Resources for You – At Power to Change, our staff are constantly thinking of ways to help equip everyday Christians like you and I to engage in spiritual conversations with the people around us, and to help them discover Jesus. So, I wanted to take a big part of this newsletter and focus on a variety of resources that Power to Change offers, in the hope that some of them may be useful to you this fall as you connect with non-Christian friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc!
Family Update – Shannon’s pregnancy, Silas in pre-school, Missions Feast, family trips, and more!
The next edition of my Power to Change ministry newsletter is now available – download it now! Here’s what’s in it:
“What exactly do you do?” - find out a bit about the massive, year-long project that I’ve been working on, and why I enjoy working on this computer stuff!
Student Mission Trips - about 140 students are currently on Power to Change missions trips in countries around the world. I love hearing about what God is doing in and through these students.
Family Update - Silas is 3 and Toby is 1 1/2, and we love watching them grow and develop! Shannon had a fantastic learning experience teaching at BCIT this past semester, and we’ve both been able to serve in some rewarding ways at our church.
Here is what’s included in this edition of my Power to Change ministry newsletter (download now):
Building Families in Haiti - The Global Aid Network has been helping re-build after the 2010 earthquake devastated Haiti, but recently, some staff from FamilyLife went to equip Christian leaders in ministry to marriages and families.
Ministry Through Sport - At our Power to Change staff conference a few months ago, I got to sit in on a planning session with staff from our Athletes in Action ministry. I was inspired by their passion and creativity, and got some great ideas for how our Information Technology department could better support these front-line missionaries in our organization.
Family Update - The last few months have included a lot of fun activities and trips, but also a not-so-fun, unplanned home renovation!
DRIME – Learn more about this amazing ministry within Power to Change that uses choreographed street drama to share the gospel with those on the city streets around the world in a creative, non-threatening, and engaging way.
Family update – updates on Shannon and I, our boys (Toby is 6 months old already!), our trip to Ontario, and more.
Every few months, Jason writes up a newsletter to send to people who are interested in his ministry at Power to Change. In this edition, you can read about:
New Resource Centre Website: My big project the last few months at Power to Change has been developing a new website for our Resource Centre (check it out at store.powertochange.org)
Crave: The Documentary: Produced by pastor and author Erwin McManus in partnership with Power to Change, this film was shot in Vancouver and reveals some surprising things about people’s openness to spiritual things (watch it online at powertochange.com/itv/spirituality/crave-the-documentary/)
On the Home Front: We’re finding exciting new ways to get involved with our church, and are enjoying the changes we see in our son almost every day (get more updates from Shannon’s blog at inmeta4s.blogspot.com)
