Gathering 2021 Projects

Project Timothy “Proyecto Timoteo” is a LIEAB* leadership training program based on the biblical equipping principle of 2 Timothy 2:2. The three-phase program is designed to call, equip and mobilize leaders within the Bolivian churches and ministries.
Phase One is focused on development of new leaders, many of which are young adults.
Phase Two is directed toward existing church leaders who need deeper ministry preparation.
Phase Three will be a more advanced program for those who will go on to more formal education leading to a bachelor’s degree in theology. Study costs are covered by the students, their local church, and LIEAB. As EMMC we are seeking to come alongside to raise half of the funds needed for Phase One of this important leadership initiative.
Project Timothy Gathering goal: $5000 CND

Project Rising is a fund used to come alongside new church plants and multiplication efforts by providing empowering support for training, start-ups and pastoral support. Our EMMC churches have been encouraged to be obedient to Jesus’ exhortation to make disciples in Matthew 28:18-20. We see a rising! The fruit of these efforts are seen in new ministry outreaches in Saskatchewan and Manitoba, and through renewal in Ontario. Through the intentional discipleship use of EQUIP: A discipleship pathway, we anticipate new ministries rising up in Southern Alberta. EQUIP: A Discipleship Pathway is a new practical equipping strategy available to all churches, that will help us pass the baton as together we Rise to the Call!
Project Rising Gathering goal: $5000 CND

*LIEAB is our sister conference in Bolivia comprised of Spanish-speaking believers and churches.
