Opportunities for Diplomats
One of Canada’s ambassadors serving overseas cited his appreciation for the spiritual availability offered by the Christian Embassy staff, adding that he takes advantage of their services whenever he can.
We also offer initiatives for spouses of heads of mission and other diplomats. We hope to serve you and help you succeed in your mandate as you represent your country in Canada.
"I desire to be involved with the seminars and luncheons of the Christian Embassy because of the important life issues presented and the opportunities to meet people of faith."
"I think every ambassador and high commissioner should connect with the Christian Embassy. I have found their team to be very helpful to my work as an ambassador for networking, because of the many people they know. With their help, I also better understand the Bible."
"Everything that the Christian Embassy offers is excellent and very helpful. I am informed on very important topics and feel safe to express my opinions on these matters. Not only do you inspire us, but you help us to identify which priorities are truly important."
