Intro to the new Collaborative Model

Designed by the One Mission Partnership Task Force, this ministry model is based on trends revealed in the National Survey, which the Executive Board conducted December 1-31, 2017. Our desire is to be one unified conference with one approach to equipping and resourcing churches towards our Mission of multiplying disciples and churches to see Canada Transformed by the Good news of Jesus.

Please take some time to watch the video above as it further explains this new collaborative model.

Remembering Billy Graham

After the 1981 Billy Graham Crusade in Calgary, Highland MB Church had 50 names to follow up with.

The crusade was “the experience of a lifetime,” said pastor Abe Block…. The excitement will continue at Highland “as we really dig in and make these people feel welcome in our church.”

In light of Billy Graham’s passing yesterday we thought we’d share this MB Herald article from our archives. Read the whole article here.


2017 National Survey – Results

Working together with the 6 provincial conferences and MB ministry partners, the CCMBC Executive Board authorized a national survey to be conducted from December 1-31, 2017. The online survey included 21 questions plus 9 demographic questions. Email notifications were distributed by the provincial conferences to all MB churches and notices were posted on the various conference web sites. Churches were also asked to invite their members to participate in the survey.

The purpose of the survey was to review our conference relationships and structures. The survey was developed with input from all organizations that are mentioned in the survey, i.e. provincial conferences, national conference, BFL, CCMBC Legacy, C2C, MB Mission, camps, CBC, CMU, ETEQ and MB Seminary. The survey results are available below and will be discussed at the provincial and national conventions in 2018.

We are grateful to the people who took time to provide feedback. The information collected has been very insightful and has helped the Executive Board in its discernment.

November 2017 Video Update

“Well, we want to greet all of you in the MB family of Canada. We’re here at Northview Community Church and we’re in the middle of our EQUIP 2017 conference. I don’t know about you, Bruce, but I just came out of a really rich table Bible study, and our presenter Darrell Johnson was introducing for us the Beatitudes and was talking about the fact that when we say blessed, it’s really God who is blessed when we enter into the Kingdom by becoming the kind of person the Beatitudes describes. We had this rich conversation about that.”
