At Eagles View Church, all global and local missions are under the title of EVC Go. The word "go" is powerful commandment that Jesus gave his followers as he entrusted them to continue his mission with the help of the Holy Spirit. We know we were called individually and as a church to GO into our community and to the ends of the earth to make Jesus known.
Following the work of one of our members, Perry Lunsford, EVC drilled a water well for a village called Campo Nuevo in the country of Honduras.
This began a relationship which gave us the opportunity to construct a school in Saba and prepare it with electricity. We are continuing our work building the school and a local church in Saba. Our desire is to continue building relationships and sharing the love of Christ with the beautiful people of Honduras.
Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples!
(Psalm 96:3 ESV)
We’ve been blessed to partner with a couple of Christian groups in Sherbrooke, Quebec. In Quebec, less than one half of one percent of people are professing Christians, making the Quebecois people group the most spiritually needy in all of North America. Over the past few years, we’ve been building a relationship with Parole de Vie (Word of Life in English), a school that both disciples young people, and trains missionaries. They have a Bible school where they take students who have finished high school and they train them in the gospel for a year, giving them opportunities to serve in the churches in Sherbrooke. They also have a French language school for missionaries who are called to the French-speaking world. Through our partnership with PdV, we’ve been able to bless them with desperately needed renovations for facilities that house the future missionaries during their training and help them to bring back into use some formerly unusable buildings to house summer campers who get to come and hear the gospel, some of them for the first time.
We also have the chance to work with Jean-Marc Princivil and his wife, Myra. They are church planters with NAMB, and they serve at the Eglise du Mont-Bellevue, EMB. Jean-Marc has been called to the poorest quarter of the city, Mont Bellevue, where his church is able to minister the gospel to those who desperately need it, including many refugees and displaced people who have come to Quebec with virtually nothing. We continue to partner with this church in ways like helping them get started with an AWANA program, which now sees up to 45 kids on Friday nights come to a safe place to have fun and make friends while learning about Jesus.
Operation Christmas Child sends out shoebox filled Christmas gifts to children across the world as a means of spreading joy and the good news of Jesus. This year EVC packed over 1400 shoeboxes and hosted as a collection site for our community.
