ECAMFC National Convention 2012

This year we had an uplifting convention that focused on the role of the Holy Spirit in the ministry.

Our speakers and their messages where:

  • Rev. Peter Cardarelli – “They Shall Run and not Be Weary” (Morning Devotional) – MP3
  • Rev. Gordon Williams – “Guided by the Holy Spirit” (Teaching) – MP3
  • Dr. Maurizio Mingardi – “Finding the Perfect Will of God in Your Ministry” (Evening Ordination Service) – MP3

The messages can be downloaded as MP3 files by right-clicking on the MP3 link following the title and selecting “Save link as”. The first two messages are weak and not very clear because of a problem we experienced with the microphone.

The brochure can be downloaded here.

In the afternoon we had some time to pray individually for members with special needs. Later, in our Business Meeting we:

  • Presented our financial status.
  • Discussed the development of this web site.
  • Reported the appointment of Rev. Peter Cardarelli who is joining the office staff.
  • Explained the developed guidelines for the appointing Regional Representatives. They will improve our local contacts with our members and reach our for new applicants.
  • Reported the results of the elections.
  • Some of our members shared news about their ministry.

We ordained four new members in the evening service. In the following photo you can see Rev. Gordon Williams presenting the new members with their wives to the membership.

We are grateful to Dr. Paul Melnichuk and the staff of the Prayer Palace for their hospitality and for making available their premises.

About Maurizio Mingardi

Dr. Maurizio Mingardi, in 1972, had an encounter with God that totally changed his life. From a scientist doing research in Quantum Mechanics and an atheist, Maurizio became a believer and a disciple of Jesus Christ. Then a spiritual journey began. He was filled with the Holy Spirit and later started Mount Zion Church of the Firstborn in Ottawa, Ontario. Maurizio has been in the ministry for more than 30 years and is presently the Senior Pastor of Mount Zion Church. He has also filled a number of executive positions in public and religious organizations. In 2014 he was elected President of ECAMFC.
