We’re hearing a good deal about “essential workers” these days. These are the men and women who keep our hospitals, long-term care homes, grocery stores and other essential businesses open at a time when much of the country is shut down.
It has been encouraging to see the great outpouring of gratitude for these essential workers who daily put themselves at risk. Those on the front lines deserve our love, respect and support.
I’m convinced Heritage College and Seminary is engaged in training essential workers for Canada and the nations. The men and women who study at Heritage are preparing to be front line workers for God’s kingdom. Many will serve as pastors or ministry leaders, providing spiritual care in churches and communities across our nation. Others will relocate to work in gospel-needy countries around the globe. Each of them will spend themselves for the sake of Christ and those in need.
Although the COVID-19 pandemic caused us to postpone our graduation ceremony this spring, it couldn’t stop us from launching over ninety new graduates as “essential workers” for Christ.
I want to express my thanks to God for Heritage grads—from this year and previous years—who sacrificially serve the Lord Jesus in our needy world.
I also want to thank each of you who generously support Heritage by praying for us, pointing students our way and providing financial support. Thank you for standing with us in this essential work!
The month of June brings us to our financial year-end (June 30). Like many ministries, we’ve been adversely impacted by the pandemic. Even after drastically reducing expenses, we are still needing help to finish our fiscal year in the black. If you have a desire to support the school at this critical time, you can donate here. We would greatly appreciate your investment in training essential workers for Christ’s service.
