Message from Pastor Kevin

Dear Fellow Pastors,

It is a joy and privilege to be partners in the Gospel with you in Western Canada. The ministry is certainly a source of blessing for us, but it can also bring discouragement at times. The apostle Paul looked forward to being refreshed by individual brothers (2 Tim 1:16) and local churches (Rom 15:32). He also commended local churches for refreshing the spirit of the Lord’s ministers (2 Cor 7:13). I am eagerly anticipating our time of spiritual refreshment at the annual pastors’ conference. The folks at Meadowlands are looking forward to encouraging you and your family. I am especially thrilled to have the Taylors as our guest speakers. I know you will be blessed by their ministry. In addition to our main sessions, Dean will be speaking directly to the pastors, and Faith will be speaking to the wives. We will also have childcare and activities for your children. Mark your calendars now, and prepare to be refreshed!
