Years back I would wander the halls of Missions Fest looking for organizations that were working with indigenous pastors around the world.
I remember finding barely any. Merely one or two each year was only sorta like the kind of organization I was interested in collaborating with. I had a few interesting conversations but there wasn’t any conclusive sense that, ‘This organization would be a fit’.
Little did I know at the time that I was to in fact found and direct the kind of organization I was looking for.
And even when we launched Capturing Courage International, there was still only a vague idea of the international aspect of the work.
Looking back I realize I had many if not all of the dots, but in the moment I couldn’t connect them.
Thankfully, the Lord is the master dot connector! And so here we are, as an organization, now ministering to thousands of pastors who are in turn ministering our material to tens of thousands of people.
The work has solidified, personally I’ve navigated the concentration stage and with the work picking up momentum, we know exactly what we do and how we do it.
Simply put, we are equipping and encouraging indigenous pastors around the world.
We do this through:
1. Building authentic relationships of mutual prayer and encouragements via email, facebook, phone, and texting.
2. Sending out Capturing God’s Heart on a monthly basis – this is a topical Bible study that is assisting in the spiritual formation of both pastors and their congregations.
3. Providing Walking in Spiritual Authority, a CCI Discipleship School curriculum comprised of three parts – The King’s Heart, At the Cross, Spiritual Authority.
4. By being on the ground with our colleagues around the world, participating in pastor’s conference, preaching and praying the heart of God, bringing inner healing and deliverance.
I’m heading to Mozambique in October. Pastor Daniel along with 9 churches have been waiting for me for over a year and a half. It’ll simply be good to in fact show up, to fellowship and to experience the Lord touching and encouraging and healing lives and hearts.
It is his specialty after all!
