A Heart to Know the Lord – Reflections on 24-7 Men’s Discipleship Weekend

IMG_9806-2

This year’s 24-7 Men’s Discipleship Weekend took place February 18-21 and saw nearly 40 men come together to learn and apply the Word of God and have fun doing it. Arnie Armstrong from Millar College of the Bible was the event’s Bible teacher and focused his time on God’s covenant promises. We consider the event to be a success with both spiritual growth and plenty of fun had by all. David Kruse, who attended for the first time this year, gave us a clearer picture into what all the event had to offer:

The “24-7” men’s discipleship weekend was really good.  Lots of time was dedicated to biblical instruction, but there were still plenty of opportunities for conversation.  Getting to know the other guys is important when you’ve gathered 40 men of various ages from different churches and communities.

The choice of teacher was solid.  Arnie Armstrong opened the Bible as “the Book on Salvation.”  After hearing him explain connections between the Garden of Eden, Egypt, the Tabernacle/Temple, the Promised Land, and the promised Messiah, my faith in the God who orchestrates history was increased.  Seeing how the covenants God made with various people of faith built on each other helped me appreciate what Jesus accomplished, right down to the time of day he died.  Like many men who have grown up in church, I thought I had heard it all before, but these “big picture” observations made me even more impressed with our God.  Arnie’s personal illustrations, combined with his obvious zeal for scriptural truth and his sense of calling to teach it added up to a sense of anticipation about each session.

The Saturday afternoon [metal forging demonstration] workshop with Terry Wiebe was memorable; to have us stand around and listen to his story while he worked with hot metal was a great visual way to learn—iron sharpening iron.  The time in the Octagon was a highlight because we were talking about our own experiences, and caring for each other.  If that wasn’t enough of an exercise in trusting one other, we proceeded from there to a friendly competition involving shotguns [skeet shooting activity]! The schedule was well-paced (though I didn’t get enough sleep!) and the food was excellent. Thanks for all the time, effort, care, and prayer you put in to put it on. -David Kruse

Snow Camp 2016

IMG_8814
This year marks the 3rd Snow Camp we have had the privilege of operating here at Valley View Bible Camp on January 28-30 . The dynamics of Snow Camp has been fine tuned over the last few years but the vision to share the Gospel with those having least opportunity to hear has remained the same. We continue to partner with Youth for Christ Portage in an effort to utilize the skills and resources of both our organizations to further God’s Kingdom through the ministry of Snow Camp. This year saw 39 children attend from two local First Nations Reserves. We had the opportunity to see a few children return to camp for the 2nd or 3rd time as well as to welcome many new children.

Throughout the time the children were here they took part in many different fun activities like snow tubing, crafts, building wooden toolboxes, and mini stick hockey, just to name a few. In addition to activities, we had daily chapel times where we sang songs, listened to stories, and heard teaching that all clearly spoke to the power of the Gospel!

Many volunteers were needed to make the event a success; we would like to thank all who had a part in serving in this way! Below are some photos that capture just a portion of what we believe to be a successful Snow Camp filled with fun, friends and Gospel centred ministry.

If you have any questions about the event or would like to know how you can be a part of ministry at Valley View, feel free to contact us.

Oasis Retreat 2015 – ‘We Came, We Saw, We Rested’

IMG_0453

It is with a heart full of thankfulness that we say our first ladies retreat here at Valley View was a success! Seventeen of us in total came together to learn, fellowship and grow in our walk with the Lord and to rest. This retreat was geared specifically towards women in ministry, and our theme was “finding rest in every season.” With only two weeks before the retreat was supposed to happen we found ourselves with no registrations and questioning if this was really something we were supposed to be doing. We met together, prayed and trusted that God would bring the people. And that he did! It was such a wonderful group of ladies, and the amount of us made it feel personal. Pauline Doerksen was our speaker, and she did a wonderful job at conveying what God says in His word about Rest. This is a topic that is barely talked about in the church and we realized that it’s something we all need to hear. We’ve spent years trying to “do enough” for God, working long hard hours in our fields of ministry only to get burnt out and exhausted. She taught us from scripture that rest is to be the foundation of our Ministry and that its through rest that we minister. We realized that very often we see our need to finish the job, when time and time again in God’s word he teaches us that it’s His job to finish. Whose work are we doing anyways? Whether in full time ministry or ministering in the secular work force, it is God’s work we are doing, and it is his job to finish. Rest was and is a gift that God gives to his people, a gift that we far too often forget about or choose not to take hold of. God desires us to delight in resting in Him, even before all the work is done. God is interested more in us and how we’re doing then in the ministry we are fulfilling. We are his children; he cares for us and loves us in a way that we will never completely understand. 

We encourage you, wherever you are today, to take time to rest and get to know your heavenly Father better. If you’re in a season of burn out and exhaustion, stop and rest; His yoke is easy and his burden in light. Our Heavenly Father wants us to be still and know that He is God, to linger in his presence and find a rest that the world can never give. 

“When we stop caring about what we care about-we’re too busy.”- Mark Buchnanan
