I believe this will be the new theme and mantra for the 2005/2006 ministry season.


That is to say that we will be focusing on intentionally building...

1. A culture of prayer,
2. A culture of discipline,
3. A culture of discipleship,
4. A culture of evangelism, and
5. A culture of leadership.


I also believe that our mandate is to the 20/40 Window. That is, men and women between the ages of 20 and 40 years old. But with a strategic emphasis on reaching children under the age of 13 years old.

Vision Statement

Been working on a vision statement for NuComm since ILI Singapore. Thought I had 4 pretty good "to be" statements until I was inspired by the first chapter of Kevin Roberts' "Lovemarks." How's this for a try?

To be revered as an unstoppable force for catalyzing transformational leadership and redemptive teams in the home, the marketplace and the world.

Personally, I think it's pretty kickin'!

International Leadership Institute

Beth and I have been in Singapore for the past 2 weeks attending the ILI Conference at the invitation of Isaac Lim. It's been a grueling schedule but well worth it!

I don't even know where to begin to share the insights we've learned and the impact the Lord has made upon our lives. We've received so much affirmation. Though my body may feel tired from the full schedule (8:30am-9pm), I feel invigorated! I also feel like I have fresh direction for the ministry and for our lives.

Some of the highlights of this trip that I will always treasure are:

Finding new, loving mentors in Isaac and Shirley Lim...worldclass leaders in my opinion.

New friendships we've made with 30 people representing 17 different nations (Myanmar, Nepal, Cambodia, India, Pakistan, Malaysia, Brazil, Nigeria, Indonesia, Singapore, USA, Iran, Isle of Man, Philippines, New Zealand, England, Sri Lanka).

City Harvest Church and getting to meet with Pastor Kong Hee...20,000 members and growing!

I bet we'll be talking about this for years to come. :-)
