My heart is so overwhelmed as I write this. The last twelve months have been filled with the incredible and powerful work of God in the lives of men. He has worked to create one of the most significant years in the history of Promise Keepers Canada.
I have been humbled as men at many events have lined up to share with me how God has used this ministry to impact their lives. We have seen God’s power at work to transform the lives of men of all ages. He has rescued hundreds of men from sin and adopted them into His family. Men are growing as husbands and fathers and are taking action to serve the needs of the poor and oppressed.
For the first time in our history, we have had over 500,000 ministry interactions with men! Our efforts to reach younger men have grown significantly through This Is Me TV and youth breakouts at all our conferences. Attendance increased at our conferences and workshops held across the nation. We facilitated three mission trips instead of our usual one.
Most importantly, men are growing closer to Jesus. The feedback for the content of our new daily devotional has been outstanding. Thousands of men who attended the “All In” conferences learned how to invite the Holy Spirit to fill them and guide their every thought and action.
I give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart. I give thanks for His gracious work in the lives of men through this ministry. I give thanks to Him for you. Your prayers, service, and financial support are all critical, and God is blessing your faithfulness.
In the last year, there has been a rise of public awareness for godly men. We are living in a time of gender confusion, and a time where men’s abusive actions toward women are being brought to the public focus. These and many other stories remind me that there is still so much work to be done.
While we celebrate the past twelve months together, I also urge us all to not become complacent. The stakes are high – we need godly men in every corner of society. The vision is great – to see every man becoming, growing, and living as disciples of Jesus Christ.
Together with you in the vision to Leave No Man Behind!
