Travis & Krystalyn Harms

I have come to the realization I have not sent out a newsletter for a meaningful period of time. In my defence, I did have a wedding I was preparing for. Krystalyn and I celebrated our union on May 30 in a small ceremony here in Thompson. We were quite determined to get married despite […]

The EMMC exists to EQUIP and ENCOURAGE our churches for effective ministry, EMPOWERING them to participate in God’s work in the world. Our international, regional and local ministries will focus on:

INSPIRING and FACILITATING local outreach and global missions.

EQUIPPING and RESOURCING local church ministries.

DEVELOPING and SUPPORTING pastors and leaders in our congregation.


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.
