The Latest Scoop
Sorry it has been a while since I've communicated to you via this means.  The past few months have been full, as I'm sure they have for you!

Some brief updates:

Mobilizers Mobilizers 24 Hour Retreat

In the fall, a collection of leaders who are mission pastors gathered for a retreat to be share with one another, be challenged and focus on the global work of mission.  See more on my blog

Cameroon Leadership Training Coalition 


I'm excited to be part of a coalition that has committed for 5 years to seeing dozens and dozens of pastoral leaders trained for the more than 45 churches and 30+ church plants in Cameroon. Dave Guiles has described this "as the greatest leadership development need the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches has seen in several generations." Jason & Christy Carmean will be key leaders in this effort! You will be hearing more about this opportunity, but if you are interested in how you can help please let me know!




Coalition to Celebrate the 50th Year of Ministry of the Ch�teau de St. Albain      



In April 2014, we will celebrate one of the most out of the box and effective ministries in our global movement--the Ch�teau!  An 18-month coalition has formed with Jay Hocking as the coordinator to help with the celebration and to come up with long-term USA partnerships.  


We are seeking to publish a coffee-table book (in English, French and German) to celebrate and seed funds are needed ( email me if you want to help).  


Also, we are looking for some staff to serve a support need for a year or two on-site at the Chateau. Please pray and pass it on to those who might consider this opportunity! 



Prayers Answered for the 533 Challenge  


With Encompass World Partners we did a special project called the 533 Challenge at both Momentum and Grace College this year. Through a mission network called Finishing The Task, they have research which shows that 533 people groups (approximately 70 million people) who have little or no opportunity to hear the gospel. In order to direct prayer toward these peoples, we asked students to take part in the "533 Challenge" - a challenge to pray daily for the least-reached over the next 30 days.

Prayer Wall for 533 Challenge

We celebrated that all of the 533 people groups were adopted and prayed for!  


In early December, I attended the annual meeting of Finishing The Task and as of December 5th, we saw the list go down to 449! We praise the Lord that He is still working to reach those who are least reached in our world!


I'd be remiss if I didn't thank YOU for your prayers and support which are vital to the Lord's work in our world.  I'm humbled and privileged to serve our King and alongside you!

From our family to yours we wish you a....
