What We Do
At On Eagle’s Wings we provide Christian education, pastoral care, worship and Bible study opportunities for individuals and groups living in some of the most remote communities in Northern Canada.
Every Summer, teams from across the USA volunteer their time and resources to travel to Northern Canada.
The First Nations & Inuit peoples delight in hosting small teams within their communities.
They look forward to receiving these visits each year, as teams bring encouragement and joy from “the South”.
This page describes a little more about what we do in the North.

We receive frequent requests from Native Indian (known as First Nations or Inuit) communities to facilitate Bible Camps for their children. Their desire is that their young people develop in spiritual maturity.
To that end we send teams of willing volunteers to run Bible Camps (also known as VBS or Vacation Bible School). Most Bible Camps run in the summer, although occasionally we run them at other times of the year. Click the image on the left to learn more about On Eagle’s Wings Bible Camps.
Our passion is to support and encourage Indigenous, First Nation and Inuit communities in their faith journey.
Spiritual transformation and healing are available to everyone.
We identify, train, encourage and mentor northern Christians for leadership and ministry within their own cultural and denominational traditions.
We Travel North
Northern Canada is a vast landscape, stretching from the Pacific, across the Arctic, to the Atlantic Ocean.
There are few roads. Many of the communities we visit are ‘fly in’ only, although some are accessible by Winter ‘ice roads’.

As an ecumenical ministry, we partner with churches across multiple denominations.
Whether supporting churches in the North, or working with congregations from the South, we remain faithful to our denominational backgrounds while being sensitive to the diverse culture and traditions of our northern brothers & sisters.
Youth & Young Adults
- The Power & Presence of Jesus
- Cultures & Worldview
Part of a mission is to provide a ministry of presence. In other words, we are committed to “being there” for the communities we support.
This means taking the time to journey with our northern friends.
We listen to each other’s stories. We eat together, laugh together, and cry together.
Living in isolated communities is difficult. We have been told our presence brings great comfort, puncturing the loneliness and sense of being forgotten.
At On Eagle’s Wings we walk in solidarity with our brothers and sisters, sharing the joys and sorrows of this life.
