You have been a part of amazing moments in the history of VTI. For all of your investments and partnerships throughout the years, we are ever grateful! We want to update you on the plans that are
being made to realign our ministries with River's Edge Camping
, VTI is not closing
but rather realigning our ministries in partnership with River's Edge
to continue the legacy of both ministries. The current assets and
liabilities will initially be managed by an interim board that will decide on the organizational structure that will best benefit
both ministries and comply with Canada Revenue Agency's requirements.
The Leadership Team of RECA will form the ministry development and
management team to realign VTI's ministries. Second
, the financial and donation side of the ministry continues to operate as VTI for now
All donations, including monthly automatic donations, will be receipted
for tax purposes through the VTI charitable number and systems. As the
ministry is still continuing to operate are trusting the Lord to
continue to move in the hearts of His people to prayerfully sustain the
ministry through their financial investment partnerships. We still need
your support! Third
, Discovery Lodge Retreat & Training Centre is not closing
Though the Calgary office is now closed, Discovery Lodge will continue to host families, schools,
churches and especially mission groups. The RECA Leadership Team will be
seeking to promote and recruit an expanding ministry partnership that
will eventually call the VTI facility their "home" for ministry training
and sending events. Fourth
, River's Edge will become part of us just as we become part of them!
As combined ministries, their programs, ministry events, facilities and
missional opportunities will be available to all of us. We are joining
forces to help River's Edge expand its focus and opportunities. We are
confident that as God continues leading us into this new partnership
that it is not about uniting a parcel of land but of expanding our
collective global impact for generations to come. Lastly
as in the past, we are seeking the Lord's confirmation and blessing in
these decisions. We invite you to continue as a partner in impacting
the world for Christ.
We need to hear from everyone connected with VTI!
Please complete the online response form
- we want to give everyone an opportunity to join with us in creating something unique and engaging for the next generation of ministries hosted at the VTI site.
Yours, on behalf of those we serve,
Brian Rushton, Chairman of the Board
