I trust you are experiencing a rich and engaging summer. Some of you are enjoying needed holidays and a season of renewal. Others of you are neck deep in the busiest time of the year. Wherever you find yourself right now may you be allowing God’s Spirit to guide and lead you in real and tangible ways.
Here at the OCMBC offices we are diligently working on many items that often do not get addressed during the year. At the same time we have also been engaged in various ministry opportunities. I was in BC in June for the MB Leadership Summit and presently find myself speaking at a few different churches. Most recently I was in Leamington, and had a wonderful time with the Meadow Brook Church community. Kristi spoke at Camp Crossroads for Kids Camp and then returned a second week with her whole family to serve. She chose to assist with the Bike ministry while her husband Matt assisted with maintenance work. Both experiences proved to be very positive. We are now gearing up for a very full fall.
At the Leadership Summit (June 21-22) at Cedar Springs Retreat Center, Blaine Washington – attended by Karen West, Philip & Robyn Serez, Trevor Seath and myself, we began to dig deep into what a restructured national/provincial relationship could look like. Some great ideas emerged and a task force was struck to work diligently at the practical next steps. For more understanding of the MB mission & C2C Network merger check out this page.

Thanks again for your partnership in ministry. God is at work. He is the God of creation as well as the God of reconciliation. What a privilege to serve such an amazing King.
On mission with you,
