Vaughan Baptist Christian Academy (VBCA)

December 28th, 2011

I am humbled and happy to announce to you that the congregation of the Vaughan Baptist Church has been led by the Lord to begin a Christian school ministry. We undertake this move with godly fear and sobriety! It has been a prayer and burden of our church family for a number of years and we believe that the Lord’s timing has arrived. As a ministry of our church, this traditional school will seek to evangelize, edify, and equip students to be God-honouring servants of the Lord Jesus Christ. In reaching out into our surrounding communities, we will endeavour to prepare young people spiritually, scholastically, and socially to live out their lives in the will of God to His good pleasure.

Brother Daniel Bousquet has been hired as the Principal of VBCA and will arrive here this summer. The school will start in September, 2013 and this will give Brother Bousquet a year to make all the necessary preparations. God has blessed and prepared him both academically and practically. He has a B.A. in English and a Master’s degree in Christian School Administration from Pensacola Christian College (PCC). After working as a teacher for several years at Liberty Baptist Christian Academy (LBCA) in Florida, he became the Principal there where he has served in that role the past five years. The school has a current enrollment of 490. His wife is my daughter Jennifer and she has a Master’s degree in English from PCC and teaches at LBCA.

We covet your prayers as we are already very busy with preliminary matters related to the school. If you have children who you would prayerfully consider placing in the school, please let us know. Though it is very early, we will be making a list of interested parents so they can be kept informed as things progress.

Pastor’s Pen – November 15, 2011

November 21st, 2011

On Sunday, September 18th, we celebrated our 20th anniversary with 302 in attendance.  It was a special celebration service honouring the Lord for what He has done!  Specially engraved commemorative key chains were given to those in attendance.

Since then, its been a busy church schedule including youth activities, men’s BBQ’s, Ladies meetings, and several missionaries coming through.

On Sunday mornings, my expository sermon series through the book of Philippians continues.  Sunday evenings are topical messages.  In the adult Sunday school hour, we are studying the book of Psalms while our mid-week Bible study continues from 1 Kings, followed by prayer groups.

The young peoples Sunday school class continues to meet at 10am along with our other Sunday school classes for the children.  The nursery is always open with a dedicated staff of workers.

This Sunday, November 20th, Evangelist Max Alderman will be preaching at 10am and 11am.  A SingSpiration will be held during the evening service at 6pm.

Our choir and play participants have been very busy preparing for our annual Christmas Cantata to be held on Sunday, December 4th at 11am.  Sunday school is at 10am. Following the Cantata, our families are bringing refreshments for a time of fellowship.  There is no evening service this week.

On Christmas Day, Sunday, December 25th, we will celebrate the birth of our Saviour at the 11am worship hour.  It is the only service that day.

Our midweek Bible study and prayer meeting will be held on Wednesday, December 28th, at 7pm.

On New Years Day, Sunday, January 1, 2012, Sunday school is at 10am and the morning service is at 11am.  I am preaching on “VBC: Vision 2012.”  There will be no evening service this Sunday.

Our annual Worker’s Banquet will be held on Saturday, January 7, 2012 at a restaurant to be named later.

Then, on Saturday, February 4th, we will be holding another Marriage Enrichment Fellowship.  Our couples come for an afternoon and evening of recharging and refreshing their marriages.

The biggest news over the past several months has been the decision by our congregation to start a Christian school.  As many of you know, it has been a burden and prayer request over the years.  But we have waited for God’s timing in undertaking such a monumental task.  By God’s grace and direction, the time has arrived.  Vaughan Baptist Christian Academy will open its doors in September, 2013.  We have already hired Brother Daniel Bousquet to be our Principal.  He will be arriving here this summer and taking a year to set the school up. God has blessed Brother Bousquet with both academic and practical knowledge.  He has a B.A. in English and a Masters degree in Christian School Administration from Pensacola Christian College.  After having taught for two years at Liberty Baptist Academy in Florida, he became their principal.  For the past five years he has been the principal of a Christian school that now enrolls 490 students.  His wife, Jennifer, is my daughter and she, too, has seven years of teaching experience with a Masters degree in English.  Plans have already begun here while we await Brother Bousquet’s arrival.  Many of our parents are excited about having a school for their children.  By God’s grace, this will be an extension of our ministry into the communities around us.  We covet your prayers for the days ahead as we seek to evangelize, edify, and equip student-servants of the Lord Jesus Christ!

Pastor’s Pen – June 15, 2011

June 16th, 2011

Last weekend’s Revival Services with Evangelist Max Alderman were truly a work of God!  Our church family spent weeks in prayer and fasting preparing our hearts for that which only the Holy Spirit could do.  I believe our hearts were primed.  The blessings overflowed our cups: there was great attendance at all five services; the special music was inspirational; the congregational singing was enthusiastic; the preaching was powerful; and the altar was so packed that folks were praying on the front row of pews.  To all of it, we say, to God be the glory!

