Ministry is hard. It can be isolating and discouraging. The EFCC seeks to encourage the ministers and ministry wives within the fellowship by providing support and prayer.  One way we do this is through organising fraternals, as well as contact with others in the fellowship through the accessible platform of WhatsApp.  Many have found the recent ministers’ fraternals helpful and invigorating.
