Dear Pastors and colleagues:
Greetings in Christ from FACCES!
We thank God for His Grace in the imminent development of ministries within FACCES since its inauguration in 2013.
We organize a « FACCES Pastoral Leadership Symposium « once every two years in different European cities. There will be one this year to be held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The date will be: October 9-12, 2017. The keynote Speaker will be: Rev/Dr Ka-lun Leung, President of ABS-HK (Alliance Bible Seminary in Hong Kong). He is a church historian, thought provoking speaker with deep passion for church mission, and has much experience in teaching and pastoral ministry.
In view of the unfamiliarity of the historical background, mission advocacy, and even the Fourfold Gospel of the Alliance, among the majority of our Alliance coworkers serving in Europe, we have therefore set the theme of the Symposium as: « All For Jesus », intending to share about the Alliance Heritage and Alliance Spirit.
We have also invited Rev/Dr Matthew Chiu, Senior Pastor of SCAC (Scarborough Chinese Alliance Church) from Canada. SCAC is a fervent church supporting global evangelization of the Christian and Missionary Alliance in Canada, by sending International Workers and Short Term Mission teams. He will offer the Symposium a special topic in « Building a Healthy Church «
We esteem great encouragement to everyone through this Symposium, no matter you are presently a pastor, leader, or one of the second generation, this opportunity will certainly offer us the Alliance family a direction in our future Mission endeavors.
On behalf of FACCES, I sincerely invite you/your church to be present in the Symposium.
May the Faithful God continue to work among you, giving you extra strength and Grace, and the abundant Jehovah Jireh!
Rev. Thanh Nguyen
