Looking in from the outside

We welcome Rick Scruggs to the Lifeline family!  He has joined our Lifeline-Canada team as Vice President of Leadership Development to serve alongside Andy Sims, our Vice President of Leadership Development on our Lifeline-USA team.  Together, they work with you to invest in our local pastors/leaders.  Rick will also direct church plant initiatives in Canada and connect Canadian leaders and churches to Lifeline's ministries.

Looking in from the outside:

leading leaders in Honduras & Cuba

by Rick Scruggs, Vice President of Leadership Development, Lifeline Christian Mission Canada

Some of them are house church leaders, some are teachers, others are Pastors and worship leaders, and still others are interpreters, work in government offices or retail and commercial enterprise but what they all have in common is a passionate love for Jesus and a desire to improve their knowledge and skills, for the purpose of providing leadership for His body!  These are just some of the women and men that I've had the privilege of meeting during recent Lifeline trips to Honduras and Cuba.

Many of them work in conditions that we in North America would consider far from optimum and they do so with scant resources but their enthusiasm and optimism and dependence on God's leading is an inspiration to all we who visit.


Cuban leader 

I've also observed and appreciated the mutual respect that exists between the local church leaders and Lifeline's US staff. Ideas and suggestions are exchanged and discussed openly, encouragement is generously offered, local customs and challenges are acknowledged, and different opinions are welcomed.  Moving God's Kingdom forward is always at the front of everyone's agenda.

The health and growth of the church in places like Honduras and Cuba, similar to anywhere else in the world, is largely dependant upon the calibre and faithfulness of its leaders.  For that reason, I am very optimistic about the church in Central America and very excited about working with Lifeline in leadership development.


You can invest in our local leaders, pastors and churches in Haiti and around the world:

 Business leaders and church leaders (staff and elders) can personally invest in our pastors and church leaders through a leadership seminar trip to Cuba, El Salvador, Haiti, and Honduras. 

Grow.  Strengthen pastors and leaders and grow new pastors and leaders by investing in Sending & Equipping Centers in Central America and the Caribbean.

Sponsor. Walk alongside a church in Cuba, Honduras, El Salvador, or Panama.

Pray.  Intentionally lift up the pastors, church leaders, and communities in your prayers.
