Muslim Ministry Consultation: Why do we need this meeting?
Half of Canada's Muslims live in the Greater Toronto Area. The goal of The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada's (EFC) Canadian Network of Ministries to Muslims (CNMM) is to establish key networks across the GTA to better use resources and link together like-minded people working toward the same goals in the same region. Join us on Sept.11. For more information: [email protected].

Christian Leaders Connection events
These one-day events for ministry and business leaders will answer the question: “How do we link our understanding of societal trends with our faith in God’s purposes and translate it into action?” >From the national vantage point of the EFC’s Centre for Research on Canadian Evangelicalism and the Centre for Faith and Public Life, you will gain a better understanding of ministering in a complex world.

IS your church an efc AFFILIATE?
Affiliation with the EFC has many benefits – for pastors, congregations and the EFC.If your congregation is not already affiliated, perhaps you can be the person who encourages your leadership team to prayerfully consider leading your congregation to do so.

The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada is the national association of evangelical Christians, gathered together for influence, impact and identity in ministry and public witness. Since 1964 the EFC has provided a national forum for Evangelicals and a constructive voice for biblical principles in life and society.
