These are just a few recent testimonies from international leaders Pinnacle is engaged in ministry with today:
From Eric Johnson, missionary to Monterrey, Mexico:
“…You guys are an inspiration to me and I so appreciate your ministry, especially all you’ve done with the Retool Kit. Our Cosecha [“Harvest”, the name he has given the Retool process in Mexico] pastors here have said things repeatedly like “Cosecha came at JUST the right time for us”, and “Cosecha is JUST what we were needing”, and “We haven’t seen anything else like Cosecha anywhere”.
From Makoto Fukui, Pastor and a key leader of the Rengo movement of 66 churches in Japan:
“I would like to say our profound thanks to your faithful preparation and work in the morning…Both Pastor Arakawa and Kishio said it was very satisfied to attend this training. They were so encouraged and I think the other member who watch the record [Webex recording of a four hour session] have same impression later, too. [I give] the highest praise for the Retool program. I think it is true and also other members, too. I thanks that this program makes me clear the image of pastor as an educator and not a commander…”
From Pastor Joe Ascalon, Pastor of Ikthus Church, Bacolod, and mobilization leader in the Philippines using The Retool Kit Pathway:
“…we just concluded our Ikthus Annual Bootcamp. This is the second year and we are getting more and more pastors and leaders interested. We limited the attendance to only 60 participants due to budget constrain. The attendees were the following: Ikthus Cagayan, Ikthus Iligan, Ikthus Iloilo, Ikthus Cebu and Dumaguete..( they are taking level 2 ); the new ones were Cebu- Banilad ( church inside the Bible school ) and Pathway Fellowship – 3 year old church in Cebu. I have to turn down 40 from Bohol.. and a few from Manila. The reason is because of the workshops in which we take the time for them to work on and go home with an output. We are continually communicating to them that this is not the usual conference where all they get is information. I won’t let them leave until we see some concrete decisions made as to what changes they need to do with their churches. They all came with their leaders and so half of the problem is already done.”
