‘We have each received gifts which are to be used in serving others’ … 1 Peter 4:10
Serving as a NACAR board member these past several years has been a gift and a growing and learning experience for me personally. This scripture passage from 1 Peter sums up both the role and expectations of NACAR board members.
Our NACAR serving board members are from across North America, sisters, associates and a clergy member who bring their gifts for the continuing growth of NACAR. I personally have grown and been enriched by all the members both past & present. At this time, I am the only Canadian member on the board and would hope that other Canadians might consider offering their gifts to serve on NACAR. Should you wish to consider, we do have a form on our website. I have also found that our greatest strengths as a board seems to arise from our diversity, such as age and geography.
We will be celebrating our 20th Anniversary in 2016 and this will certainly be a joyous milestone for all members of NACAR. I would also ask that you hold NACAR in your thoughts and prayers as we continue to grow in our outreach of service with others.
