Each month, the Mission Committee will highlight one or more of the organizations we support financially, physically, and/or prayerfully.
The October Spotlight Missions are The Emergency Relief Fund and World Outreach from the EPC.
Emergency Relief Funds are designated to help people in crisis due to natural disasters, war, humanitarian crises, or other needs.
The EPC's National Leadership Team authorizes emergency relief offerings as needs arise. Any donations to a specific emergency relief fund that exceed local recovery requests from an affected EPC church may be held in a general EPC Emergency Relief Fund to be used for future emergency relief needs.
World Outreach is the mission sending agency of the EPC. Their principal calling is to glorify God by starting disciple–making movements among least–reached people groups, especially among Muslims. In these hard places, they generally work in one of three ways ... Engage 2025, International Theological Education Network, and Cooperative Agreements. World Outreach currently has about 60 family units living primarily in a belt stretching from North Africa to Southeast Asia.
