“The EFC provides a dynamic place for inspiration, information and collaboration for the evangelical churches of Canada. It offers a platform to encourage one another, to explore common concerns, to innovate around shared opportunities and to speak as “one voice” to the political and social realities of Canadian culture. The EFC informs churches about significant social, moral and ethical issues Canadians are dealing with and creates an environment for honest, open and productive conversations around those issues. The EFC also calls churches to action and establishes channels for our collective prophetic and pastoral voice to be heard. The EFC presents a united face of evangelicalism in Canada. It affirms the reality that churches are ready and willing to care for the needy, be a voice for the marginalized and to bring blessing and hope to all Canadians. I am delighted to be a part of this amazing team!”
"Every year, InterVarsity engages with thousands of students in their high schools, colleges and universities. We welcome thousands more to our camps. Every interaction is an opportunity to invite them to follow Jesus and to walk alongside them in discipleship. This is no simple task in our culture and society today. We deeply appreciate the work of the EFC in understanding and interpreting culture and in suggesting ways for all of us to respond faithfully as God’s people. The EFC provides excellent research and perspective that helps us consider how to best reach today’s youth and young adults. We appreciate the prayerful, strategic partnerships provided through the EFC’s network of churches and ministry organizations." www.ivcf.ca

Through its vision of ministry empowerment, the EFC is becoming a context and means for enabling an increasing variety of Christ-centered churches, organizations and groups to come together to enhance their ministry to the Christian community and their witness to Canadian society."
"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, consistancy and excellence."
