Well, as I write this on the Monday following our 2017 WMF Convocation, I am trying to process all the amazing things that I saw happen at this event. Oh my, what a spectacular time we had in the presence of God!
For those of you who were unable to attend, I am going to apologize in advance, because I know my description of what I felt and experienced last week will fall far short of all that God brought to pass. For those who were there, I trust you will be able to bear witness that God was truly moving in our midst!
Since this was the first convocation I faced as the Executive Director, I confess I approached it with a certain amount of apprehension. But we have great people, and God helped us accomplish much for the Kingdom.
The administrative boards all came together with tangible joy and unity. New members on the Executive Board (Fiifi Pentsel and Jim McCool) and the COC (Roosevelt Henry, Kendall Hetrick, Paul Freeman and James Barber) were introduced and began to pitch in immediately, with great effect. The Advisory Board and the Mission Board also made great progress toward the amazing future God has in store for WMF. You will hear details of these things in the days ahead.
The times of worship were off the chain (Thank you Paul Freeman and worship team)!
The speakers encouraged and challenged us to become mature and qualified, to step into the River, to finish strong, and to go beyond that which is our current experience in God.
The times of ministry around the altar were precious. New Members licensed and ordained, seasoned ministers encouraged and touched by the mighty hand of our loving heavenly Father. It never gets old seeing God touch his precious saints.
Simply put, what a privilege it has been to come into the presence of God once more. Thank you, Lord!
PS. I am so excited about our next events I can hardly stand it! Please plan to join us for any/all these you can attend.
