International Pastors/Leadership Summit Our first ever International Pastors/Leadership Summit was held on July 19-20 at the Chinese Pentecostal Church in Vancouver.

“PURE” Women's Conference 2013 We want to personally invite you to join us in a life-giving weekend for women! Our theme PURE, is to encourage you and refresh you in Christ and remind you that you are His Bride! You will be inspired by personal testimonies, the power of God's Word and the encouragement of the Holy Spirit to prepare yourself to live a life for your Bridegroom. This weekend will include guest speaker Caroline Reimer, worship leaders (Amy TeBulte and Phil Spoelstra), breakout speakers, and many treats and gifts from our various sponsors! (Special breakout for Prince George with Jarod Monds: How to protect your marriage from a husband’s perspective.) Our partners (Blessings Bookstores, Gospel for Asia, and others) will be at both locations to add to this special weekend. Our intent is to make you feel like a Bride! We want to dedicate this time to remind and refresh ourselves spiritually as the bride of Christ with beauty, blessings, laughter, and community. Girls ages 12 and up are also invited. Investing in the next generation continues to be a priority for W2W. We will have special speakers at each location who will inspire and challenge our girls from a young age to plan and live out a life of PURITY for Christ! Amy TeBulte and will join us in Prince George, and Charmaine Findley will be at our Surrey event. Download the poster/postcards for your groups and friends, or church website at: www.w2wonline.ca/conference-downloads Please encourage your women to come and be refreshed. In the busyness of our lives and schedules, it is easy to pourout and not take the time to fill-up. Women give out so much on a regular basis to others and God is asking us to give Him time to refresh, refill and rejuvenate us, so we can continue to be a blessing to those around us. Take this time to invest in your relationship with your Bridegroom, your first love! Looking forward to worshipping and coming together!

The Result of “One Great Idea” Ken Russell, District Superintendent Levi Strauss came to America in 1847. In 1853 he opened a wholesale business in San Francisco and began making sturdy work pants for miners. In 1872 a key event occurred. A Nevada tailor wrote to him suggesting he make some work pants “with rivets to reinforce the seams”. Levi Strauss knew a good idea when he heard one. He hired the tailor Jacob Davis, and in 1873 the company began producing riveted blue denim jeans and jackets. As of the year 2003, Levi Strauss & Co. is the world’s largest clothing manufacturer. Their product is so popular that the brand name Levi’s is often used to refer to any pair of blue jeans; like Coke is sometimes used to refer to any soft drink, Kleenex to any tissue, and Band-Aid to any bandage. Levi Strauss was willing to take advice from a Nevada tailor, and one great idea produced huge success. Stale Christianity and spiritual boredom has hindered the mission of many churches across Canada. Repetitious discipleship, routine worship, and cyclical programs have demotivated believers from missional experimentation and innovation. Most of us don't attend “Mega Churches” who have a budget and staff for weekly productions, so we must accept the fact that missional creativity and innovation is possible for everyone, not only the affluent. Let’s explore five myths about missional creativity and innovation: Myth #1. Creativity is only used during a worship service. Wrong! Creativity and artistic expression during corporate worship is important, but they aren’t mutually exclusive from the missional priorities of a church. Fresh expressions of human imagination must be deployed in every part of church life and ministry. Creativity is the ability to see things from a different perspective and show that vantage point to other people (especially non-believers). Jesus, in His parables, showed true creativity. He saw the Kingdom of Heaven from several different perspectives and helped illustrate that to various people. A good story or visual illustration is the perfect manifestation of creativity.

Joel & Avin Reimer www.joelandavinreimer.blogspot.ca Joel & Avin work in Cambodia and are back in BC for a couple months awaiting the birth of their baby in September!

