What is the history of Engage Today?

Engage Today was first established in the year 2000 by Dr. David Robbins. We were formerly known as Advancing Indigenous Missions, birthed out of the vision and network of our sister agency in the USA, Advancing Native Missions. The passion of Engage Today, since the beginning, has been to partner with dynamic Christian leaders who are from and live among unreached people groups in order to advance the proclamation of the gospel among the least reached in the world.

How can I and/or my church get involved with a partner?

Engage Today is seeking to be a bridge between you and our partners. We offer opportunities to visit our partners on the ground and we seek to regularly bring our partners to Canada so that you can spend time with them, hear their stories, and get to know them. Visit Our Partners page on our website to reach out to our office to explore partnership.

How can we arrange for a speaker for a meeting or conference?

Would you like to have one of our partners or staff visit your church to share about the mission to the unreached? Visit our Contact page to get in touch with our office so that we can explore arranging those details.
