Congratulations Pastor Peter & Marie-Josee! #

It was a real blessing to be part of the PASSING THE BATON (Passer le témoin) at Centre Chrétien Lumiére et Vie in Mont Joli, Québec on Sunday, June 11, 2023.

Founding Pastor, Adeodat Levesque, stepped down as Lead Pastor and Pasteur Peter Oram was installed as the new pastor. Standing beside Pasteur Peter is his wife Marie-Josee.

It was also nice to have one of our ACOP members from Edmundston, NB, Patrick Couturier translating (on the platform with me). 

Rev. Verner Drost, Atlantic and Québec Regional Director 

Prayer Request for Allan Clark #

Thank you for your continued prayer for Allan as he recovers from surgery.

He is doing fine and though the surgeons did see the cause of the lung issue, it cannot be repaired or resolved. Lots of prayer and rest are needed.

Rev. Edward (Ed) Armbruster went to be with Jesus on June 10, 2023, he was 97 years old. He was ordained with ACOP for 70 years this past March—we honour his commitment to the Gospel.

Friendly Reminders #

Leading in ministry is highly demanding and extremely stressful – so much so that it’s common for leaders and their spouses to struggle with discouragement, burnout and relational issues.
