As a resource of the C&MA, Envision helps to identify and develop future missional leaders who innovate, establish, and strengthen communities of faith in key urban environments. We do this through short-term trips, internships, go global careers, leadership development, and ministry resources.

With his entrepreneurial vision and leadership, Ryan gives direction to various national initiatives that engage new leaders within the C&MA through global missions, church planting, and strategic partnerships. Ryan and his wife enjoy tackling house renovation projects while traveling with their three kids.

She is a recent graduate from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor’s of Environmental Studies with a focus in International Development, and wants to use her studies to help shape the future of missions. Kind, bold and extremely talented, she hopes to work with young influencers, and help them pursue the calling God has on their life. When she isn’t at the office, Abby loves to relax by going on hikes or attempting to cook a new dish. She has also discovered a new love of running and is in the process of training to complete a half marathon (or even a full one) this year.
