Anna Smith, Secretary Anna.Smith@ADPR.faith

I find it a wonderful sense of purpose in how the Lord orchestrates our lives to be in service to Him and others. As a trained pianist I have joyfully served as main church pianist over twenty years [for different churches], keyboardist in praise bands and instructor of piano for our business. Alongside my husband, our 30 years of ministry service has taken us throughout the United States, Canada, and Israel where again, the gift of music has been my primary service. Our four children have naturally been our greatest joy and I now get the pleasure of grandchildren! Our daughters married military and our son serves. We pray for them and all our armed service personnel. It has been my pleasure to serve in the capacity as Secretary for two non-for-profit organizations: Play It Forward and St Augustine Youth Orchestra. Each focused on youth development as musicians. As secretary I was responsible for quarterly board meeting notes, annual meeting notes and maintaining accurate filing system. These roles helped develop my skills to naturally serve in the position as ADPR secretary.

Advisory Staff

Rev. Canon Daryl Fenton

Director, CMJ-USA

Contact: daryl.fenton@cmj-usa.org

Daryl, a graduate of Wheaton College and Trinity School for Ministry, assumed his duties as CMJ USA National Director in July 2011, joining the faithful CMJ workers who for over 200 years have advanced the Kingdom among Jewish people.  In accepting the call, Canon Fenton stated, 'Sharing the transforming love of Jesus with Jewish people is work to which the Lord first called me 30 years ago.'

Before joining CMJ, Canon Fenton served the Archbishop of the ACNA in many capacities.  One special mission was assisting victims of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Hurricane Katrina was an extremely destructive and deadly Category 5 hurricane that caused catastrophic damage along the Gulf coast from central Florida to Texas, much of it due to the storm surge and levee failure.

Total fatalities rose to 1,833 with an estimated $125 billion in damage, tied as the most destructive hurricane on record. Wikipedia  We are pleased to have Daryl as an advisor adding his depth of knowledge and zeal as he shares his love of Christ. 

Rev. Greg Miller

Director, Church Army- USA

Contact: gregmiller@churcharmyusa.org

I served as a parish Rector for 25 years.”  When Superstorm Sandy hit New Jersey in October 2012, Greg’s church rose to the call and with ARDF funding were able to help many in New Jersey.

Greg adds, “During most of that time I had never heard of Church Army USA. When I did, I was hooked. Church Army's ministry is to equip the church so that it will be more effective in evangelizing; to reach the least, the last, and the lost with the gospel of Christ and bring them into the fellowship and ministry of the church.

Lives are being changed as many are saved by the work that the Lord is doing through Church Army all across America, and around the world utilizing many different styles of evangelism.

We engage in this work because the Lord has reminded us that whatever we do unto the least of His brethren we do unto him. Likewise, whatever we do not do for the least of his brethren we do not do to Him. I invite you to partner with us in this work as we seek to reach a lost and hurting world with the redeeming work of Jesus Christ.”

Greg and His team were some of the first to respond to the call when Hurricane Irma ravaged the Florida Peninsula in September 2017.  His team drove to Jacksonville from Pittsburg to assess the damage and offer their assistance.  Greg has offered a wealth of knowledge, understanding and encouragement.  He is a valued part of our team.

Hurricane Chris Update - Final

At a Glance:
  • Chris became the second hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season in early July.
  • This second hurricane of the season came much earlier than average, by over a month.
  • Chris generated high surf and rip currents along much of the U.S. East Coast.
  • Parts of Atlantic Canada took a final brush from Chris as it became a post-tropical cyclone.

We will continue to monitor Hurricane Chris.

Should we see a significant change or determine that both lives and livelihood may be threatened to our northnern neighbors, ADPR will keep you informed and rally the necessary resources and mission teams.

Weather Channel

Hurricane Beryl downgraded to Tropical Storm says The Weather Channel…

“Given barely enough ocean heat content (sea-surface temperatures around 80 degrees Fahrenheit), low wind shear, and its location south of a plume of sinking, dry air known as the Saharan air layer, Beryl intensified quickly from a tropical depression at 11 a.m. EDT Thursday to a Category 1 hurricane just 18 hours later.

According to the National Hurricane Center (NHC), wind shear has increased and combined with a very dry environment likely causing Beryl to weaken.”
