"This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, He will hear us.” - I John 5:14

Dear Pastors and District Leaders:
By now you are aware that Dr. Ian Fitzpatrick has resigned as our District Superintendent to follow God's direction in leading all of our Canadian churches as National Director.
In Early August, under the direction of General Superintendent Dr. Eugenio Duarte and USA/Canada Regional Director Dr. Bob Broadbooks, your District Advisory Council met to consider the next steps in locating God's anointed future leader for our district.
The DAC was subdivided into 2 Committees:
a Process Committee which would gather and process information related to the research and transition of the District Superintendent Leadership, and
a Prayer Committee which would call the entire district church to prayer as we seek God's direction in finding our new leader.
The DAC Prayer Committee would like to call everyone to focused prayer as we partner with God in accomplishing His will for our district. Will you join us in this effort?
Please read the attached bulletin insert for more detailed information as we begin praying strategically over the next few weeks.
Pastors, we ask that you put the attached Bulletin Insert in your church bulletin as we try to inform and encourage as many of the CCD Family as possible to join in this great prayer movement.
As weekly prayer points are sent to you, would you please include these in your weekly announcements and corporate prayer times? These will be sent out via e-mail and the CCD Prayer Group Page, and included as additional "Prayer Points", below..
Thank you in advance for praying and encouraging others to pray!
In Christ, Rose Sorzano Bev Crossley, Gloria Gillian, Rose Sorzano, Cindy Stavropoulos DAC Prayer Committee
Here are some prayer points and dates to remember:
Pray for pastors and leaders as they complete the survey which will be used to develop the profile of our new District Superintendent (due September 15).
Pray for the Process Committee as they do the work of processing this information. (September 22).
Pray that there will be a clear sense of God’s direction for all who are involved in this decision making process.
Pray for God’s will to be done in all of our lives and the future of the Canada Central District Church of the Nazarene.
