Missions at Heritage
Part of our core identity at Heritage is
Impacting the World. We do this from our own doorstep outward – from our own locality to the very ends of the earth. It is our purpose to share the Good News of Jesus both in word and deed, seeking for his Kingdom to come, here and now as in heaven.
Heritage is part of the Christian & Missionary Alliance, the very name of our denomination witnessing to our DNA – namely, that we see ourselves as a community of people on mission.
The C&MA was built on the foundational command of Jesus to “go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19). Jesus himself motivates us. The C&MA aims to be a Christ-centred, Spirit-empowered, Mission-focused movement.
At Heritage, we are part of this mission, helping to send people to live on mission as International Workers (IWs) among least-reached people groups all around the world. Many of these are in countries that closed their doors to traditional “missionaries” long ago – countries which are now referred to as Creative Access Countries (CAC). IWs are respectfully immersed in these other cultures living, loving and doing life together with them. (Further info on the mission initiatives of the C&MA in Canada can be found HERE
Heritage participates in the funding of all IWs sent out from Canada through the Global Advance Fund. The majority of our missions giving is channelled in that direction. We have established special ongoing connections with several of these IWs, committing ourselves in what is termed a Seamless Link partnership.
But Heritage also has developed other commitments of our own which are part of our total missions’ focus. We term these “Home Missions” since they were established from our own home-base, right here. Some are ministries close at hand and others extend to locations far afield (further info on these “Home Missions” can be found HERE.
