Recalibrating with EFCA Past and Future
By Dave Linde
EFCA One, the biennial national conference, was
very meaningful to me this year. Not that other national conferences haven’t been, but there was something extra special about this year’s. The presidential transition, of course, was historic, and the training sessions that I attended were excellent. But the plenary-session speakers were particularly challenging to heart and ministry.
Bill Hamel’s final address, coupled with Kevin Kompelien’s vision as the new president, are a good way to recalibrate your alignment with EFCA mission and vision. I’m grateful for Bill and his legacy and I’m pleased with Kevin’s election. Among other things, he will bring to the table a cross-cultural sensitivity that will help us with the changing face of American culture.
