Home Office Toonie Sunday

, , , ,

Home Office Toonie Sunday is our annual request for support for what we do, and how we do it. Everything we do at Home Office is to nurture ministry environments across Canada and around the world. In case you’re not aware, Home Office provides an extensive list of services for the EFCC movement:

  • financial coordination and administration
  • event coordination (esp. EFCC Conference)
  • missionary orientation
  • missions project coordination
  • assistance with short-term missions planning
  • reporting and story-telling
  • connecting with leaders, pastors and churches
  • and lots, lots more

This year, we are especially highlighting our new Catalysts who have specific roles within our movement, including Prayer, Church Planting and Leadership Development.

We are grateful for the financial support that we receive from you, our EFCC family. Specifically we are asking for one toonie ($2) per attender which will enable us to finish this year well, and start the next with confidence!

We would greatly appreciate any churches that collect this either as a second offering, or a piggy-bank in the foyer, or any other creative means, and then send the money in as a cheque to Home Office.

Thanks for helping us as we serve you!

EFCCM Orientation Video

, ,

Here is the explanation you’ve been waiting for: a portrait of the EFCCM in less than 10.5 minutes!

Please share this with anyone you think might be interested, including:

  • your church’s missions committee
  • your deacons
  • your pastor
  • your family
  • that guy who just told you he had a dream last night that he was a missionary, and who asked you to help him get over it!

When considering international missions, and coming to grips with new cultures, languages and geography, there are a lot of unknowns. But hopefully after this video, you’ll feel like you know the EFCCM itself a little better, and where you might fit in.

If you feel like God is speaking a call to international service into your life, we’d love to hear from you! Drop us a line!

I was pleased to film this Q&A between Petros and Susan. (Fun fact: Susan wrote the info, and the questions! :-)   )

Please share this with your family, friends and church. Zimbabwe needs our prayers and our help in tangible ways. Some of these have been outline in the EFCCM’s World of Hope campaign. You can find more details about that by clicking here.

Additionally, Susan provided this video piece which features a song written and donated to Zimbabwe Gecko Society by local, BC artist Sanna Lavallee:
