Global Outreach (GO) oversees all of WMB’s Global Partners, through which we engage in cross-cultural experiences outside Kitchener-Waterloo, in Canada and in various parts of the world. Through our Global Partners, GO mobilizes people and resources for short- and long-term missions.


Global Partners

WMB Church’s Global Partners consist of an Anchor Cause Community (a community engaged in a mission aligned with a WMB Anchor Cause) and a partner organization with a long-term missionary or point person. Read about our Global Partners below.

MISSION DESCRIPTION: Caring holistically for the desperately poor and vulnerable people of Rwanda.

Impact Rwanda takes a holistic approach to meeting the needs of the desperately poor and vulnerable people of Rwanda, with a focus on women, refugees, and at-risk youth and children. From primary school to university, the Impact Rwanda team has walked with students whose lives were once given up as hopeless. They are now growing into people of God, becoming productive and helpful members of society! These former street kids, girls and boys, are taking these opportunities to help develop their generation and break out of poverty.

LISBON MB CHURCHES

PARTNER ORGANIZATION:
MB Mission

MISSIONARIES:
Otto & Marjorie Ekk

NEXT SHORT-TERM MISSION TRIP:
2018 or 2019

MISSION DESCRIPTION: Partnering with church plants that serve and share Christ among some of the least reached people in Europe.

Otto and Marjorie Ekk have been country leaders since 1992 and lead five church plants on the outskirts of Lisbon. They teach, encourage and equip leaders and shape vision for these diverse churches, including two Russian churches and two multicultural African churches. They have a passion for sharing Christ with the least reached people in Europe. In a country where only 1% of the population believes in the Bible, they have seen much growth and many lives changed. The Ekks also love hosting visitors and would greatly welcome one or more couples to partner with them for an extended term of several months or longer.
