As some of you know, when I returned from Home Assignment in 2013, I started in earnest the new role I was asked to fill before we left. That role is as Melanesia/South Pacific Field Church Development Coordinator, or in a shorter version FCDC. I have very much enjoyed this new role that I am filling. I will have the privilege of working with National church leaders across 7 Island nations and 16 districts that comprise the Melanesia and South Pacific fields. I thank the Lord for the way He has already been working and for the way He will work in the days to come. As I labor to encourage, help with training and empower our church leaders as they lead, please be in prayer that God's hand would move in a mighty way. As we move through times of transition, growth and work to accomplish God's will for these two fields, please be in prayer that God would be glorified in all we do! Below is a video that was put together by AP Regional Communications team to help understand a portion of what Church Development is about. If the Lord would lead you to give financially in support of Field Church Development, below the video is some information on the Church Development "Approved Special."
Thank You very much for your prayers and partnership in this ministry!
