Love Quest International Church was birthed from a vision given to Pastors Terrance & Julia Richmond in 2008. The vision began as a name and ‘Love Quest’ took on a variety of different forms over the years as they sought the Lord on what the name and vision was to be. From basketball camps to community outreaches to music projects, the vision of ‘Love Quest’ never died as the Richmonds continued to seek the Lord on what its final form was meant to be.
Following their family’s relocation to Vancouver, BC in January 2016, their original purpose for relocating began to shift and through guidance and counsel, the Holy Spirit revealed it was time for Love Quest International Church to be planted. Beginning in a loft in New Westminster, BC in January 2017, The Richmonds began to host weekly midweek prayer & worship nights before launching with a group of 11 people to a weekly Sunday Service Experience in February 2018.
Over the last 5 ½ years, Love Quest has grown and evolved into a thriving community filled with joy and hope. We have navigated all kinds of unique and dynamic challenges from navigating through the COVID-19 pandemic as a 2 year old church to building relationships with our city to learning to embrace the fullness of who God has created us to be. We have built a community that is passionate about reaching those around them with the love of Christ and utilizing our unique gifts, talents and passions for building the Kingdom.
We currently have two locations in the Greater Vancouver Area – one in Surrey City Centre and the other in Fraser Heights and are currently preparing to launch in the Greater Toronto Area in Fall 2023.

The Core of Our Existence
OUR CORE VALUES
Defining Our Culture // CULTURE SHOCK
Our culture is what identifies who we are – It’s the how and why we do what we do! These pillars are convictions that drive and define the culture:
A CULTURE OF LOVE
Love is the foundation of everything that we do. Love is bigger than feelings and emotions; it’s a choice. Love causes us to fight to remain at the center of the ring placing unity at the forefront of everything that we do. We engage in uncomfortable conversations, rejoice in each other’s victories. Love is our greatest motivator and faith is our greatest activator!
A CULTURE OF CELEBRATION
We choose to celebrate often! Through our worship, our laughter, and our joy, we foster an environment that creates an atmosphere of infectious celebration. When we make a choice to celebrate often we step into a new dimension of joy that opens doors for greater freedom to be released.
A CULTURE OF HONOUR
We value and honour each and every person that comes through our doors. This honour is extended to all regardless of title, influence, and position. We respect those that are like us and those who are different from us. Through this culture of We chose to ascribe dignity and value to each and every soul that we encounter.
A CULTURE OF GENEROSITY
Generosity is bigger than finances – it’s about a heart posture. A heart posture of generosity empowers you to be willing to give of yourself so that others can flourish. Through our generosity we ensure that no one goes without and that everyone has what they need!
A CULTURE OF EXCELLENCE
Excellence is not perfection – it’s a heart posture to do and be your best at all times. In the same spirit of Daniel who was defined as having an excellent spirit, we desire to be a community where people can experience exceptional care, attention to detail, and love.
A CULTURE OF EQUIPPING
If you have a gift or a passion or a calling, it won’t remain locked inside you – you will be empowered to walk in the fullness of who God made you to be. We give you the tools that you need in order to be effective in using your God given gifts & talents. We’re passionate about teaching and training people to utilize their gifts to the fullest extent.
A CULTURE OF ACTIVATION
Activating is what mobilizes us to live out the Kingdom Message! We don’t allow ourselves to remain stagnant and in one place – we are activated to be released into all the world and share the love of God wherever we go. Join us on the Quest!
A Culture of Legacy Builders
It’s bigger than us! We’re after leaving an impact of wholeness and greatness for the next five generations. We know that how we build and live now will teach even more people when we’re gone – so we chose to focus on laying a foundation for others so that the generations after can do even greater!
