MVC entered into 2020 with hopes of continued growth, impact,
and renewal. And then, the COVID-19 crisis began ...
As with many charities across Canada, 2020 was a challenging year
for us, but we proved to be successful as we continued to
transition. Funding continued to be received regardless of the
inability to send teams. By the end of 2020, we impacted a variety
of different efforts worldwide and our COVID-19 Disaster Relief
Fund offered immediate alleviation of suffering caused by the
pandemic. Our desire is to grow in providing our project partners
support in training, administration, prayer, and fundraising; while
continuing to send mission teams to provide encouragement,
project awareness, and extra helping hands to assist in the efforts.
We are grateful to our board members, project partners, staff, and
supporters for their loyalty as we have worked tirelessly to
establish a culture that seeks to actively participate in God’s
commission through partnering with leaders in communities.
We have seen God at work in and through MVC as we continue to
be committed to the cause of Christ. Thank you for partnering with
us and the work MVC is accomplishing around the world. Your
involvement, prayers, and support continue to impact many lives!
In celebration of our charity’s transformation, we are launching our
new brand to encompass who we are becoming - ImpactHope!
WE ARE BECOMING ... ImpactHope
Over the past couple of years, the leadership has prayed and
investigated the option of rebranding MVC. We are excited to
share with you, after consultation with many supporters and
professionals, we are now launching and moving forward!
To actively participate in the mission of Jesus Christ by
announcing the good news, alleviating suffering, pursuing
justice, and bringing hope to the world.
Spending of funds is confined to approved programs and projects. If any given need has been met or cannot be completed, the
understanding is that the financial gift will then be used where it is most needed or where another opportunity of similar nature exists.

31 students enrolled in 2020 in the two-year program!

Most children's programming could not be
held due to restrictions
545 Families with children or seniors were
provided with food and other supplies.
Over 43 Pastors were supported monthly
with extra food throughout the year.
Why is this ministry so vital for the church in Zambia?
The majority of pastors have very little education yet feel called
to be pastors and work within their communities to impact for
good. In the African context, a community's overall health and
vitality depends on church health which, ultimately depends on
pastor health and effective Biblical training. Communities are
impacted through well trained pastors!
