By Tonia Shroyer – Senior Pastor
Isn’t it amazing how the goodness of God seems to accelerate our life? Hard times of trail, pain, failures, and course corrections can cause us to feel like we are in slow motion waiting for it to end. The way to accelerate to His goodness is to be reminded of His heart and voice.
This was evidenced by the positive testimonies we received from the men’s and women’s conferences that were strong in teaching and powerful prophecies that spoke into each individual heart.
Over the past 10 years, Christian Family Fellowship believers have warmly welcomed every guest speaker with honor, love, and grace. In return, we have received the best of their ministries and friendship.
Planting Ministry Seeds
CFF believers have also lived the Word in doctrine and practice. Through our ministry network, their giving hearts are now sowing directly into the lives of six itinerant ministers. The Lord is doing a mighty work through them.
CFF has been called to support individuals and specific situations that have been overlooked. We will continue to be faithful and open on all God is asking us to sow, plant, and fertilize together.
Building Kindness and Kingdom
We are also in preparation for our 25th YES! Camp (Youth Excelling Spiritually). If you would like to contribute scholarship support, please note that when you send your offering. Each camper registration is $295, which includes six days of meals, activities, and housing. Any amount will help!
Our event theme is “Be Kind,” from Colossians 3:12.
“Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.” Colossians 3:12 NIV
During the camp, our young pastors and leaders will be teaching, ministering, and guiding the younger generation.
We’ll also be hosting Dr. Roberts Liardon as a guest speaker for several days of the exciting time together. He will be teaching on new birth, speaking in tongues, and prayer.
November will bring our Kingdom Relationships Conference for singles and married couples. We are looking forward to hosting Pastors Alaric and Jane Hunt from the United Kingdom and Uganda.
Health in ALL Aspects
“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” 3 John 1:2 NKJV
For years, we have pursued the diversity of prosperity. Now, we are going to share articles from some wonderful believers on topics that help strengthen our physical and mental well-being.
We are so thankful for your friendship and encouragement. Our prayers for you are fervent. Together, the Lord is taking us all from glory to glory.
From the Passion Translation
A Final Exhortation
This is the encouragement the Lord gave me for you this season:
Weep not, for I am the One that sets the seasons of My creation and that should speak to the season of your life.
Distractions will always surround you; come to My Word to find focus and listen for My Son’s voice. He carries My authority, moves in My love, and is the mastery key that unlocks all you seek.
I am beckoning you to taste and see of the dreams and visions I know you can sense planted within your Spirit. This is not happenstance; it is My divine plan that you step into the fruit of My bounty.
The time for blame and shame has passed with the blood of My new covenant. Stop revisiting what I have already signed off on, and partner with all I have given you access to.
Search out the matter that stirs you the most and find in My Word what I have hidden for you. You bring life and fresh perspectives from My Spirit wherever you go.
So, don’t hesitate. Step out and I will shower you with all I have promised. You carry the riches people seek. You are my family, and I am proud that you know who you are and whose you are.
Our hearts are with you all. Send us your testimonies and prayer requests, and remember: here, you are loved and you belong.
