The Gospel Everywhere!

“Good evening and welcome to the Gospel Everywhere Worship Experience!” During the month of January, Wednesday nights became electrified with music and the preached word.  South Central Conference Personal and Publishing ministries collaborated on this effort to inspire individuals to share their testimony.  The experience was shared live on Facebook and the internet, doing what the title said the gospel everywhere.  The host of the program, Pastor Griffin remarked, “The Gospel is not an idea, the Gospel is Jesus Himself! We have been gifted an opportunity to share HIM wherever we go! It is my hope that each person will be inspired to take The Gospel Everywhere.” The preaching ministry of Nelson Stokes, pastor of Hillcrest Seventh-day Adventist Church, Furman Fordham, pastor of Riverside Chapel Seventh-day Adventist Church and Benjamin Jones, Jr., president of South Central Conference were featured.  The Holy Spirit power filled the television studio and was transmitted everywhere! Along with the pastors, each church shared their music ministry along with New Life Seventh-day Adventist church. After the inspirational word, pastors Vandeon Griffin and Java Mattison, the conference Personal Ministries and Publishing directors, respectively, challenged each listener to share their testimony to a stranger on the next day.  To help with that a Touch 10K Witnessing kit offered for any to purchase and use to share with their testimony.  Each kit included 400 tracks, a Touch 10K T-shirt, Prayer cards, Touch 10K Wristband, and Instructional Guide.  You can order the kit by calling the South Central Conference office at 615.226.6500.  The cost $25.00 per kit (includes shipping and handling). ‘The gospel can’t go anywhere until it goes everywhere’, pastor Benjamin Jones.

Oakwood University Church Celebrates 40 Years

  Oakwood University Church Celebrates 40 years in Current Edifice by Pastor Paul Goodridge  September 3, 1977 will long be remembered in the history of the Oakwood University Church, as on this date, the grand opening for its new, palatial 3,000 seat worship facility commenced.  Pastor Eric C. Ward, then Senior Pastor of the Oakwood College Church (now Oakwood University Church), led church members, Oakwood College faculty, and students in the ceremonial march from Ashby Auditorium, its former venue of worship, to the newly constructed Oakwood University Church building.  Ward, accompanied by several dignitaries including Pastor Charles E.
