This is the third meeting held in Ottawa.

Dr. Mingardi shared about the ECAMFC:

  • our goals to improve the services we provide and to grow our membership
  • our new brochure and logo
  • new free advertising on our web site for our members (availability for work and vacant positions in churches)
  • a new Facebook page for ECAMFC (for improving communication with our members and increasing ECAMFC visibility)
  • planned expansion of the Bible Extension Institute curriculum with courses for applicants and for updating members

A light lunch was served and the participants then broke into small groups to share and pray for each others’ needs and ministry.

The presence of the Holy Spirit was strong throughout the meeting and people kept talking and sharing with each other. Everybody left glad that they came and restating their interest in meeting regularly.
