Location: Lithuania, Eurasia
Ministry Focus: Brent & Christy are Volunteers in Mission, which is a specific status within The Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada that was recently created to allow people like us to take part in the work of the denomination overseas, while still being based in Canada. As PAOC Volunteers in Mission, our goal is to inspire, equip and encourage local ministries to reach out to the most hurting people of their communities, particularly those who have been harmed by violence of all kinds (with a focus on trauma, sexual violence, war and genocide).
Ministry History: In May, 2016, Brent and Christy will travel to Lithuania, where Brent will teach a course on Addictions for LCC International University. This university equips leaders in a sensitive region of the world. Addictions are a major issue in Lithuania and the surrounding countries, and Brent was delighted to be able to have the opportunity to help equip these students to reach out to those suffering. We will then travel to the country of Georgia, where LCC University is establishing a campus for Syrian refugee students. There Brent will provide psychoeducation and support for the students in the area of psychological trauma.
Together Brent & Christy are sourcing out other opportunities to equip local ministries worldwide to reach out to the most hurting and traumatized people in their communities.
- Pray for the students of LCC University, both in Lithuania and Georgia.
- Pray for us as we prepare for the trip.
- Pray for our children as we travel.
