It’s Monday Again

This deserving man was celebrated on Saturday for serving on Caton’s Island for 25 summers! Director Dean Stephenson was duly honoured with a surprise tag-on to the annual staff awards event. Executive Director Tami Mutch-Ketch shared, “Tears streamed down his face as Deam declared to his staff, ‘I stand as proof that God can use anyone!’ Dean continues to model faithfulness to our Father, love for those he leads, and total reliance on the work of the Holy Spirit in his life. I give praise for his leadership and the Kingdom impact that has been achieved over this 25-year period.”

A ten-minute video was masterfully compiled with greetings from senior and former staff. This highlight brought tears to the eyes and joy to the heart of this godly man who has poured out his life for a quarter century into God’s vision to see thousands of lives transformed and hundreds of young leaders developed.

And his wonderful wife, Carol, has been by his side with her own legacy of investment in generations of raising young leaders! Dean has embodied the words of Craig Groeschel, “Our world needs humble, confident, bold and integrity-infused leadership.”

Those who have worked closely with Dean know his philosophy of success. “Hire for character, teach the skills.” Hundreds of staff and thousands of children and youth have experienced the results of this teaching by growing in relationship with Christ while learning social, emotional, work, and life-long citizenship skills.

An exciting word from Tim Long (Live Well), “Got to baptize this young man on Saturday who tuned into our first online service a few months ago…really magnifies God’s power to reach people in crazy times. He is now plugged into Hillside (Jay Guptill) and recently connected with one of their discipleship groups 🙌 God is good!”

What if COVID-19 is the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity
for leaders to think more strategically
about doing church?
