Greater Mobile Area Pastoral Fellowship

Greater Mobile Pastoral Fellowship’s Men’s Ministry Weekend, Men On A Mission, July 18-20

In 2010, Elder Marvin L. Allison Sr., pastor of New Beginnings and Gethsemane, South Central Conference (SCC), went to the Cody Road church in Mobile, Gulf States Conference (GSC), one afternoon to meet Elder Gary Tracy, the pastor at that time, with a dream; a dream that all the Mobile area churches, from both conferences, would cooperate together, as one church, in service for the Kingdom.  Pastor Tracy then shared that he was praying for a pastor from SCC, who would partner with his dream that the Mobile area churches, belonging to GSC and SCC, cooperate as one church, in service for the Kingdom.

This meeting resulted in the Greater Mobile Pastoral Fellowship (GMPF), where pastors come together in prayer. Soon after the church elders from 9 churches in both conferences, began to meet for prayer. After that prayer initiative the area churches began to come together for Wednesday night prayer meetings. This fellowship led to Elder Tracy sharing that GSC was planning an evangelistic effort with Dr. Mark Finley. The SCC pastors got on board and each SCC church received an appropriation for the conference and joined in cooperative working to the planning and implementation of this area wide evangelistic meeting, in February 2012. While working together, Seventh-day Adventists, from all walks of life, fanned out over the area, as far west as Gulfport MS, to as far north as Bay Minette AL, as far South as Gulf Shores, AL to as far east as Pensacola, FL. The spirit of cooperative unity was riding high.

However after that meeting was completed, the normal course of ministry began to affect the GMPF. Out of the […]

Impact Pentecost 50 Days of Fire

Let the Fire Fall
“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh…Joel 2:28.

At the end the end of last summer, I heard the Spirit of God speak to me about this year and He said He would begin to pour His Spirit out on our young people this summer. As we see the world settling in their rebellion against Jesus and the principles of God as expressed in the Bible, we can rest assure He wants to work through us a mighty work. Our students are away every year for ten week a total of 70 days. With 2 days off a week it amounts to 50 days of literature evangelism. This biblical number gives significance to the theme Impact Pentecost: 50 Days of Fire!

SCC Education Department On the Move – Growth and New Staffing

Adventist Education is experiencing tremendous growth in the South Central Conference.  In 2013-2014 school year, enrollment increased by over 30% from 595 in August, to 778 in May.  Although enrollment has been on the rise for the past three years, this explosion of growth is primarily due to the advent of the Alabama Opportunity Scholarship.  This program provides full tuition scholarships to eligible students across Alabama.  Enrollments in Emmanuel (Mobile), Bethany (Montgomery), Ephesus (Birmingham) and Oakwood (Huntsville) saw a dramatic rise after the program opened in December of 2013.  God has literally opened the windows of Heaven so that we do not have room enough to receive the blessing, as these schools are now filled to overflowing and have waiting lists!

Several new staff have joined the ranks of the SCC education family.  New administrators include:    Dr. William Lusain (Ephesus), Walter Turner (Alcy), and Dariel Jordan (Emmanuel).  Oakwood and F.H. Jenkins will be headed by interim principals for 2014-2015.  Jason Edgecombe brings over thirty years of administrative experience in both the denominational and public school sectors.  Eula Washington is no stranger to South Central, having served as teacher, principal and superintendent prior to her retirement.  These individuals will lead the Huntsville and Nashville schools during the transitional period as they search for permanent administrators.  Angenette Hill departs the SCC Office of Education and returns to the classroom as the PreK teacher at Oakwood, and Sharon Lewis leaves Huntsville to serve as the Associate Superintendent of Education.  Sixteen new teachers have been hired to meet the needs of our schools across the conference.

Schools will open on August 11, and we anticipate that well over 800 children will enter classrooms where they will “Be taught of the Lord”.  […]

The Huntsville Association of Retired Adventist Workers (HARAW) recently launched the “Second Responders Prayer Ministry”.  HARAW President William Parks and Dr. Clarence E. Hodges, Second Responders Coordinator and Communications chairperson, announced that this ministry, sponsored by HARAW, is open for all persons interested in praying for suffering humanity.

This prayer initiative was organized in response to recent floods, mudslides, tornados, kidnapping of children, mass murders, earthquakes, and other disasters in the United States and other parts of the world.  Prayers ascend from the Second Responders in response to information from first responders (police, firefighters, and emergency medical personnel).  President Parks and Hodges stressed the need for much prayer in support of the immediate victims, their families, helpers, and first responders who put their lives in danger seeking to save lives and property of others.

This prayer group prays individually, daily, and periodically together on telephone conference calls.  Those who wish to be a part of this ministry, of any faith and location, may request inclusion by contacting the Oakwood University Church prayer line at 256-837-1255, extension 4.  This is a worldwide ministry serving God’s disaster-suffering children worldwide.  In addition to praying for suffering humankind, prayers are always needed for God’s people to live the love of Christ as did the “Good Samaritan” and as taught by Christ in Matthew 25:31-46 and John 17:20-23.

– Clarence E. Hodges