Myth #2. Creativity is expensive. Wrong! While creative churches like Willow Creek and Lakewood Church have pretty big budgets for media, technology, and production; there are many churches that do amazing things with little to no money. Missional creativity and innovation is about “Ideas” not “Money”. Creativity isn’t about fancy gadgets and technology. It isn’t even about facilities or physical resources. It’s about using fresh ideas to present the gospel, so that ordinary people would be introduced to Christ. It’s about pushing through the resistance and limitations of your current routines so that people would hear, see, feel, touch, and smell the beautiful fragrance of Jesus Christ our Savior. Myth #3. Creativity is time-consuming. Wrong! Creativity is not time consuming, but it does require some extra thought and the use of your imagination. Anything that’s worth doing requires an investment of time, energy and ingenuity. My father drilled this saying into my head, “Kenneth, if you fail to plan, you plan to fail”. Creativity is not time-consuming, but it does require good planning and diligent implementation. Myth #4. We don't have any “creative” people in our congregation. Wrong! You would be surprised how many creative and innovative people attend your church, right now. Often, these innovators remain silent in church because they don’t want to assert themselves or push their creative ideas. But if you begin deploying creative ideas in your church, they will come out of the shadows. These creative volunteers will show up early and stay late to help make events at your church come alive with originality, vision, passion and artistry. Myth #5. Only young people are creative and innovative. Wrong! Creativity is not limited by age or generational boundaries. While it may be true that some of us “older people” are more prone to developing patterns and routines in life, older people can be very imaginative, enterprising and resourceful. As someone once said, “There’s nothing ‘new’ under the sun; ‘new ideas’ are merely rebranded and repackaged concepts of the past”. Missional creativity requires the ability to re-invent and re-try evangelistic concepts of the past.

Youth Alpha Film Series September 1st is the launch of the Youth Film Series. NGM is calling all of our District youth ministries and local churches to consider coming on board with this amazing opportunity for the Gospel. We want to reach the next generation with the good news about who Jesus is, and what He has done. Alpha’s Youth Film Series is 12 episodes designed to engage high school students in some of life’s biggest questions. It was filmed all over the world in cities like London, New York, Vancouver, and Jerusalem. It’s Alpha for a new generation. More than 20 million people around the world have experienced Alpha. It is one of the best tools available for people to explore and share their faith. The film series is designed to take the weight off your shoulders and allow you to create the atmosphere, invite friends, and be fully present during each session. Every episode has breaks for discussion, and shows a variety of youth and young adults from around the world speaking their minds about faith and God. This will set the stage for honest and open dialogue. By registering your course, you will have free access to ALL of our materials for planning, training, promoting and running Alpha with your group. If you have any questions about the Youth Alpha Film Series, please let our NGM office know and we will be more that happy to get you set up with this amazing FREE resource.

SPARK 2013 SPARK is an amazing conference for preteens that is focused on reaching grades 5-8 (ages 9-13). This is NGM’s tenth anniversary of producing SPARK and want to see you and your group there! We have been blown away by both the fun and spiritual impact these weekends bring as kids come and experience God and develop friendships. It has definitely been an event where students grow deeper in Christ, as well as an event they love to invite their friends to. Our theme for 2013 is, GO. It’s the Father’s heart to equip and send His children out in the power of the Holy Spirit, and in His love and grace. Our desire is to raise up young world changers and Historymakers; preteens who dare to live their faith for God and answer His calling to “GO and make disciples” (Matt 28:19). Join us on November 22-23 at Abbotsford Pentecostal Assembly for an exciting and impactful weekend. With speakers Chris Luff, Ben Woodman, Connie Jakab and Evan Allnutt, your students will be inspired and challenged, while connecting with friends from across BC. For more information, accommodations and to register, visit www.sparklive.ca. We hope that you are able to come and bring a group of preteens with you. Dream with us for preteens and believe that God can ignite amazing things in their hearts, NOW!

home and so I could see why they were concerned. “Well,” I began, “we have had this problem over the past two years and now it is worse.” They thought I was serious. I said, “All the clothes that we have hung in the closet off the master bedroom in the last two years are shrinking.” They were relieved that I was only joking, but then they became concerned that I would remain as one of their customers.

