A Day With Carey Nieuwhof – Friday – March 20th – Moncton – Amazing opportunity

Pastors – watch your email this week for full details. This is a ”make tracks not excuses” event.

NOTE: Elsie Kent’s funeral will take place today – Monday – at 3 PM at River Valley Wesleyan. There will be visitation from 1-3 and a reception following the service. 

Kentville New Hope presented $2200 to the Aldershot Elementary School to assist in the costs related to their breakfast program.  Another great example of community connection.

Nelson Koonce (Blacks Harbour) and Tim Long (Digby) whose wives are sisters recently lost their father-in-law Mr Clifford Bunker. His funeral was in Tiddville, NS.

Charles Bain’s mother Ruth, a life-long Wesleyan, recently passed away and the funeral was in Wood’s Harbour, NS. Our sympathy is extended to these families in their loss. 

Our own Jamin Melanson, Pastor at Fort Fairfield, has published his first book entitled Ninjateers: Rise of a New Enemy, a science fiction novel with Christian principles highlighted throughout. To order a copy, click on the following link:

I was in Presque Isle this weekend to speak in their two services, conduct Pastor Bud’s extended call review with the LBA, share dinner on Saturday evening with the staff pastors and lunch yesterday with Bud and Irene. The extended call was unanimously renewed and accepted.  Attendance at the two services – Saturday evening and Sunday morning was 618.

A camp caretakers works never done! This week, the small cottage on our newly acquired Heartland property was moved on one of the beautiful winter days.

Peter was at New Hope in Kentville on Saturday and Sunday. His primary focus was to assist them in the further development of the churches’ mission program and thrust. While there, he picked up a great quote from Pastor Scott’s message yesterday, “Anger is inescapable. The question is not if you will experience it but how you will express it.”

Maple Ridge unveiled their vision for 2015 this morning – great stuff. Go Nick and Mike!

The Gathering will take place in Orlando, Florida this week. Some 2000 ministers and spouses are registered with more than 120 from our own district – excellent response.  The district was so pleased to financially support ministers and spouses who are appointed to local church ministry. I trust we will have a memory-making, Kingdom impacting experience together.

NOTE: Atlantic and Central Canada reception following the Tuesday night rally in Salon 8.

Our annual Snowbirds Breakfast is also scheduled for this week – Saturday at 9 AM at the Country Kitchen Restaurant in Brooksville. Stephanie Gilmer from World Hope Canada will be our special guest.

The third banner event of the week will be The International Conference of The Wesleyan Church which will bring together delegates from literally dozens of countries representing the global ministries of the Wesleyan Church. One of the significant items before that body will be a resolution concerning the formation of a Canadian Established National Conference of the church.  I am pleased to serve as a delegate to these proceedings.

John denHollander Sr passed away last week. John and his family were very committed to and involved in the early church planting days with us at Dartmouth Hillside. John later enter the ministry and served our churches at Lower Brighton and Digby. Since I was in Florida, Denn Guptill, DBA member from NS, graciously consented to represent the district at the funeral.

On a personal note – last week, we had a totally great vacation with the family at Disney World. A memory maker to be sure.

Our district received an incredible gift over this Christmas season. The documents pictured above arrived at our office on Dec 23rd with the red ribbon attached. These are deeds from Mrs. Jean Irving to the Atlantic District and cover the Heartland house at Beulah and the 25+ acres that are a part of her expanded property there. What an amazing and highly valued gift.

I have been honoured to meet with Mr. and Mrs. Irving several times over the past few months with regards to this matter. I am not in anyway seeking to suggest that I opened the conversation concerning this gift – I was privileged to respond to Mrs. Irving’s outstanding generosity as she indicated her intent to gift these properties to our district. An amazing gift!

More Christmas season ministry highlights……

  • Bangor River City held a Polar Express special kid-focused event with 139 present.
  • Hammonds Plains Cornerstone had a net of 722 present at their five Christmas Eve services after repeat attenders were removed from the raw count. Ten years ago – 2004 – they had 68 present on Christmas Eve – amazing – onward and upward!
  • Moncton’s Hub City Christmas held three full-house performances that saw 426 people indicate that they had invited Christ into their hearts – talk about the real reason for the season. PTL!
  • Nackawic had a baby dedication in their Christmas Eve service. No better day to dedicate a baby than while observing the birth of the Christ child!
  • Bristol Trinity served 142 at a community breakfast on Christmas Eve and had 182 present for the service that evening.
  • Fredericton Corbett had a raw total of 1000+ at their three Christmas Choir Extravaganza plus their Christmas Eve services – more than 700 when repeat attenders are removed from the raw count.  
  • Truro Central Nova delivered cookies and a “thank you” card to 30 places where people had to work on Christmas Eve and had 158 present at the service that evening.
  • Kentville New Hope had nearly 400 present for their Christmas Eve services – a new record.
  • Maple Ridge had 176 present for their CE service.
  • Halifax Deep Water had a standing room only crowd present for a candlelight service at their  North Street campus – a new tradition in the making.
  • Yarmouth had a raw total of 1875 attend their presentations of the Living Christmas Tree and their CE services – one of which was held in West Pubnico. Thirty five – 35 – people responded to “I’m giving Christ my room” – PTL!

