FCF-Canada – Annual General Meeting & Conference, April 2018 drew fifty members from across the country to a central point in the province of Ontario.
The theme this year: “Purpose – Passion – People” based on Colossians 3:23, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as though you were working for the Lord and not for people.”
The conference was conducted in both official languages: French and English, and we were fortunate to have simultaneous translation for those who were not bilingual.
Our morning devotions, workshops, and messages encouraged and challenged us to stay connected to God. Testimonies from various members spoke of how God opens doors, provides workers, and equips us for his service.
Pastor Stettler stressed the importance for Christians to be passionate for God. Our passion affects greatly our capacity to remain for a long time in ministry, to overcome challenges of all kinds, to grow in our love for God. He said gratefulness is one important key to remain passionate for God. When we feel discouraged, we need to take time to remember the gifts of God in our life. As we do, the joy of the Lord will strengthen us.
And everyone would agree that one of the great things about the conference is the fellowship – meeting with brothers and sisters from other provinces who have a common purpose and passion: to share the gospel with those who are lost, and hearing their stories of how they accomplish this.
