Spring is a season of renewal and growth. It’s also the perfect time of year to celebrate and raise awareness of The Presbyterian Church in Canada’s many mission programs at home here in Canada, and around the world.
As a denomination, we will join together on April 29th to pray for current and future mission staff, and all the programs and events that bring to life the fellowship and connection of our mission in Christ.
On this special day of celebration, prayer, and awareness, we will extend a warm welcome to the Rev. Deb Rapport, who works with ARISE ministries in downtown Toronto. She’s Community Chaplain and Executive Director of ARISE Ministry.
ARISE offers hope to those involved in the sex trade through providing outreach, case management, and pastoral care.
Deb is a minister of The Presbyterian Church in Canada and has been engaged in ministry with street-involved youth and women involved in the sex trade since 2007. She graduated from Vancouver School of Theology (M.Div, 2008) and Knox College (Th.M., 2016) and was ordained in 2010.
