The Embassy, Humber College

Trevor Gingerich

The Embassy exists to help students discover hope, purpose, and life to its fullest through the message, mission, and living person of Jesus Christ.  It's a place where students can gather to worship regularly and be exposed to biblical teaching that's applicable to their surroundings and pertinent to thier unique stage in life.  Although studies show that large numbers of Christian young people turn away from faith during post-secondary education, Trevor is actively working to reverse these statistics. He believes that our Canadian colleges and universities represent mission fields that require missionaries.
