This impressive new one-of-a-kind sign at CenterPoint (Glen McVicar) includes beautiful stained-glass insets. Some time ago, Roger Sullivan was invited as a special guest to share his testimony.

A small team from Kingswood University (Dr. Matthew & Chandra Friedman, & student Dinalthero Charles) and Houghton Wesleyan Church (Dr. James and Donna Zoller) just returned from a brief visit of encouragement with the Wesleyan Standard Church of Egypt. This was the first North American team visit since the election of new National Superintendent, Rev. Kamal Lotfy (pictured 2nd from right).
They were received with generous hospitality and learned as much as they taught a class at the local Bible college in Cairo and in the still-under construction church complex in Badr City outside of Cairo. They also visited the church in Nekheilah, the first Wesleyan Standard Church established in Egypt, as well as churches in Asyut and Luxor, strengthening ties and partnership between our churches (and Kingswood University) in North America.

Speaking of an amazing Kingdom leader…

We are so very effectively served by our Atlantic District Executive Director, Tami Mutch-Ketch. Her work ethic is only surpassed by her love for others and her wisdom and compassion in serving the complex challenges of our Camp Ministry. She models lay leadership serving alongside clergy at the highest levels of Kingdom influence and impact. May God raise up an army of these leaders in our midst in the years j

Points to Ponder
  • God doesn’t give us what we can handle. He helps us handle what we have been given. (Joanne Ozon)
  • Experience is the best teacher. (Edgar Dale) #DalesCone
  • The history of the church reminds us of the permanence of mission and the transience of modality. Our mission is permanent. Our modality can and should change. (Claude Alexander)

One Conference was formed out of the desire to see churches in our region united in their pursuit of Jesus. Over the last few years, we’ve gone from being in ONE arena with massive crowds and energy, to being exclusively online during the pandemic. This year, we are excited to take a step toward having everyone together again soon! One Conference will be hosted at three sites throughout the region this year in Halifax, Moncton, and Saint John! Combined, these three sites will be able to accommodate everyone who wants to attend, and we’re thrilled to make this transition toward being together in ONE room once again in 2023. CLICK HERE for more information about how to register your youth group for your preferred location.

I joined David Zigler (Coastal Community) and AJ Plaizier (Yarmouth) in February to share our perspectives and experiences in developing and implementing what Pete Scazzero calls a Rule of Life.
