Global Missions

Your Generosity Matters

Missions is not about programs, it’s about people!

It’s about sharing the love of Christ with those we meet, whether we’re in our own neighborhood or halfway around the world.
It not only impacts those we serve, but also our own spiritual growth and transformation.
Every day is an opportunity to be on mission!

Dalit Freedom Network

Dalit Freedom Network

The Dalit people — also known as “Untouchables” — have been the most oppressed caste for over 3,000 years, living at the bottom of India’s rigid social order. The word “Dalit” means “broken, ground-down, downtrodden, or oppressed.” Dalits comprise about ¼ of the population of India: that’s seven times the entire population of Canada.

With the help of supporters like Richmond Hill Pentecostal Church, DNF strives to:

  1. Provide quality education to Dalit children in the rural villages of India.
  2. Impart to Dalit children human worth and dignity, spiritual renewal and social equality; giving every Dalit child an opportunity to know that they are created by a God who loves them.
  3. Provide Dalit men and women vocational training skills that will enable them to achieve economic independence.
  4. Develop public health education and disease prevention in rural areas of India.
  5. Bring about a Canadian awareness of the plight of the Dalit people.

Emergency Relief and Oversea Development

Established in 1983, the Emergency Relief and Overseas Development arm of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada, has been helping people through crises of war, natural disaster and the hunger and thirst of poverty to over 35 countries.

ERDO workers, working from best-practice methodology and results-based measurements, bring short-term relief of food, emergency shelter and clean water in times of crisis and natural disaster. ERDO is focused on four key areas that span from immediate aid to long-term programs: crisis response, food assistance, child sponsorship and community development.

Long-term development brings communities to a point where they are self-sustaining, and stable.  This is the ultimate goal of ERDO – to “do good”, not just for today, but for the long term.

Thanks to the generous giving of our members, RHPC has raised $12,000 for Philippines Relief through the Emergency Relief and Development Organization of The Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada.
