SUPPORT KURIOS FINANCIALLY

Kurios began in 2020 with a vision of young adults seeking Jesus together and pursuing Him as Lord of all.

Thanks to the support of our community, we have been successful in funding the start of this new ministry. Looking ahead to the next year, we need to raise $100 000 to ensure Kurios has a solid financial foundation. We are building a community who can pull together to raise today’s leaders now.

If you would like details about our finances, please contact our Director fgrir@xhevbf.pn

All donations are eligible for a charitable donation tax receipt in Canada. Kurios is a ministry of Canadian Baptists of Western Canada, the donate buttons below will re-direct you to the CBWC donation portal. 100% of donations to Kurios through this portal go to fund Kurios.
