Lost people matter to God, so they matter to us – and new churches are still the most effective way of reaching people for Jesus. The BCYD is passionately committed to starting new churches in communities throughout BC and the Yukon through our Momentum Network.
Life-giving churches often discover that their influence extends beyond the borders of their community and start new sites that are connected by vision and mission. The BCYD’s Momentum Network also helps churches expand their reach by starting new sites.
Assistant Superintendent for Multiplication
Len DenBraber has served churches in the BCYD since 1992, pastoring in Gibsons, Abbotsford, Kamloops and Victoria. He passionately believes that a Spirit-filled, Gospel-centred church is still the best place for people to discover the abundant life Jesus promised and that local churches can be catalysts for change in entire communities. Over the years, Len has been a champion of new ministry initiatives, church planting and multi-siting; and he’s had the privilege of coaching pastors to strengthen and multiply their ministries. Len and Leanne have been married since 1991 and have three adult children and three grandchildren.