Excellent stuff. Creative ministries. Community connections. Most of this data was retrieved from Twitter. Would love to report as widely as possible from across the tribe. Is your church on Twitter and active with praise notes and info? Love to hear from you.

Our district office will reopen on Monday morning January 5th.  Voice mail will be monitored every day and regular mail will be checked regularly during those days. Peter and I will be available by cell as needed as well – Peter at 506-232-7453 and yours truly at 506-962-2263.

Robin White received his visa clearance to return to Japan recently.  He left this past week and has arrived safely for another term as a Global Partners missionary there. Thanks to so many of you personally and to our churches for supporting Robin in his work there.

Onward and upward.

Tim Long has accepted a full time staff position at Digby effective in January. Lead Pastor Andrew Maves says, “We are jacked about this. Very exciting times in Digby.”

A reminder of last weeks’ announcement that our annual Atlantic Snow Birds Breakfast will be held on Saturday, Jan 17, 2015. We will meet, as we did last year, at the Country Kitchen in Brooksville at 9 AM. The breakfast is a gift from the Atlantic District and we will receive an offering for the vital ministry of World Hope Canada (WHC). Stephanie Gilmer, Executive Director of WHC will be our special guest.

Last week a prayer request was sent to all pastors relative to a special health challenge facing Bev Wilson, wife of Kevin Wilson, Lead Pastor of Halifax Metro. I am pleased to report that the results of the exploratory surgery of last Thursday were much more positive than first feared.  Kevin and Bev express their deep appreciation for prayers offered on their behalf. 

Big day at KV yesterday – 1006 in the seats and $101,000 in the plates. PTL! Onward and upward.

The Presidential Search Committee for Kingswood University, on which I am pleased to serve, has been diligently at work and will meet again this week. The process is moving along very well and initial interviews will soon take place. Continue to be in prayer for this vital appointment.

 A Christmas dinner that for the first time combined our Beulah and Caton’s staff along with our district office personnel was held at Up to Par on Friday evening. It was a very enjoyable evening of good food and warm fellowship. The youngest person there was Zachary Warren Hayes, the recently arrived son of Philip and Emma Hayes. If you know Zachary’s grandfather Peter, you will notice that he has granddad’s hair style already:).

Jasper Rideout will conclude his pastoral service at North Head at the end of this month. Thanks for remembering both Jasper and the church in prayer as God brings it to mind as we work through the pending transition in leadership. I met with their LBA last Sunday afternoon.

Gloria and I had opportunity to spend a day at our cottage on Saturday. It was a beautiful day as the river was mirror-like and the reflection impressive. The Master’s handiwork to be sure.

I am pleased to announce the our annual Atlantic Snow Birds Breakfast will be held on Saturday, Jan 17, 2015. We will meet, as we did last year, at the Country Kitchen in Brooksville at 9 AM. The breakfast is a gift from the Atlantic District and we will receive an offering for the vital ministry of World Hope Canada.

These breakfasts have proven over time to be a very positive event. Spread the word. Gloria and I are looking forward to seeing you and updating you on the work of our district. In the meantime, Merry Christmas!

Hammonds Plains Cornerstone had their best attendance month ever last month with an average of 314 and Truro Central Nova had their best attendance month in over 8 years with an average of 104 – Onward and upward!

The Miramichi LBA recently granted a 4 week mini-sabbatical to Pastor Gary Churchill. Congrats to Gary and to the LBA for their kind expression of support for their pastor.

Your DBA held its annual Christmas meeting last week in Fredericton. We met on Thursday and Friday.  On Thursday evening, together with our spouses, we attended a concert by Measha Brueggergosman at the Playhouse. We have an excellent, high-quality board and it is an honour to work in Kingdom ministry with them. We also had special guests Stuart Marples and A J Plaizier with us to interface with the board on UTR (Upon this Rock) – our church planting thrust in Newfoundland – and Maximizing Impact – our church revitalization ministry.  

Brazil Lake held their Road to Bethlehem production last weekend. The two presentations saw 255 people walk the “road”. Exceptional turn out in their context – well done.

Last Sunday evening the Nackawic/Millville churches held a 5th Sunday Singspiration at Maple Ridge. Ten area churches of various denominations participated and 189 people were present. A special offering was received to help Pastor Nick Graham with his medical expenses and nearly $2000 was raised. To quote Ryan Farrell “fantastic evening.”

This past week, Anton and Louise Topilnyckyj (Metro Wesleyan) attended an international gathering of military Christian fellowships held in Cape Town South Africa with 1000 other delegates representing 99 countries. The conference used prayer, praise and instruction over 70 hours to inspire and equip leaders to return home and reach their military communities. Photo is of a gift presentation of a cross made from  New Brunswick maple to the association’s president, Sri Lankan General Srial and Mrs Dilhani Weerasoorlya. Anton is the prayer co-ordinator of the Canadian military fellowship and would be pleased to share any ideas for reaching the military community.

