Ps Ken Lee, Senior Pastor of Nations Church joins us for the final day of Radiothon 2019! Have a listen to the full conversation between The Breakfast Team and Ps Ken. Ps Ken updates us on what Nations Church has been working on, what he’s hoping for, for our city and why he believes in 98five.
One of the great things that Nations Church has launched this year is a program called Hero’s Academy. It’s a program and a touchpoint for families with additional needs.
Ps Ken’s youngest has additional needs so his family knows first hand that there is a sector of our city that needs community and access to great people and great connections. Hero’s Academy is a day event where the Nations Church team look after these children and their siblings to bless the parents with a day to go on a date or go shopping or whatever they want to do – things that are ordinarily not easy to them.
We partner with so many churches across Perth, and each one is running a different, special program for the community. We all work together, as different parts to connect a community hub.
What need does Ps Ken see in the community?
“The base need of every human still remains. That need is connection. I think with that comes the need to feel valued and significant. As we become more connected digitally, we become more isolated relationally. So what do I think the need is (here in Perth)? People just need to be kind to each other and to care for each other in a real way. To pick up the phone, have coffees, invite each other into our homes. “
If you’re thinking about donating to our Radiothon, Ps Ken has a special message for you.
“People just need to think about the impact of how far their money can go without them actually going there. What 98five does through the airwaves, literally impacts and transforms lives. As we release and give generously, what that money can do way beyond ourselves, is not something we can even measure maybe on this side of eternity.”
