EMMC and Associate Missions
From the start of the EMMC Conference outreach and involvement in missions has been a strong priority for leaders and members. Only a few short years after the formation of what was then the Rudnerweider Mennonite Church leaders sought to send out the first missionary. That missions emphasis continues, and as a relatively small conference of churches it is not possible to provide the finances and administrative oversight for all the individuals and families who feel God’s call to full-time missions whether locally, perhaps nationally, and also internationally.
To maintain a contact and to offer some ongoing support, both in prayer and financially, an Associate Missionary program was introduced. With this we are able to provide a continuing amount of financial support from the Conference missions budget to workers in various fields of service. Currently about 20 couples/individuals are receiving this support.
