Latest News from Grace Leaders Network

On Tuesday Make the Trek to Canyon Lake!   


One of the hidden gems in our Network is a small but mighty church in southwest Riverside County called New Hope Community Church. Planted a couple of decades ago by Chris & Jan Suitt, it has a variety of unique outreaches and opportunities to spur us on as leaders. For our April 9th Grace Leaders Network gathering we will have the chance to learn about two of these items:

Hope Learning Academy1) The Hope Learning Academy - an "at-risk" private school. More than just a private school, and definitely not just "a program", it is a holistic approach to real change for teens and their families. Whether the issue is teen pregnancy, apathy, drug use, anger, or any other at-risk behavior...there is hope! Paul Krueger founded this school and will share with us about the ministry.

2) Insights from Israel - In addition to leadership at New Hope Church, Chris Suitt leads tours with Hope For Israel and this month (March 2019) will be in Israel again. We've asked Chris to share with us some insights that will help us as shepherds to our ministries here in SoCal.

Our Network wants to get behind providing opportunities for our regional leaders to connect with other leaders in their sphere of ministry. Our Fellowship has been doing this type of thing with its annual Access Conferences the last couple of years. Some that we have outlined are:
 
·     Spanish-speaking leaders  
·     Children’s ministry leaders - infants through elementary
·     Youth ministry leaders - middle school & high school ministry
·     Worship leaders 
·     Administration leaders - office managers & administrative leaders
·     Christian School leaders - (administrators, teachers)
·     Women’s Ministry leaders 
 
If you are interested in connecting with a cohort of leaders in your ministry sphere, please contact Shepherding Advocate Bob Wriedt about your interest!

Chaplain Dan Ruiz Report

From Col. Mark Penfold of the Eagle Commission, we received this report about the former pastor of Grace Fellowship in Cherry Valley, Air Force Chaplain Dan Ruiz, his wife Kassi and their daughters:
 Dan and Kassi are extremely busy and doing great ministry.  His commanders and all the supervisory chaplains spoke highly of Team Ruiz.  Dan serves as the chaplain to a maintenance squadron for refueling planes, primarily the KC-10.  His unit works 24/7. In order to visit all his Airmen and officers, Dan and his Chaplain Assistant have incredibly long hours.  Dan is also the pastor for the base’s contemporary service.  Kassi is involved with Protestant Women of the Chapel (PWOC) and the Spouses’ Club.  Keep Dan and his family in your prayers.
