Pulse Podcast 003: Unpacking Our Motto

, , , ,

In this episode we dig a little deeper than normal. One of the requests that led us into podcasting is to help our people get a better grip on some Evangelical Free Church core beliefs. This request has come from churches and our District Superintendents.

In this episode, we unpack our motto:
In essentials, unity. In non-essentials, charity. In all things, Jesus Christ.

This informs our ethos, which strongly influences how we choose to live out our faith as a community.

If you want to take a look at our Statement of Faith which contains the 10 articles we reference in this video, click here.

Pulse Podcast 002: Why a Podcast Anyway?

, , , ,

This is episode 2. We’re still calling it a “somewhat regular production” though. Changing that tagline after two episodes just sounds like hubris!

In this Pulse podcast we’re talking about the Pulse podcast. This vehicle of publication is all new to us, but I think you can tell by the picture above, we’re having fun with it. We really hope we’re not the only ones…

We earnestly want the Pulse to be a conversation starter. You can interact with it on Facebook, Twitter or by e-mail (thepulse@efcc.ca). We want to hear your thoughts and suggestions.

The Pulse Returns to Video!

, , , ,

Some of you may remember our PulseTV experiment from a while back. I think this is a better, more viable format.

After so much planning, dreaming, trying and trying again, we have a real beginning! Welcome to the Pulse Podcast, Episode 001!

If you would like to comment on this, or ask questions, the easiest way is to probably to connect with us on Facebook or Twitter. And finally, if you’d prefer to listen than watch, you can find our audio-only version at SoundCloud.

Thanks for tuning in. We’re excited for the next one, which will be upon us very soon. (We’re aiming for every-second-week, but with all the travel that Home Office people do we’re calling this “somewhat regular”.)

Video: Is There ‘One True Path’ to Board Structure?

, ,

We recently created a video that may be the beginning of a series on the FAQs (frequently asked questions) about the EFCC. A particularly pressing question brought up by one EFCC congregation is the matter of board structure or governance.

Is there one biblical or at least EFCC-endorsed model of church board? Take a look at Bill’s answer, and feel free to share your thoughts below.

We’d be happy for you to share this with anyone who would find it helpful!

Also, if you have suggestions for video topics you’d like to see created in this series, submit a comment below or send us an e-mail.

World of Hope Video Clips

, , , ,


Here are three clips revealing projects highlighted in this year’s World of Hope. We invite you to share these with your church, small group, family even your favourite goldfish!

You can download these by clicking on “Vimeo” in the clip, and looking for the download link below the vimeo clip on the website. (Contact us if you need help with that.)

Also the digital file of these clips are being mailed to each church on a DVD. The booklets will be on their way to you soon!

World of Hope has had a significant impact over the last number of years, and we’re expecting big things again this year!
