mtlubf_aut2015

Students are gearing up for the new semester, getting ready for new challenges and new experiences in their journey of school life. Montreal University Bible Fellowship is welcoming all students ready to give them full support, be it some kind of material support, emotional support, but most importantly, students will find spiritual support and guidance. Through the Bible – the Word of God – and through prayer and fellowship students can discover rock solid support not only for school life, but for their entire life outside school.

We welcome all students and all persons, whether you are seeking spiritual guidance, whether you have never heard or read the Bible before and just want to learn about it for the first time, whether you are a Christian seeking to grow your faith in Christ, whether you want to be involved in ministry, whether you need a place to pray and worship, or whether you just need a friend, you can find it here.

2013 International SBC – So Loved… So Love! August 1-4 (Thu – Sun)

Posted on: No Comments

For the past year, the entire UBF international community has been praying for the upcoming International Summer Bible Conference with the title “So Loved, So Love!” based on the upper room dialog between Jesus and his disciples in the gospel of John. (John 13-16) This conference will take place in Indiana, Pennsylvania on August 1st to 4th (Thu – Sun) We pray that through this conference, not only can we learn about God’s love for us, but how we can love him back. We are also hosting many delegates all over the world. We want to encourage them with our support and prayer. Finally, we pray that North America can be a missionary sending nation once again and that young people may have God’s calling to go as missionaries to pass on the good news of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

We have international conferences in North America every 5 years. This is a great opportunity to open our eyes and see how God is working in other nations. It is also a moment where we can reflect upon our lives as Christians, whether young or mature, to listen to God’s voice. You are most welcome to join us and pray for God’s work in many nations!

Quick note: Online conference registration finishes July 28th. Afterwards, registration takes place on site.

Montreal UBF 2012 Summer Bible Conference: “Faith & Vision”

2012 Montreal - UdeM - Rideau Summer Conference Attendants

Acts 2:17

“In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.”

On June 22-24, 2012, St. Jean Baptiste weekend in the province of Québec, Montreal UBF held a Summer Bible Conference at the beautiful campus of Bishops’s University in Lennoxville, Québec. Also joining our conference was Rideau UBF (Ottawa) and Université de Montréal UBF. A total of 41 people attended (30 from Montreal, 9 from Rideau, and 2 from UdM) the conference. It was our prayer to restore faith and God’s vision in our lives and for our ministries.

The first day of the conference began with an opening message, by David Jumeau, based on Mark 11:22, “Have Faith in God”. We had clear direction from the very beginning to put our faith in God. Following his message, Lesedi Masisi helped us to learn through Jesus’ calling of Levi (Luke 5:27-32), that Jesus has called each of us with the vision for us to be great men and women of faith. And so just as Jesus called selfish Levi to become Saint Matthew, we wanted to make a decision of faith to follow Christ and live as men and women of faith. To end the evening program, we were led in praise and worship and prayer.

The next morning (Day 2), John Giesbrecht gave the morning devotion message on Psalm 1:1-3, to help us to know that the truly blessed man is the man who meditates on the law of the Lord day and night. The main morning message on Mark 8:31-38 was then given by Marcel Rodney about a life in following Jesus. It was clear that we must remember the basics of a disciple of Jesus, also known as the ABC’s of a life in following Christ. It is a life of a) denying oneself, b) taking up his cross, and c) follow Jesus. We must learn how to say “No” to what we want and “Yes” to God. Then we must take up our cross of mission, because without it, at best we become Sunday Christians. And finally, we must follow Jesus, obeying his commands to make disciples of all nations. In the evening, we could think about receiving God’s vision for ourselves through Philip Wong’s message on Acts 2:14-21. We learned that we need God’s Spirit before we can receive God’s vision. And to receive God’ Spirit, we must repent and be baptised. God will pour out His spirit on all of us who repent, and we will receive God’s vision and power for us to teach the Bible.

On the last day of the conference (Day 3), Nicolas St. Arnault delivered the morning devotion message on 1Ti 4:11-16 and showed us that not only do we have to live as ambassadors of Jesus, but we must also show progress in our life of faith. The last main lecture on Hebrews 12:1-6 was given by Véronique Gagnon-Bilhete. What is crucial in our life of faith and keeping God’s vision is to fix our eyes on Jesus. A life of faith is not like a 100m sprint, but a lifelong marathon. We must remember Jesus. And in closing the conference, Ernest Chan reminded us that the righteous will live by faith (Romans 1:17).

The conference program also included life testimonies from Paul Kim (Rideau UBF) and Monique Jung (Montreal UBF). We were also encouraged by one word testimonies from young disciples of Jesus: Maryruth, Christine, Alice, Josie, Luke Jr., and Josie. May God bless each of them with great faith and God’s vision for their lives.

We are grateful to the Lord for blessing this conference with His spirit and Word. We were strengthened in faith and renewed God’s vision to serve campus mission to build up our 1:1 ministry. May God bless His people with great faith and vision in God!
