WHO WE ARE

OUR STORY

Reach Montreal is a young church plant with a rich history. In 2016, Dustin and Racquel Boreland, along with their two children, moved from Toronto to Montreal with a heart to plant a church that would serve and reach the people of Montreal. A few years into their work, the young core team merged with West Island Baptist Church, a historic congregation with a vision to invest in the next generation with the Gospel. 


In 2019, after several months of prayer and planning, the two independent churches relaunched as one new church united with a vision to see every borough of Montreal renewed with the Good News of Jesus. 

 

OUR MISSION

Reach Montreal exists to reach all spheres of Montreal culture with the grace, truth, and love of Jesus by living authentic and generous lives.

DUSTIN BORELAND

Dustin and his wife Racquel, along with their two children Gabriel and Raina moved from Toronto in 2016 with a heart to plant a church that engages Montreal with the Gospel. Dustin loves the local church and is passionate about the intersection of the Gospel and culture, and can be found overindulging on hip hop, coffee, and spicy chicken sandwiches.
