Serving and inspiring leaders
For more than three decades, the Christian Embassy has been a bridge between leaders in Ottawa, across Canada and from around the world. Special initiatives such as luncheons, roundtables, individual meetings and visits with ambassadors to diverse businesses across Canada give leaders the opportunity to see how the values of Jesus bring light to professional, personal and spiritual facets of life.

"The Christian Embassy's work to provide friendship, support and spiritual encouragement to members of Parliament, senators and members of the diplomatic corps is a significant contribution to the well-being of these national and international leaders."
Our volunteers represent diverse skills and life experiences. Some are developing experience for their future careers, while others are living generously in their retirement.
All you need is a willingness to help people, a little time to share and a desire to challenge yourself. With God’s enabling, your gift of time and energy can make an eternal difference in the life of a leader.
"The Christian Embassy provides me and other MPs with a needed personal focus and an outlet to serve. Their team helps me make connections with ambassadors as part of my government service. They also offer opportunities for me to grow in my relationship with God as I reach out to encourage leaders in Ottawa and overseas. I doubt the Christian Embassy is aware of the full extent of their positive impact."
"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."

As a result of the public health policy response to COVID-19, the global economy is experiencing the largest contraction in GDP in modern history. This has thrust the global economy into an economic recession/depression. Governments and central banks have responded with massive spending programs funded by record levels of debt coupled with an enormous expansion in the money supply.
Jonathan will be discussing some of the impacts and potential unintended
consequences of these dramatic actions. He will address the questions:
What are some of the impacts and potential unintended consequences of these dramatic actions?
As decision makers what approach might we take?
How do we begin economic and spiritual restoration?
"We look forward to serving you! We invite you to join in our initiatives and see the values of Jesus bring light to the professional, personal and spiritual facets of life. Interactions with leaders from Canada and around the globe will also sharpen you as a leader."

Do you feel like you are rowing against swirling global currents? Attempting to find your way with the wind and rain unceasing and hard pressed against you?
