Meet the Team
As a part of our Montreal site, teams and interns will have the chance to serve alongside our partner church, the 180, a new church community led by Pastor Dom Ruso and his wife Bev. It’s name derives from the belief that Jesus alone has the power to turn lives around; inviting us to do a “180” toward a new way of life. We are excited for this partnership and welcome the 180 team to Envision!
We also welcome Joanna, who has extensive experience working in corporate and church contexts. It was through her recent time volunteering at a refugee camp in Greece that God clearly revealed His heart and plans for her life. Having grown up in Montreal, she is passionate about her city, but even more so, for the people that she feels called to serve. Joanna is an active member at the 180 church and enjoys serving on the youth and worship teams.
About the Site
Montreal is a small island in Quebec and is home to approximately 4 million people. It is the second largest primarily French speaking city in the world (after Paris) and was ranked in 2017 as the #1 city in the world for students to pursue higher education. Summer months are bustling with festivals that celebrate food, culture and the arts (Jazz Fest, Francofolie, Just For Laughs, etc). However, its main appeal is its multiculturalism and diversity. It is a mosaic of people from different countries, faith backgrounds, and orientations, and you’ll discover a lot of the world by just taking a stroll through downtown Montreal.
