Global Partners Celebrates Bob & Brenda Bagley!

Last week Global Partners held a retirement celebration in honour of 42 years of the career missionary service of Rev. Dr. Bob & Brenda Bagley. Bob’s leadership as Africa Area Director provided a wise transition to National leadership. The Bagley’s have provided key senior-level influence through many roles as GP has adapted and embraced 21st Century models of missions. Their laureate service alongside the International Wesleyan Church spanned the GP leadership of five executive directors of Global Partners – Dr. Robert Lytle, Dr. Wayne Wright, Dr. Don Bray, Dr. HC Wilson, and Dr. Dennis Jackson (picture above with Gwen Jackson).

  • Bob shared, “[This] final season of our missionary career was deeply fulfilling. We are hoping to make it up for the second half of Beulah this summer.”

Pastoral Transitions

  • It was announced at Connection (Matt Forrest) that Sheryl York has been appointed Interim Lead Pastor for one year beginning in July. Sheryl & Dwayne will be present for a day of ministry with the Connection Church family on March 17th.
A Ministry, Church, & Province Partner to Serve!

Since bringing Souls Harbour into the facility in October, Connection (Matt Forrest) is doing community ministry in the building 18-20 hours a day, 7 days a week. Matt shared, “We have seen 1200+ individual faces come through the doors that have not been through our doors prior. All of the new congregational growth in Connection is an overflow of that ministry. Since Pleasant Street Mission has opened its doors it has already provided shelter for 22 individuals at a 15-bed capacity.”

  • This provincial government partnership with Connection Church through Soul’s Harbour may open the door for other NS Wesleyan churches to with community need to offer funded shelters next winter. This is the first time in this capacity the NS Government has partnered with a church instead of just renting it.

General Superintendent Emerita Dr. Jo Anne Lyon blessed the Framework (Jason Blaikie) family this weekend as she closed out the “Pursuit of God” series. She spoke about what God can do if you pursue Him and shared about how God is moving in other churches and nations to inspire faith in what God can continue to do in Presque Isle Maine.

  • Jason shared, “We heard testimony after testimony from Dr Lyon of how God can take what we offer, however small and use it for His Glory. Such an amazing weekend and we are so grateful for this Global Kingdom Leader as she inspired our Church to step out in faith with what God has already given us.”

World Hope’s Hope Garden project leader, Jenny Gaines-Rattray hosted Scott and Penny Richardson (Houlton Wesleyan) on the island of Grand Bahama to serve in education, food distribution and discipleship. Transformational development is holistic and they were able to provide food for ongoing food programs for children, volunteered at the Grand Bahama Children’s home to cook meals, assist with a discipleship program, and provided encouragement to the staff and children. They also served meals at a local church-run preschool and volunteered in the community of 8-Mile Rock with Lighthouse Wesleyan Outreach Ministries to run a youth night. They also visited the Beacon School which serves children with disabilities and planned for some future and long term projects.

  • Scott and Penny shared, “We were very privileged to serve with Hope Garden Project in Freeport, Grand Bahama for the last week! We have met and worked with some special and godly Bahamians who are doing great work for the Kingdom. We have been especially blessed to serve alongside our Team Leader, Jenny Gaines who is a special blessing from God! Thanks to all who supported our project with money and prayers, we plan to return and bring some of you with us!”
