Dear friends of the ministry,
Thank you to everyone who has participated in our classes and workshops—I hope they have blessed you. We are thankful for this technology as it allows Canadians from across the country to attend classes and training workshops in areas where there are no local classes.
From the beginning of the pandemic, the ministry has kept its focus on engaging people in relationship with God through knowing His Word. We will continue adding new online teachers and classes and offer our great training workshops for free. The only requirement is that you purchase your books for the classes and certain workshops.
In 2023, we hope to see hundreds of new students in our classes and training workshops as we start to do more in-person training and classes. We pray that God will create a greater hunger for God’s Word, especially in these difficult days as our culture is changing rapidly.
On November 29th, you can partner with us in our Giving Tuesday Project. Our goal is to raise $15,000. Any gift received on Giving Tuesday will be used to sponsor future students and leaders who participate in leadership and skills workshops both online and in-person at local churches throughout Canada. We are praying that God will send six hundred people to our workshops in 2023. The average cost for our training workshops is $25 per person. When we reach our goal of $15,000, six hundred people will be able to attend training free of charge!
Last year, Precept Canada set a goal of raising $10,000 and the Lord blessed the ministry with more than $20,000 in financial gifts. Friends, if this ministry has blessed you, I encourage you to seek the Lord and ask how you can pass that blessing on to someone else on Giving Tuesday.
How can you give? You will be able to give online on our website or by calling into our office, and one of our team members would be happy to serve you.
What can you do until then? Continue in prayer for this giving opportunity and about if and how much to donate this Giving Tuesday and share this campaign with those you know!
Thank you for partnering with us. Praying God will do more than we could ever ask or imagine.
Serving Him and you,
Mark Sheldrake, National Director
