ERC Commission on Missions
The Eastern Region Commission on Missions is dedicated to serving God by promoting the missions work of the Churches of God General Conference throughout our local Conference. We are available to help districts organize events to emphasize missions and lift up the global outreach ministries of the CGGC through prayer and financial assistance.
The Commission has a history of encouraging global mission work. To accomplish its purpose of promoting missions in the ERC, the Commission has five primary goals:
- To raise cross-cultural mission awareness and involvement across the Conference;
- To assist district and local mission organizations;
- To encourage opportunities for “hands-on” mission service;
To facilitate the raising and distribution of funds and other resources for missions, disaster relief or other special needs; and
- To work together with the CGGC in promoting worldwide mission endeavors.
The Commission has worked to fulfill its goals through a variety of activities:
- Sponsorship of an annual VBS project to raise money for a particular need on one of our mission fields. In 2009, this was expanded to a Conference-wide mission project.
- Ministry to the ERC’s affiliate missionaries by sending them notes of encouragement.
- Financial assistance for work teams and disaster relief projects.
- Assistance to district missionary rallies
The Commission is always open to having new members join us – people who have an interest in missions and a passion to see God’s kingdom spread throughout the world. Visit our website using the link at www.erccog.org to read about our most current activities.
