NEFC challenges local indigenous churches to reach out to neighboring areas with the gospel. Native Christians travel to nearby reserves and villages and share their faith with other Indian people.


NEFC is a firm advocate of missions and encourages the role of the church planter to plant churches. One major aim of NEFC is to send more native workers to spiritually hungry reserves, settlements, and urban areas.


NEFC seeks to establish, support and maintain a publishing arm for printing and distributing gospel literature to native people. NEFC puts out a quarterly NEFC News to all NEFC members, associate members and supporters.

Radio - WAH-STE-WIN Aboriginal Radio Network (WARN)

Our goal is to bring the blessings of the gospel of Christ every day to our native peoples of Canada. The Gospel brings hope. That is why we are interested in using radio to spread this wonderful help to every home and village. We’d like to see Indian life become more enjoyable through a visit in their homes every day by radio.


The planting of the good seed of hope through Word and testimony. Jesus said, "I tell you open your eyes and look at the fields. They are ripe for harvest." He is reaching out in love and does not want anyone to perish. Jesus said, "Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every living creature."  Radio is a wonderful means, a gift from God to reach out through the airways with the message of hope.


"And Jesus came and spoke unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen." (Matthew 28: 18-20)
