Acting upon our connectional value, Free Methodist churches in Canada – together – support a number of ministry areas that maximize our impact beyond our local churches. Each church, at the local level, decides what contributions will be made and where those funds will be directed. These “together” ministries allow our influence to expand throughout Canada and beyond.

Developing gifted and passionate Christian leaders for ministry in the Free Methodist Church is a priority. The Leadership Scholarship Plan (LSP) makes fund available to students who are pursuing ministry within the Free Methodist Church in Canada. This fund also supports and subsidizes foundational course tuitions, pastors retreats, internships and pastors’ network resources.
Developing new healthy churches in communities across Canada is a priority. Church Development makes funds available to help with the start-up of new church plants. In 2006, our collective contributions help church-plants in Peterborough, Montreal, Sherbrooke, and Toronto…. New church-planting opportunities are awaiting financial resourcing.
CANADIAN FM MISSIONARIES
Our collective resources contribute to the training and development of indigenous Christian leaders, to Christian witness amongst unreached people groups, and to the relief of hurting people through the ministries of the Free Methodist Church.Our Canadian missionaries are vitally involved in helping us reach beyond our own borders to touch the world. Your support for (bottom left to right) Rev. Debbie Hogeboom, Rev. David and Jennifer Wright, Rev. So Em, and Pastor Chansouk Piengkham enables our participation in these ministry priorities. Their ministries touch people in Kenya, Niger, Cambodia and Thailand.
