Missions Ministry

On January 25, 1977, Emmanuel Baptist Church (EBC) was organized and incorporated in affiliation with the Minnesota Baptist Conference (now Converge North Central) and the Baptist General Conference (now Converge). 

We moved into our new building in 1978.  Under the leadership of Pastor Dan Maxton in the early 1980’s, EBC established a missions program which has grown and continues through today. 

We currently provide a level of support for 10 missionaries or missionary families including two who are serving the Lord in sensitive areas of the world.  Eight of our missionary families are highlighted and shown below.  Included in our annual missions budget are funds designated for Trout Lake Camps, Converge North Central, and our local Youth for Christ. 

In 2005 EBC entered in to a sister church relationship with a congregation in Krasnoselya, Ukraine, which is highlighted on the Ukraine Ministry tab.  This relationship is very precious to us.  EBC’s commitment to missions has been an incredible blessing for us through times of abundance and also through lean times. 

We are grateful that the Lord encouraged us through faithful pastors and leaders to remain a mission-minded church and we look forward to what’s ahead.
