VOMC in Canada is part of a worldwide family of missions that was started through the influence of Pastor Richard Wurmbrand. This family of missions is collectively called the International Christian Association (ICA). The missions are bound together by common purposes and cooperate in projects around the world. This does not mean every mission has the same programs and resources. Each mission is independent, self-supporting and self-governing, but we do work closely together in many areas, and our executives meet together annually to share vision and ministry outcomes.
