Montreal Lake New Venture

an emerging community in Montreal Lake, SK

Montreal Lake Cree Nation is a Woodland Cree community with approximately 1,000 - 1,200 band members living on the reserve in the boreal forest of central Saskatchewan. A church has been growing here for about 8 years, and Josh Fresne is currently giving leadership to this gathering. Josh sees one of the greatest needs for this community as discipleship. His desire is for this New Venture to grow into a transforming community that serves, loves and brings about healing in the community and beyond by the power of God.

Josh and Kaitlyn Dufresne.png

Josh Dufresne grew up in Portage la Prairie, MB. After his high school graduation, he played Junior A hockey for 2 years, during time which God called him into relationship with himself and also gave him a special burden for ministry among First Nations people. Josh attended Briercrest College where he played hockey for 5 years and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies. He has been married to his sweetheart Kaitlyn since 2016. Josh is especially excited about the potential of how God might use his love of hockey to build relationships in Montreal Lake and bring people into relationship with himself. 

Can you help?

If you’re excited by the new things God is doing through the Dufresnes, please reach out to them!
