ecclesia2Happy New Year to all our brethren all over North America and the rest of the world. May the Lord establish us, make it a year of favor and restoration in Jesus Name.The fellowship is moving forward. The chapter continues to march forward. The Lord has been faithful to strengthen the work in our hands. Our fellowship is stronger in North America with renewed sense of purpose and vision. Last year we had our second biannual REUNION event in Cleveland Ohio and had our first full business meeting. Praise the Lord! The unrelenting hands of the steering committee are still hard at work ensuring the fellowship endures.

Focus in 2017

Meet & Greet Events

In the past two years, we had some Meet & Greet events across USA and Canada, in the following cities – Chicago-Illinois, Houston-Texas, Brampton-Ontario, Whitby-Ontario, Calgary-Alberta, and Saskatoon-Saskatchewan. The calendar for 2017 is already in the works for such events in 2017. We plan to visit Dallas-Texas and The Carolinas-USA in 2017. Calgary meeting is always a major highlight each year. We plan to expand the event in Calgary this year. Watch out for details via our e-mail newsletters.

IVCU Students – Indigent, Persecuted for their Faith

IVCUAF North America would partner with IVCUAF Nigeria to support indigent and persecuted students. In 2017 IVCUAF North America will support 15 students the entire year. The chapter would be directly responsible for the selected 15 students. The fund management and disbursement would be handled by IVCUAF Nigeria. They have done this for years now, and we salute their effort. Our support has resulted in the decision to increase the allowance and the number of students.

IVCU Missionaries

The chapter will award two annual one-time donations of Fifty Thousand Naira to two selected IVCU Missionaries.

Financial Partnership – Keeping the Vision Fund

It was decided at the last North America REUNION’s business meeting in Cleveland, that we establish a new initiative to get members encouraged to become financial partners. The recommendation is for members to make a $20 donation minimum contribution every month per family. Members can elect to give a one-time donation or give at any tier.  We estimate that if up to 50 committed families/Individuals would participate in the Keeping the Vision Fund, our budget of $15,000 for the next two years would be attainable. Our fundraising campaign is branded “Keeping the Vision Fund.”

We ask that you consider giving to this vision. We abolished the concept of membership fees because we wanted everyone to give as persuaded and be connected to fellowship irrespective of their financial participation.

This year we need to complete our 501C3 application. When approved all donations to the fellowship in 2017 would be tax deductible for all US residents. We will pursue registering is a sister entity in Canada shortly to ensure more members are encouraged to give. I appreciate everyone in the USA, Canada, United Kingdom, and Australia and even in Nigeria who support the vision.

REUNION North America 2018

We had a great time of blessing at the last business meeting, plan early for the next one. REUNION 2018 will hold God willing on Thursday, June 28 – Sunday, July 1, 2018. Yes, it is still more than a year away, but early planning assures a successful event.
