In my last post, I asked you to pray for Heritage’s Ministry Leadership Day. Almost 200 people (students and ministry leaders) took part of the conference. The feedback we’ve heard has been very positive.
Bruce Clemenger, president of the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada, spoke on the significant worldview change that has taken place in Canadian society in the past fifty years. His analysis helped me better understand why our culture has embraced same-sex marriage or doctor-assisted suicide. I’d encourage you to listen to Bruce’s address (you can access it by clicking here). His presentation lasts for the better part of an hour but it will give you a better grasp of the society in which we live.
All those who attended the conference were given a free copy of For Christ and His Church, a new book written by faculty members at Heritage College and Seminary. The book is a compilation of essays dealing with important topics for church ministry: re-engaging people with the Bible, understanding the biblical background when preparing to teach, ministering to single adults, and a number of other critical issues. You can order copies of the book from Heritage (email firstname.lastname@example.org). It’s also available in digital format (click here).
I am delighted that Heritage is able to serve the wider Church through conferences like this Ministry Leadership Day. Pastors were strengthened and stretched through the plenary sessions and workshops. Pastors’ Wives were refreshed and encouraged by the time they spent together with Linda. Heritage students were able to rub shoulders with experienced ministry leaders. God answered our prayers in a wonderful way.
