I am so excited to be coming on board with Global Action as the new president. I have been teaching for GLOMOS (Global Action leadership training) since 2011, and most recently have been part of the curriculum rewrite team. In January, Phil Long and I met with 35 of our best students from Honduras and we cast the vision of taking GLOMOS to the next level-equipping them to teach GLOMOS classes in their different regions in Honduras. They left our two-day training focused and on fire to teach our curriculum to students they were going to recruit. Within a few weeks student enrolment was over 330! God is doing something BIG through Global Action and as we move forward, we want to make certain we are doing our part in providing the best curriculum and the best teachers to equip these new teachers. Even more so now, this strategy goes to the core of our mission at Global Action: Disciples making disciples!
As I transition to serving full time with Global Action in June, I am leaving my current position as teaching and discipleship pastor at Northern Hills Church in Brighton, Colorado. Northern Hills is my community, an active financial supporter of Global Action; and I will continue to teach for them Sunday mornings when I can and be part of that congregation. They have seen first-hand what GLOMOS is doing when our youth group went with me last year to El Faro (one of our training locations in Guatemala) to build a house, and I had the privilege of helping Rick Thompson teach the Old Testament module that same week. My wife Ermie, who works as a software analyst for Staples, went with us on that trip and travels with me whenever she can to our GLOMOS destinations. We just returned from teaching the Leadership module in Ukraine.
I am so grateful for Phil Long's ongoing personal support and for the Global Action board's guidance and encouragement as we move forward. God is up to something big and we want to be right in the middle of doing our part to expand His Kingdom worldwide. I am also so grateful for your support through your prayers and financial giving. I would love to hear from you and hear how God is working in your community. Better yet, I would love to come and spend time with you if it is doable and talk about ministry possibilities. Your partnership with Global Action is crucial as God takes our ministry to the next level. I wish you all of His best as we move forward together!
For His Kingdom,
