“A summer of service – to our youth and our community” By: Tiffney Gipson During any given summer, you can find the members of the Magazine St. Temple SDA Church hosting at least two activities, Vacation Bible School in mid-July and an annual Community Fest in mid-August. However, this summer Magazine decided to try something different. With the full support of Pastor Kennedy C. Luckett and the congregation, the Adventist Youth Ministries (AYM) Department in partnership with Magazine’s Youth Ministers decided to dedicate this summer to service.

It is no secret to the residents of Louisville that there is a negative connotation associated with this area. Positive happenings and uplifting stories seem few and far between while negatives like crime and violence seem to be on the rise. In fact, it was in late May of this year that a 6-year-old boy lost his life due to a stray bullet coming through the window of his home just mere blocks away from the Magazine St. Church. It is this type of senseless violence that rocked the city and seemed to ignite the flame for the church to be more of a presence in the Russell Neighborhood. How can the church get involved? How can Magazine make a difference in this community? Led by Jermaine Bentley and assisted by co-leaders Judith Bentley, Kadia Turner, and Brittney Washington, the AYM Department seemed to have [...]

The Graduation of the Gospel Medical Missionary Movement Training Class of 2017 The Seventh-day Adventist Gospel Medical Missionary Movement of the Tennessee Valley (GMMMTV) has been active since 2005. It began in 2003 when Wildwood Health Evangelism School graduate Jim Ayodo, accompanied by Wildwood MD’s. Ervin Davis and Scott Grivas, started training classes at the New Life SDA Church in Huntsville when Harold Goodloe was the pastor. Graduates of that class coalesced to form the nucleus of what is now the SDA Gospel Medical Missionary Movement of Greater Huntsville. GMMMTV consists of health ministry leaders, health professionals, lay pastors, ordained elders, and others who desire to see the Lord’s closing work done and to hasten His return. The group’s main goal is to advance the cause of gospel medical missionary work in cooperation with duly ordained gospel ministers, in accordance with the prophetic writings of Ellen White (see, for example, Counsels on Health, pp. 557,558). In this spirit of cooperation, the GMMMTV has, in cooperation with Oakwood, Southern, and Andrews Universities, co-sponsored medical missionary conventions at each of these schools. In the same spirit of cooperation, we want to revive this important and oft-neglected work. We would like to see the youth, the older members, the ministers, in fact every member to embrace this work, according to the Spirit of Prophecy (Testimonies, Volume 7, p. 62). GMMMTV has trained gospel medical missionaries [...]
