Jesus says that He came to preach the Gospel and declare the nearness of the Kingdom of God. For this purpose, Jesus commissioned His Church. We are so grateful to God for all that He is doing and for including ACrossMission in His mission among His people?
ACrossMission is backed by a dynamic group that is dedicated to taking the Gospel into all the world. Through various backgrounds, our Board of Directors provides oversight to all of ACrossMission's projects and activities. To learn why we support ACrossMission, keep reading below!

The pastors of Rorya (right) meeting with our Chairperson, Gord Janzen and Rev. Edwards in March of 2017. The work has begun well - we began with three pastors and now our work has been blessed and expanded to more than thirty. God is good and He blesses us - when we are faithful with little, He grows His work through us.

ACrossMission is designed to maximize every dollar given to reach the pastors, priests, and church workers on the ground in impoverished east Africa with virtually no overhead costs, giving them immediate monthly assistance. Our support helps these workers in proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ, establishing churches, and encouraging spiritual growth in an area that is hungry for the Gospel. That is why I support ACrossMission.
My passion for the work ACM does began when I went to Tanzania in December 2014; the love, generosity and pure joy we received in the midst of poverty reflected Christ's light. ACM is about changing people's hearts and the way we share the Gospel. While the work of ACM is primarily about supporting the work of pastors and missionaries in Sub-Saharan East Africa, ACM helps change us from the inside-out as we share our abundance with others.

I am a retired Professor of Psychology, beekeeper, and enjoy growing my own garlic! As a lifelong Christian it is an honour to help support this initiative. ACM is an exciting development with its direct support of Christian Ministry by supporting local ministers. It is very exciting that using new technologies, we can directly impact ministries around the world and receive news about God's work in the global mission field - a modern, efficient and locally empowering ministry!

Not every place in the world is as safe and sound as our comfortable lives here in Canada. Other parts of the world, poverty, hardship and violence is prevalent. These are all major systemic problems, and are very difficult to resolve. A starting point is to foster and spread a belief in Jesus. Through Him, all things will become possible. There will be faith and hope to overcome these obstacles. That is why I support ACM - I believe that this can happen!
