Training Healthy Disicples & Missional Leaders

What in the world do Waglers do?

Our family is part of the Mennonite Brethren Mission team. Phil serves on MB Mission's lead team, giving oversight to the mission's training service. He supports the missional development of churches and those called to long-term mission work around the world. We also seek to live on mission every day where we reside in wonderfully multi-cultural Surrey, BC.

Word Focus...

Let my teaching fall like rain
and my words descend like dew,
like showers on new grass,
like abundant rain on tender plants.

Deuteronomy 32:2

These words have challenged me lately and capture how I hope to approach the Christ-centered and Spirit-led development of the global workers we serve. How are your words watering new life?

FOCUS Snapshot

FOCUS is the banner name of MB Mission's training of long-term missionaries. We seek to invest in these leaders both as they prepare for their assignment and serve life-long in the countries to which God has called them.

Here are a few snapshots of who we are privileged to work with in this season...

Food for Thought...

Recently I had the opportunity to preach in Lendrum MB in Edmonton. Follow the link if you would like to listen in:

Here's a link to a devotional written some time ago for Promise Keepers:

Prayer Partnership...

* For my trip to Panama May 28-June 5 to visit and teach at a discipleship training school followed by meetings with leaders from the International Community of Mennonite Brethren. We are seeking God's wisdom and the Spirit's leading as we discern how to partner in training leaders together. The photo (right) is one of the leaders at the discipleship training school I will be visiting. Please pray for Jen and the children in my absence; these trips tend to bring out the best in the enemy's attempts to discourage.

* For the Spirit's direction as we speak at Barnabas Family Camp in July and seek to call families to a life of mission.

* For our family's involvement with Syrian families in Surrey. Jen is joining a group of women hosting a baby shower for a Muslim family in June.

* For wisdom in understanding God's best for the many directions the Training Team I lead can go and for my Training teammates: Greg Ouellette, Connie Peters, and Bud Webb.

Financial Partnership...

You can partner in the work of MB Mission through...

* The Wagler project (, which helps us meet our yearly fundraising goals and ministry expenses.

* The FOCUS Support and Resourcing project (, which increases our capacity to equip new and growing leaders around the world.


We value and need your friendship, prayers, and financial partnership to serve the development of multiplying healthy disciples and missional leaders. Thank you so much for being part of the team!
