Missions Month at SCommAC is a chance to explore the amazing work God is doing in the world, and an encouragement to our congregation to prayerfully consider how they can be part of that work themselves. Every Sunday we will feature special speakers and opportunities to learn and have our preconceptions about missions challenged. Here is our lineup of speakers:
SUNDAY NOVEMBER 5, 2017 – Derek Burnett
Derek has been married to Bonnie for over 22 years, with three children, two boys aged 18 and 16, and a daughter aged 10. They have been serving with the C&MA in Thailand since 1999. They moved to Phuket in July of 2013 as the C&MA’s desire to relaunch work in Southern Thailand, where the strategy would involve starting an international church for the 20,000 plus foreigners living on the island of Phuket; begin a social justice ministry; as well as begin to engage the Muslim peoples of the south the gospel.
SUNDAY NOVEMBER 12, 2017 – Rev. David Hearn
Dave Hearn is the President of The Christian and Missionary Alliance in Canada since 2012. Dave grew up in a godly home. In his early teens, he was confronted in a powerful way to move away from his concern with image and walk towards intimacy with God. Dave surrendered his life to Jesus and was lled with an overwhelming sense of joy. His passion is to see the C&MA in Canada as a Christ-centred, Spirit-empowered, and Mission-focused movement.
