Liebenzell Mission of Canada

“Reaching people around the world with God’s grace through Jesus Christ”


Liebenzell Mission of Canada (LMC) was incorporated in 1969 and is part of Liebenzell Mission International (LMI) – an international, evangelical Christian mission founded in 1899, born of spiritual revival in Germany in the late 1800’s. Liebenzell Mission was initially the German Branch of the China Inland Mission, later branching out on its own under the name of Liebenzell, after the town where the mission set up its headquarters. From seven “sending countries”, Liebenzell has about 230 missionaries filling a variety of ministry roles, serving in approximately 25 countries around the world. LMC is an accredited member of the Canadian Centre for Christian Charities (“4 C’s”).

The Liebenzell Centre


The Liebenzell Centre is a Christian retreat centre situated on over 45 beautiful acres (18.5 hectares) of trees, fields, ponds, and trails, near the town of Moffat, Ontario, Canada. It is within an hour’s drive from the Greater Toronto Area, Hamilton, Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge, and many other parts of southern Ontario.

Rest and Renewal

The Liebenzell Centre offers church and para-church groups as well as pastors and other Christian workers, a quiet and comfortable place of retreat and equipping to enhance their own spiritual lives, and ministry to others.

The Centre as a Gift

This is not a “rental facility”, but rather a gift from God that Liebenzell Mission of Canada makes available without a set charge so that no worthy groups or individuals are prevented from using the Liebenzell Centre for lack of funds. Groups and individuals who can donate to this ministry help cover costs for those who can’t.
