After several consultations with CityReach and Stephanie/Mario we’ve decided to switch church plant locations. The Digby plant will now be relocated to Port Hawkesbury (Sept 2016).
There are a few reasons for this change:
1. We have learned that there is another church plant starting in Digby in the spring. Ours was to launch in September. There is also a thriving Wesleyan church in the area. We believe that relocating is the most Kingdom-minded decision we can make.
2. Port Hawkesbury is one of our approved target destinations earlier in our strategic planning.
3. With the closing of the Port Hawkesbury church we now have a space for a "Hope Home." Hope Homes are recovery homes that are a part of CityReach’s usual planting plan). The Port Hawkesbury building is still well-kept and useful.
4. We have identified an excellent location for the new church - in the Civic Building (community centre). It is new, modern, and in a highly-visible location. It is inexpensive.
5. There are few churches in Port Hawkesbury, and there is no thriving church in the area.
6. Brian Bolt, director of CityReach, has visited Port Hawkesbury and believes that Port Hawkesbury has a higher chance of success.
Would you pray with us for Stephanie and Mario as they relocate to Port Hawkesbury and begin a new work there? We are excited about what is about to happen in that town! ... See MoreSee Less
Please pray for my 2 year old grandson that was diagnosed with leukemia. He is at the BC Children's Hospital with his mother (my daughter Michelle) and will be there for 6 to 8 months for treatment. Shawn, her husband, is associate pastor at the Bethel Pentecostal Church in Dawson Creek, B. C. I would appreciate the District family to pray for them.
