Mindful by Paul Boeker, Editor

Tis issue begins my second year as editor of Fellowship Focus. It has been a joy to work with correspondents and contributors to get their messages to you, the reader. Up to this point, most issues have been 16 pages. It has oſten been difficult to fit

all the material on hand into 16 pages. But beginning with the May/June issue, the Focus will be 24 pages. Tis will give us an opportunity to include more features. Already in this issue you will find a new column “Flourishing Families” inside the back cover. Dave McVety, a member of Grace Evangelical Bible Church in Abbotsford, and a writer and presenter for Doing Families Right, has agreed to write this column. I have been delighted this past year to hear from so many

churches about their strategies for discipleship, outreach, strengthening families, and building leadership. I hope you read what Community Bible Church of Omaha is doing to evaluate their over-all ministries (see page 12). We hope to fea- ture more “Intentional Churches” reports in succeeding issues. How can you help with our transition to 24 pages? Let us

know what you would like to see in the Focus. What would be of value to our churches? Feel free to write letters to the editor to comment on various articles. Submit articles on ministries your church has found effective in bringing people to maturity in Christ. Write up what your youth group accomplished on their mission work team. With your help, the Fellowship Focus will continue to inform, inspire and unite our Fellowship.
