The MGE-Christmas Charity Choice Award 2017
MGE is pleased once again to promote the dedicated and selfless work of the UPCI North American Home Missionaries, for over 30 years the McQuinn Family has been a strong supporter of this work.
From the desk of our COO
As a Western Canadian, home missionary and church planting family, we the McQuinn family, have greatly loved and supported Christmas for Christ as one project that is very dear to our hearts.
The work and dedication it takes to establish a new Church, council, help and encourage a community is the greatest work anyone could ever embark upon, as Spiritual First Responders - North American Home Missionaries often are on call 24/7 - ministering and helping those in need.
This Christmas, we at MGE would like to encourage our members to consider Christmas for Christ as the charity of choice for this years Christmas gifting.
When you support a Home Missionary you are gifting a whole community with love, support and someone to comfort them and bring them to Christ for 365 days of the year.
From all of us at MGE and the McQuinn Family we would like to wish one and all a very Merry - Christ filled Christmas.

We believe there is one God, the eternal, holy, loving, all knowing, all-powerful, omnipresent Spirit, creator of all. (Deut. 6:4; 1 Tim. 1:17; Lev. 19:2; 1 John 4:8; Heb. 4:13; Rev. 19:6; Jer. 23:24; John 4:24; Is. 44:24; Col. 1:16)
We believe the Holy Bible is God’s true and complete Word to humanity, verified most notably through fulfilled prophecies concerning Jesus Christ. (2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:20-21; Is. 41:21-23; Is. 42:8-9; Is. 46:9-10; Luke 24:25-27; John 17:17)
We believe all people were created in the image of God to be His children, His church and His bride, living in eternal fellowship with Him. (Genesis 1:27; John 1:12-13; Rom. 8:16; Eph. 5:25-32; Rev. 19:7)
We acknowledge that we have all failed to fulfill God’s plan and purpose for our lives, through willful disobedience to His Word, and acting against the voice of our own conscience. Therefore, we have earned eternal alienation from His holy presence, i.e. spiritual and physical death. (Rom. 3:23; Rom. 6:23a)
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Almighty God, fully divine and fully human. He came to Earth and willingly suffered death on the cross, the full payment and penalty for human sin. He rose from the dead through His own power and now offers eternal life to all who will receive salvation by faith. (John 3: 14-17; 2 Cor. 5:18-21; Rom. 6:23b; Eph. 2:4-9). This faith is ignited within us through the preaching of His Word (Rom. 10:14-17), and leads us to repentance: (a divinely inspired change of heart – turning away from sin and turning to God). (2 Cor. 7:9-10; 2 Tim. 2:24-26)
We demonstrate our faith and obedience to God through repentance; baptism in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of our sins; and receiving the gift of His Holy Spirit, which gives us the power to live a righteous, godly life, joyfully sharing the good news of our “new birth” with others. (Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38; Acts 4:12; 1 Pet. 1:22-23)
We believe our Lord Jesus Christ will soon return to Earth to receive His people to Himself and establish His righteous, eternal kingdom. (John 14:3; Mt. 25:34)

Request a North American Home Missionary for your Community.
If you do not currently have a UPCI – Home Missionary in your community please feel free to contact the UPCI and request more information today. What can a UPCI-Home Missionary do for you and your community? Home Missionaries are “Spiritual First Respondents”. Working directly with community leaders a Home Missionary defines his role in the community as lead by the Spirit of the Lord and in accordance with the protocol of the UPCI. Currently, and in the past, Home missionaries have helped to address and provide caring, compassionate Biblical solutions to many societal problems. Home missionaries duties may include but are not limited to:
- Providing Biblical, spiritual and emotional counseling for those in need regardless of religious affiliation.
- Helping to address, create and facilitate various programs and services within the community helping to support those suffering from homelessness, poverty, neglect and addictions.
- Offering emergency “first response” spiritual care to families or a community in crisis.
- Offering spiritual care to those in hospital and provide in – home spiritual care follow up.
- They may also help to facilitate spiritual and emotional counseling to law enforcement, medical and emergency service providers, schools and educators through registered UPCI Chaplains.
The best thing any mayor and council can do for their community is to provide a full time UPCI Home missionary.
