The Let's Move Vancouver initiative has been slowly taking shape.On September 16, the Vancouver Metro pastors met at the Oakridge Adventist Church to plan the next steps. Here is a summary:

New Coordinator Jenessa Little was hired as the Let's Move Vancouver Coordinator.She will be overseeing the entire initiative under the direction of Kumar Dixit.Little has been leading the discipleship ministry as a pastoral intern at Oakridge Church. Under her leadership, she has started and trained over 50 small groups throughout the city of Vancouver. In her new role, she will be building a team of Church Captains, and coordinating the efforts of Let's Move Vancouver.

Faith for Today Partnership Michael and Gail Tucker from Faith for Today have signed on to participate with LMV. They will lead a Mad About Marriage seminar on March 4-6, 2016. After that, the area churches will collectively run a six-week teaching series, with simultaneous small groups related to healthy and holistic relationships. After the teaching series, the Tucker's will return to Vancouver to hold a reaping meeting on April 22-24, 2016.

Training for Lay Members The success of Let's Move Vancouver will be dependent on lay member involvement. The pastors have agreed to set aside one Sabbath every month for the next fifteen months for training, called Momentum. Each month the members will have an option to choose from three seminars related to outreach, evangelism, small groups, bible study, and health. The first training event is scheduled for October 24, 2015 at the Cornerstone Church, in Coquitlam.

In the Works  There are several other exciting things that are on the horizon. We are planning on a large-scale health exhibit in the spring of 2016. In addition, we are in the middle of scheduling Ty Gibson and David Asserick to hold separate reaping meetings in the latter part of 2016.More details to come.

Prayer is the Greatest Need  When the metro pastors met on September 16, they identified the single greatest need for the success of LMV is prayer.We are praying for an army of prayer warriors to join the LMV prayer team. If we are going to reach this secular city for Jesus Christ, it is going to require the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
