From Andres and Courtney:
Three years ago, we left the GTA and our Hope family and moved to Louisville, Kentucky to pursue theological education at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Our goal then, and our goal today, is to return to Canada and give ourselves to serving the local church for the advance of the gospel. Throughout our time in Louisville, the Lord has continued to confirm a call to pastoral ministry for Andrés and has also given Courtney the opportunity to grow and be trained as a biblical counsellor.
Over the past year, God has been opening a door for us to stay in Louisville for an extended season in order for Andrés to continue in his studies. God willing, Andrés will be starting a PhD in Biblical Theology under Dr. Tom Schreiner this fall at Southern Seminary. A PhD would give Andrés opportunities in the future to not only serve the church as a pastor, but to be involved in theological education, helping to train the next generation of Canadian gospel ministers. By May, Courtney will have completed her masters in Biblical Counselling and will be pursuing counselling opportunities, as well as her certification with the Association of Certified Biblical Counsellors.
We have been diligent to live frugally and stretch the finances the Lord has blessed us with. Due to visa regulations, however, our employment is limited and we are unable to fully support ourselves in this unexpected season of ministry training. For this reason, we are looking to the body of Christ to invest in what we believe to be God’s call upon our lives at this time. Perhaps you share our desire to see healthy gospel churches, robust theological education, and spirit-empowered biblical counselling in Canada. We feel that God has called us to prepare for a life of ministry that will impact these three areas of Canada’s spiritual need. Perhaps you would be glad to invest financially to see to work of the ministry continue in our nation. If so, we want to invite you to partner with us financially. Will you join us?
