Summer 2014 Newsletter

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

You can download my latest Power to Change ministry newsletter here. In it, you’ll find:

God’s Provision of Staff – God has provided the staff our IT department needs in some interesting ways over the past few months!

Staff Conference Session – Our annual Power to Change staff conference was in July, and I got the opportunity to lead a session for staff interested in using technology to accelerate their ministry.

Summer Family Update – We had a fun filled summer with our 3 little kids! Our adventures included a 3-week trip to Ontario (with a week at a “cottage” with lots of relatives), camping, hanging out with friends at local parks, and getting to know our neighbours.

Fall 2012 Newsletter

Thursday, October 18th, 2012

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!

We just love Silas’ laugh. And Shannon sure knows how to get him laughing!
