Church family: Please welcome Rebecca van den Brink to our staff! Rebecca has been hired as our Director of Discipleship and Care Ministries. She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in the areas of discipleship and compassion ministries. She graduated from Regent College with a Master of Arts in Applied Theology and has a proven track record of establishing discipleship plans and discipling relationships in multiple churches in different countries. As noted in our Vision Night/AGM, we are preparing to transition out of this pandemic and our emphasis will be on authentic relationships that lead to missional living and growth as disciples of Jesus. Rebecca will play a key role in helping our church family embrace these Christ-centred relationships. If you want to know more about our discipleship plan and care ministries, please tune in to our fall sermon series called, HOME. Furthermore, if you would like to get to know Rebecca, please check out our podcast episode coming soon where we will interview Rebecca so that you can get to know her personally and to understand her professional experiences that led her to be the best person for this role at our church.
I am absolutely thrilled to work alongside Rebecca to serve our church family well. I trust God will bless our church through her. You can personally welcome Rebecca to our team by sending her an encouraging email. Rebecca also asks you to pray for her as she develops a discipleship plan that fits our church family best. She believes in the power of prayer, so she is asking the church family to pray for this discipleship plan to yield fruit for God's glory.
