When a new ambassador or high commissioner arrives in Ottawa, we like to schedule a courtesy call to introduce ourselves and present the services and practical resources that the Christian Embassy offers.
Contact us if you are interested in receiving a courtesy visit.
Through our networking luncheons and dinners, the Christian Embassy provides a platform for more than 100 diplomats, parliamentarians and business leaders to make meaningful connections that inform and inspire. You will have the opportunity to hear a Christian leader talk about their professional experience and how a personal relationship with God impacts their personal and professional life.
The roundtable luncheons organized by the Christian Embassy facilitate the interactions of six to eight diplomats with one or more senior members of Parliament. The roundtables give diplomats the opportunity to share their country’s perspective on specific areas of mutual interest with the member of Parliament and to glean helpful ideas from one another.
Since 1998, the Christian Embassy has taken over 170 ambassadors and high commissioners from 92 different nations on three-day business tours to different Canadian cities. These tours provide you valuable opportunities to: – discover and enjoy Canadian innovation, culture and hospitality
– expand your network of Canadian contacts
– promote business and economic opportunities in your country
The English as a Second Language (ESL) classes offered by the Christian Embassy are oriented to diplomats and are designed to give students practice in written and oral comprehension with an emphasis on oral expression. We cover a wide variety of discussion topics, from our professional and personal lives and the classes are oriented toward diplomats’ schedules. Faith and Bible stories are important components of our program, because we seek to inspire people with the person and values of Jesus.
The highlight of the year is our Christmas Dinner, which brings together leaders from across Canada. Diplomats, parliamentarians, business leaders and their guests are invited to begin celebrating the Christmas season by enjoying a festive meal, live seasonal music and an inspirational guest speaker.
