Several years ago, leaders from Forward Edge were invited by the president of a billion-dollar Christian ministry to visit their international headquarters. After a full day of meetings, I was accompanied to my car by one of the ministry’s top leaders—a man who’d been serving with the organization for more than 40 years.
“You know, a part of me is jealous of you guys,” he confided to me. “I remember when we were a much smaller organization and could respond more quickly to urgent needs in the U.S. and around the world. Sometimes there are real advantages to being small and nimble.”
I distinctly recall driving back to Vancouver that day not only grateful for the unique calling on Forward Edge, but appreciative of the way God can use each of us to make a unique and meaningful contribution to His purposes in the world. We don’t have to be “big” or “super talented.” We just have to be obedient.
Mother Teresa was once asked: “What’s the secret of your success?” She responded: “God didn’t call me to be successful. He called me to be faithful.”
Thank you for being a valued partner with the ministry of Forward Edge. I hope you will always be inspired by the reality that God purposefully designed YOU to make a unique and significant contribution to His purposes in the world. You see, none of us will ever know the full value and ultimate impact of what God calls us to do in His service. All we can know is if He calls us to do something, it has value. And that’s everything we need to know.
Founder and President
