Throughout the year, special projects emerge among our mission partners that are more geared to individual volunteers. Our desire is to connect these needs with those in the congregation who have either the capacity or passion to help meet the requests. Here are some projects you can look into by visiting our web page or attending the information night at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 23.
Haiti, Bon Fruit TV Ministry
Bon Fruit is a TV Ministry that broadcasts to the entire nation of Haiti. They produce 12-16 short episodes every year and need your help in several areas:
• Experience in accounting to properly organize the books.
• A web designer to expand and improve the design of their “Wix” created website, bonfruittv.com. No experience in coding is necessary, just good designing and computer skills. The web designer can even remain in the US to do his/her work!
• Anybody with experience in film, photography, or digital arts is greatly welcome. These persons can also assist in passing on their skills to the local filmmakers.
• Arrangements can also be made to have a role in filming one of the scripts.
Contact Kristian Snow directly with your questions, interest, or availability.
North Carolina, Christ in Action
Christ In Action was founded in 1982 by Dr. Denny & Sandy Nissley, and has grown into an international ministry touching lives around the world. In the late 90’s the focus shifted from street ministry to disaster relief, ministering to those in need as Jesus did.
Today with a volunteer base of thousands, Christ In Action is bringing hope to America’s families and are currently focusing efforts on Hurricane Matthew relief in North Carolina. Several from ECC have volunteered for a week or two at a time. Volunteer dates are year round. To find out more about this serving opportunity or to apply, click here!
Uganda, Stevin Hoffman Ministries
More than a million people have fled their homes in Sudan due to civil unrest with many of them ending up as refugees in Northern Uganda. Stevin & Beverly Hoffman (members at ECC) have a heart to meet the spiritual needs of those in these settlements.
Last year, the Lord opened doors to minister in the Rhino Settlement Camp in Aura, Uganda. While the Ugandan government is attempting to meet the physical needs of those in this camp, the spiritual needs are being neglected. The Hoffman’s desire to make a few trips, as the Lord leads, with small teams of persons interested in prayer/intercession, ministry of the Word, and medical care.
If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity or simply have questions, contact them directly.

Last year, John & Danya Hess (members at ECC) returned to Montego Bay Jamaica to give primary leadership to the YWAM base. Having served together on this base staff for a number of years, not only are they familiar with the culture and mission, but also have relational equity in the region. As they step into the leading the base, God has given them the opportunity to reset the discipleship training and outreach opportunities in 2017.
This YWAM base sets on a beautiful property, overlooking Montego Bay and is a terrific place to volunteer (especially during our winter months!). They currently are in desperate need of skilled tradesmen to help renovate several dorm/housing facilities: plumbers, electricians, painters, and concrete block layers to name a few. Due to limited staffing, they have the capacity to host 2-5 persons at a time anytime throughout the year.
