The ECM office in Australia is working with a dedicated team of office staff, Council members and volunteers for the selection, sending and support of missionaries. In addition, the office mobilizes Christians in Australia and New Zealand to help build a different Europe, through prayer and financial support.

The ECM office in NZ works closely with the Australian office.

Office Team
The office team is responsible for the daily running of the ECM office. Recruiting and supervising (candidate) missionaries. Also we take care of the adminstration of funds, information, communication and facility support.

Council
The Council of ECM Australia and New Zealand consists of a number of skilled, committed people with diverse backgrounds. They oversee the governance of the Mission.

Volunteers
In addition to helping with regular office tasks (eg. secretarial work or making newsletters), also of great importance is the work of mobilisers with ECM - the ministry of sharing the needs and opportunities of Europe in churches, groups and colleges.

Facts

Economy
Advanced market economy balanced between services, mining and agricultural exports, industry and tourism. Which results in a strong middle class, although poverty has increased.
The fragile ecology is under constant threat - the severe drought has decimated the agriculture, and bush fires cost many lives and millions of dollars damage.