This past Sunday morning, I continued my expository preaching series through Philippians.  In the evening, before we observed the Lord’s Supper, I preached from 2 Timothy 3 on: “The Lost At The Last Days.”  The teen and children classes were faithfully held at 10am and I continued my expository teaching series through the Psalms in my adult Sunday school class.

Soul winning, visitation, and John & Romans distribution are held each Tuesday.

Our greatest and most necessary service is our Wednesday evening Bible study and prayer meeting at 7pm.  Following the current expository study through 1 Kings, we break into our prayer groups and spend fervent time before the Throne.

This Friday, the men are meeting at Pastor Hird’s home for a BBQ.

Sunday is Father’s Day.  I will be preaching a special sermon to our dads.  On Sunday evening, Brother Blair Cassidy will complete his prophecy preaching series.

On Sunday, June 26th, our Missionary to Italy Frank Maietta will be us at 10am and 11am.

On Sunday, July 3rd, following the evening service, we will hold a baptism service.

On Friday evening, July 8th, there is a work night.

On Sunday, July 10th, we are having a Friend Day and BBQ.  There is no evening service that day.

On Sunday, August 7th, our Missionary to China Eddie Ray will be with us at 10am and 11am.

On Sunday, August 21st, we are having another Friend Day and BBQ.  There is no evening service.

Finally, on Sunday, September 18th, we will celebrate our 20th Anniversary.  There are many special things planned for this day which we will announce in the days ahead.

In my sermon Sunday night on “The Last Days,” part of the sermon focused on Paul’s statement to Timothy that the last days would be “perilous” times.  This word means dangerous and furious. We Christians must be very careful as we walk among the lost in this worldly “mine field.”  God help each of us, in these last days, to be faithful to our Lord and to walk wisely among the lost, knowing when to “turn away” (2 Tim.3:5) from them and when to turn unto them (1 Cor.5:9-10).

Pastor’s Pen – March 1, 2010

March 9th, 2011

Spring is coming!  We have now entered March and slowly the snow will give way to flowers!  The beauty and majesty of our Creator’s hand is a constant marvel.

We rejoiced over many good things happening during January and February.  We saw folks saved and three Sundays of baptisms.  Some of our own missionaries visited and gave reports of the Lord’s work among them.  We held our annual church business meeting with the election of our church officers for 2011.  Plans and preparations were made to see how we might glorify God in a greater way this year.

The adult Sunday school hour at 10am each Sunday continues with my study examining Calvinism in light of Scriptural salvation.  I’ve entitled the series: “T.U.L.I.P.: The Toxic Flower in the Garden of Truth.”   On Sunday mornings, my expository sermon series from 1 Peter continues from 1 Peter 5:10-11 with this Sunday’s sermon entitled: “The Sacred Work of Suffering.”  On Wednesday evenings, I am leading an expository teaching series through 1 Kings with our prayer groups following.

In spite of the cold temperatures and snowy weather, we have had three teams distributing John and Romans booklets while our regular men’s and women’s soul winning teams have been busy on follow-ups and discipleships.

This Wednesday, Missionary Pastor Dennis Seely from Cornerstone Baptist Church in Carbonear, Newfoundland will be preaching for us.

Sunday evening’s service will open by observing the Lord’s Supper.

On Sunday evening, March 13th, Deacon David Kapauan will be preaching for us.

The week prior to Easter on April 24th, we will be conducting a church-wide Easter flyer distribution to our community.  On Resurrection Sunday, we are praying to see many souls added to heaven’s roll.

We are looking forward to Evangelist Max Alderman being with us for Revival Meetings on June 3-5.
Cottage prayer meetings will be held as we prepare ourselves for the Spirit’s work in each of our lives and the life of our church.

With the world-wide economic crisis and the global social unrest permeating our media outlets, may these events stir our hearts for righteous living in these last days.  May each of us renew our commitments and rededicate these last days to the sobering work the Saviour has entrusted to us!

Pastor’s Pen – December 5, 2010

February 12th, 2011

On Sunday morning, December 5th, our annual Christmas Cantata was held and it was a God-honouring event with over 40 participants in the choir and play.  With light snow falling and with 242 in attendance, it was a wonderful setting in which to worship the Lord.  The Cantata was entitled “Christmas In Your Heart.”

Our Wednesday evening Bible studies continue each week as I have just started an expository teaching study from 1 Kings.  The study is followed by our prayer groups.

There are regular services on Sundays, December 12th and 19th.

On Friday evening, December 24th, our annual Christmas Eve service will be held at 6pm.  There will be no Wednesday service this week.

On Sunday, December 26th, regular services for Sunday school (10am) and the morning service (11am) will be held but there will be no evening service.

Starting January 2, 2011, we are back to regular services.

On Saturday, January 15th, we are holding our annual church workers banquet at a local restaurant.

May each of us faithfully speak of the unspeakable Gift!
