MSC Canada Inc.
Mission + Service Connections. Enabling and encouraging local church driven missions while committed to God's supply since 1940.
The early focus of MSC, efficiently moving funds and providing trustworthy financial services, remains a core part of what they do. However, in recent years, their overseas worker care and communication with supporters and local churches across Canada have been significantly increased. Over the course of the 75 years since its founding, the role of MSC Canada has expanded into a full expression of what they now call Local Church Driven Missions – a biblical methodology and model for missionary work. They earnestly believe that the best way for the Great Commission to be fulfilled is for local churches to send their own to the mission field. MSC exists to enable local churches to assess, prepare, commend, and support their own mission workers.
Christian Missions in Many Lands Inc.
Christian Missions In Many Lands, Inc. (CMML) was established in 1921 as a nonprofit, faith-based service organization to serve missionaries from the United States serving in cross-cultural missions overseas. CMML serves missionaries who have been commended by local churches designated by the U.S. government as Plymouth Brethren. In 1972 CMML merged with three other missionary service organizations: Voices from The Vineyard, The Fields and the Julia Hasse Memorial Missionary Home, to form a single missionary service organization for U.S. commended missionaries.
Uplook’s roots were planted back in the early 1920s by the Pell family in Grand Rapids, MI. Over the years, the focus had been print materials (books and magazines). Currently, however, the focus of Uplook has been to reach the masses through digital means (though there are still many hard copy resources available). Uplook provides weekly Bible teaching through videos, an on-line resource containing thousands of solid Bible teaching articles, and church-growth resources (i.e. The Church: Masterpiece of the Ages DVD and study guide).
