Pais Honors the ‘Original Pastor’.
1st August 2016
In August 2016, Harry and Henny Letson will be flown, at the expense of Pais, from Manchester, UK to Dallas, USA for an ‘Honor Tour’. The aim is to pay respect to them both as the original Pastors who encouraged and supported the vision of Pais Founder, Paul Gibbs, in 1988. Harry Letson pastored Sharon Church which hosted the first Pais team in 1992. The tour will include time with various Pais teams and staff, a retreat for the Letsons and the occasional speaking event.
Three Pais organizations are contributing to finance the tour; Pais Global, Pais USA and Pais GB.
A Pais spokesman states, “The main aim of tour will be to help the Letsons get a glimpse into the extent of growth that Pais has experienced since its beginnings over 20 years ago”. Harry Letson will share teaching with both Pais apprentices, staff and speak to a church that is the home of The Pais Global team.
Pais creates the ‘Springhut Prize’
9th June 2016
In honor of André Springhut the Founder of The Pais Movement in Germany, a new prize for ‘Game-Changing Entrepreneurship’ will now be awarded by The Pais Movement. A cash prize will be given to members of Pais who create a major or significant step forward for the movement.
Mr Springhut’s biggest achievement in his role has been to work with the government of his nation in order to make Pais apprenticeships a recognized and respected gap year. In May 2016, he was the first person to receive this cash prize for ‘Game-changing Entrepreneurship in Recruitment’. It is estimated that more Germans have joined Pais because of his work than from any other nation.
In the 2016, Mr Springhut handed over the Directorship of Pais in Germany to Jan and Verana Thomsen. He continues to work with Pais in a new role bringing expertise and consultation to the organization.
