WHO WE ARE
We are the Evangelical Mennonite Mission Conference. We are a diverse family of churches that are both urban and rural, stretching from Alberta to Ontario and into Mexico, Belize and Bolivia and all have a unique ministry we are called to. As disciples of Jesus we desire to reflect the heart and character of God. Disciples of Jesus grow, not for the sake of growth or the sake of increased knowledge, but for the sake of loving God with all we are and loving our neighbor as ourselves. As we grow in our understanding of who we are and the church God has called us to be, we take action to a renewed obedience and response to Jesus’ exhortation to “Make Disciples” in Matthew 28:18-20. This focus will result in God glorified.

From August 12 to 18 we were in Fairford (Pinaymootang) Reserve under the banner of Athletes in Action. Fairford is approximately 3 and a half […]
Steinbach Bible College has graciously shared a video of a session that Dr. Chris Marchand presented at SBC in the spring. I personally attended the meeting and what an eye-opener it was even for someone with experience working with high-risk youth. Take the time to learn what you need to know about Marijuana (or Cannabis) as […]
“Have you ever been pursued?” What a strange way to start a conversation I thought. Pursued … a cop because I was speeding? … no, I don’t speed. An animal during a hike? … don’t think so. My wife? … I think I was the pursuer! “What do you mean?” I asked. He paused for […]

Jesus tells his disciples in Acts 1:8, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth,” (NIV). But, when replacing the word witnesses with its original Greek word, we understand Christ […]
