Barb Schindel and Kevin Smith leading worship. It was incredible to sing some of the old hymns in such a beautiful venue. Barb shines as a worship leader at any time but was even better than usual on this night. Kevin led "Amazing Grace" during the offeratory and it was fantastic.
Arne Bryan is a legend. He founded Prayer Canada over 35 years ago and is a pioneer in the area of inspiring the church to pray for government. He has prayed with provincial premiers from across the country as well as countless mayors. Our ministry growth and success thus far has come largely because of the vision and ministry of Prayer Canada. We are grateful to Arne for his support, partnership and constant encouragement.
Here are some close up family shots that were taken during the prayer of dedication. Barb is in the centre and has been brave, courageous and bold through this ministry transition. She's also been a constant source of encouragement and blessing. Brittany is our daughter. As Arne prayed over us that night, he singled her out as representing the generations that will follow. She has made some huge adjustments during the past year and has done remarkably well. We are very proud of her.
Some candid shots with friends and partners.
