First Baptist Moncton supports missions around the world through Canadian Baptist Ministries (CBM), which carries out various overseas missions projects and supports missionaries. CBM also enables short-term mission trips designed for church groups, giving people an opportunity to do and experience ministry in another culture. Our partners in missions through CBM are currently the Carters and the Kennys.
Jeff & Deann Carter
Jeff and Deann serve with CBM in Europe, based in the Czech Republic where Jeff is Youth Ministry Training Coordinator and Advisor for the European Baptist Federation (EBF), an organization comprised of Baptist federations and unions from across 51 countries. He is also a faculty lecturer at the International Baptist Theological Seminary where he developed youth leadership courses for the Masters and Certificate programs.
As part of his responsibilities Jeff created Horizons, an online training course in international youth leadership for volunteer youth workers. The program is offered in numerous languages and is available in over 20 countries. The Carters have two sons, Zachary and Matthew.
Aaron & Erica Kenny
Aaron and Erica Kenny serve as Africa Team Leaders, providing continental leadership and support for CBM’s team, partnerships, and programs. In addition, the Kennys direct CBM’s Muslim Ministries in Kenya where they are involved in strengthening local churches in reaching out to their Muslim neighbors through integral mission. They are leading peace and reconciliation initiatives, self-help groups, literacy projects, food security and micro-enterprise development.” At the heart of integral mission is the great command to love God and to love our neighbors – these two cannot be separated.”
