Rural Life Mission, located in Hagersville ON, is looking for an Executive Director to take over from the present one who is retiring. At the present time this is a part-time position. A good proportion of the work is done at the RLM office at 41 Main St. North. There are two other ladies who also work part-time in the office. The office manager does the administrative and secretarial duties and receipting. The bookkeeper keeps the bookkeeping up to date.

This is an administrative position but also requires some preaching/pulpit supply and deputation. As well, there is travel to northern Ontario to encourage our missionary couples and families and to discuss their ministry and provide counsel when needed. It involves leading prayer meetings, writing newsletters, helping with the planning of our RLM annual conference and setting the agenda for board meetings and facilitating these at the Mission office at least six or seven times a year. Right now, this is being done by Zoom meetings.

The Mission has a website (www.rurallifemission.ca) which contains the Statement of Faith and a short description of RLM ministry locations. There is a church in Armstrong ON, a Mission Home in Thunder Bay, as well as a camp located an hour southwest of Thunder Bay which operates all year round. The other two ministries of the RLM are churches located in Geraldton ON and Sprucedale ON.

The Mission was incorporated in 1945 in Ontario. It is an evangelical independent, faith-based mission. The workers are expected to raise their own prayer and financial support. There is a monthly salary.

For further information or inquiries, you can contact the present Executive Director, David Knight, at 905-852-3534 or email at dlk10899@gmail.com.

Mission House Hosts Posting

Rural Life Mission, located in Hagersville ON, is looking for a couple to live at its mission house in Thunder Bay ON (see picture on website as mentioned below).  This position involves maintaining the house, providing hospitality for other mission personnel who might need to stay there. Sometimes the basement apartment is rented out to Christian college or university students.

This position involves cooking meals for house guests, doing the washing of linens, and making house repairs as needed.  There is also opportunity to get involved in other opportunities as long as this does not interfere with the hospitality aspect of the ministry.  A pleasant disposition, a welcoming smile and a godly character are essentials for this ministry.

Workers are expected to raise their own prayer and financial support.  A monthly salary is paid.

Rural Life Mission’s Response to COVID-19

By now the whole world knows the seriousness of the COVID-19 virus. It has caused many deaths among people of all ages and disrupted daily living worldwide. Governments have sought to control the suffering by introducing policies to limit contact among individuals and in doing so slow the spread of the Corona Virus.

We are commanded by God to recognize that the government has the power to pass laws and regulations to maintain the common good of its citizens, (Romans 13:1-8). We acknowledge that our government has done its’ best, with the interests of the population in mind, despite the sentiment of some that feel isolation is an intrusion into their lives.

In response and in cooperation with our government’s policies, Rural Life Mission has made, what the leadership considers, a prudent decision to cancel the camping season at Round Lake Bible Camp.

Our churches have also followed the regulations for worship establishments by not holding indoor services until recently when a regulation was passed allowing a 30% capacity limit for individual congregations.

We do not know what the future holds. Therefore, Rural Life Mission’s leadership has made the decision to cancel the already postponed Conference at the CEF Apps Ridge Camp and Training Centre, the public meeting at Bethel-Park Chapel in Brantford and the Fall Banquet at Emmanuel Bible Church in Simcoe ON. COVID-19 regulations may change. For this reason, we will keep our options open.

Thank you so very much for your ongoing prayer and financial support throughout these difficult times. Please continue to pray with us that our government leaders make wise decisions; that our frontline healthcare workers are kept safe; for those struggling to recover from the virus and for those grieving the loss of loved ones with whom they could not share those final moments.

We will keep you posted through newsletters, church announcements and phone calls. May the Lord continue to be your comfort, hope and stay today and throughout the coming weeks and months as we strive together for the gospel of our blessed Lord Jesus Christ.
