A Fathers Day Message From Nicholas Marks CEO - aifc

Dear staff, students and friends of aifc,

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and yours a special Fathers Day.  Whatever this day means or looks like for you whether its with (or the memory of) your earthly Dad or the men who have had a significant spiritual fathering role in your life – or both.

Fatherhood is a great privilege, responsibility and joy.

In modern times there has never been a greater need for the ‘hearts of the fathers to be turned to the hearts of the children’ as we read in the last chapter of the last book of the Bible, Malachi.

It is not often spoken of that many of the ills we see in society now are the result of fatherlessness.
A Fathers impact on his children and those around him is profound – one way or another. God designed it this way.

As the need is great we continue to pray and live intentionally so that Biblical manhood and Godly masculinity can be rediscovered in our Churches and in society.

The challenge has been underscored again this week with a decision made by a regulatory body with Free TV Australia blocking the latest Fathers Day advertisement from Dads4Kids deeming it ‘a political statement’

Without commenting in detail on this I will let you discern it. I found it to be a simple and delightful ad and would encourage you to view it and share it within your own networks.

Have a wonderful Fathers Day !

Nicholas Marks
aifc, CEO
