Dear Team,

It is summer time and hopefully we are all getting opportunities to catch some down time.

For the AGC the last event of spring each year is our Regional Conferences.  Attendees at both conferences were heard to say "fantastic", “best ever", "over way too fast", and "I reconnected!" I fully agree!

Summer is now finally with us and it brings a good opportunity to take a break from the hectic pace of life often demanded by ministry.

Every week I receive a video instruction tip from a golf pro. Actually, I get instruction from two golf pros and believe me I really need all the help I can get. I do try and better my game by diligently watching these lessons and attempt to learn how to improve my putting, correct alignment or pitching.


An encouraging word...

Dear Team,

I once heard Chuck Swindoll say that "people do not care how much you know until they know how much you care." That may or may not have originated with Swindoll but it sure has impacted my life.

Over these next two months we are going to focus on the spiritual and emotional care of our pastors. Like all "people helpers", pastors and Christian leaders who shepherd others are prone to fatigue and burnout.


Focus on Discipleship

This month as we pray we are concentrating on what it means to be and to build disciples.

For those of us who grew up in evangelical churches the concept of disciple can not be divorced from our visual image of Jesus walking down the dusty road with twelve men following Him, listening to His every word. In fact, this is the real meaning of the word disciple-as one who follows a teacher.


Focus on Church Planting

The vision of the AGC is to be a movement of healthy, reproducing churches. To God's glory we strive for healthy spirit filled leadership for all of our churches in Canada. Over the past ten years more than thirty church plants have come into being.

This month, as we pray, I want to focus in on the AGC National Church Planting Commission. Our goal is to see at least five new churches planted every year. Yet to see that happen a number of important factors need to come together.

The AGC Ties to the Past… Foundations for the Present

Nearly one hundred years ago a group of pastors in the greater Hamilton district formed the first churches of what is now known as the AGC of Canada. From these humble but radical beginnings the AGC has now grown to 164 congregations in Canada and sister Associations in three countries outside of Canada.
