We at Calvary Chapel Montreal Regeneration, prioritize evangelism as a ministry and encourage one another to unashamedly share the entirety of the Gospel through weekly street evangelism, community events, and personal relationships as led by the Holy Spirit. Our desire is for all to discover the peace, comfort and protection that comes from knowing Christ, as promised by our Lord (John 14).
7 903 001 people live in province of Quebec.1 988 243 people live in the city of Montreal. And, though the majority of residents identify themselves as "Christian", those who consider themselves to be actively pursuing after a life reflective of Christ's teaching are few. In fact, less than 1% of the French population are thought to be evangelical. Given that Montreal is the second largest French-speaking city in the world (after Paris), the hunger for true salvation and proper discipleship is real among those who consider it to be their home.
Quebec ranks number one in Canada for child poverty, suicide, divorce, unwed live-in couples and illegitimate birth. The Quebecois is the largest unreached people group in North America.
There are less Evangelical Christians in Quebec than in Cuba.
The society in Quebec is post-Catholic and yet anything that is not Catholic in Quebec is seen as a cult. In radically rejecting The Catholic Church, the spiritual search of the Quebecois became very eclectic and non-Religious, resulting in a post-modernism more advanced in Quebec than in any other society in North America.
Today there is less than one evangelical church for every 11000 people. To have a church for every 1500 people, over 4000 new churches would need to be planted.
Further still, Montreal embraces over a 100 different ethnic groups; indeed, just over 34% of the population cites a language that is neither French nor English as their mother tongue. As such, the potential that Montreal "born again" Christians have to carry out the great commission as explicated in Matthew 28:19 and Mark 16:15 is far reaching.
