EMMC Leadership Development Workshops have started. Darrell Kehler and Lyn Dyck- Exec. Dir. were in Hague Gospel Church on March 31 & April 1 with leadership of that church. It was a joy to see the group learn together and laugh together. The group highly recommended other churches to take advantage of the workshop.
Darrell Kehler will be at Glencross Mennonite Church April 13th for the first of three workshops. 40 leaders will be taking part in "Leading with Vision". Please pray for Darrell and our churches and our calling to Make Disciples.

Missions committees from our Churches in Manitoba (Region 2&3) got together on Thursday March 23, 2017 for an evening of sharing at the Morrow Gospel Church. The Missions committees were given the opportunity to share with each other of the various missions their churches are involved in. What a blessing it was to hear of the ministry of our local churches. We heard that our churches; both urban and rural were setting up food banks, were being used by the community for AA meetings, girl guides etc. Some have set up halfway houses, some are partnering with other mission organizations within Canada and around the world. Some of our churches are sponsoring refugees. This list was varied and plentiful! Many of the churches shared that involvement in ministries or missions often were the result of someone from the congregation getting involved. Many expressed the appreciation to be part of EMMC mission work. We spent time in prayer for each other, for our churches, and for the conference as a whole that we would be faithful to the mission we've been called to. It was a blessing to see new friendships made and new connections within our family of churches. We left encouraged and looking forward to the next one! Doing together what we can't do alone.

Churches are beginning to book their Leading with Vision Workshops. Darrell Kehler is heading up our Leadership Development Pilot project. Darrell has noted that March and April have filled quite quickly and he is beginning to book churches into May. Churches are excited about the insights they will receive. We look forward to the feedback from the churches and the continuing development of this pilot project. For more information, contact Darrell at the EMMC office 204-253-7929 or 204-381-9411 or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
