I pray this email finds you well and enjoying the early stages of summer (that's probably a bit premature but I can't help myself, I love the heat!). Many have asked for a life update recently, so it felt like a good time to catch you up to speed.
For starters, I have officially finished my time pastoring at Selah Fire in Drayton, ON. Leaving has not been easy, as I've said "see you later" to many people whom I love dearly and wholeheartedly believe in. My final service was nothing short of special, full of emotion and mutual gratitude, capped by the church giving me a Nord Stage Piano as a parting gift. If you're a musician, you'll know what that means and appreciate it dearly.
I have now entered a season of rest and recuperation. A trip to Florida (where I turned 27), a decent amount of Netflix, and a few ministry events have marked the season so far. Most notably, I had the privilege of training and equipping over 700 youth in the prophetic at the All Ontario Youth Convention during the May long weekend (pictured above). I am still receiving testimonies of youth and youth leaders hearing God's voice for the first time in shockingly accurate ways. I also taught a breakout session on the Holy Spirit, where over 20 healings took place, including a girl who had vocal nodes for 8 months. It was a powerful weekend.
Looking ahead, I am planning to make a few live worship videos, featuring new songs that I've written since the release of Deeper. I can't wait to share them with you!
At the end of June, I'll be off to Europe for a 2.5 week ministry trip to Belgium, Holland, and Germany. I am leading worship, training worship teams and also speaking at several churches. Unfortunately, my initial plan to visit Africa afterwards has fallen through. Instead, I have the privilege of leading worship for Steve and Sandra Long, Senior Leaders of Catch The Fire, as they minister along the east coast of Canada in August.
Once my summer is complete, I hope to begin full-time ministry again in the fall, Lord willing. At this point I'm not sure what that will look like. I am seeking God for direction, and also for potential ministry-related entrepreneurial opportunities as well.
Please keep me in your prayers as I travel to Europe, Montreal, Moncton, Halifax and PEI; I'd also greatly appreciate prayer as I seek God for what is next.
Praying that God surrounds you in His love and Presence this summer!
