Dear brothers and sisters,
The Quebec MB conference is going through a difficult time with the loss of Éric Wingender, visionary leader of École de Théologie Évangélique de Montréal (ETEM). In addition to his contributions as a theologian, leader, family man, and friend, Éric was also the face of ETEM to the rest of Canada.
ETEM is currently working through a new partnership with IBVIE, a Christian and Missionary Alliance Bible college. It’s an exciting time, but, as with all transitions, there are challenges to face.
The most pressing challenge is a financial one. ETEM needs to raise $100,000 by the end of 2011. I ask that the MB churches of Canada would step up to support ETEM during this critical time in its history, as the school partners with other like-minded denominations to train leaders for the church in Quebec.
Donations may be sent to the Canadian conference, designated to ETEM, or sent directly to ETEM (4824, ch. de la Côte-des-Neiges, bureau 301, Montréal, QC H3V 1G4).
