five reasons you should join a firststory team with a picture from the back of a dog sled

 

FirstStory is a ministry of Ethnos Canada, establishing thriving churches among the Indigenous Peoples in Canada.


Our culture has a ubiquitous focus on self: My happiness. My independence. My success.

In contrast, Ethnos Canada is looking for believers willing to work on teams that establish thriving churches in Northern Canada. Here are five reasons you should join a FirstStory team:

  1. Teamwork creates synergy.
  2. Teamwork increases points of contact.
  3. Teamwork increases the vitality of each worker’s ministry.
  4. Teamwork increases the longevity of the ministry.
  5. Teamwork reduces financial costs.
