Summer 20172.PNGSummer is finally here and I want to encourage all of you to spend time with your families, to rest and recharge … to be still and know that He is God.  Before you know it, turn around twice and the fall preparations will be upon us.

It was such a pleasure to see many of you at the Canada West and Canada East AGC Regional Conferences.

The Canada West Conference hosted at McGregor, Manitoba drilled down deep into the high calling for each of us in the AGC to be disciple makers. Discipling is necessary in so many ways. We must disciple because it is the command of Jesus to His Church. We must disciple to equip God’s people to become mature in service, worship and leadership. We are raising up people for the Kingdom and for the Church as a divine expression of that Kingdom on earth. 

Summer 20174.PNGThe Canada East Conference was held at Fair Havens Ministries and was a blessing to all who attended. There was a sense of God moving among us, calling us all to “Chase the Lions “of evil and fear, and to gain the victory in the name of Jesus.

My prayer is that you “Disciple Making Lion Chasers” will find time this summer to recharge yourselves. I commend to you once again to take the time to read Henri Nouwen’s book on Christian leadership, In the Name of Jesus

It was recently my privilege to help lead some National Christian leaders through the disciplines contained in this short, yet powerful book. If you have read it before, read it again.  If you have not read it, find it and let Nouwen and the Spirit of God minister to your soul.

 

 

Blessings,
