Ministry spotlight is a new series for our blog that will share with you information about different ministries. It will be a “get to know you” style blog post, just giving info about the ministry, what they do, how they run, and how you can help. After cycling through our list we will also look to do ministry updates as well as share info about big projects/changes at these ministries. If you work for or know of a ministry you would like to see shared in our Ministry Spotlight blog please contact us with the Name, location and website for the ministry. If you are interested in supporting any of these ministries with a DAF please contact us.
With the world at war in 1940, the Canadian government set up foreign exchange controls which prevented funds from being sent out of the country that might harm the Allied war effort. A committee was formed from local churches to act on behalf of local churches to apply for the permits and then forward funds directly to workers. The M.S.C. immediately began to function as a government-recognized conduit for forwarding funds to local church commended missionaries. Recognized by Revenue Canada as a charity from the start, the Committee was incorporated in 1959 and became a registered charity in 1967. Finally, it was legally renamed MSC Canada in 1993.
MSC Canada exists to engage and enable each generation to impact the world for Christ through Local Church Driven Missions while being Committed to God’s Supply.
Local Church Driven Missions is a biblical methodology and model for mission work. We earnestly believe that the best way for the Great Commission to be fulfilled is for local churches to send their own to the mission field. MSC exists to enable local churches to assess, prepare, commend, and support their own mission workers.
We are also wholeheartedly Committed to God’s Supply, and believe that those who are sent should go, believing that God will supply all of their needs through the faithfulness of His people. As an organization, we do the same.
