We warmly welcome Rev.
We had a chance to sit down with
Q: After hearing your testimony, what encouragements can you give to those that may be walking down a similar path to yours? People who have grown up in the church, in a Christian home, but feel like it may not be for them.
A: To parents, they should never give up. God changed me overnight despite the number of years my parents tried to change me. God will always use what we, as parents, sow in our children. We may not see the results right away but in God’s time, the results will come.
To kids, the best way to move forward is to give it a try for yourself. It won’t work when you’re doing it for someone else. Remove the influence of your parents out of the picture. It’s not about doing it to please or displease them, try it for yourself. There
Q: From Congo to the St. Lawrence District. How did God lead you here?
A: Simply speaking, I made myself available to what God can
Q: What are you most excited about and looking forward to in your new role?
A: I look forward to seeing a new generation, a renewed generation of leaders. Leaders who are on fire for the Lord and push boundaries through the power of God. People getting excited about Christ, excited about their faith, and the message we carry of Christ
Q: We heard about some challenges and exciting visions you have for the District, could you also share some encouraging things that you see already happening there?
A: There are many encouraging things happening in Quebec. I think the biggest asset we have in the district is the men and women who are passionately serving God. I’ve been spending my first two months meeting them and every time I meet a worker, I am impressed by what God is doing in and through them. A second asset is the different areas of growth that are happening right now within the ethnic churches such as the Chinese ministries and the Vietnamese ministries. One of our New Ventures’ churches, the180, takes on a whole new approach that is dynamic in re-engaging people with Jesus. All of this tells me what we are dreaming of isn’t a dream, it can be a reality. It is possible. It has happened right here in Quebec.
We know in the season of transition, there may be uncertainties and fear. Please continue to pray for
• Pray for courage, unity and peace during this period of transition.
• Pray for continued spiritual deliverance and revival, trust that God can do more in the St. Lawrence District, and churches can be more than conquerors for God’s glory.
• Pray for leaders to be raised up and used by God.
• Pray for churches to be more mission-focused and mission-minded.
