Become a Covenant Partner, Today!
To: IAOEC Leadership, Members and Covenant Partners
RE: Leadership /Members’ Tithes and Covenant Partner Pledges
Greetings and Salutations,
First, I’d like to first thank all of you for your ministry works and efforts, to not just myself but to the International Anglican Orthodox Episcopal Communion, as well. Many of you know that for sometime I’ve been praying and fasting about transitioning back into full-time ministry to The Communion and the Christian University. After many months of seeking God’s direction, International Elect-Lady and I have submitted to God’s voice, as reflected in Matthew 22: 14, "For many are called, but few are chosen.” and the decision has been reached to step out and go.
2015 is an important year and The Communion is moving at an eminent pace, along with the demands on myself to pastor and mentor leadership, globally. I am a Pastor to other Elders, Pastors, Bishops and Archbishops, alike and doing so it has taken up much of my personal time, income and resources and has taken a toll on my ability to function as a bi-vocational ministry leader.
In which, we are sitting on the greatest move of the Holy Spirit, yet seen by this generation of Christian believers today. This is an hour of purpose and great destiny and you, my faithful friends are a part of this great Convergence movement.
As a result of the high demand to go and do much more. I’ve come to the decision to step away from our secular work in order to meet the demands of The Communion and Christian University’s needs; transitioning out into the world mentoring ministry leadership, as well as faith-based organizational leadership globally. One cannot run a ship in the ocean with a part-time Captain.
Therefore, as of July 1, 2015 I am requiring all the IAOEC Leadership and Members of the Order of St Eusebius, to tithe on their works starting this coming month as well as love offering throughout the year. In addition, I am requiring all faith-based organizational leadership and business vendor in fellowship with The Communion and/or the University to become an IAOEC Covenant Partner, by making a monthly pledge, annually. Details will be going up on The Communion website. IAOEC Leaders will continue to refer to the APPLY page, while Covenant Partners will refer to the new PARTNER page on the website.
Teaching and implementing this order is the right and biblical way for us to move forward. I have labored before God with this, as well as fasting about this. IT IS THE RIGHT THING and I need or leadership to step up, step out and take care of this. If you are going to function and maintain your leadership status within the IAOEC, then you’ll do the right thing, with a cheerful heart.
In 2 Corinthians 9:7 it says, “Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver”. Therefore, try God to see if He will pour back to you a blessing as a result of your obedience.
If you each of you are in agreement with the my vision, then I will know by your words and actions moving into the 2nd quarter of 2015 and the years to come. International Elect-Lady and myself are very excited about the upcoming events and are anticipating seeing each of you. Until then, God bless you, we love you and we could not do this without you.
