Growing SMALLer

Growth is not just about getting big; sometimes we need to ‘GROW SMALLER.’ This gripping story Reese & Loane share in their classic book Deep Mentoring illustrates the point well:   “Kent and Mike represent a tag-team pastoral effort in a church that has gone through some remarkable transformation over the past twenty years. By […]

What Transpired in Court: a Blow to Blow Account

The day after my trial I sent a newsletter to all my family, friends and ministry partners around the world who had been praying for righteousness, truth and justice to prevail, giving them a ‘blow to blow’ account of happenings on that eventful day, November 28, 2018. You may read it here. Acquitted! Discharged!! Free!!!

How I Ended Up in Court as an Accused Criminal.

I am Dr. Yaw Perbi (no, not an honorary doctorate), a medical doctor by training, a pastor-missionary by calling and currently president of International Student Ministries Canada, Global CEO of The HuD Group and Catalyst for the Lausanne Movement.

I Stand Trial Today.

“Now I am on trial because of my hope in the fulfillment of God’s promise made to our ancestors.”   ~Paul the Apostle, A.D. 62   Although the official book of the story of God has been ‘closed’ with the canonized 66 books of the Bible, God is still writing his story every day in and […]

  My Unwholly Holy Initial Thoughts, Honest-to-God ‘To build or not to build?’ is more often than not a rather profound, mind-wracking, heart-churning, soul-searching question, be it for a young couple or a growing congregation, a thriving corporation or even an emerging country!

Caught in a Cross-Fire of Love

Posted by on Jan 18, 2018 in Existentialism, Faith, Personal Leadership | One Comment

I seldom share my personal written prayers in public. But as the LORD mercifully answers this one may it be your reality too. Dear Love, So where did I get the idea that I am somehow an originator of love when you are not only the pioneer, picture and perfector of love, you are Love itself; […]

You don’t know You if you don’t know God—and vice versa.

With all due respect, we are fooling ourselves if we think we can know ourselves without knowing God or know God without knowing ourselves. You can’t have one without the other. Here’s why.   “MAN, KNOW THYSELF” We shall not even begin to delve into the convoluted Egyptian and Greek history that tries to explain the […]

A Daniel Dare for the New Year

With another new year comes another fresh challenge of fasting and prayer for 21 days—just like Daniel did.   HARD TO BEAT Make no mistake. Every excuse you may have not to fast and pray, Daniel had same and more. He was super smart, highly intellectual and well-trained—from Alchemy to Zoology (Daniel 1). He aced […]

CONFESSIONS OF THE CALLED (#5): Convocation at the Table of Vocation

  To be a stable entity one needs to get rid of a one-track mind that calling is just one thing and embrace at least four kinds of vocations, just like the legs of a four-legged table.   It was not until my university days that I clearly heard and understood that I had a […]
