Victoria BC Ministry

Reaching the Vulnerable and Marginalized in Victoria BC

Our partner, David Slemin, runs an outreach ministry for the vulnerable on the streets of Victoria, British Columbia. He walks the streets looking for the homeless and hurting, bringing them love and compassion, personal care and emergency supplies. He cares for the homeless as Jesus would.

The initiative doubles as a job skills training and mentoring program for the vulnerable in the community. The primary purpose is to reach these individuals and provide them with tangible opportunities to change their lives. This is achieved through a faith-based approach, wherein marketable job skills, life skills and social skills are developed.

David has been leading a church directed toward reaching those who may not feel welcome elsewhere.

David was raised in Victoria British Columbia. His father struggled with drugs and alcohol, anger and violence and his mother struggled greatly to raise four children on welfare and odd jobs. His personal testimony is the inspiration behind his compassionate ministry.

Your gift can give someone necessities today, such as a hot meal and clean clothes. It can help someone receive longer-term care for addiction, mental health counselling or sustainable self-employment.

Your support will help us continue this program and develop new ones to help disadvantaged and homeless people in Victoria. Please help us make a difference in someone’s life today, tomorrow and in the years to come.

You can reach David at dslemin(at) if you have any questions about the ministry.
