Evangelical Missionary Church of Canada

Connection to Canadian Foodgrains Bank

When you give, your contribution can be credited to the Foodgrains Bank account of the Evangelical Missionary Church of Canada (EMCC), who determines how those funds, and any Government of Canada matching funds, will be used.

Working with the strengths of our overseas partners to share God’s blessing, EMCC receives requests for assistance. Each request is reviewed to ensure the food and other supports will improve the lives of the people receiving the assistance – in both the short and long terms.

Once planning is complete (including details to ensure safe and reliable delivery), Canadian Foodgrains Bank arranges for purchase and delivery, either directly, or together with other Foodgrains Bank church members.

The EMCC has been a member of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank since 1998.

History

Our story flows from both the Evangelical Church in Canada and the Missionary Church of Canada, who merged in 1993 to form the EMCC. The ECC story emphasized spiritual renewal, of holy living, and of having hearts “warmed” to the presence of God’s Spirit in our lives, which was characteristic of early Methodism. Our Missionary Church of Canada background brought deep Anabaptist values of community, mission, and discipleship. When Wesleyan evangelism brought to life the Person of the Holy Spirit in our predecessors, a counter-cultural movement emerged.

The Evangelical Missionary Church of Canada emphasizes the call to live a life marked by following Jesus on mission together, the invitation to bless and serve all people in the name of Jesus, as well as the responsibility to preach and live out the difference Jesus makes in our lives across Canada and around the world. In all we do, we seek to stay centred on living like Jesus, for Jesus, and in the power of the Spirit of Jesus.