Physical Health - What’s a Boomer To Do? Jim Caruso, District Clergy Care Coach “May God Himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together spirit, soul, and body - and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ.” 1Thess. 5:23 Yes, we the Baby Boomers are taking centre stage in North America. We are the generation that populated the post World War II era, actually we were the first new population of the postwar era and then we began to populate it. We are retiring earlier than any other generation before us and with far more resources than any other generation. You might remember the ad on TV from the investment company that guaranteed a healthy income in our retirement years. Freedom 55 was the benchmark, but it is interesting that for many Boomers, it is actually Freedom 50 and for others Freedom in the late 40’s. So what do we do with this new found freedom? Well, we want to travel, eat, golf, eat, visit family, eat and build our dream home and eat. We are kind of like adolescent adults who want to do their own thing, and now we have the money and freedom to accomplish that. The problem with this new found freedom and indulgence is that our waistline is also expanding, as is the lineup at the doctor’s office and lab for our blood work. We know that a well-rested, exercised and fed body completes a balanced lifestyle and God is interested in your body continuing to be healthy as we head into these years of freedom. The body is more than the vehicle that transports the spirit and the soul; it demands machine-like maintenance. Scripture reminds us that, “The eye is the lamp of the body. If then your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light.” (Matt. 6:22). My wife and I are enjoying this dream although we are not retired. A few years ago we bought a house, a nice house, a house we could have used raising our kids, but at that time it was a house that we could not afford when we were raising our kids. I drove in to our modular home park the one day, (actually it is not a park, but a modular home estate), you see we owned a modular home, not a trailer; the difference is that they took the hitch and the taillights off after they delivered it. In actuality, it is an excellent home built to the same standard of any house built in any subdivision in our community. But we had a problem in our house. We contacted the sales people and told them that we had a problem with our closet off the master bedroom. I watched as their face dropped and their smiles disappeared, We never had a complaint about our

It is obvious the reason for the shrinking clothes was not the dark closet off the master bedroom, but the brightly lit kitchen housing the fridge and stove. This is another challenge that the Baby Boomer faces, not only are there a large numbers of us, but many are large in numbers. Obesity, diabetes and heart problems are overloading, (maybe not the best choice of words), but just the same, it is a large problem for our health care system. I, myself look forward to getting down to my perfect weight of 200 pounds; it worked well for me in Grade 2 and I have been trying to diet and exercise to connect with that weight again ever since. My wife put me on a diet a while ago. She said that I will lose 10 pounds a month; she figures that in two and a half years I’ll be completely gone. The idea of living for a long time is possible for the Baby Boomer. Health science has created all the spare parts that we need when our original parts wear out. Teeth, hips, knees, kidneys, lungs and hearts can all be replaced quite easily today. Vitamins, medications and exercise will also help us live longer. Sharon Promislo, President of Enhanced Learning & Integration Inc., Vancouver, suggests that, “If we want to help our body attain and maintain a state of emotional, physical, and mental wellbeing, it makes sense for us to do all of the following: moderate the stressors in our lives, eat right, sleep right, manage our time, exercise, and do brain/body balancers designed to give our system a chance to naturally manufacture the appropriate bio-chemicals necessary for a balanced state.” In one of the churches we pastored over the years, we had an elderly woman in our congregation. She would be turning 99 the following Sunday, but had fallen and was in the hospital the day before her birthday. She said, “Everyone wants me to live until I am 100 years old, but it is so boring.” The dream for many Boomers is to live forever. However life does not last forever on Earth, and while we are here, it need not be boring. Life does go on forever in Heaven, and in Scripture there is no indication that it is in the least bit boring. So get out and enjoy your Boomer life while you prepare yourself for the coming dinner with Jesus and the saints, the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. (PS: There are no dark closets in heaven with shrinking clothes.)

Assistant Superintendent, Dave Solmes @solmes_ SHOUT OUT! Today I want to give a Shout Out to our District church planters and church multipliers. Here is the news: Across our District of British Columbia and Yukon we see many families who are carving out new ground for the Kingdom of God. In the last few years church leaders have relocated to begin a cooperative journey of multiplication. They have moved to new neighborhoods, across the country, and some have moved across the oceans gripped with a great desire to see people from British Columbia, Yukon and the world evangelized and discipled. I give a shout out to them for their continued faithfulness and desire to be used by God. They have chosen a hard path, not because there is not something else they can do, but because they feel compelled by the Great Commission. Over the last 100 years, someone’s imagination was stirred and steps of faith taken to plant the 190 or so existing churches we have within our district. We benefit from their vision and determination. I pray that we would acknowledge and bless those same types of leaders who are in our ministerial ranks today. Perhaps this month you could call one of our planters, take up a home missions love offering for their kids going back to school, partner by sending some workers and musicians, consider a sponsorship for the next 12 months from home missions budget, and finally, simply pray that God would provide all they need to thrive. 2014 Upcoming Events:  District Day of Prayer for Church Multiplication: Sunday, March 23, 2014  Church Multipliers Retreat: May 30-31, 2014
