When: Thursday, September 21, 2017 — 7:00 pm

Refuel

Spring 2016

ReFuelReFuel = a special blend of district fellowship, teaching, vision, prayer and encouragement for church pastors, leaders, and workers!

Why on earth would anyone push a car instead of drive it? Oh yes, people have to push cars when they run out of gas. That’s why one of the earliest lessons drivers learn is to watch the gas gauge and stop for gas before running out.

Many pastors, leaders and workers can testify about feeling like they are pushing their ministry instead of driving at times. Again, the difference is fuel — spiritual fuel. God did not design us to go far in ministry without spiritual refueling.

Don’t run your ministry on fumes!

    Jim & Peggy Eby

    Prior to founding Mission Catalyst, Pastor Eby served as Bishop of the New Horizons Conference (IPHC), giving oversight to more than 100 churches and 300 ministers in the southern USA.

    Jim has a passion to get the Gospel to the two billion people and 7,000 unreached people groups who have yet to hear the message of Jesus Christ for even the first time and to see men and women in leadership around the world released into the fullness of God’s plan for their lives. He spent several years in London, England, serving as the Executive Director of the Centre for International Christian Ministries which trained church leaders from Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Pastor Eby has an earned Master’s Degree in Church Growth and Revitalization from Southwestern Christian University. Eby has traveled in more than 50 countries preaching and teaching the message of Christ and helping to train leaders. Pastor Eby has also served as an Associate Trainer for John Maxwell’s EQUIP organization.

    Married for more than 40 years, Jim and his wife Peggy have three married children and thirteen grand-children. They reside in Conroe, TX (a suburb of Houston) from where they operate Mission Catalyst International. In addition to their ministry in missions, the Ebys also do leadership training seminars, women’s conferences and marriage retreats. Both Jim & Peggy are excellent preachers and teachers and are in wide demand for speaking engagements around the world. Jim’s book World Impacting Churches (10 Essential Characteristics for Changing the World & Finishing The Great Commission) has drawn rave reviews from pastors and ministry leaders around the world. It is now published in six languages.

    Bob Ely

    Bob was born and raised in Anadarko, OK. Edith was born and raised in Norman, OK. Both came from divorced (broken) families. Bob was raised Nazarene and Edith Pentecostal. They met at the 1st Pentecostal Holiness Church in Norman, OK, where Edith was attending and Bob was saved, sanctified, baptized with the Holy Spirit and called to preach. They were married in that church on March 27, 1965. Edith worked as a medical transcriptionist/secretary so Bob could finish college. He attended the University of Oklahoma for two years, graduating from Southwestern College (now Southwestern Christian University) with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Religion in 1967.

    Out of their union two children, Steve and Stephanie and five grandchildren, Jessica, Talmadge, Jennifer, Devin and Jayden were born. Edith has faithfully supported Bob in all ministry endeavors for more than 44 years, especially in administrative/secretarial work and in her own singing ministry. In March 2014, they will celebrate 49 years of marriage and ministry together.

    Bob brings wealth of ministry experience to the table. He has effectively ministered on local and national levels. He pastored two churches (University PH in Norman, Ok and First PH in Apache, OK). He has served as Conference Church Education Ministries Director (Pioneered the CEM Dept. in the West Oklahoma Conference), and Conference Superintendent (elected at 28 years of age, Bob served 12 years as Superintendent of West OK Conference). On the national level he has served on several denominational boards, including the General Board of Administration, the General Executive Board, Church Institutions Board, Evangelism USA Board, General Retirement Board (where he helped restructure the denominational program), several task force study committees, and President of the National Association of Pentecostal Holiness Evangelists. He was President of Southwestern Christian University for eleven years. He has also traveled extensively as a full-time evangelist.

SCU Feast of Ingathering

Southwestern Christian UniversityLet's support our university!

Southwestern Christian University is our university. As one of the premier IPHC institutions, SCU has been training students for ministry and many other careers for many years. SCU is a tremendous Christian liberal arts college training students to serve with integriy and deep-rooted spirituality in a variety of career fields. To determine how deep the relationship between SCU, the Heartland Conference and the IPHC is, you only have to attend one of our churches to bump into someone who has attended/graduated from there. Historically, many of our pastors come from these hallowed halls of learning and preparation.
