Our mission statement, we exist to glorify God by multiplying transformational churches among all people, drives our vision for the future of the EFCA. We envision accelerated growth in the number of Christ’s disciples and churches and the percentage of ethnic groups represented in the EFCA. We are committed to an EFCA that mirrors the demographics of the U.S., and reflects the “all people” God is redeeming.

Safe Families for Children

Safe Families for Children is a network of Christian families that extends the community safety net by providing parents in need with a loving sanctuary for their children in the time of crisis. Founded in 2002 by LYDIA Home Association (EFCA), this new model of care for children and families in crisis has been adopted by hundreds of churches across the country by helping children live temporarily in the home of a church family while the parent’s medical, financial or job situation gets straightened out. The North Central District has partnered with Safe Familes to help bring this into our churches throughout Minnesota as a example of “caring for the least of these.”

Camp Shamineau (Motley, MN) is a year round facility offering summer camps, trips, retreats, family camps, parent & child weekends, rental weekends, and community events.  Our desire is to ‘clear a way to the cross’ by sharing Christ’s love in a camp setting. Rock Ridge (near Ely, MN on the edge of the BWCA) exists to create a wilderness camping experience for youth and adults with the purpose of sharing the Gospel of Christ, encouraging growth in Christ and providing training for the Christian leaders and workers of tomorrow.
