps and churches.

Bill and Shirley Pipke
Bill and Shirley Pipke have led some of the strongest missions churches in Canada. In the past 20 years they have helped to plant over 500 churches. They believe in equipping the local Canadian church to partner with leaders and church planters at home and around the world. The question is not just what can the Canadian church do for missions but what does missions do for the Canadian church?
As a pastor, Bill Pipke invested his church in equipping leaders in Cuba, China, Ukraine, Indonesia, Liberia and Zambia to transform their communities. The call of God to serve as global workers has led the Pipkes into a strategic partnership with Don and M.J. Mann. Together the Pipkes and Manns are developing two Africa wide ministries.
BCA (Bridging China and Africa)
BCA brings the Canadian, Zambian, and Chinese church together to reach the more than a million Chinese workers living in Africa. BCA will meet their social and spiritual needs through a cultural center. The dream is to replicate the BCA ministry strategy across Africa.
CLI (Commissioning a Lifestyle of Integrity)
CLI is a vision to raise a movement of integrity across Africa that will counter the epidemic of corruption. An integrity driven generation of leaders in business, church, arts, education, professions, family and government will transform the culture.
