The Church Missions Survey explores how Canadian churches are engaged in global missions. You may click the links above or go to www.evangelicalfellowship.ca to complete the surveys. I hope that many of you will contribute to this project and share what you have been learning/doing as you have been growing in your understanding of what it means to be missional.

Have a great week serving Jesus.
