At Brentview we believe that we can do more to further the Gospel when we partner with others. For this reason, we believe that it is vital for us to partner with individuals and agencies that are working to bring the hope of Christ to our local communities and around the world. Our strategic partners are based in Calgary, across Canada, and around the world. They are involved in a diverse range of ministries, but at the core they are all passionate about making disciples in Jesus' name.
