Jesus is Lord!

What is a Christian Ashram? The Christian Ashram is one of several movements that has arisen out of a desire to put the power of the early church back into our modern day fellowship. Literally translated the word "Ashram" means "Retreat from hard work" - a time to engage in Christ-centered activities and meditation. All Christian Ashrams are interdenominational and interracial. Titles and other symbols of distinction are set aside that we may worship as true brothers and sisters in Christ under the ministry of an evangelist, Bible study leader, and music team.

What can you expect?
a time of sharing and growth within a Christian Community
inspiring messages
enriching Bible teaching
faith stories of changed lives
great singing and worship
small group sharing and prayer

Where is it being held? Beulah Camp is a wonderful church run camp facility on the beautiful Long Reach of the St. John river about one half hour from the city of Saint John. There is plenty of on-site accommodation available and we will also welcome day visitors.

the Rev. Dr. Brad Little

Brother Brad was glad to be raised as a farm boy in Harvey Station, New Brunswick, where he sensed the Lord's call on his life. He studied at UNB, Gordon-Conwell, and Fuller and has spent most of his life in pastoral ministry in Fredericton as minister of the United Church and then, Congregational Christian Churches in Canada. For the past decade, he has been Counselling Therapist in his private practice, the Center for Better Choices. He begins a new phase of life in July when he and his wife of 33 years, Margie, move to her home community of Brookfield, Nova Scotia. Here, he hopes to devote his time to prayer, study, writing, and speaking, largely in the area of Christian spiritual formation. He and Margie have one daughter, Emily, who lives with her husband, Joel, in Manitoba. God is good; Jesus is Lord!

Bible Teacher:
Rod Anderson

Rod lives in Quispamsis, New Brunswick, with June, his wife of 31 years. They have 2 married children and one granddaughter, Elianna. He has worked in the insurance industry for 26 years. Rod grew up in broken home with an alcoholic father who died when he was 9. At 22 , Easter Sunday 1981, he heard the message of the resurrection with his heart and responded to Gods invitation to have his sins forgiven. He immediately headed to Bible College where he earned an Associates in Theology. Today, with a conviction of the goodness of God and the power of prayer, Rod comes to share the invitation God extends to His church to see His kingdom come.
