Discipleship supports individuals in loving from a position of Spiritual, Social, Emotional or Economic poverty into an empowered position of meaningful contribution and productive participation. Here are a few practical examples of this: Helping at Westhill Park’s Supper Outreach or Gentle Road’s Street Luncheon are entry points in the process – we are accessible in the community. We us Music Ministry to come alongside people, helping them to identify problems and shift their focus. In Mentorship and Brothers in the Hood discipleship groups, we engage in the upper steps of the process – developing commitment active engagement, etc.
While most of our ministry activity id linked to Gentle Road Church, quite a bit is also outside of that connection. This includes mentorship to several Indigenous single Christian men (one of whom is homeless), outreach ministry with Westhill Park Baptist Church, and Vivian’s practical support to members of the community. I will be stepping away from Gentle Road High School Youth Ministry at the end of May. This was a temporary posting and Gentle Road has found an excellent replacement.
We have upcoming events planned in conjunction with Carriers of Hope Ministry that include tent outreaches on June 21st and July 1st, prayer of reconciliation from June 27th – 30th and 3 two-day Discipleship training seminars from July 2 0 10. May God bring His hope and healing!
