How you can help

We need you! The work of INF Canada is carried out by a team of volunteers with administrative and logistical support from INF’s Kathmandu office. We are actively looking and praying for volunteers in Canada to join our team, including:

  • Committed individual with financial expertise to serve on the board as treasurer
  • Communicators who are excited to tell the stories of what God is doing in INF and Nepal; online, through social media and to groups and individuals
  • Prayer mobilizers
  • Networkers who can help us connect with people who’d love to know about and support our work
  • Strategic thinkers, organizers and administrators

If you are interested in any of these roles or are simply excited by the vision but not sure yet how you can help then we’d love to hear from you! Please get in touch.

INF Canada works with the following partner missions in Canada:
INF Canada board members:
Kamal Gamal - Board Chair
Kamal was the principal of a private school in Nepal before his theological studies (M.Div.) at Sydney Missionary & Bible College, Australia, after which, in July 2006, Kamal joined Richmond Baptist in Canada as an Associate Pastor of Youth and Young Adults. Since 2010, Kamal’s role has been changed to Pastor of Outreach & Assimilation because he believes his strength and passion is to reach out to people with the love and the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and develop leaders to expand the Kingdom of God. 

Kamal desires to see people come to know Jesus, reach their full potential, reproduce Christ-like servant leaders, and have a God-honoring impact on their local and global communities. Kamal is amazed to see how God had moved him and his family to several countries to bring glory to God. Kamal often brags that in one year, he had an opportunity to minister in three different multicultural cities on three continents! Kamal has lots of God’s stories to share. 

He loves to meet people, hear their stories and build relationships. Kamal’s interests include jogging, hiking, reading, and spending time with his family. He and his wife, Rajani, have two sons.
