Ministry Updates – IC Convention

Sign up to get the Guy and Chris West FEBC Prayer Update HERE

Just returning from the FEBC International’s International Committee Conference (ICC) and the buzz is that it was one of the best ever.  I think that is because of your prayer support.  Whenever people from so many countries get together, it is prayer support, that makes sure relationships stay positive and ensures that real communication takes place among the participants.

Each year all of the Field Directors and Chairperson’s of the board gather as the official governing body of FEBC International Association.  There are meetings where these representatives take up the business of FEBC, vote to elect new Association officers, review and vote on any proposed changes to the membership and have plenty of fellowship.  Sharing stories of challenges, best practices and wisdom that comes from experience is a very important part of the gathering.

Accomplishments of Note

Your prayers had an impact on this year’s annual FEBC IC Conference.  All the participants agreed that it was incredibly productive and that our field directors and board chairmen did a lot of relationship building.  Key accomplishments to celebrate at the ICC were:

  • FEBC welcomed Kyrgyzstan as a new member field of FEBC Internatinal
  • FEBC welcomed new associate field Ukraine
  • To provide better accountability and to protect the name of FEBC, the IC delegated more authority to the Executive Committee to enforce the charter standards of FEBC International
  • Announced initial funding for and creation of a new International Growth Fund, administered by the Executive Committee to promote strategic efforts to expand the ministry of FEBC

The International Service team attends the ICC each year.  The team’s admin group, Barb, Vicki, Brigit and Vaughan  along with  International Service Coordinator Guy support the operation of the convention.  The other team members attend because its very cost effective to be present when all of your “clients” are in the same place at the same time. Everyone was able to get together at the ICC this year except Eila, who stayed home to take care of her husband as he recovers from a difficult illness.

Thanks to all for your prayer support.
