Vern and Holly Dyck with their kids by a small bush-plane

January, 28th, 2020


Today we have the joy to sit down with Holly Dyck, who serves in the Missionary Kid Care & Education Department with Ethnos Canada. We can’t wait to hear about how we can better care for missionary kids, as well as gain an understanding of some of the challenges families face serving in remote locations.


  • Missionary Kid (MK) – is a child of a missionary
  • Third Culture Kid (TCK) – is a person who is from a home culture (e.g. Canada), grows up in a foreign culture (e. g. Singapore) for their childhood years, and creates a third culture because they don’t quite fit in either home or foreign culture.
  • MK Care & Ed – is the department within Ethnos Canada that cares for our missionary kids and provides education consultation and resources for families.
  • Emanate – an 18-month cross-cultural missionary training program with Ethnos Canada.
