Chronicles 4: 19
Jesus asks all of us a question today: What have you made for me?
Solomon made a lot for God, what have we made?
What have I made for God when I become a bishop since September 9, 2009? I was asked by Jesus to make a summary here:
1. Prayer and Ministry to the Word (Acts 6:4)
a. Two blogs and two podcasts: more than 100,000 visits and people from 42 countries using these as their daily devotion.
b. Initiated the 40 days of fasting and prayers for Anglican Church of Rwanda and theAMs.
2. Shepherd of the shepherds (John 21: 15-19)
a. Four years plan for ACiC/AI - to raise up first Disciplers, then Evangelists, then Mentors, then Church Planters. Yearly Leadership Breakthrough Conference in May and National Conference and Clergy Retreat in September or October. Three key note speakers in National Conference 2011 (September 15 3p.m. to September 17 10p.m.) are Archbishop Yong Ping Chung, Bishop Todd Hunter and Dr. Terry Walling.
b. Coaching: Dr. Terry Walling as coach for our NLT team and speaker in the yearly Leadership Breakthrough Conference and National Conference.
c. Ordination Retreat
d. Visitation and Confirmation to all ACiC/AI churches
e. Monthly coaching sessions for young clergy, youth pastors and seminarians of ACiC/AI.
f. Clergy coaching and training financial support.
g. Leadership Team coaching for three churches: Toronto Emmanuel Church, Christ the Redeemer, Pender Harbour and Richmond Emmanuel.
3. Pioneering Ministry (Matthew 10: 1-16)
a. Restaurant workers church plant: started three weeks ago every Wednesday 3:30p.m. to 5p.m. a 15 sessions Alpha program then baptism and church service with small groups in a Chinese restaurant in Richmond, B.C., Canada.
b. Family for All Nations (FANS): a new church plant led by Pastor Marcus Ho in Richmond and other suitable places.
Praise the Lord for your prayers and financial support that I can do these ministries for the Lord as a bishop! I am also the Rector of Richmond Emmanuel Church and I have not done less as a Rector when I become a bishop but more because I have more resources and connections.
What have you made for the Lord as a good steward?
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to be a good steward to further your Kingdom. In Jesus name we pray . Amen.
