Dr. Joshua Bogunjoko
Dr. Joshua grew up in Nigeria in a family that mixed Christianity with animism, while his wife, Dr. Joanna Bogunjoko, grew up with Muslim and nominal Christian people. Joshua studied pharmacology at the University of Port and then medicine, graduating in medicine in 1988. It was in his first year of medical school that he felt the Lord’s call to missions, and it was then that he committed his heart to serve the Lord in cross-cultural missions.

The couple started their ministry at a mission hospital in Galmi, Niger. Joshua worked with an HIV/AIDS project and Joanna in a Nutrition Rehabilitation Project. In 1999, they went to Briercrest Seminary where Joshua earned a MA in Leadership and Management. On their return to Galmi, Joshua took on the position of Chief Medical Officer and then Director of the hospital. He filled this role until their move to the SIM International Office in 2006 when Joshua became the SIM Deputy International Director for Europe and West Africa.  Today Dr. Bogunjoko is the International Director for SIM.
Joshua and Joanna are blessed with a daughter and a son.  

Their ministry scripture is Psalm 67, particularly verses 1-2, “May God be gracious to us and bless us and make His face shine upon us, that Your ways may be known on earth, Your salvation among all nations.”

Missions Heritage
Birthed in our distinctive missions heritage, Prairie's annual missions conference focuses on the outward commitment of the Christian to answer the call of Christ. Our goals for the Conference are to challenge all members of the Prairie community:

  • To embrace the biblical message of the global mission of God through anointed preaching. God’s mission originates in His nature, finds initiative in His divine will, and is expressed in the mandate of Christ to “go and make disciples of all nations.” God has called, equipped, and empowered the Church to participate as His servant in the responsibility and privilege of His mission.
  • To expose the community to the current works of God in global mission. God is continuing in His mission today through the worldwide witness of congregations to the gospel of Jesus Christ in every culture.
  • To engage in all realms of personal responsibility and influence to join God in His mission. The faithful Christian servant is to participate in the mission of God through willing submission to God’s unique design and calling.

30 new donors | Thirty days | Under the age of 30
EventsNews

 

Our Goal: Our Goal is to gain 30 new givers in 30 days, under the age of 30.

Why: As we look to God to provide for us, we feel that the support of our young alumni is essential to our ministry. Providing even small amounts of financial support can deepen the connection between a donor and the organization they support. We highly value our younger alumni and want them to be strongly invested in the continuing mission of Prairie.

Who: Our young alumni who are passionate about life transformation and want to support Prairie College in carrying it's mission further. We hope to see people under the age of 30 get involved financially to invest in the next wave of students who are becoming lovers of God and seeking to meet some of the greatest needs in the world.

The gift: Although we are suggesting gifts of $10 or $25 dollars, the amount does not matter. The gift can be designated to any fund or project that connects to you the most.

When: We will aim to achieve our goal between December 1 and December 30, 2016.

If you have any questions about the 30thirty30 project please email pamela.fraser@prairie.edu. We look forward to connecting with you.

Alberta's Top Amateur Pilot!
EventsNews

We are excited to announce that Reuben Vermeulen, one of our aviation students, has won the Amateur Pilot Award for Alberta!

The Amateur Pilot Award competition is run every year for amateur pilots across Canada. Anyone who has never held a job in the industry can enter, and all entrants are split into categories. The categories are divided by province. Reuben explains:

"I entered the Alberta region and was chosen as the top amateur pilot in Alberta. I am going to Ontario in late September to compete against the eight other finalists, and the winner of the competition will be named the top amateur pilot in Canada, which is a huge honour!

So far I have entered my PPL (Private Pilot License) flight test score and completed a written exam. In the September competition I will be writing a few more tests and completing a navigation exercise, and I will have to perform two flight tests.

I am really excited about this! It is a very big competition and extremely nerve-racking, but I feel very blessed that God has led me here!
