In December a supporter needed to lower their support by $1,000 per month. We are in need of raising an additional $1,800 per month, as we carry on His work.


God's confirmation of where we belong in the next season; France or America

From His Word


Jeremiah 29:7


"Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper."


Makes me think of a recent conversation I had around this quote:
"People of Faith and people of Good Will coming together to seek the Shalom of the city."

Hi!   Following is an interview that Christian Associates just did with me for our Inside CA newsletter.  I thought you may like to see it.


Recruiting Update: Interview with Teal Rapp 


CA:  You moved from Aix to Denver.  How is the family transition going?

TR: It's hard, but it's good.  There certainly is no shortage of life to process.  After 5 years in France, life in the states is quite a change.  But as time goes on, we are finding more and more things here to love!

CA: Do we see an increased number of people interested in joining CA?
TR: It has now been one year since I began tracking the CA Staff Candidate Database in SalesForce and we have grown that database from 40 to 253 candidates - that's 533% growth.  We have entered 339 candidates into SalesForce and of these 253 are current candidates.  The remaining candidates have either joined CA or we are no longer pursuing each other.  God is moving, and regardless of the economy or any other factors, He continues to bring people toward CA!

CA: Where are all of these new prospects coming from?
TR: 70% of our leads this year have come from CA staff referrals!  Thank you!!  8% have come from non-staff referrals and 12% from our website. It's working! From operations right through to you, our staff in the field - we are all making CA an organization that you want to bring people into! And with your encouragement, they are finding their way here, through our website, through many advocates of CA, and most importantly through you!

CA: How else can the CA staff help your recruiting efforts?
TR: Our "Intro to CA" Skypes are now led by myself and either a Leadership or Operations Team leader, so that our candidates encounter apostolic voices in CA from the start. Please keep inviting people in your current communities and in your prayer and financial support circles to hear more about CA, introduce them to me and let me help Shepherd God's people toward their Calling.

CA: What is your commitment to staff who refer a friend to you?
TR: We will handle with care!  We try to efficiently and effectively move your friends through our process to help them discern their calling.  We will have an "Intro to CA" Skype for them to join within 2 weeks.  I get to know their story and desires.  After this, if they would like to move forward, they will receive a CA Personal Profile and, if it makes sense, we will connect them with someone in their local or future desired context to hear another voice of CA - typically a Regional Leader or Team Leader.  As we walk people though the supplemental application process, the last step is to attend an Engage Assessment week.  The goal of this process is to help your friends take one small step at a time, as they lean into seeking God's will for their lives.

Here are a couple of the recent additions to our Christian Associates staff!

Paul and Karen Haenze have lived in Poland for the last 14 yrs where they have been serving as missionaries.  They bring so much wisdom and maturity from years of ministry which will be a blessing to us in this region.  They speak fluent Polish and have a vision to stimulate a national churchplanting movement in Poland.


John Newton hails from Dallas, TX where he is an alumni of Dallas Theological Seminary.  He has a former career as a broadcast journalist, which gives him that strong and steady news anchor feel.  John is fundraising and hopes to find placement on a team in Scotland where he would fit right in among the churches, pubs and bookstores.

My role is to support all of our teams around the world with high quality ministers of the Gospel devoted to following Christ. To that end, I will give you a glance of CA around the world with each update.


If you know anyone interested in moving to France, please let me know.  Yes, that's right, I have not found anyone willing to move to the "glorious" South of France in over a year now!