World Hope Canada (WHC)  has recently sent a Christmas video to all of the Canadian churches in both districts. WHC is doing excellent overseas ministry and our support will be deeply appreciated and empowering.

Halifax Deep Water has launched a Scholar Series. The first instalment featured Greg Monette, a Ph. D. candidate at the University of Bristol. He serves as the Canadian Marketing Representative for Logos Bible Software and is the author of The Wrong Jesus.  He specializes in New Testament history and the origins of Christianity.

Saturday, Jan 17, 2015 – 9:00 am,  Country Kitchen in Brooksville, FL

Our Maximizing Impact team which was at Bangor River City last weekend, was at Truro Central Nova this weekend. Excellent and stretching time with Pastor Ken Banks, the LBA, the Friday evening focus group and the Saturday AM “The Local Church is the Hope of the World” sessions.  Being in churches with the team for this 3 day event is energizing and sharpens focus on the Great Commission for all of us. 

One of the community impact ministries at Truro is Baby ’n Me, a monthly open house for moms to come and receive as gifts a wide range of baby “stuff”. Baby ’n Me was on this past Saturday while we were there. It was heart-warming to see this program in action and I personally had opportunity to briefly interface with a couple and their baby daughter. This is an idea worthy of replication in other churches. Pastor Ken would be pleased to interface if other pastors  have interest.

Your District Board of Administration (DBA) will be meeting this week in Fredericton. We will hear special reports from Stuart Marples concerning Upon This Rock (UTR), our Newfoundland church planting thrust and from A J Plaizier, a host pastor and now a team member for Maximizing Impact. 

Our church in Presque Isle hosted a youth rally last weekend under the leadership of their Youth Pastor Dave Sylvain. There were 18 youth groups represented with a total registration including youth and adult sponsors of nearly 250. Ecclesia and Jason Parker from Kingswood provided ministry to this multi-denominational group that saw many rededications and at least 3 confirmed salvations take place. PTL and thanks to Dave for this out-of-the-box wide tent event – onward and upward!

Our Sussex church is offering a one night Kings County Christmas event and it is sold out! Congrats to Pastor Don and crew. 

Our reconfigured camp board met last week in Moncton. The board now has two distinct sessions – a Catons Island Session and a Beulah Camp Session – each with its’ own members. Peter and I are the only crossovers on both boards. Peter, who Chairs both of the Sessions, has done excellent work in this restructure that is already serving to sharpen the point of our camping ministry focus. The two Sessions met together for dinner as you see above to launch this new step forward.

While in Truro for our MI weekend, the team went to the Glengarry Hotel on Friday evening for supper.  I sent a picture of the dessert table above to my wife Gloria. She promptly sent me a reply, ”Where r u? Heaven?”

Our Maximizing Impact Team – Peter Moore, L D Buckingham, A J Plaizier and yours truly – was at Bangor River City over the weekend. Excellent interchange with the pastors, the LBA and a very interactive focus group. We also were challenged by inspiring seminars with LDB and the Sunday service. Looking with optimism to the future at River City.  The team will be at Truro this coming weekend. Onward and upward!

While in Bangor I also had opportunity to share lunch with AJ and Kelly Thomas. The relaunch at Pathway is in it’s early stages and all signs are encouraging.

This past week I was involved in the General Board meeting held for the first time at 12Stone Church in Atlanta. Specifically, the board meetings were held in the John C Maxwell Leadership Centre and the board attended church on Sunday at 12Stone’s main campus.

Following the GB meeting, I chaired the first meeting of the recently-appointed Membership Working Group which also met at the Maxwell Centre. We are charged with a review of and recommendations going forward for our membership purpose, structure and function. Amazing group of leaders in the group with a deep commitment to Christ and the Church. Any recommendations of the group would go to the GB and, as approved or amended, on to the 2016 General Conference. More word later.

The Presidential Search Committee at Kingswood University has been diligently at work and will be interacting again this week. Please be in prayer for the Master’s will guiding forward in this critical process. 

Fredericton Crosspoint is the regional collection point for Operation Christmas Child boxes. They expect to see as many as 4000 boxes arrive there this weekend. Thanks to CP for being a pivot point in this popular and effective ministry to the “least” among us. Did your family fill a Christmas Child box this year? 

**NOTE: Crosspoint is hosting a Financial Freedom seminar with Pete Benson tomorrow (Tuesday) evening at 6:30 PM. This practical teaching is open to everyone and you are more than welcome to attend. That’s tomorrow – don’t miss it. 

Congrats to Matt and Laura Palmer, staff pastor at Fredericton Journey, on the arrival of their 4th child, Eliza Hope Palmer, born Sunday October 12th, weighing in at 7lbs 4oz. She was welcomed by her siblings Malachi, Charlotte and Jack.
