Thank you for registering with us.

Despite Covid-19, SOAR’s Core Values remain important: Growing in intimacy with Jesus, Knowing God’s heart for the world, and Going and joining in God’s mission. We believe that not only is this still possible at such a time as this, but that it has become even more necessary to love our communities during this time (while honouring protocols). The church carries this beautiful gospel message of hope beyond our physical limitations. Join us for SOAR Ontario 2022 and explore how you might bring this message of hope to your local community and encounter Jesus in your own life.

The church TOGETHER encountering Jesus and His heart for mission!

July 2-10, 2022

WHY SOAR?


70% of young adults are leaving the church


Of those staying in the church 90% have done some kind of mission outreach.


Local Ministries need our support


SOAR programs around North America have been working with local ministries for over 25 years.


The Church needs to come TOGETHER.


SOAR is a partnership with the local church and brings churches together for worship, teaching, community & ministry.
You’ll be amazed
at what God can do
in you and through you 
in a 10 days.

How do I join?

Step #1
Gather your SOAR team

Read More
  • SOAR is meant to be experienced as a team. Every individual will experience Jesus different through SOAR, but much of the ministry and processing happens as a team unit. 

  • Do you have a passion for mission and hope that it will grow in your own church? Tap a few people on the shoulder and invite them to come on SOAR with you.

  • A SOAR team can be any combination of youth, young adults, families, singles and seniors but all with a heart to encounter Jesus and His Mission. Teams can range in size from 3 - 30+ people. A lot of the teams that come are youth groups, but SOAR is not only meant for youth. SOAR exists to help all the churches get connected with Jesus and local missions. Because of the intensity of SOAR both spiritually and emotionally we recommend that no one under the age of 13 come unless accompanied by a parent or guardian to help them process their experience.

  • Signing up your team helps the SOAR leadership prepare and plan for this year’s SOAR program. See the details below for the early registration deadline. Click this button to start your registration process. The team leader will have to start the registration process but then everyone from the group will have to individually submit their own registrations.

Step #3
Prepare to come on SOAR

Read More
As you prepare your team for SOAR here are some steps to getting ready:
    1. Raise the finances: Each group has a different way of raising the amount needed for SOAR so as a team you can decide how you want to do this. The amount for SOAR is a donation so you will receive a tax receipt for your payment. 

    2. Meet as a team: It is good to meet a couple of times before SOAR to get to know each other better and get a better understanding of what to expect on SOAR.

    3. Find a mentor: We recommend that everyone coming on SOAR have someone to be able to process both the preparation for SOAR and debrief their experience. 

      Also here is a document for more information.

Questions about SOAR

Will this work for my group?

We strive to make SOAR accessible to all ages and group makeup. There are bursaries available for those that don’t have the financial resources. We desire for you to encounter Jesus’ heart for mission and will work with you to set up a ministry that suits your group.
Connect with an experienced SOAR Leader

No one can answer your questions better than an experienced SOAR leader. They have worked through all the questions that you will likely have and have a passion to share about their experience. Contact me and I will connect you with an experienced leader that has led a group similar to yours.
