SBC’s annual Mission X is a vital experiential component of what we are about at SBC. As such it has become a special signature of our desire to help students consistently integrate what they are learning at a practical, ministry level.
First year students (MX1) participate in para-church service and rescue initiatives in Winnipeg’s core area for five days.
Second year students (MX2) travel to First Nations communities of Northern Manitoba. They spend a week learning about Indigenous culture by living and serving alongside the people while building relationships.
Third year students (MX3) have the opportunity of ministering in international settings for 3 weeks in locations like Germany, Mexico, Belize, Nicaragua, Cuba, Paraguay, Bolivia, the Philippines, and England. Students are encouraged to fund-raise the support needed for this trip.
- Two-week international mission adventure in Western Canada
- 5 day Mission Exposure trip to Winnipeg’s core

Student MX Stories
"Through connecting with so many different cultures and age groups, my mind was opened to the reality that so much of missions has to do with building relationships."
“I came to see that people are not projects, or products of their past but they are members of a community and part of the body of Christ.”
“MX has inspired me to think more creatively about ministry and has grown my heart to serve more passionately.”
“MX3 was probably one of the greatest experiences of my life. It was refreshing, enlightening, and life-changing to finally get out there and put some of what I’d learned into practice.”
“I loved seeing and learning from different ministries and how they treated people that are experiencing homelessness.”
“There were many lessons I learned about the culture and people and it was encouraging to experience the love, hospitality and generosity that they shared with us.”
“MX3 is a great opportunity for those who have a heart and passion for reaching the global Church. It stretches a person’s comfort levels for room to exercise faith in God’s calling in their lives.”
“I learned more about my own ministry gifts, as well as the value of working on a team with diverse strengths and abilities.”
