Who is Region 4?
The beautiful landscape of Southern Ontario is the home of three EMMC churches. The early years of this Region started with ministry to Low German seasonal workers, newcomers to Canada. As many of them stayed in the area and made Ontario their home, the ministries grew, meeting the needs of new believers. At any church gathering, you will hear conversations in English, Low German and Spanish! These churches seek to minister to all who need to hear the Good News of Christ.
The individuals below are the General Council representatives for Region 4.
