Our Mission

Fully endorsed by the Global Mission of C&MA Canada, the CCACA MAT program is formulated to rally and facilitate pastors and lay leaders of CCACA member churches to actively engage in mid-term missions even after their retirement.  The main objective of MAT is to assist international workers (IWs) in the planting and building up of C&MA churches amongst the Chinese diasporas.

Scope of the Mission

  • CCACA MAT will only serve the C&MA missions or its affiliated organizations.
  • The invitation from the IWs or local church mission board will be considered.
  • The minimum length for each trip is one month. Each MAT member is expected to serve in the mission field for a maximum of six months annually.

MAT Candidates

  • Retired C&MA pastors and lay leaders who have a good testimony and self-funding financial ability.

What to Expect as a MAT Member?

  • MAT is a self-funded program, CCACA together with the supporting home churches may consider reimbursing the following basic costs upon the availability of fund:
    • Round trip airfare
    • Accommodation cost
    • Ministry expenses
    • Travel insurance cost (mandatory for oversea trip)
  • To facilitate the ministry, CCACA will setup a MAT Account ID number for each member, so that ministry supports from home churches or donations from individuals can be registered accordingly.
  • If necessary, official business cards will be made available to each MAT member.
