We're not ashamed of the gospel

We're not ashamed of the gospel

What a great privilege it is to write my first editorial as the new General Superintendent of the Elim churches and I’m looking forward to serving the Lord in this role.

I want to pay tribute to my predecessor Chris Cartwright, who has served as GS for the last eight years.

Chris is one of the nicest and most godly people I know, and I know he has given himself sacrificially to lead us over this time.

We are so grateful to him and pray God’s richest blessings on him and his wife Annie in this new chapter of their lives.

I love how God has been working through Elim over the last 109 years and I believe there is much more he is wanting to do in the future.

We were birthed in the extraordinary fires of revival as a group of people, sold out to the purposes of God, filled with t he Holy Spirit and emboldened by faith, were used by God to bring transformation to the lives of many people.

There were of course many challenges in the nation at that time, but God is never outdone by such things.

Today’s challenges may look different – we have a generation facing a significant identity crisis, poor mental wellbeing is impacting many, the most vulnerable in our society are facing desperate need, families are under pressure to work longer hours to fund their cost of living, household debt is increasing, wars and persecution around the world are resulting in many losing their lives and causing many millions of people to be displaced.

On top of this, trust seems to be at an all-time low in the leaders of governments, financial institutions, and local councils.

Our world is struggling – but we have the answer.
