Churches in Partnership, Sharing Resources, Inviting and Equipping Disciples

Greetings to you in the Name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

I am writing to invite you to participate in a brand new initiative being developed by the Department of Congregational Leadership and RenewalWe are excited to see what God is doing in our churches here in Connecticut and want to pass along and share that excitement.

Our team at CLEAR (Congregational Leadership and Renewal) want to serve you as a resource in the areas of Evangelism and Leadership Development.  We recognize and celebrate the experience and expertise that exists right here in our churches in Connecticut and want to tap into that wealth of knowledge to the benefit of all of our congregations.

Would you please take a moment or two to jot down some of your favorites resources related to Evangelism and Leadership Development, whether they be books, articles, podcasts or other online resources that you believe might be of benefit to our ABCCONN family and send them by email to Pastor Bob Beckwith with a copy to Brittany Stephenson?

In this season of isolation and separation, it might be an even greater blessing if you felt compelled to share your suggestion in the form of a short video describing the resource and how it has blessed and encouraged you personally. (Think Reading Rainbow….)

As Paul once wrote to the Church in Thessalonica “And now the word of the Lord is ringing out from you to people everywhere, even beyond Macedonia and Achaia, for wherever we go we find people telling us about your faith in God.” [1 Thessalonians 1:8a (NLT2)]  It is our desire to see our ABCCONN family “ringing out” the Good News of the Gospel of our Lord.

Please join us in this initiative.

For the CLEAR Team

Pastor Bob Beckwith
