Monday Musings – 04/10/10
Greetings from beautiful British Columbia…
Today marks the beginning of the Conference on the Ministry for the BC District. I am honored to be a part of this gathering of pastors, church leaders and bible college students. What a thrill it will be to address pastor’s on Wednesday morning and then spend the entire afternoon with the student body of Summit Pacific College!
One cannot ask for a better combinations of leaders to address – practitioners who are practicing in the field and protégé who are preparing in the classroom.
A protégé is “a person under the patronage, protection, or care of someone interested in his or her career or welfare”. This definition reminds me of the responsibility that lies before me this week. I have a deep interest in the career and welfare of pastors and church leaders in Canada and around the world. Perhaps more importantly is the protection and care of those who are preparing themselves for future ministry in the PAOC. So, this week I humbly admit the magnitude of the task I face in British Columbia, especially this coming Wednesday. I am grateful for the opportunity and thank you in advance for your prayers.
What also hits me is the awesome privilege MJ and I will have as of January 2011. We have been given the opportunity to care for, protect and take interest in the welfare of pastors and bible college students across the continent of Africa and around the world, from the soon to be leadership center in Kitwe Zambia. I thank God daily for His incredible faithfulness! MJ and I continue to make Psalm 90:17 our prayer: “May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us – yes, establish the work of our hands.”
Until next time…
