A Quick Chat About Christmas

We were just made aware that EFCC pastor, Chad Graham was part of a brief conversation about the real reason for the season hosted by CBC radio this morning.

Nice work, Chad! We just never know whose curiosity might be piqued by hearing something like that.

Update from the Philippines

This short excerpt comes from Melvin, our Asia Area Director.

I had the pleasure of spending several days with Jason and Andrea and their five boys, and can testify that there is rarely a dull moment. Jason’s primary ministry is Middle School Chaplain and Bible Teacher at Faith Academy.

His passion for ministry is contagious and I often think of his enthusiastic statement:

“I can’t believe that I get to do this for a living!”

Since the students of Faith Academy are primarily MKs we might assume that evangelistic opportunities are limited. That’s not the case, as already this year several of Jason’s students have professed Christ as their Saviour for the first time!

Many activities fill their days: language learning, home-schooling, building friendships with locals and other expats as well as the day-to-day challenges faced by living in the Philippines. Pray for this family as they adjust to a new life and ministry.

Some Potential Resolutions for the New Year?

The blog post below examines a top-ten list of signs of organisational health. It was written as a reflection of Patrick Lencioni’s latest book, The Advantage: Why Organizational Health Trumps Everything Else in Business.

That book has become very important to us here at Home Office, and so this blog post might be useful to help guide new year’s resolutions for your church:
