1 EVANGELICAL CHURCH WINNING ALL ECWA A VISION RENEWED

2 THE PAST APPROACH EMS WAS MOSTLY INVITED TO PARTNER ON FOREIGN FIELDS MOST OF THE TIME BY SIM AND OR A NATIONAL CHURCH IN THAT COUNTRY. CHURCHES PLANTED WERE NOT ECWA CHURCHES. MOST OF THE WORK WAS IN RURAL AREAS AND THE CHURCHES PLANTED WERE ECONOMICALLY WEAK WITH LITTLE CHANCE OF BEING SELF SUPPORTING.

3 REASONS FOR PAST APPROACH AN EXTENSION OF SIM FAMILY RELATIONSHI- NOT AT ALL BAD. A CONTINUATION OF SIM INTERIOR FOCUS ON THE UNREACHED RURAL AREAS- NOT AT ALL BAD. NO FUNDS TO DO INDEPENDENT SURVEY OF CROSS BORDER FIELDS BY EMS – A SEVERE LIMITATION WE ARE STILL STRUGGLING WITH. NO FUNDS TO SUPPORT MISSIONARIES ON THE CROSS BORDERS FIELDS BY EMS – GRADUALLY BEING OVERCOME.

4 EXAMPLES OF OUR MISSION FIELDS NIGER. CHAD. GHANA. REPUBLIC OF BENIN. SUDAN. MALI. BURKINA FASO

5 A VISION REVIVED AND ENLARGED EVANGELICAL CHURCH OF WEST AFRICAEVANGELICAL CHURCH WINNING ALL

6 THE NEW STRATEGY ADVANCEMENT AND EXPANSION OF THE KINGDOM REMAINS OUR OVERIDING VISION. PRESENT PARTNERSHIPS WILL BE SUSTAINED AND WHERE NECESSARY, NEW ONES WILL BE ESTABLISHED ( EXAMPLE OF BURKINA FASO). HOWEVER, AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE, ECWA CHURCHES SHALL BE PLANTED WHEREVER MISSION WORK IS DONE (EXAMPLE TOGO, MALAWI AND CAMEROUN) CHURCH PLANTING SHALL START IN CITIES AND VILLAGES SIMULTENEOSELY. THE HOPE IS FOR CITY CHURCHES TO ULTIMATELY SUPPORT THE RURAL MINISTRIES AND AVOID THEIR PERPETUAL DEPENDENCE ON THE NIGERIAN CHURCH. ( EXAMPLE THE GAMBIA, MALAWI AND TOGO)

7 THIS MEANS MUCH MORE RESOURCES NEEDED SPIRITUAL PHYSICAL MATERIAL & FINANCIAL

8 SPIRITUAL PRAYER –MOBILISING THROUGH PRAYER CALENDER, INTERNET BULLETINS AND TALKS IN GATHERINGS AND CONFERENCES. WE HAVE A SPECIAL PRAYER MOBILISER FOR RADIO MINISTRY TO THE CORE NORTH. BIBLES. OTHER DISCIPLESHIP AND TEACHING MATERIALS.

9 PHYSICAL RESOURCES MISSIONARIES TRADITIONAL MISSIONARIES. TENT MAKING PROFESSIONALS. (FCS AND NIFES PROMOTIONS WILL BE INTENSIFIED) STUDENTS, ESPECIALLY SEMINARIANS AND ECWA PASTORS RESIDENT ABROAD, UNDERGRADUATES AND POST GRADUATES. DISCIPLINING AND TRAINING INDIGENOUS BELIEVERS AND ENGAGING THOSE CALLED AS MISSIONARIES.

10 MATERIAL AND FINANCIAL RESOURCES MONEY FOR MISSIONARY UPKEEP EXPENSES OR CHURCH PLANTER BASIC EXPENSES (EG TRANSPORTATION). MONEY FOR MINISTRY EXPENSES. EG. RENTING OF HALLS, WORSHIP EQUIPMENT, BASIC TEACHING AND DISCIPLESHIP MATERIALS, LAND, BUILDING. MINISTRY EQUIPMENT. E.G. VEHICLES AND OR MOTORCYCLES.

27 THE PROPOSAL CHURCHES TO LINK EMS UP WITH PROFESSIONALS, SEMINARIANS AND STUDENTS THAT THEY BELIEVE ARE IN GOOD STANDING TO PLANT ECWA CHURCHES IN ANY PART OF THE WORLD. WE NEED ADDRESSES, PHONE NUMBERS, OTHER DETAILS FOR CONTACTS. CHURCHES TO ADOPT A (FOREIGN) CROSS BORDERS MISSION FIELD THEY WILL WANT TO SUPPORT – TAKING INTO ACCOUNT MISSIONARIES SUPPORT AND MINISTRY NEEDS. TWO OR MORE CHURCHES CAN COME TOGETHER TO ADOPT A FIELD.

28 THE PROPOASAL CONT’D THIS VISION RENEWED IS AN ECWA PROJECT AND THE ENTIRE ECWA EXECUTIVE IS INVOLVED AND IS CHAMPIONED BY THE ECWA PRESIDENT HIMSELF. THE EMS CROSS BORDERS UNIT WILL SERVE AS A LAISON, PROVIDING DATAS, UPDATES AND REPORTS FOR ECWA PRESIDENT AND THE SUPPORTING CHURCHES ON THE CROSS BORDER FIELDS ADOPTED. FOR ACCOUNTABILITY, ALL FUNDS WILL BE CHANNELLED THROUGH EMS TO THE VARIOUS CROSS BORDER FIELDS AND REPORTS AND ACCOUNTS WILL BE RENDERED BY EMS TO ECWA HEADQUATERS AND SUPPORTING CHURCHES.
