Objects, and Activities for "The Centre Church Effectiveness, Canada"

A Training/Evangelism Organization

"The Centre for Church Effectiveness Canada" plans to work in Canada and abroad preaching and teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We are committed to the Great Commandment and believe the way we can best love God with all our being is to obey Him with all that we are; heart, soul, and mind (Mt. 22:36-38). The best application is to fully obey the Great Commission, first by being a disciple, and then by making disciples. Among leaders, this calls for leading the church to be a Great Commandment, Great Commission church (Mt. 28:18-20).

"The Centre for Church Effectiveness Canada" is a Christian training organization whose mission is:
"to faithfully respond to the call of God, to see every home in Canada positively impacted by the gospel"

The vision (outworking of the mission) is:
"to revitalize the church enabeling it to fulfill its commission and make disciples in Canada and also abroad".

The process is:

Our training philosophy is based on the belief that hands on, on-going help is required, with accountability and coaching, in order to bring about real transformation and change. This is based on Matthew 28:20 and First Thessalonians 5:14 and many other passages in the New Testament that teach the concepts of mentoring, coaching, and accountability.

To Summarize:

The goal is to see every person in Canada hear and have opportunity to respond to the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ in our life time.

The only way we can see that come to fruition is to equip and mobalize the Church of Canada to be effective in what all churches are called by God to do and to be.
Since there are approximately 27,000 churches in Canada, we see this task as being one of decentralization and multiplication. By that we mean, as stated above, we need to train trainers who will work in all the 5 regions of this country to help the church finish the great commission in our life time.

Beyond that we want to partner with other like minded organization not only in Canada but around the world in accomplishing this same objective globally.

The organization will engage in the following activities in pursuit of its charitable objects as stated below.

The objects of "The Centre for Church Effectiveness Canada" are:

  1. To preach, teach, promote, disseminate, advance, demonstrate and implement the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the related truths of the scriptures (Holy Bible) by training and equipping pastors, lay leaders and others by whatever means possible both in Canada and abroad, thus fulfilling the Great Commandment and Great Commission of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, (Matthew 28:18-20) and that the gospel be preached to all the world as a witness.
  2. Provided that these objects shall include only those that are at law, exclusively charitable and without limiting the generality of the foregoing and to accomplish the aforesaid objects.
    • To develop and engage a team of committed individuals who both agree and commit themselves to further the ministry of the organization. These individuals will live by/under biblical principles totally dedicated to the Lord Jesus Christ. These employed individuals will teach and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ where remuneration is not always possible.
      • The organization will:
        • (i) conduct evangelistic meetings and events for those who do not know the Gospel,
        • (ii) teach, train and activate individuals as disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, according to John 8:31-32,
        • (iii) exhort (encourage) others to find a deeper faith in their personal relationship with the Trinity of God.
    • To teach (disciple) pastors how to establish a church with effective great commission fulfillment strategies and structures, in concert with local Christian leadership.
    • The ministry will share (preach/teach) the gospel of Jesus Christ (offering practical help, prayer and friendship) outside the traditional church setting by conducting evangelistic meetings.
    • To train up Christians to practice their faith according to Ephesians 4:11-12.
  3. Church Revitalization & Reproduction. The ministry will assist local pastors and their staff and families in encouraging and mentoring church congregations by providing them with teaching, preaching and fellowship. The ministry will supply ongoing support and training to qualified pastors and workers with adequate confidence and knowledge to succeed. This activity will be undertaken upon the invitation of local pastors or congregations.
