LEADERSHIP RETREAT: NORTH CAROLINA OBX LIVE

Paul Labelle

ALL IN AMBASSADOR: PAUL LABELLE

After 33 years of perfecting my craft as an educator, oddly it’s now I begin a true walk with Jesus Christ. On October 24, 2021 while attending a Vince Miller Retreat, I was baptized in the frigid waters of Cross Lake in central Minnesota. God nudged me to sign up for this retreat but I had no idea what to expect. I was a wet-behind-the-ears Christian and I had no plans to be baptized that weekend, especially in 30 degree weather. Though the story about that baptism is a good one, it was the result of that weekend that has forever changed me. Yes, it was here that I dedicated my life to Christ but I also realized the importance of strong Christian interpersonal relationships.

What I didn’t realize until my retreat was how vital Christian relationships were for maintaining a solid spiritual journey. I guess I somehow missed that when I read Psalms 133:1  Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!  Or Proverbs 27 :17 Iron sharpens iron and one man sharpens another. or even Hebrews 10:24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.

This new understanding of community showed me how important it is to surround yourself with like-minded Christian people. The men I associate myself with believe what I believe and an inner circle of those friends serves as accountable brothers. I can go to them, to stay in check without judgment and do the same for them.  This is an invaluable brother and sisterhood of support and reassurance I had never experienced before and could not live ever again without.

I owe everything to our savior and every day I try to make my actions and words glorify God. I am always on the lookout to foster new Christian relationships.  I have a Christian brother that told me when he speaks with a  new person he throws Christ into  the conversation just to see where it leads. I love that because you soon know how your time is going to be spent glorifying God or perhaps evangelizing. Either way, Christ has to be in the conversation.

    Awesome! Lie #2 was hard for me. I wrapped identity and provision together. Glad to see you are much wiser than I was at your age.

    Way to go Austin! To me, a real man is one that seeks God and His ways first over his own and seeks to grow each day. That’s what I see you doing, way to go bro’ !!!

    Thanks for sharing RV! We’re all glad you are here and able to attend online when you can. You are right, we need to find other Christian men to help hold us accountable and help us to be better men. Keep coming back brother!

    Hi guys! I just found out that the Ambassador section existed and I heard I may next man up! What a great platform Vince has built for us all. I don’t do facebook or social media in general so I may not be commenting as much as others but it’s always great to say hi Monday mornings and hopefully get connected with other Brothers in Christ. I need help in my prayer life as maybe it’s satan preventing me from actually praying for everyone I know and don’t know that need prayer. I always feel like others are praying for them and mine won’t make a difference. I need God to get my mind right on that. It bugs me when I look in the mirror and have heard that I am an answer to others prayers in my coming to Christ. I get tons of people from Church saying they’ve been praying for me for years. I need to put that effort forth for others as alot of the Bible miracles are surrounded by problems and prayer.

    Glad to hear another man willing to enter the battle to inspire and equip men. The only means of turning this world around is turning men around.

  13. Dennis James says:

    Leo, thank you for sharing. Go is really moving in your life and in the life of the other men who are in these mentoring sessions. Warrior On !

  14. Dennis James says:

    Hey Will, thanks for sharing your story! Praying that God bless you and your family beyond expectations.

  15. Cory B says:

    Thanks for sharing your story so candidly. I think we can all relate to being broken and seeking forgiveness and redemption. I’m glad to see you and your family were able to overcome. Thank you for all you’ve done to help Vince do what he does!

  16. Sam Blower says:

    Thanks Cory for your very honest and personal sharing, it really hits home for me this morning. Two years ago I contracted Polymyalgia Rheumatica, a very painful illness. I do not like taking drugs, so instead turned to alcohol to lessen the pain. Now, I am almost over the PMR illness, but the alcohol has a strong grip on me. I have quit drinking so many times, but yesterday fell back once again. I am a closet alcoholic trying to keep it a secret, but my wife is noticing more and more. I am trying to get an accountability partner, but have yet to find the right person. Your testimony gives me new hope, thank you!

      I appreciate that Sam. I wish I had an easy answer, but nothing is easy with any addiction. I wasn’t in the closet about drinking as much as I was in the closet about how much. It usually takes an absolute rock bottom to seek help. I hope you never see one. All I can say is get it out there. Not talking about it simply drives the problem down further which just makes the shame worse and then we have one more reason to drink. Like we need one. 😉
      A lot of the AA meetings have gone to zoom so you can check those out basically anonymously to see if it’s an option. Stepping up and letting people know like you just did is a good start! Keep it up and let me know what I could do to help.

    Thank you to both Pat and Michael! Both very inspirational. I’d hate to be the guy following you two up!

  18. Eric Bryhn says:

    There’s a lot of life wisdom shared from you guys that has helped me out in various ways. I’m challenged and also motivated deep down to be a better man – simply by reading and relating to your journeys. Thank you men for sharing and know it’s connecting with others thru relatable situations. Something to think about as you post…there’s a good chance your influencing men whom you might never meet in your lifetime! Wow, what an impact you can make huh?

    Thanks for sharing your story Pat. It’s an all to familiar theme that I’ve heard too may times. Thanks be to our Father for never giving up on us and providing a way out. Every set back is a set up for something better.

    I look forward to talking with other men being led by God. Iron sharpens iron as it says in Proverbs. We should do an Ambassador virtual meeting.

    There is evidently a lot to identify about this. I consider you made some good points in features also.

  22. Gregory Kuhn says:

    Hey Vince. Great new web page and a chance for all guys who are All In to connect and share. Our group just went through Called to Act and it was such an incredible series. Each lesson built on each other and allowed you to really dive in. It brought our group closer together and really allowed each of us to get more involved in each others lives. While we were not able to go All In as COVID prevents us from getting together, it did allow the building blocks for when we can. We were also blessed with a ZOOM visit by Vince in our last week. Question has anyone used the Ephesians or currently using the new James series in their groups? Would love to have any questions or discussions that you have used in these series. Personally, I am starting the 20 Lessons to Build a Man’s Fitness tomorrow. Be blessed. Gregory Kuhn, Victoria, BC, Canada ([email protected]) – yep retired Royal Canadian Navy!

    Happy New Year! I’m grateful for this chance to be an ambassador. Quick question… is there a way to get a listing of the other ambassadors (so we can connect as we continue going All In)?

    this is indeed a great job of putting all the relevant shareables in one spot! I’m looking forward to giving men what resources they need to grow their relationships with God and others. I too, am exited to continue along my journey with the Lord and others! Happy 2021!
