Resilient

New Logo

Feb 3, 2022 | Spring 2022

You may have noticed that we recently changed our MBC logo!

The traditional logo has been used for many, many years. It has served the ministry well.  However, as we have refreshed our mission and vision over the past few years we felt it was also time to introduce a new look that would better support our mission of growing resilient, biblically rooted families.

The expression of this mission can be clearly seen in this new logo (pictured above). The coniferous tree represents strong and resilient families who are a testimony of God’s faithfulness even in the midst of diversity. The pines that grow in Muskoka stand tall in stark contrast to the rugged terrain and weather. The roots intertwine between the crannies of the rocks to provide a network of anchor points supporting the tree to withstand adversity. In the same way, families that anchor in the eternal truth of God’s Word can weather the storms that are inevitable in this fallen world. Enveloped firmly in a Christ-centred identity and purpose, biblically rooted families stand as beautiful and powerful testimonies in a culture desperately looking for meaning.
