- The third annual All Nations Service at Moncton (Joel Gorveatte) highlighted the integration of large numbers of newcomers into the church body over the last three years. Outreach & Missions Pastor Nathan Adams preached his final message on staff as he prepares to beginning his Ph.D. in Theology this fall.
- The church now has believers from Nigeria, Brazil, other countries in Latin America, South Africa, the Philippines, and India, along with growing numbers from Korea, China, the Middle East, Europe, and other African countries. New milestones of leadership development are being reached including the first immigrant students beginning ministry studies this fall at Kingswood University.
- One of the comments posted during the livestream service stated, “We are from Brazil, watching every Sunday. Soon, we are moving to Moncton and will be part of this great family. May God bless you!” #globalcollective
