A Word From Our Executive Director - November 26, 2014
From all of us here from your denominational offices in Charlotte, we want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. We realize that not everyone within the Advent Christian family will be observing this festive day, as it is observed in the United States as a national holiday. The gathering together with family and friends, sharing a meal around a table laden with salads, meats and desserts, watching parades and football games are some of the traditional practices associated with this festive observance. Yet, one central ingredient that is often forgotten by the citizens of this nation is true thanks giving.

One of the responsibilities that come with the office of Executive Director is to sit at the table as an ex-officio member of several boards throughout the denomination. Just recently, I joined the Board of Trustees of Berkshire Christian College as they assembled in Haverhill, Mass., for their fall board meetings. (Pictured: left to right, back row: Nate Dean, Bob Price, Julie Morse, David Bohy; middle row: Steve Spearing, Tracy Ainsworth, Pam Gardner; front row: Ron Thomas, Lee Welkley, John Guess, Bob Hughes. 

Along with all the business, the Trustees set aside an evening to honor Lois Hutchinson, as she has announced her retirement after serving the college for nearly 27 years.

This past weekend was spent in New Albany, Ind. Jan and I were invited to participate in a "Coming Home" celebration. The New Albany Advent Christian Church was established 123 years ago and has been a contributing congregation throughout its history. It has served its community well and has provided strong denominational leaders who have served on the conference, region and General Conference levels. Rev. Nolan Leavitt has been the pastor for the last 10 years. He and his wife, Linda, along with the members of the church, gave us a very warm welcome.

Hopefully, your church has received the recent mailing that explains how we have used our Hunger/Emergency Relief Fund this year. We have helped people whose lives had been devastated by drought, floods, earthquakes, fire and hurricanes. So far this year, we have released nearly $17,000 to assist families and communities in times of crisis. It has been delivered in the form of food, medicine, supplies and finances as the immediate and lingering needs disrupt the lives of our brothers and sisters around the world. 

Emergencies are not scheduled. At any time we could hear the urgent cry of those in need. Because catastrophic occurrences and human tragedies can hit anytime, we want to be ready to respond quickly.

A Word From Our Executive Director - October 29, 2014
It was an impressive visit to the Midwest this past weekend. The two main responsibilities were to attend the Board of Trustees meetings for Aurora University and to worship with the congregation at Hope Community Church in Chicago. We also had the opportunity to spend some time with family as well. 

The board meetings were held on the George Williams campus in Williams Bay, Wis. While the college is a part of Aurora University, it provides additional academic disciplines that are unique because of its environmental setting by Lake Geneva. The business sessions offered many signs of health and growth for the University.
