Igloolik Building Project

The Manitoba-Saskatchewan Conference has a vision to reach the North for Jesus.  Our congregations are growing in Nunavut.  It is our goal to establish a lay-led church in each of the 25 communities of that territory.  To support this vision and the existing work, we are launching a fundraising campaign to build a Church/Community Centre in Igloolik, home to our largest Nunavut congregation. It would serve as our Centre of Operations in Nunavut, provide a place of worship, and double as a community centre during the week.

Building a Dream

This church is the dream of Ilisapi Angutimarik, a recent Inuk convert to Adventism and co-leader of the congregation. She desires to share the love of her Savior with her community, but they face skepticism. A community building hosting beneficial programs like a soup kitchen or community events will soften hearts and open minds. Since building in the Arctic is very expensive, constructing the proposed 1,750 square foot facility will cost nearly $1 million.

The Proposal

The Conference is partnering with multiple Adventist church entities and ministries for a funding proposal as follows:

Man-Sask Conference  $150,000

It Is Written Canada $100,000

Voice of Prophecy $100,000

SDACC $150,000

General Conference $500,000

Total $1,000,000

Sabbath in Igloolik

August 3rd, 2016|0 Comments

The long summers are coming to an end here in Igloolik, Nunavut. One of the privileges of living in the high arctic is the midnight sun. The 24-hour sunlight illuminates the arctic landscape and time seems to be endless. When I look out the window you see children playing out at three in the morning and during the day they sleep. The circadian rhythm of children and adults in most […]
