APM - Aboriginal Pentecostal Ministries

Mission of the Month Spotlight

Ministry Focus:


Aboriginal Pentecostal Ministries or APM, is a ministry of the Western Ontario district of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada that supports First Nations ministers, churches and ministries.  Every dollar raised and designated to APM goes directly to fund APM without any administrative fees being deducted.


Robert Linklater, is the APM Council Chair and he works in cooperation with a WOD Regional Director to ascertain needs in specific areas, mostly in the far north of Ontario, on reserves, especially, fly-in communities, where support and resources are scarce.  There are seventeen PAOC churches on reserves in Western Ontario.  APM supplies resources for bible college training, assisted assembly funds, project funds for church buildings, travel costs for APM pastors’ conferences and community support needs for things like counseling.


Many of the pastors and leaders in APM are extremely isolated and benefit by the funds raised in churches to reach our First Nations communities.  Robert Linklater chairs a council through which projects and priorities are approved.  Robert is an ordained credential holder in the WOD who has pastored all over the north, of Ontario and also in Manitoba District, served as an evangelist, and ministered as a recording artist.  He is married to Irene; together they have two adult daughters and several grandchildren.  His travel expenses to visit reserves and encourage isolated pastors are also raised through APM.  Robert was born in fly-in reserve of Moose Factory on James Bay, and is uniquely qualified to lead this ministry.

Ministries We support


  • Souls for Christ - Dean O'Connor

    Rev. Dean C O'Connor, the leader of SFC began his ministry in the Ottawa Valley working with various leaders and ministries. The first few years of Dean's ministry was largely shaped by the Holy Spirit as Dean was lead to go to Bible College to learn about his call and ministry. Following graduation from Eastern Pentecostal Bible College, Dean began to preach on the streets and learned his call and leading in the ministry as an Evangelist.

    From there Dean felt God leading him to leave his small home town and to go a much larger mission field to where he would spend more than 21 years of his life working with homeless and needy people and with the vast number of unsaved people who need to hear the Gospel. Today, Dean is preaching, teaching, and ministering as a Home Missionary/Evangelist in Canada's largest Inner City, Toronto Ontario Canada.

  • Mission Canada - Ejay Tupe

    Ejay brings years of urban ministry experience to the Mission Canada team. Based in the urban core of Toronto, Ejay has ministered to countless marginalized youth and young adults, journeying with some to help them better their housing, employment and education situations. It is Ejay’s desire to bring Christ into every setting he finds himself in.  

    Poverty and injustice are very visible in Toronto’s urban core. Every day, the rich, the poor, and the middle class, interact and intersect, unaware that in God’s vision, each belongs to the other.
    Many care about the state of a city yet due to daily busyness many are not able to positively influence those who find themselves either on the streets or in challenging life situations. For this reason, it is crucial that Mission Canada place workers in these gaps of our nation – people who know the city well, have the networks, and can bring life transforming change to those who need it most. Ejay is here… in the city… because we must.
