Eastern Region Retreat

In a world of hyper-individualism where the cultural mantra is “you do you and I’ll do me”, we take a distinctly counter-cultural approach. Our choices and life circumstances don’t define us. Rather our relationship with Jesus does. We are children of the Living God, one in His name, bound together by His Spirit. We are Undivided.

Achieving our mission of “Every Young Person Fully Alive in Christ,” has never been more difficult: over the past 18 months, COVID has significantly impacted our ability to build relationships with young people and share the love of Jesus with them. But we are reminded of Jesus’ own words, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”  [Jn. 16:33 NIV]. And so, we are Undeterred.

Dustin Boreland from Reach Montreal, will dive into our theme of Undivided & Undeterred, and how our community can come together and be focused on our mission, even in such divisive times.

Main Speaker

Dustin Boreland

Dustin Boreland is the lead pastor of Reach Montreal, a church plant in the West Island of Montreal. Dustin and his wife Racquel, along with their two children Gabriel and Raina moved from Toronto in 2016 with a heart to plant a church that engages the unchurched and dechurched of Quebec with the Gospel. After two years of developing their core team, they merged with West Island Baptist Church, a historic congregation to revitalize, replant, and relaunch as one new church together. Before relocating to Montreal, Dustin and Racquel served as foster parents to more than 15 teenage boys and are excited to foster or adopt in the future. Dustin is passionate about the intersection of the Gospel and culture, and equipping the local church for mission, and can be found overindulging on coffee, books, and hip hop.
