The Changing Context of the Unreached:

Embracing the Messiness of Missions

What picture comes to mind when you hear the word missions? For many, the picture would involve Western missionaries residing among a remote, unreached people group. The missionaries learn the language, present the gospel and establish churches.

Caring for MKs

A missionary once asked his son, “Where do you feel most at home?” His son replied, “Airports!” He had spent most of his youth as a “missionary kid” in Latin America and then moved to the United States to attend college.

First Responders

The call came in: A massive building had collapsed with many trapped inside. The first responders arrived on the scene and could hear the cries for help. It was going to be a long day. They knew they were only hearing the cries of a few. Many more were buried beyond earshot. To get everyone out of the debris would require careful planning, teamwork and sacrifice. They would need to remove all the layers of debris safely and carefully.

From Our Executive Director

50 years ago, when Ethnos Canada needed a space for hosting mission conferences, local believers went to the bush, cut down trees, and brought the trunks to our campus. A simple pole structure was built, trusses were added and it was closed in with metal siding. Voila—a conference centre and gymnasium.

Denitta Hanna

Ethnos Canada contacted her and asked if she would consider coming back to work for them as a receptionist. Denitta laughed at them, “I would love to come and work with you, but let’s be realistic, who would support a single widowed missionary working home support?”... But that is exactly what God is doing. Denitta is excited to see what God has in mind.

Dave & Judy Wright

While on furlough in 2015, a Woodland Cree Elder/evangelist pursued Dave, eager to learn how to effectively build a church that would continue to mature. He asked if what had been developed by Ethnos overseas could be shared with his people here. This was the beginning of ‘Establish – A foundational disciple-making series.’ Now, through Establish, God is beginning to bless both aboriginal and non-aboriginal churches right here in Canada.

PREPARING FOR ONGOING IMPACT

The Ethnos campus in Durham, Ontario, has been used to mobilize, equip and support missionaries since 1968.

For almost 50 years, a rustic pole structure has served many purposes, including conference centre and gymnasium. It is no longer cost-effective to maintain nor operate, so a replacement building is needed.

With your support of this project, more believers will be challenged to engage in the Great Commission at recruitment events, more missionary candidates will be equipped for cross-cultural church planting, and more missionaries on the front-lines will be provided the support they need.
