Larger Life Foundation Moravian Church Northern Province

The contribution of the Larger Life grant gives the Board of Elders Canadian District an opportunity to dream and cast new visions for its ministry. The funds received are a relatively small portion of the work realized through the life of the Canadian District, but these funds do significant things. The BECD is very grateful for the significant support received through the Larger Life Foundation and its wise stewarding of blessed resources.
