|Dear Pastors and Ministry Leaders,
We're pleased to announce that Dr. Michael Thiessen will transition to full-time Associate Church Planting Director on October 1. Mike has served in a part-time capacity for two years, and now will assist Tom Haines full-time with strategy, coaching, and connecting with church leadership about church planting.
You will recall from our Regional Conference in March 2018 that we were sensing God leading us to a full-time Associate role, and now this has been made possible because of generous personal donor support.
Church planting continues to grow. Churches are stepping out in faith and multiplying their ministry, and because of this we have a vision for 21 new church plants by 2020. Join me in praying for this, and for Mike, Tom, and the Church Planting team.
