You can help support youth and members of congregations who may require financial assistance to attend the Special Delegate Assembly on Oct. 13 -15, 2017. This invitation to give generously is in partnership with Emerging Voices Initiative (EVI).

A recurring theme of  EVI’s cross-Canada tour in 2016-17 was the importance of encouraging youth to be involved in area and national church initiatives. EVI will host a Youth Delegation Program for high school students to imagine the church of the future in a multi-faith world challenged by bullying, racism, and inequality.

Zaporozhye Evangelical Mennonite Church (ZEMC) is a small fellowship of believers in the city of Zaporozhye, very close to the former Mennonite colony of Chortitza. Because of an ongoing economic crisis, and its proximity to the current civil war in eastern Ukraine, many in this region struggle to maintain family life and adequate income. The Zaporozhye congregation provides a place for worship, fellowship and support, particularly for women members of the community, in a region of many challenges.
