Passing the Baton

Ottawa, ON

On Sunday, July 14th I had the privilege of preaching at our home church, Dominion Outreach Centre.  It also marked an event that will significantly impact our ministry in the Canadian and Russian Arctic.

Our Associate Evangelist, Luke Price, has been sharing ministry with me as we travel across Canada, calling believers to Stand On Guard for righteousness in the nation.  He has also had a tremendous impact on the lives of many Canadian Inuit youth as he shares the account of his dramatic encounter with God in the midst of a suicide attempt, and speaks deliverance into their lives. 

Luke’s passion for the people of the north led us to yesterday’s announcement of his appointment as the Director of Missions for BPEA.  On Sunday Gwen and I, along with our Pastors, Shawn and Michelle Gabie, had the privilege of officially passing the baton of Missions leadership to Luke.  He will now oversee all aspects of our mission outreaches, including the development of an outreach training program for young leaders in the Arctic.  I will continue to participate in Arctic ministry along with Luke as he coordinates and leads each outreach. 

Throughout the spring and summer we have been calling on partners and fellow believers to help us raise the funds to build a new facility in Repulse Bay that will not only provide a larger church for the local believers, but will also give us a place to gather selected young leaders from across the Arctic whom we can train and empower to impact the youth in their own communities.  In addition to the funds that local Christians have already raised for the exterior of the building, we are believing for $100,000 to purchase and ship all the materials needed to complete the interior. 

The last barge to go into Repulse Bay this year is scheduled for September, so we recognize that this will take a major miracle.  But we serve a miracle-working God who is able to do “exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think.”  As Luke dedicates himself to the north and to this vital project, I expect BIG things from God!
