Two years ago, Scott took the role of INTERIM Community Transformation Director of our ministry in the Portland area.
As we have worked together to help bring integrated community transformation to Rockwood, our teammate Lindsey Boulais has filled the role as "Ministry Coordinator for Refugees". Her incarnational living experience in Barberry Village, her love for children and influence in their families, her teaching skills and intelligent thinking, learning mindset, and organizational abilities have all been huge assets to our collaborative efforts.
But we have also grown to appreciate Lindsey's leadership skills. Her ability to encourage and work with others, the continual asking of good questions, her development of ministries, inviting the input of others and making decisions, attention to detail and focus on vision and purpose are just a few examples.
In mid-August, the president of International Teams Scott Olson, and U.S. Senior Area Director Keith Allison visited us in Portland in order to help me "pass the torch" to Lindsey. Effective September 1st, Lindsey is now the CTD for our team, and we are all joyfully confident in submitting to her humble leadership as God uses her to lead us all into better and deeper places of making Him known in Rockwood and beyond!
Thanks for your continued prayers on her behalf!
