Cathedral youth called to mission abroad

Matt Allen has been a regular member of our congregation this past year and is preparing to serve God in a mission abroad with IVCF. He is self financing his salary for this mission and the Missions Committee would like to share his request for support.

“I am coming on staff with Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship. Over the past year I have been working with Inter-Varsity in Fredericton. But now I am feeling like God is calling me to an International placement with Inter-Varsity. I am looking at a placement in either Martinique or France to work with the local student groups and see how they can grow and make a larger impact on their campuses and in their countries. Right now both of those locations have less than five staff working there. So I want to partner with them and see how we can grow. Right now I am fundraising for my salary and my budget costs. I am looking to fundraise $40,000. Would you be willing to support me either financially or through prayer. If you would like to join my newsletter email me at [email protected] and if you would like to financially support me you can at ivcf.ca/donate/mallen” – Matt Allen
