ACC on Mission…Making Him Known
Our Missions Ministry Team is made up of Teresa DeBoer (chair), Marlis Toews (secretary) and Ron Rempel.
Jesus told his disciples to “go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19). We seek to make Jesus known in our communities, our city, and beyond. We encourage each person who calls ACC home to find out how God is calling them to serve in their own neighbourhoods and work places. In addition, ACC partners with various ministries to be more effective in spreading the love of Christ at home and abroad.
Missions is a growing ministry at ACC. Many people from ACC serve in various ways in our community, helping shine the light of Christ. Each person who calls themselves a disciple of Jesus is a missionary. While ACC serves with many local ministries in an official capacity, many of the people who call ACC home serve in our community without fanfare and with humility in order to share the love of Jesus and to make His saving grace known.

Please continue pray for them as they seek to live as lights for Jesus in their community.

Alan and Colleen (Kalea, Joshua) serve with MB Mission and work with Emberá and Wounaan communities in eastern Panama. These tribes have had limited access to the Gospel due to their remoteness as well as violence related to political factions and drug-trafficking. They also lack basic water and sanitation infrastructure and waterborne disease has escalated. Alan and Colleen provide technical and educational assistance to meet the needs of eight communities in clean water, sanitation, and health workshops. As they engage in meeting physical needs, Alan and Colleen have found many opportunities to minister to people’s spiritual needs.
