It’s Monday Again

CEO Tanya Nace (World Hope International Canada) was recently featured in WesLife with her article entitled, Honouring Women Who Work in Disaster Relief. Tanya shared, “We must continue to recognize the whole body of Christ and actively put men and women into positions of leadership and servanthood.” We are blessed by her stellar leadership in our Wesleyan tribe! #raisingleaders
Journey (Matt Maxwell) celebrated a huge milestone this month with the volunteers of their food program. During the pandemic they have provided food weekly and have served over 65,000 meals! Matthew 25:35, “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat…” #contextualeffectiveness

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY: We have shingles. No, not THAT kind. Cedar shingles. They are already purchased, but we are running out of time to finish shingling the exterior of the Choate Dining Hall expansion and could use a hand to get the job done before the end of summer. CLICK HERE for more details on how to get involved.

Video Link Correction: Last week’s IMA featured a greeting from our General Superintendent, Dr. Wayne Schmidt, provided for district conferences across North America this summer. Apologies for the incorrect link – CLICK HERE to watch this video.Our GS recently shared his passion to raise up Kingdom force, “I’m struck by how many began exploring their calling as a result of others having seen something in them. Would you pray for those whom the Spirit prompts to have an ‘ICNU’ conversation – ‘I see in you’ something you may not yet see in yourself? We bring our observations to their attention and trust the Holy Spirit to bring what is seen to conclusion. These are often transforming conversations leading to significant spiritual discernment. And pray for those who would benefit from participating in Live Sent designed to help individuals discover their calling and discern their next step (www.wesleyan.org/LiveSent).”

We’ve watched them grow up in our churches. And now they are spreading their wings. We’ve all heard the statistics about young adults and the risks they face in their faith journey as they head to college. But what if there was something we could do that has proven to reverse these trends? What if there was a tangible way to increase the percentile from 17% to 77% of those who maintain their walk with God and keep growing in Him? That’s not a made up number. STAY TUNED in the weeks ahead for how you can mobilize your church to reverse this trend with your young adults.

Summer is a great time to explore new ministry resources. Here are a few that may be particularly helpful as you are in the final stretch of preparation for the fall launch of ministries.

Points to Ponder

  • Wisdom is best shared by saying less, not more. (Kevin Campbell)
  • Fear and anxiety are minimized when we maximize our time together with those who make us better. (James Albright)
  • We are growing increasingly fragmented and divided by an ever-narrowing explosion of sub-orthodoxies built on divides, and then elevating such conversations to the level of the Nicene Creed. (James Emery White)

Director of Next Gen Ministries (Church Multiplication and Discipleship), Zach Coffin, recently shared some good news as we prepare to launch student ministry in the fall….
  • Our friends at Ministry Architects have a new FREE resource library just for YOU and your Kids’ & Student Ministry leaders. It includes many helpful templates, dashboards and resources for Kids’, Student and Young Adult Ministry. They are excited to share these resources with you and hope this library will come at the right time as you begin looking forward to the next school year. To view this resource library, click here!

A Word from National Superintendent Steve Elliott: The National office of The Wesleyan Church of Canada has been working in close partnership with Global Partnersand our two district offices to find ways to get donor financial support to our missionaries and missions projects in a more timely manner. Historically, it has taken between 2 to 3 months for a donation made at a local church to find its way through our systems before getting to the front-line missionary or missions project. Our National Superintendent, Dr. Elliott, recently sent out the attached letter to donors, sharing with them how they can get their support to the missionaries much faster. If you are a financial supporter of our GP missionaries and missions projects, kindly consider using these new financial giving options.
