2022 is rapidly coming to a close. We are so grateful for another year of ministry. It has been incredibly encouraging to see how God has continued to provide for WGA’s needs. Would you join us as we celebrate what God has done in 2022?
- WGA’s Thursday Night Group: We’ve continued to be grateful that we have Zoom to use as a tool to connect with people. The pandemic forced us to get more familiar with technology such as Zoom. We didn’t expect it to work as well as it does for our purposes. We have adopted an alternating schedule, where we meet in-person twice each month and on Zoom twice as well. We had a total of 46 Thursday Night Meetings, 24 In-person (with an option to watch the presentation via Zoom) and 22 Virtually. Let us know if you’d like to visit our group some time. Distance is no longer the barrier it once was. We’ve regularly been having participants from 9 states other than Colorado!
- Speaking: We were out and about in the community with over 20 different speaking engagements, including a number of churches and a few ministries around town. We have quite a few topics that have proven beneficial to leaders as they work to better understand sexuality, gender, and relationships. Let us know if you’d like us to come to your church of organization.
- New Staff: This year, we hire two new people for our staff. Bruce Sanderlin began working as an admin assistant in January, picking up quite a few of the tasks that our former Office Manager Nancy did. We also hired Greg Navitsky as part of our program staff. He also serves as a youth pastor in a local church and is a gifted speaker. Please pray for us as we consider where God is leading WGA with regards to working with young people.
- Financial Update: As always, we are grateful for God’s provision for WGA over these past 36 years of ministry. We are also thankful to you for joining us, through your prayers and donations. Many have experienced financial hardship this year. As of the end of October, WGA’s giving for 2022 has been a little less than it was at this time for the past several years. Would you pray about how you can support this ministry as we close out this year and prepare for 2023? December is traditionally the month that brings in the most donations, which often carry us into the new year when giving tends to taper off a bit. You can make a donation by clicking here.
Lots more has been going on, despite all the challenges of living in a pandemic. We continue to post a new blog each week on our website, meet with individuals in-person and on Zoom, and offer short-term focus groups. We are available to you if need a listening ear or would like to put us in touch with someone you know who is struggling. Please give us a call or send an email.
We at WGA will continue to do the work God sets before us. How will you join with us?
