Woodstock Wesleyan Coordinates Community Impact!

Woodstock Wesleyan (Dale MacDonald) hosted a benefit breakfast for the employees of Covered Bridge Potato Chips who lost their jobs when the plant burned down last week. There were 900+ in attendance and over $30,000 was raised to put in a trust to help the employees temporarily as they figure out what is next for each of their families.

  • Woodstock Wesleyan was the host facility and provided volunteers. Hats off to Julie Calhoun-Williams, a part of the Woodstock Wesleyan family who serves on town council, for organizing the whole event! The entire Town Council helped cook and serve. Associate Pastor Neil Horner shared, ‘It was great to be partnered with our community leaders to help meet the needs of the people we all serve and everything needed was donated by local businesses & individuals.’

Many of the employees themselves showed up for the breakfast, and stayed the entire morning. It was like a family grieving together. They ate breakfast, then hung out in our lobby talking, taking pictures, & hugging each other goodbye. It had the sense that they were given a space to begin healing and moving forward.

Way to go WW family – well done!!!

Several pastors and network/district leaders from The Wesleyan Church of Canada were present this past week for the sold out Exponential Conference (5000+) in Orlando, Florida. The Wesleyan shoulder event, Saturate, hosted by Dr. Ed Love’s CMAD team was an inspiring gathering of nearly 500 leaders from across North America.

  • Jason (Christine) Blaikie (Framework) was present and will be sharing some multiplication resources in the Pastor Cluster Leaders Quarterly Zoom this Wednesday. It was a meaningful time of connection for more than half of the district superintendents as we convened with GS Wayne Schmidt last Monday.
Stay tuned for a special focus next week on the launch of the Wesleyan Diaspora Network!

Speaking of multiplication….

Moncton Wesleyan (Jim Clements), is embarking on an exciting expansion of its ministry footprint. With the full endorsement of the DBA, LBA of Moncton Wesleyan, as well as the LAC of Miramichi Wesleyan, Pastor Jim announced to the congregation this past weekend a significant development: Moncton Wesleyan will transition into a multisite ministry, incorporating Miramichi Wesleyan as a campus/Kingdom location starting May 1st.

  • This announcement marks a historic moment in the journey of Moncton Wesleyan, which traces its founding back to the late 1800s in Moncton. From its origins as a single church, it is now evolving into one church family with multiple locations. However, Pastor Jim didn’t stop there. He shared with the congregation his sense of God’s urging to press onward, stating, “Keep your foot on the gas and continue to move forward.” In line with this vision, Moncton Wesleyan will be launching yet another campus/Kingdom location in Shediac come this fall.

This multisite vision launches with a fervent commitment to ensuring that every individual—whether children, youth, young adults, adults, families, or seniors, everyone—has ample opportunity to encounter the Gospel and respond to Christ’s call on their lives, Moncton Wesleyan is poised for an exciting season of growth and outreach, creating a strong evangelical presence in communities in the years ahead!

Tanya Nace and Natalie Gidney just returned from a survey trip to Sierra Leone (SL) and Liberia, both located in West Africa. As the official relief and development organization for TWC, World Hope works closely in partnership with the International Wesleyan Church in both countries.

  • They met with both National Superintendents, JESUS film directors and some district superintendents; they also saw Wesleyan schools (grades 1-12) where World Hope runs Child Sponsorship programs. They witnessed deep borehole wells and solar powered water systems, health projects saving the lives of women and children every day, the largest Christian radio station in SL run by World Hope, a medical supply distribution, anti-trafficking ministries including a safe house for survivors and much more!

God is up to amazing things in both of these countries. Tanya shared, “We celebrated International Women’s Day last week and it was humbling to connect with dozens of Sierra Leonian and Liberian women who are using their gifts and skills working with World Hope to bring dignity and healing to some of the poorest and most vulnerable people in these countries- all in the way of Jesus.”
