Dear pastors, missionaries, chaplains and friends,
Steve here… Hundreds of delegates from our Fellowship churches are currently at our 2014 Fellowship National Conference (FNC) in Toronto. I’m hoping you are here!
However, in the event you were unable to come, I thought I would encourage you to pray for your church delegates as they gather for prayer, praise, and preaching.
Our key speakers are Dr. Ed Stetzer and Pastor Dom Ruso. Ed and his books are familiar to many of us. Dom pastors Temple Baptist in Sarnia, ON, and has a particular interest in reaching people in our post-Christian society.
This year’s theme is “Finishing the Task: Joining Jesus on Mission”, and there are 21 informative workshops to enrich our delegates.
A key feature of this week’s National Conference will be:
· Reports on what God has been doing both within our Regions and globally through our missionaries.
· Presentation of our new “Fellowship Direction Document”—a statement of Mission to come alongside our Fellowship Statement of Faith.
· News regarding FAIR (Fellowship Aid and International Relief) and its future profile.
· A special time to thank our current and former French Mission missionaries as we retire the French Mission on December 31, 2014.
· News on our new Fellowship Foundation
· Lots of fellowship, fun and other goodies!
Many of our churches took the time yesterday (Nov 9) to pray for our Fellowship during our annual “Fellowship Day of Prayer”. God is good! He continues to use our churches to make an unforgettable Kingdom impact both locally and globally.
Let’s all pray together for a God-honouring time at 2014 FNC in Toronto.
Have a blessed week!
