Jeff and Darlene Anderson
The missional roots of our faith were sown in Middle East/North Africa (MENA). This is a region of the world that most of us are relatively unfamiliar with. What we do know often comes from frequent news headlines reporting on political unrest, human suffering, religious persecution and war. In 2017 The Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC) identified another mission region, MENA, to actively participate more fully in extending the whole gospel to the whole world. Through ministries of mission, relief and development we expect to see more disciples in a more caring and just world.
As God was preparing the Covenant Church to be intentional about mission in MENA he was also preparing us to partner with this work. Jeff served the Covenant Church in Canada since 1990 in pastoral ministry as well as Conference Superintendent from 1997-2017. Darlene is a registered nurse with a passion for the church and her Christian faith. She has a degree in counselling and is completing a spiritual direction program.
Please consider partnering with us to support MENA ministries. For more information or to receive regular updates on MENA please phone or email us, or sign up to receive our newsletter.
