Churches can offer comfort and help when tragedy or disaster strikes a community. But how can we respond best? How can we prepare? Expert guests from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (Merle Doherty, Rapid Response Team Manager) and World Renew (Bob Laarman, Director of Disaster Response Services) and host Karen Stiller engage viewers in a practical and inspiring conversation.
“When one of our campus ministry staff had a question about the transition of young people from high school to adulthood, his first call was to the EFC. His question led to the EFC conducting a major research study into the question in partnership with ourselves and several other Canadian Christian organizations.
Our affiliation with the EFC made this major study possible and it is of ongoing benefit not only to ourselves and other evangelical organizations but to those of the Catholic, Mainline Protestant, and Orthodox churches.
Affiliation with the EFC has also been beneficial in providing information on issues relating to our interaction with government, creating a unified voice on important issues, and in facilitating a variety of conversations with other like-minded organizations and denominations across Canada.
I deeply value our affiliation with the EFC.”
"The Salvation Army is pleased to be an affiliate of the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada. The EFC provides an important forum to demonstrate a shared faith and commitment to being a transforming influence in the lives of individuals and communities. There is strength and authenticity when Christians join together in proclaiming the good news of the gospel.
The EFC has increasingly become a voice for the marginalized and vulnerable in our society. We reflect and demonstrate the love of Christ when the needs of the poor are addressed. Human trafficking victims and refugees are beneficiaries of the research and advocacy of the EFC. We are grateful to the EFC for shared resources, excellent research capacity and its faithfulness to the teaching of the Scriptures."
"We have deeply appreciated the benefits of our affiliation with the EFC. We have enjoyed EFC resource staff who have spoken to faculty, staff and students on our campus, and have served as advisors via e-mail and phone on other occasions. I have personally enjoyed the connections made with other ministry leaders through the EFC's annual Presidents' Day gatherings. I also deeply appreciate the role that the EFC has had in giving birth to what is now known as Christian Higher Education Canada - an association which has been an excellent source of fellowship and encouragement for our university. The vision and insights provided by the EFC have been a wonderful gift to the Canadian church!"
"The challenge for churches and church leaders has never been greater. How do we fulfill our mandate to be salt and light in a society where the public expression of faith collides with the complexities of a changing socio-political environment? Our partnership with The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada is an essential part of the solution. As an affiliate of the EFC we have access to personnel, critical information services, and support resources to assist us in understanding and developing a Christian response to the current trends and changes in our society. Our affiliation with the EFC also gives us the assurance that we are not alone. We are a part of a larger Christian community and, through the voice of the EFC, our Christian perspectives are being represented in public forums with integrity, consistency and excellence."
