The Diocese of the Arctic is fundraising to create a Diocesan Youth Coordinator position. This person will reach out to youth across the Arctic to bring them the hope and light of the gospel within their context and culture.
“In…the Inuit homeland…the suicide rate among children and youth was 33 times higher than for the rest of Canada” (Statistics Canada, 2019)
God has already provided an Inuk man, Nick Kigeak, who is completing his training at the Arthur Turner Training School and has felt God’s call to share the gospel. His task will be to help churches across the North to establish places and groups for young people, and especially young men, to gather and hear the hope that we have in Jesus Christ. He’ll be involved in training leaders and mentoring youth.
If you give online before June 30, your gift will be increased with funds from the Anglican Foundation of Canada. Give through Canada Helps at this website: https://www.canadahelps.org/s/nbd4Cx and assign your donations to Nick Kigeak for Youth in the Arctic.
