North American Baptist Conference – A Sense of Vision and Unity as Leaders

A Sense of Vision and Unity as Leaders

Glory to God in the Highest

Thirty years ago, I was teaching English in China. I was teaching a Christmas carol, and a student asked me, “Teacher, what does ‘Glory’ mean?” I had not thought much about it before, having sung these songs most of my life. The dictionary definition didn’t help much, noting that it came from a word meaning, “To glow.” Certainly there was a lot of light when the angels appeared to the shepherds, but that wasn’t what the heavenly messengers were celebrating: they were declaring God’s honour. But coming from a Western culture, I had never thought about all the Bible says about honour and shame.

In most Asian and Middle Eastern cultures, shame takes on more importance than guilt, and people hunger more for honour than forgiveness – which can be seen as a loss of face! Here in Canada, shame and dignity have taken on a greater role in our social discourse than guilt and innocence. Of course, each person is different, and if we want to communicate the gospel effectively it is best to first take time to listen and understand the listener’s values and worldview, then use biblical language and pictures that best fit his or her thinking. For example, Scripture speaks to (and challenges!) worldviews based on intelligence, power, relationship, and honour. As we explore these, we can also get a bigger view of the riches of the inheritance we have in Christ.

Is there someone you would like to understand better and to whom you want to communicate the Good News of God’s salvation? Come to the workshop on Sharing Your Faith Cross-Culturally on Sunday, March 11 from 12:30 to 3:00, where we will explore these questions and more. If you would like to attend, please register by Thursday, March 8 by emailing tim.noble@omfmail.com or phone Tim at 204-881-6011.

Study the book of Nehemiah – a Sunday morning elective.

Study of Nehemiah – God Restores His People through a Building Project
(A Biblical Framework for Leadership Characteristics and Ministry Fulfillment)

Nehemiah held a special role in the history of the Jewish people… Gods chosen ones. As with other biblical characters, the book of Nehemiah is a story of how God used a seemingly ordinary individual and his decisions and actions to determine the future of the children of Abraham.
This narrative reflects amazing stories about the faithfulness and grace of God. It also teaches many useful principals to model how to lead a group of people onto God’s agenda.
In the five sessions we have together, we will examine how God speaks to us to reveal His will and discover how God used Nehemiah to restore His glory in His holy city after an extended time of exile and ruin. By rebuilding a wall, the power and glory of the God of Israel is revealed, …. the people are moved to repent…. And a spiritual revival occurs.
Understanding the story of the children of Israel in the time of Nehemiah can help inform us as to how God works in and through His people. Our WRBC journey to building a new facility for ministry has numerous parallels….
Come join Dave Barton and Bob Fast as we explore this intriguing narrative and see what lessons you can learn for yourself and for our church.

Dates: Jan 21 – Feb 25 (no session Feb 4)
Time: 9:00 am to 10:15 am
Location: lower level of WRBC
Pre-reading: Ezra & Nehemiah

Update from Andrew Friesen

Hello beloved Whyte Ridge Family,

It’s hard to believe that Courtney Joy and I have been married for almost 2 months now! God has done some amazing things in our lives since the beginning of August and we feel incredibly blessed!

  • Our wedding day (Aug 6) was filled with such unspeakable joy! It was stunning weather and filled with such precious memories with close friends and family. Our favourite part was worshiping together and truly sensing that Jesus was honoured and there with us.
  • Praise God for a fruitful time at Mobilizers forum just 3 weeks after our wedding. This is an annual conference where all of Africa Inland Mission Canada’s mobilizers gather for a week of training, prayer, and fellowship. We felt encouraged by the team and were able to learn a LOT from their experience. At the end we set some goals for the next year and everyone was of one mind.
  • We have two young ladies and a couple that are beginning applications for short term service for this upcoming year! Praise God that He is finding people with unique interests to serve Him from sports ministry, to English teaching.
  • Praise God as Courtney Joy and I have been given TWO opportunities to preach in churches in the upcoming months! Neither are churches AIM has had contact with in the past!
  • Praise God for the ways that He has ALREADY been leading Courtney Joy and me into His Word this past month. We have been challenged in our quiet times and are learning how to hear Gods voice as a couple- it is such an honour to serve the LORD and to simply be in His presence together.
  • Please keep praying with us that the LORD of the harvest would bring labourers. We are asking the Lord for four to six full time missionaries, three short termers, and we are looking to increase our inquiry base to thirty in the next year here in Ontario.
  • Praise God for Gary and Kim Lidstone who are two new additions to the Ontario mobilizing team. Pray for them as they are beginning to fundraise in the fall and hope to be fully supported by January. This is a amazing blessing as Ontario is a huge area to cover!! They will work alongside us and Susan Pinkerton (still recovering from surgery) starting in the new year.
  • Please pray, with the increase of contacts here in Ontario, we are mapping out several trips to Ottawa, Windsor, Hamilton, Guelph, and Pickering over the next two months! Pray that we would have endurance.
  • Pray for Courtney Joy and me as we have really begun to lean in to the discernment phase of where God is leading us in Africa. We have had many meaningful conversations, done some research, and are seeking the LORD to guide us forward. We know that God has asked us to walk into the darkest places to make disciples & see His church grow… but where that is we are still discovering together.

Love you all dearly and can’t wait to see you in the new year

Courtney Joy and Andrew Friesen
