VOMC's Accountability Statement

The Voice of the Martyrs Canada (VOMC) places great importance on financial reliability and responsibility. One of the many ways we demonstrate these core values is through our certified membership with the Canadian Council of Christian Charities (CCCC).

The Canadian Council of Christian Charities is an evangelical ministry that advances the cause of Christ by supporting Christian churches and charities with spiritual and practical guidance so they can more readily share the love and message of our Lord Jesus Christ.

CCCC serves over 3,400 charities by providing affordable resources that help them operate in an exemplary, healthy, and effective way. Their team of accountants and ministry credential holders are available to help with specific questions and complex issues with an approach that unites faith and practice. CCCC's in-house lawyers provide valuable resources and legal information and represent the interests of the Christian charitable sector in submissions to government and lawmakers.1

The executive leadership and governance of VOMC do not take for granted the trust shown to us by our donors. Accordingly, we remain committed to ensuring such support is merited and verifiable based on the highest degree of accountability. VOMC's approach to ministry involves being reliable with the entrusted resources and responsible for administering these resources to fulfill the vision and mission of VOMC. To that end, VOMC submits to an annual CCCC audit and occasional on-site audits to ensure compliance with regulatory bodies, and that appropriate checks and balances are in place. Year after year, VOMC has met the CCCC requirements and achieved its annual Seal of Approval.

The reliability of VOMC encompasses honesty, transparency, discretion, and adherence to Biblical standards of ethics and professional processes. Responsibility includes the practice of open and frequent reporting, proper administrative oversight, appropriate budgetary guidance with Board endorsement, as well as annual third-party audits by accredited accounting firms.

VOMC respects the designation (project allocation) of every gift and the response of our supporters to the Lord's leading in sustaining this ministry. It is a privilege to be entrusted with such a commission, which necessitates the utmost diligence in every detail of operation to ensure that all resources are wisely and adequately distributed and applied.

We pray the Lord will continue to lead and guide VOMC in this area as we strive to bring glory to God by serving His persecuted church. 

"We take this course so that no one should blame us about this
generous gift that is being administered by us, for we aim at what is
honourable not only in the Lord's sight but also in the sight of man."
2 Corinthians 8:20-21 ESV
