We Are In Him

Terry & Bev Leblanc and a number of like-minded kingdom builders have given a significant amount of their life to holistic ministry to Native North Americans through My People.

Terry has written a powerful article in the latest edition of Faith Today concerning Native Suicide: A Challenge to the Church.

Terry comments, "The “manufacturing” approaches taken to ministry in the past, approaches that seemed to be more concerned with responses and outcomes (“making Christians” not creating disciples, civilizing not evangelizing)... “To a relationally driven, communal people this was devastating. Perhaps, in a world driven by the business mottos of bigger, better, more and faster – and related church perceptions of ‘success’- need to be revisited once again! What are our objectives as we engage with God in God’s mission?”

That same call challenges us all. What are we going to do about it?

Colossians 2:8-10
Watch out for people who try to dazzle you with big words and intellectual double-talk. They want to drag you off into endless arguments that never amount to anything. They spread their ideas through the empty traditions of human beings and the empty superstitions of spirit beings. But that's not the way of Christ. Everything of God gets expressed in him, so you can see and hear him clearly. You don't need a telescope, a microscope, or a horoscope to realize the fullness of Christ, and the emptiness of the universe without him. When you come to him, that fullness comes together for you, too. His power extends over everything.
