Thanksgiving Message from your DS

We're entering into a wonderful season of the year, the season of Thanksgiving. And I was reminded as I was preparing for this talk to you today that the scriptures tell us,

"In everything, give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." (1 Thess 5:18)

You see, that's where our Thanksgiving belongs. That's where our Thanksgiving is rooted. It's in Christ Jesus. And it's concerning you. It's concerning your friends. It's concerning people who are not yet followers of Jesus Christ. It's concerning the people in your church. It's concerning the people of our world, where our IWs are seeking to reach them with the good news of Jesus Christ.

And so I want to express my thanks to you as members of the CPD family.

Hi CPD Family,

Please take two minutes to watch my video about an upcoming change in my ministry. I will be stepping down from my job at the District and this video explains why. This has been a hard decision for me, because I love serving you all. But, as you will see, I’m looking forward to the next chapter in my life!

Focusing on Christ During Challenging Times [Video]

August Message from your DS

During these days when things are not what they should be and maybe not what you would like them to be and certainly not what they've been, my encouragement to you lay leaders and pastors and CPD family, is to use this again as an opportunity to know Christ.

Let's focus on the Christ who came and the Christ who will come again, the Christ, who is our holiness, who is our sanctifier.

Let's increasingly get to know Him.

It's in Him that we live and move and have our being. This is our opportunity during these days. This is our privilege during these days.

I am happy to highlight two of our recent workers in my blog this month. Paige Reddick Morris was ordained the Sunday after Encounter in Hawaii this year. Hou Lei was ordained on June 27th complete with the proper COVID protections.

I asked each of them to share a short biography so we all could get to know them better. So proud of the accomplishments of these members of the CPD family!

Testimonies from Hispanic Leaders in the Central Pacific District

Four Testimonies from Leaders in the CPD

Testimony from Edgar castro

Today, I would like to share my personal experience at the CPD and the experiences of some other brethren.

When they called me to work at the CPD, I personally believed it would be challenging for me, because within me, I knew about my limitations, such as my English accent and being a Hispanic. I knew that the CPD never had a Hispanic person as a part of the staff, which was scary for me.

Every day, I came to work, expecting that one of my Anglo-American colleagues would be telling me something negative about my English accent or my origin, but that never happened. All District staff, without exception, have always have seen me, and continue to treat me, not as a Hispanic, but as their brother in Christ.

The response to our first video of CPD blessings was so positive, I am sharing another video compilation of our pastors who shared a ONE MINUTE video. I encourage you to take six minutes to watch it. I’m positive it will be a blessing to you!

I’ve already got some more ONE MINUTE videos, but I can use more! Please send me a video of an unexpected blessing that you have experienced to our Dropbox folder by clicking here.

I will share another compilation next week. Will yours be a part of it?

Let’s encourage one another during this challenging time.

What Will Happen to the Church in the Post-COVID Era?

[fa icon="calendar'] April 23, 2020 / by Mike Mitchum posted in Leadership, News

[fa icon="comment"] 1 Comment

On Thursday, April 16, 2020 several of our workers, including the District Staff, attended the EguippingU webinar entitled, Leading the Church in the Post-COVID Era.

This webinar was the best discussion I have seen so far about planning for the changes that will inevitably come to the church after the crisis has passed. When will that happen? The answer to that question is far from certain, but it is certain that this COVID-19 crisis will come to an end at some point.
