Joint Statement from the Presidents of the Regional Conferences, the Vice Presidents for Regional Ministries for the Pacific and the North Pacific Unions and the Executive Directors of the Regional Conference Retirement Program and the Office for Regional Conference Ministry: We the Presidents of the Regional Conferences, the Vice Presidents for Regional Ministries for the Pacific and the North Pacific Unions, the Executive Directors for the Regional Conference Retirement Plan and the Office for Regional Conference Ministry of the Seventh-day Adventist Church wish to register our serious concerns for and strenuous objections to the practice of separating of families that is currently part of the immigration policy of our government. While we affirm the rule of law and believe that no one-great or small-is above the law, we would want to submit that we are not talking about criminals here-we are talking about children. At least- in some cases, these are very young children; children who would have no possible way to process what is happening to them. All they know is that they have been forcibly and indefinitely separated from the most important thing in their lives-their parents. Ironically, when a civilian forcibly takes a child from their parents, our government calls that a crime. When our government does the same thing, it is called a policy. We cannot conceive of this happening in a democracy and we call for ii to end now. We ask our brothers and sisters of our church and our brothers and sisters of other faith communities to join in demanding of our elected officials that they end a practice that we believe is antithetical to the spirit of Christ and Christianity.

“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.
