Dwayne’s passion is to see existing churches inspired to missional thinking that results in action and new expressions of church. Dwayne and Irma were involved in planting a church in Edmonton, and shepherded West Portal (MB) Church, Saskatoon, through daughtering two churches. He is convinced that when disciples are living out the missional picture of Luke 10, God’s Spirit will “connect us to people he’s at work in around the community.”
C2C regional directors work as a team under director Gord Fleming. They identify, assess, train, and coach church planters; represent and promote church plants to churches in their regions; fundraise; serve on new church task forces. C2C is an MB-based interdenominational church planting network
