You may have noticed on our home page that we are excited about the “near frontiers” for several reasons. In recent weeks we have enjoyed two of those reasons, namely:
WE BELIEVE that immigrant churches are a divine provision for reaching America with the love of Jesus Christ. SO LET’S PARTNER IN SHARING THE GOSPEL.
WE BELIEVE that the power of Christ is displayed when diverse cultures dwell together in unity. SO LET’S LEARN TO EMBRACE ONE ANOTHER IN RECONCILING LOVE.
Near Frontiers recently convened a leadership seminar for men and women who are seeking to plant and pastor churches in the Seattle, Tacoma area. These are busy folks, often working full time jobs. Yet they sacrificed to come for all or part of the seminar. I invited one of my mentors, Dr. Ron Pritz, to come share on the “Stages in the Life Cycle of a Leader.” Head over to our Near Frontiers page on Facebook for brief slide show of our seminar.
Shortly after the seminar, we received an invitation to fellowship with one of the attendees, Pastor Sam Gasela. Only weeks ago they have started sunday afternoon services in their home; it is beautifully named the Bread of Life International Fellowship.
