Catch the Wave!

Dr. Michael & Mary Maiden // Lead Pastors Dr. Michael and Mary Maiden are the founders and lead

It’s important that we see what God’s doing now and what He’s about to do. It is the anticipation and preparation of the surfer for that ‘great wave’ that allows them to ‘catch’ it. By seeing and then positioning themselves, they can then ‘catch it’ as it rises and heads to the shore. There are WAVES OF KINGDOM MOMENTUM, FAVOR AND GLORY on the way into your world! All the ‘paddling,’ preparation, positioning and patience you’ve been doing in your life is about to pay off big time! Anyone on shore can ‘see’ the big waves as they come, but only those who’ve swam out and positioned themselves can catch and ride those glorious waves. It is an incredible experience to See, Catch and Ride the waves of the Spirit! They bring us Momentum, Acceleration, Restoration and Destiny. It’s not time to ‘give up’ and paddle back to shore, there’s a glorious wave of victory headed your way! Get ready, it’s time to ‘Catch the Wave!’

voice to this generation, Dr. Maiden’s messages are relevant, timely and life-changing. Pastor Mary is the beloved wife of Dr. Maiden for over 30 years and a vibrant voice of blessing to all the CFTN family.

Here’s what’s happening at Church for the Nations in the month of July! More info at

Kids Alive VBS with special guests Kidz Blitz! Kidz Blitz is coming to CFTN July 24-26 from 6:30-8:30pm! This VBS will be packed with exciting lessons, crazy games, and awesome worship! Get ready for an amazing time for the whole family; this will truly impact your kids lives! 4 years - 6th grade. Registration opens July 7! Are you in for this wild ride? This July in Kids Alive, we will be talking about the adventure we go on when we choose to follow Jesus! We will also talk about deepening our relationship with God. Parenting Seminar The greatest challenge of every parent is to “train up a child.” Many parents are lost in the maze of “experts” who are swayed by extreme permissiveness or rigged inflexibility. The Parenting Through the Personalities seminar will provide parents with an understanding of themselves and their children, as well as developing healthy methods of discipline and training that will equip children with good inter-personal and intra-personal relationships, good problem solving skills, as well as the ability to effectively process success and failures. Saturday, Sept. 14 Cost: $30.00 per person or $50.00 per couple. Artist of the Month We continue to have new pieces of artwork from CFTN’s own artists on display in the CFTN Bookstore. You never know what you will find, so come in and check out these magnificent works of art!

CFTN Bookstore In addition to the many things we bring in to our bookstore, we would like to let you know what goes out from the CFTN Bookstore. We send New Testament Bibles out to the homeless. We have helped a ministry in Indiana that serves battered and addicted young women by sending them materials that can help them. We also send materials out to those in prison. If you have a loved one or know someone who could use an encouraging word, we can even help you in mailing. We would like to send a special “Thank you” to all who have come into the bookstore and sown that extra bit which has helped to bless so many. Business Mountain Classes CFTN is dedicated to advancing the kingdom of God by equipping leaders and businesspeople to fulfill their God-given purpose in life on the belief that “Thus says the Lord, fundamental following God’s ways your Redeemer, The is the key to success in Holy One of Israel: every area of life and ‘I am the Lord your business.

God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you by the way you should go.’”

Our purpose is to EDUCATE, ELEVATE, and ENCOURAGE believers —Isaiah 48:17 who have been called to take the Mountain of Business. Join us for our Phase One curriculum which will be taught the second Sunday of each month starting on July 14 and continuing thru December 8 at 9am in The Wherehouse. (continued on page 10)
