Pastor Bruce's Ministry Update VI

Now then we are ambassadors for Christ... 

 

 

Hello Fellow Laborers and Partners.

Great things are happening during this full-time apostolic season and we are thankful to God for many of you who have partnered with us in prayer and financial support.  Here is a brief update on what's been happening with us. As you read, would you pray about becoming a monthly partner with us?

14th YEAR ANNIVERSARY

We had an awesome time on Sunday, July 22, 2018 as we celebrated 14 years. God moved. Kevin Lavar gave his all in worship and all were blessed. God sent His Word. The altars were full of people turning to the Lord and repenting. We look forward with hope and faith to God's glory being revealed through us for the honor of His Name.

COLLEGE STUDENT SUNDAY

When we randomly met Emily at a coffee shop, it was clear that we should partner with her to help reach University of Maryland students with the Gospel. Emily is Asian-American and God is using her in the Navigators campus ministry.

When a pastor friend called about Iyahna and her vision to reach Howard University, we said "we are in.” Iyahna is a campus minister at Howard and another university in the DC-area.

On this week, I meet with folks at Montgomery College in Takoma Park, about one mile from where we meet on Sundays. God has opened a door for me to do some work there with students both academically and spiritually.

I have been meeting with Emily, Iyahna, and college students from Advance about "College Student Sunday”, which is happening Sunday, July 29, 2018! Together we have planned and marketed this "casual, authentic encounter with God" aimed at reaching unchurched college students and providing a safe space for them to explore their faith on campus.

In addition, I have been disicpling a group who will partner with Emily and Iyahna in the month of August to share the Gospel on their respective campuses.

Your support of our full-time missionary pastoral ministry has helped enable this. Thank you.

GODLY LEADERSHIP SCHOOL

It remains that the greatest opportunity the church has is to raise up godly leaders. GLS is one of God's tools in this generation and I am pleased to announce that during this season we have achieved several good outcomes:

  • We finalized the GLS brochure and curriculum. ( Click here  to download.)
  • GLS is now being integrated into the Leader's Institute's curriculum to help desposit leadership principles into the next generation.
  • From Switzerland to Oakland, we have begun reaching out to Christian leaders to bring GLS to their communities.
  • Plans are underway to bring GLS I and GLS IV to Silver Spring in the fall.

Your support of our full-time missionary pastoral ministry has helped enable this. Thank you.

Time would fail to mention the ongoing work of standing with Bishop Boone regarding the Germany mission, working with leaders in Malawi, coffee shop visits with people for mentoring and ministry, the day-to-day work of ministry, mentoring leaders, and the impact on the next generation through the Leaders Institute.

Your partnership has helped enable this.

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

- Philippians 4:19
