A Message From David Wells
 
Pentecostals across Canada are diverse in many ways. We are male and female, young, middle-aged and old, rural and urban, and we represent multiple cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Some of us have been involved in church life from birth while others are newly connected to God’s family. With all this diversity, it’s good to remember the things we have in common and our foundation as a family of faith.

We believe this shared life we have in Christ calls for certain core practices. Whatever our gender, personality or ethnicity, we are called to read God’s Word, to pray, to give, and to share our faith—every day. These core practices of a follower of Jesus are what we, as leaders of our Pentecostal family, are calling each of us to exercise as Every Day Faith.

My desire is that, as Christ followers, we will:

ReadRead Every Day so we become disciplined followers of Jesus, grounded in the Word of God;

PrayPray Every Day and develop an intimate relationship with the Lord, marked by lives of continual prayer;

GiveGive Every Day, being generous with all we have and do, just as the Lord has been to us;

ShareShare Every Day, empowered by the Spirit to be Christ’s witnesses in word and deed.


I am convinced that this is what our daily lives must look like as Christ’s disciples. I want everyone I know to experience the joy of being His witness! We can reverse existing discipleship trends and see the body of Christ strengthened and empowered.

As a Fellowship, this is our desire.  In the days ahead you will see a renewed and expanded focus of the PAOC’s strategic initiatives, Pray Every Day and Give Every Day to include Read Every Day and Share Every Day.  You will receive a monthly Everyday Faith e-blast  that will include prayer points and scriptures for the month, resources and discipling tools, themed articles, an online opportunity to inspire and share resources with other churches and individuals, and more.  Let’s live out Every Day Faith, today and throughout all of 2013.  Happy New Year!
