The Mission Field is Here.
We live in Ottawa, Canada, working to fulfill the great commission in our nation’s capital and beyond. To fulfill this call, we are mobilizing the Church to move beyond its walls to share the hope of Christ with those whom the society considers marginalized.
Nice to Meet You
We're Dan and Jean Byrne. For the past twelve years we have been living and serving the Lord in Ottawa as Dan pastored a vibrant local church. Dan is now stepping out as a local missionary to the city because the mission field is here.
To reach post-Christian Ottawa, the church needs to move beyond its walls.
May God raise up a missionary movement to reclaim Ottawa for Christ
as lives are transformed by the gospel through the power of the Spirit.
As an EFCC missionary, Dan will conduct most of his work in Ottawa through a ministry called Connecting Streams, which has brought him on as Associate City Lead. Connecting Streams has teams around the city reaching out to those whom society considers marginalized to share with them the hope of Christ. We work alongside local churches to mobilize and equip the body of Christ to take the good news beyond the walls of the church with the expectation that churches will benefit from this mutual partnership. Volunteer-led teams present the gospel, promote discipleship relationships and help the downcast fully experience the transforming power of God.
