Supporting World Missions @ MCA

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” – Matthew 28:19-20

From Genesis to Revelation, there is a consistent message from God, to His children, to go and spread the good news of Jesus Christ. At MCA we believe that Missions matters. We have been supporting missionaries here at home and all around the world for over 25 years. These are the 8 missionaries (and families) that we support all year round.

Our Missionaries

Ilya & Janet Bantseev
Missionaries in Russia

The Bantseevs are pastoring a church of approximately 1,000 people in Novokuznetsk, a city of 600,000 people. Their congregation ministers in prisons, orphanages, and to people with life controlling problems or addictions. They also organize various ministry and missionary teams to plant churches throughout Siberia and share the gospel with professional groups such as doctors, athletes, government officials and police.

Michel & Louise Charbonneau
Missionaries in Haiti

After having worked in Ivory Coast for nine years, the Charbonneaus felt called to Haiti in 1996. They began a church for children and youth, where weekly meetings are held in their backyard.

Peter & Patricia DeWit
Missionaries in France

We started our missionary life in Quebec, learning French and planting churches. We moved to Thailand in 1991, where we served for 22 years! Then off to Europe after much prayer and a life-threatening circumstance for Peter. We served in Germany for a year caring for missionary kids at an international School called Black Forest Academy. For the last two years we have been in Paris France.

Linda Duncalfe
Missionaries in Uganda

Linda has served in International Missions since 1983, initially at the PAOC International office. She moved with her family to Uganda in 2005 to work with Watoto Child Care Ministries, returning to Canada in 2011.

Kirk & Shelley Kauffeldt
Missionaries Worldwide

Having served for 19 years outside of Canada, we transitioned in 2018 to be Canadian-based, and Missionaries in Residence at Summit Pacific College.

Brenda Kean
Missionary in Kenya

Our mission is to meet spiritual and physical needs throughout the city of Nairobi. We do this by creating jobs for widows and single mothers through the trade of sewing and provide the care and protection for their children through education and health care.

Linda Veldhuizen
Missionaries in Philippines

Since 1989, Linda has served as the director of Noah’s Ark Home for Children in a small town 10 hours from the capital of Manila. There are presently 36 children being cared for with help from Canadian sponsors through ChildCARE Plus.

Scott & Melissa Williams
Missionaries in Spain

The issue: Spain, with 47 million people, is a fully post-Christian secular nation. Less than 1 million or 1% go to an evangelical church. Through community group and business, we work to build relationships and create an opportunity for God to lead in transformation. (Matthew 5:14-16)

Every March and October our focus is Missions. Our goal is to raise funds for specific projects both in our community and around the world.

This past October our goal was to raise $80,000 for Missions. Here’s a message from Pastor Ginette:

As of October 31 we have officially raised $97,150 for Missions! To God be the glory! The extra funds have been designated and sent out on your behalf. Thank you for your love and generosity.
