Dear Friend and supporter of Threshold Ministries:

I am thankful to God for the opportunity granted me at our Annual Meeting to serve as the Board Chair of Church Army, now newly renamed Threshold Ministries.

We are at a crucial time in our History.  Having celebrated 80 years in Canada, we are rebranding ourselves so that while building on the foundations laid over the last 80 years, we may with vigor refocus on the continuing mission, to join Jesus in “seeking and saving the lost.”  We have a very dedicated company of evangelists serving under the exceptional leadership of Bruce Smith.  Miracles of grace are reported weekly.  It is a privilege to be associated with these gifted servants of our Lord Jesus Christ.

For many years we depended for any shortfall in donations on the money generated from the sale of the property we had owned in Toronto.  That money also provided the excellent buildings we now occupy in Saint John. The remainder has now been used for ministry purposes.

You, our supporters, are a dedicated, generous company, without whom the work could not continue.  And we depend on you from month to month for the gifts that enable us to continue.  I know that many of us are doing all that we can.  For those of us who can do a little bit more, now is the time it will make a strategic difference to what Bruce and his team can accomplish in our name for the sake of our Lord Jesus Christ, as we renew our efforts under the Threshold Ministries banner.

Sincerely in His Name.
John W. Irwin, Chair

?To the praise of God, we are seeing this truth being realized in Threshold Ministries, through street level projects, prison chapels, youth gatherings, cafe-style church meetings, camps, home meetings, drop-ins, and with congregations turning inside out. Taking the good news into the market place is not priority; it is not a consuming compelling vision of ours, unlike our brothers and sisters in much of Asia, Africa and South America.


General News

The prognosis was stark according to the medical statistics and I spent some of those early days in fear, but as time went on I had joy and peace, and faith in God because He has been so very present with me throughout. From the day I first found out that what was interfering with my ability to swallow food, talk and even breathe was a tumour in my throat, God promised He was going to heal me.
