It’s Monday Again

Rev. Jacqui Hill (Deep Water)
Rev. Liz Hoyt (Moncton)
Rev. Bradford Jordan (Blacks Harbour)
Rev. Victoria Rowe (Framework)
Rev. Ron Winters (Kings)
In a brief 25-minute Zoom ceremony this Wednesday, Dr. Steve Elliott joined DBMD Chair, Rev. Dale MacDonald, and myself to lead in the Act of Ordination for the Class of 2020. The service was preceded with a short visit and surprise live greeting from Dr. Wayne Schmidt. CLICK HERE to view the three-minute video of his comments for the Ordinands of all districts. All six will join the Ordinand Class of 2021 at the Beulah Tabernacle next summer. #raisingleaders
A touching moment in the Ordination Ceremony was shared by Rev. Dave Rowe (Crosspoint) just before offering the Prayer of Enduemnet for his daughter and the other five. He displayed the laminated cherished note on the left which was doodled by Victoria as a young girl 20 years ago on the day he was Ordained in the Beulah Tabernacle. Then Dave displayed the note on the right which he will give to his daughter once the border opens. Only God knows all the intertwined generations of the Ordained through the branches of our Atlantic family tree in the district’s 132-year spiritual heritage. #spiritualfoundations

Five years ago this weekend Carl & Evelyn Brewer restarted Hope Wesleyan Church in Shelburne, NS. Current Lead Pastor Joanne Ozon shared, “[Yesterday] we celebrated Hope Wesleyan’s 5th Anniversary. God held the key tightly in His hand and resurrected life once again! We serve an AMAZING and on time GOD.” CLICK HERE to enjoy this video celebration of the church’s rebirth.Joanne & Mike have demonstrated Spirit-filled resolve and sacrificial leadership this year in her on-going battle with cancer and back complications. In a conversation with her this Tuesday, Joanne shared with tears how much she has been impacted by the ministry of the tribe with hospital visits by Shawn Craven, Brad Eisan, & Vince Robertson as well as timely technical support and coaching during COVID-19 from Tom Cann, AJ Plaizier, & Kevin Myers with pulpit supply from Natalie Gidney. #strongertogether

This week all credentialed ministers appointed to a local church will receive an email with information about your assigned Pastor Cluster Leader (pictured above) and the other members of your group. This reconfiguration of our pastoral zones into 25 Pastor Clusters will include three components each month: Pastoral Development, 2025 Vision, & Cluster Community.Any lay ministers on staff in our churches and/or any credentialed ministers under appointment other than a local church, may also contact me if you would like to join a Pastor Cluster. Questions always welcome as we embrace this important step forward.

New Pastor Orientation was held at Beulah Camp on Friday for new Lead Pastors, first-time staff and newly credentialed ministers under district appointment. Karrilee, Tami, & I enjoyed our interaction with this excellent group of Kingdom leaders!
Executive Director Tami Mutch-Ketch chaired the Beulah Session of the Camp Board this Thursday at Heartland. Board members committed unanimously to an action-oriented advisory posture as they received positive reports of Virtual Beulah Family Camp and the success of the “Bring your Bubble to Beulah” summer staycation campaign. Check out the details below for the Open House event this Saturday!
Aaron Reimer (Island) shared, “One of the guys in our Root Group had a friend who has been going through a rough time. We got together for a couple hours before our weekly meeting to split and deliver a load of wood to him.” #contextualeffectiveness
It was Mental Wellness Week at Kingswoood University. This annual focus goes deeper in awareness of self and others, as wellness is examined.
