Hey Parents!

We are so excited about EFCC Conference Camp coming up in just under 2 months. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to serve each of you as you attend conference; by ministering to, getting to know and enjoying your children. Many of you are new and we extend a hearty west coast welcome! We trust you will be refreshed and encouraged to continue on your journey as you spend time at Conference.

We have a fun and exciting Conference Camp planned for children and youth ages 1-18. We will begin each morning with a devotional or bible study to have a Godly start to the day. And the rest of the day will be filled with age appropriate activities that we trust will give children and youth fond memories of church and being part of God’s family. From splash parks, to farm animals, to crafts, to music, games, exploring, carnival fun, beach days and more, we ensure that your kids will have a wonderful experience here in beautiful British Columbia!

We hope to see you there!

Sincerely,
The EFCC Conference Camp Staff

This appeal is from Deb Taylor, our on-site coordinator for EFCC Conference 2016.


When I was on-site coordinator in the past, I had sought out sponsorships for the extra special things we do above what is budgeted for from Home Office.

I am seeking to do the same this year for a few things in particular:

  1. Children’s/Teens Conference Camp – we are charging a minimal fee for the spectacular things that my leaders have planned, in order to make it possible for as many of our lay leaders, pastors and missionaries to come as a whole family.
  2. T-Shirts for volunteers and children’s camp
  3. The Banquet – because Fort Langley EFC is a medium-sized church and does not have room enough for the number of people we expect at the banquet, we have had to move it to the Langley Events Centre and of course that increases the cost as everything has to be rented from them and the catering has to be done by them.

Altogether, I am hoping to raise up to $6500.

So what I am asking is:

  1. if you would consider sending in any amount yourself or
  2. if you could pass on the opportunity to any “friend of the Free Church” you know who would be interested or
  3. if you could promote it in your own churches as an opportunity to bless the bigger family.

This year we are holding our first ever Annual General Meeting in an off-Conference year!

OkotoksThe meeting will take place at Okotoks EFC in Okotoks, Alberta, on May 26, 2015, starting at 4pm. This coincides with Day 1 of EFCC Theological Summit 2015. Your church will be entitled to send delegates to Okotoks or to have those delegates join via live video streaming. We will send details regarding this live-streaming option in a few weeks’ time.

Click here for all the Theological Summit 2015 details!

The agenda for this AGM will be brief yet important: a report from the Executive Director, a financial report and a video update regarding what is going on in the movement as a whole. We invite you to elect your delegates for this AGM in the same way as you do for the biennial EFCC Conference.

Agenda of the AGM Business Meeting

A delegate form explaining how many delegates each church may “send” to the AGM (whether in person or virtually, via live-streaming)

Other reports will be sent out to the churches and delegates prior to the AGM. Please plan to choose your delegates and email your delegate forms to us with the information requested (especially if they are joining the AGM via live streaming). Please also note that the Business Meeting requires a quorum (25%) of member churches, so even if there are none from your fellowship planning to attend EFCC Theological Conference, you can still attend, in person or virtually, the Business Meeting.

We look forward to seeing many of you in Okotoks!
