RENEWED Ministries Update

RENEWED Ministries Update – 24 February

This is the RENEWED Ministries update for 24 February 2021 as provided by Reverend Courtney Richards.

Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth.

Below is a VERY IMPORTANT letter from Dr Dennis Engbrecht Co-Chairman, RENEWED Ministries.

February 2021

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

I remember the moment so clearly. Courtney Richards was serving at Bethel College as Associate Dean of Students. At the same time, he was working on a doctorate. We were sitting in my office when he shared with me that his pursuit of a Psy.D in psychology/counselling was misguided. God was calling him to establish a ministry focused on mentoring young disciples in Christ. That moment proved to be the conception of RENEWED Ministries. Shortly thereafter, upon Courtney’s return to Jamaica, the birth of this ministry took place.

Now we are celebrating twenty-five years of remarkable ministry that has spread globally and is still growing. On September 9, 2021, we are planning to celebrate the 25th anniversary of RENEWED Ministries at Bethel University where the Lord initially placed a passion for a ministry of mentoring and discipleship training in Courtney’s heart. Details of this celebration are still in the planning stages. As a vital partner or beneficiary of this ministry, you will be invited to join in celebrating twenty-five years of God’s blessing on Courtney’s ministry. If you are in the islands of the Caribbean, you will plan your own celebrations on each island where RENEWED Ministries and Courtney has significant ministry.

In this midst of a global pandemic, RENEWED Ministries needs your support to assist in expanding its ministry. You can do this in two ways. First, we need your prayer support. This is vital to the work of the Lord! Second, we need your financial support. This can be done by making a one-time gift to RENEWED Ministries or through monthly support. We are asking you to commit to a designated number of shares, US$25 each, which will greatly enhance our ministry and Courtney’s support. We encourage you to give personal gifts to Courtney as well for his years of commitment and service to God and to each of us.

Gifts to RENEWED Ministries can be sent by check/cheque to: RENEWED Ministries, P.O. Box 1229, Mishawaka, Indiana, USA 46546 or via PayPal on our website www.renewed-ministries.org (the website option is being refurbished at the moment). Thanks much for your kind consideration and commitment to the mission and vision of RENEWED Ministries.

May the Lord bless you richly with His grace and favour,

Dennis D. Engbrecht, PhD
Vice-Chairman of the Board
RENEWED Ministries
