CABC (Convention of Atlantic Baptist Churches) – April 15th, 2018
• Leadership Development – we need strong & capable leaders in our churches. We’re committed to walking with and helping them live up to their calling as they lead in our churches and neighbourhoods. Pray that God will continue to raise up leaders to lead well. Do you see someone that needs some encouragement to lead? Tap them on the shoulder and tell them. Looking for resources to help discern the call or take the next steps – http://yourcalling.ca.
• Pray for Rev. Dr. Garth Williams, Associate Executive Minister & Director of the Centre for Leadership Development. We are committed to seeing our pastors not just survive but thrive. The overall health and missional strength of our churches depend on it. Along with broader responsibilities, Garth gives oversight to the Board of Ministerial Standards & Education. Take a moment this week to send Garth a note of encouragement via our website (firstname.lastname@example.org).
