Every Day Ministries Canada partners with local evangelical pastors and leaders on the north east coast of the Dominican Republic to equip, empower, and encourage them, their families, churches, and communities through leadership development, community development and land development so they can more effectively preach the Gospel and make disciples.
Equipping, Empowering and Encouraging local pastors and churches to preach the Gospel and make disciples.
Every Day Ministries Canada is a non-profit Christian missionary organization that was founded in 2006. The birth of EDMC came about when God clearly planted in the hearts' of the Thomas family a deep passion and burden for the people of the Dominican Republic. Through prayer and fasting, God revealed a clear vision to start a new work aong the North Coast of the DR that includes the cities of Gaspar Hernandez, Río San Juan, Cabrera, Payita and Nagua. Our goal is to assist the existing churches, and their pastors, in whatever way possible to preach the Gospel and make disciples.
We believe God has called us to stand in the gap on behalf of the people in these areas and, with God’s help, and in partnership with the local churches, bring about positive physical changes as well as eternal spiritual change
Location: Colombia, Latin America & the Caribbean
Ministry Focus: Darren and Patty McCrea's work in Colombia is multi-faceted and includes missionary training and church mobilization. They also help coordinate missions teams through a partnership with International Teams:
Their ministry includes:
• Training Latino missionaries, many of whom will be ministering in closed nations.
• Mobilization means organizing events like community and medical outreaches and raising up local Christians to serve. Their heart is to see Colombians reaching Colombians!
• International Short Term Outreach Teams help build up local churches through construction projects and training. Team members have opportunities to love needy children and to share the Gospel in schools, shopping malls and other public venues.
