• Executive Leadership Changes Coming

    Date: 2015.12.26 | Category: Leadership | Response: 0

    The reality of the approaching winter season (and it will arrive!) is spoken of, so well, in Isaiah 40:8: “The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever.” What an amazing verse of promise and assurance! No matter what we go through here at Fair Havens, whether it be: a co-worker’s battle with cancer; the leaving of two of our fulltime staff; a concerning hydro issue; or even, financial difficulties… just to name a few – “the word of our God stands forever.”

    We, at Fair Havens, choose to embrace God’s promises of Peace, Hope, Provision and Blessing. For we know that “God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all that we could ask or think.” Ephesians 3:20. We continue to see God’s hand guiding our Team through many, diverse challenges. They have caused us to come together in prayer; to seek God’s wisdom for each day; and to rely on His amazing promises and provision.

    As many of you may know, James Herzog, our current Executive Director, has given the AGC Board his resignation, effective January 2016, for family reasons. We wish to thank him for all of his support and guidance over the past two years. With this being said, the AGC Executive Board along with the AGC President, Dr. Bill Fietje, have unanimously appointed Liz Thompson, our Director of Operations, as the Interim Executive Director. At the AGC National Board meeting in February 2016, Liz will be named the next Executive Director of Fair Havens.

    Our Fair Havens team is blessed to be a part of this wonderful ministry focused on ‘Life changing experiences to the Glory of God.’

    Our prayer for each and every one is that God will continue to bless and strengthen us as we reflect on life’s changes and challenges and marvel at His promises & provisions.

    Happy 2016 – our 75th Anniversary year!

    Blessings in Him,
    Your Fair Havens Leadership Team
    Liz Thompson, Gord Hiscox, Benita Lothian, Lynda Watkins, Julie Leis, Brian MacTavish, Stan Coates

  • 2012 – Anticipating GREAT things at Fair Havens!

    Date: 2012.02.14 | Category: Uncategorized | Response: 0

    Our 2012 Year has launched at Fair Havens and we are ready to go.  Our brochures are in the mail and so you might be receiving them in the next week or so.  If you don’t get one – please call and ask us to send you one or more so you can share :).

    Our Capital Project List has been compiled for 2012.  Please see sidebard – capital projects for details.

    We are trusting for $256,000 in donations this year to support our 2012 Capital Budget, some ministry program expenses and family sponsorships.  Your consideration of joining us once again in financial partnership is greatly appreciated.  Your gifts are instrumental in the live changing experiences that happen at Fair Havens!

    We are also targeting to raise another $50,000 in support of our Maintenance Compound Re-Development Project that was started last year.  Land has been cleared and we are beginning to re-organize the existing buildings and drafting up the plans for the new drive shed and service bays.

    Looking forward to seeing you at Fair Havens this year!  Be sure to check out our website (www.fairhavens.org) for all the details on our 2012 Program Schedule!
