EFC Establishes Research Centre
The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada (EFC) has established the Centre for Research on Canadian Evangelicalism (CRCE), which seeks to enhance the effectiveness of ministry carried out by Evangelicals in Canada and shed light on the character and role of Evangelicalism in Canada. The Centre conducts research projects and engages in research partnerships; results will be published in Church & Faith Trends. The Centre will also act as a clearinghouse and portal for external research on Canadian Evangelicalism.
Bruce Clemenger, EFC president, states that, “The Centre will provide relevant Canadian data and analysis that will help us understand Evangelicals and trends in Canada and will also assist us in communicating who we are to other Canadians. As an EFC initiative, it will be responsive to the research and information needs of pastors, ministry leaders and evangelical scholars, and will provide data that has previously been unavailable in Canada.”
