How many churches in the Fellowship in 2022?

I recently crossed the country visiting our Regional conferences. Three were LIVE while two remained virtual.

Pacific Conference

It was a joy to spend time face-to-face with many of our church leaders. We talked about how they and their local churches were doing post-COVID. I heard from a lot of tired brothers who remain hopeful for good days ahead now that we’re getting out from under lockdowns and restrictions. I also heard that many of our folks have chosen not to return. I’d guess many of our churches have returned to 60-85% of their pre-COVID Sunday morning attendance.

News from the Regional Conferences

In most of the five Regional conferences I heard about VISION – a prepared future. I found it inspiring to hear one of our Regional Directors declare the plans they were considering for the future was a hill he was willing to die on.

In all of our five Regional conferences I heard about leaders getting healthy. Our Atlantic Region’s conference was exclusively on this important theme.

In each Regional Conference I was able to thank our churches and donors for their generosity towards our FAIR Ukraine Refugee Crisis emergency appeal. I mentioned the amount received from the local churches in each Region. It has been extraordinary to see the generosity of the Fellowship family during this appeal. I am currently in Poland at the border of Ukraine to witness our efforts in caring for refugees.

I trust you will be encouraged as together we rejoice in what God has accomplished and what He continues to do in and through us as a Fellowship of churches.
