Christian Direction, an organization whose vision is “to see God transform urban communities by the concerted actions of committed Christians” was asked to put together a couple of lunchtime programs at École de Chomedey-de-Maisonneuve, a high school in Montreal, Quebec. The school had been seeing academic and social issues in the student body and was looking for a way to make a positive change in the environment for everyone.
