Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekane Yesus
International Mission Society
During the April 2010 Annual PCUSA Ethiopia Mission Network Conference
held in Washington, PA., all were encouraged to join the newly forming International
Mission Society and to stand alongside our mission partner, the Ethiopian
Evangelical Church Mekane Yesus (EECMY) in this special way.
The 17th EECMY General Assembly was held in January 2005. During this time,
the assembly passed a policy decision to establish the EECMY International
Mission Society which will be assisted by individual members and congregations.
The assembly believed that this vision is from above and would be a blessing
to the church and the country at large. A Cross-cultural Missionary sending
International Mission Society was established on January 2007. The church
has been preparing to send the first Missionary group to neighboring countries,
central Africa and to the different parts of the world as well.
EECMY has had an immense contribution to the kingdom of God for over the
past one hundred years. This church is about to send missionaries to the
neighboring countries and beyond. To carry out this missiological task, EECMY
has planned to work in collaboration with our pioneer mother mission societies,
mission organizations with those who have a heart for mission work, and with
each individual member and congregation.
The EECMY International Mission Society, as it has been organized at the
national level is working hard in recruiting members from Ethiopia and overseas
and includes them as participants in the expansion of the Kingdom, thereby
fulfilling the great commission. Every believing community, all children,
family members, ministries and institutions are highly encouraged to be
part of the EECMY-IMS.
