It’s weather outside has been frigid this week; but inside Heritage, the spiritual climate inside has been warm and inviting. Over the past week, I’ve (Rick) enjoyed teaching a pastoral leadership course as well as a preaching course to sharp young seminary students. Linda and I also had the joy of speaking on marriage and ministry to a gathering of pastors and ministry leaders.
Last week, we had our annual Heritage Board retreat. I thank the Lord for Board members who are committed to the mission God has given Heritage. We had a tender time as we reflected on God’s faithfulness in the past and as we prayerfully envisioned what God might have for the school in the future. Exciting times.
Here are some prayer requests I’d ask you to remember in the coming week.
Missions Conference: Next Monday through Wednesday is our annual Missions Conference—one of the highlights of the year at Heritage. We cancel classes for several days to focus on God’s heart for the world and our part in sharing gospel locally and globally. Please ask God to work through the Conference to send out workers into His harvest field (Luke 10:2).
Marketing Director: We are currently interviewing for the position of Marketing Director at Heritage. We are looking for a person with a vibrant faith in Christ and a passion to help us get the word out about Heritage. (If you know someone who should apply, let me know).
ESL Outreach: Linda works with Heritage students to offer several ESL (English as a Second Language) classes each week. One class meets in the local library and the other on our campus. It’s been a joy to meet the new Canadians who come to the classes. Pray for the friendship outreach that takes place through these classes.
Thank you for your interest and intercession!
