Mindi and I meeting with ethnic leaders from SoCal! On Saturday, August 30 we had a little gathering of leaders from Cambodia and Latin America for a little breakfast get together with Jes�s Mu�oz (our Cambodian brother left before the picture and our Japanese friends were on a retreat!). This gathering may emerge into a network of ethnic leaders who can spur one another on to make disciples and plant churches in the nations of our world!

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!

Engagement Stations &
E Talks @FellowSHIFT

At the FellowShift Conference this summer, Encompass sought to do something which would engage people in reaching the nations. We set up stations we called "Engagement Stations" with a variety of different ways to participate. We also created an online version of the Engagment Stations so you can participate right now! Check out all 7 online!

We also shared a variety of short 8 minute or less Engaging Talks which we dubbed
 E Talks. These were all videoed and will be available for viewing soon!  I was able to share on Coalitions as well, so stay tuned! If it turned out well, I'll pass it on and if not, well...you'll never know! :-) 
Cameroon Leadership Training Coalition 

Just yesterday, I talked via Skype with Jason Carmean in Cameroon!  He and his family have been on the ground for one month and are adjusting well.  

   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."  


One of the ways you can help is by supporting the first modules of Bible training supporting the first modules of Bible training--please consider a gift!

Pray for the Ongoing Ministry of the Ch�teau de St. Albain      


Yesterday, September 3, 2014, was declared as a Day of Prayer for the Ch�teau by  

Jo�l Rongier, president of Ch�teau Association.   


Please join in praying and fasting for God to supply the following personnel needs for the Ch�teau so that ministries will continue without interruption:

1) A European business manager and coordinator: Pray especially for wisdom and direction for the Ch�teau steering committee to find the right people to fit into ministry leadership.

2) An American support couple: To care for the responsibilities of welcoming visitors, preparing and serving meals, maintenance and grounds work.   


Our Ch�teau Coalition is seeking to publish a coffee-table book (in English, French and German) to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of ministry and funds are needed to get it rolling.  

Catalyzing Networks     


Over the last few months, I've been part of catalyzing two really important networks: 


One is around Women in Church Planting. All over the world, women are involved in the church planting endeavor-- moms, businesswomen, educators, missionaries, single women, etc.  Many of these ladies don't have a place to connect with others. Through the leadership of my friends Louise Klawitter and Jessica Robertson, this network has formed a Facebook group that is nurturing this network. It's a secret group to hide the identities of some of our bravest women who are in closed countries, but if you send a message to Louise, she can get you synced up.


A second network is forming for those who are passionate about Adoption, Orphan & Foster Care.  This budding network, in addition to it's Facebook Group is holding monthly Skype calls where folks from all over the world can call in and participate.  Find out more on my blog about this group.  

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!
