We wanted to let you know about a couple of changes that are taking place at CEF of Montana.
Our State Director, Dave Howe, has let us know that he is moving on to a new adventure and has retired from CEF of Montana. He has begun his responsibilities as interim pastor of a church in Ennis, MT. This kind of change can be a challenge and we are thankful that processes are in place. There are willing and capable hands remaining and our purpose remains the same. “To evangelize boys and girls, to disciple them in the Word of God, and to establish them in the local church!”
Chris and Megan Peabody and Lauren Grinder have been learning and preparing to take on more responsibilities in this transition. Their collective experience and passion for the Ministry gives us confidence, but more importantly, their desire to seek God’s will in both their personal lives and in the Ministry gives us peace. Please pray for them as they navigate the months ahead.
The State Board is also taking on more responsibility as we begin working with CEF USA to identify our new State Coordinator, which is the first step of becoming State Director. Dave and the board are fully behind Chris as State Coordinator, but as with any decision of this magnitude , it requires prayerful consideration and time. We are also committed to help with logistics, continually encourage, and to do a greater part in the fundraising efforts. Please pray for us as we manage this change, continue to seek board members, and strive to keep finances from becoming a concern.
Chairman, State Board, CEF of Montana
While we do need the funds that a banquet would provide, we are dealing with some important changes and need a little time before we can share the exciting news.
We have had a phenomenal summer reaching children for Christ and we look forward to many more. There will be more details to come, but here is a sneak peak: We had over 1,000 children attend VBS through the summer and 4,400 faces painted at the Billings Fair!
Thank you for your past support of CEF of Montana. Without your fervent prayers and generous giving, we would not have the freedom to focus all of our energies on reaching the children of Montana. We thank God for you!
