A Word From Our Executive Director - October 1, 2014
I wish there was a way I could introduce to all our churches and members the people who work here at ACGC. The staff who serve you from the Charlotte offices are some very dedicated and faithful workers. Collectively, they bring to our denomination a variety of gifts, skills and talents that are invested in the responsibilities that come out of their desire to serve. It is my privilege and pleasure to work alongside such a great group of people who are committed to the mission and purpose of ACGC. 

Recently, we took the opportunity to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of a couple of our employees. Pictured above are Rev. Justin Nash, our Director of Communication, and Rev. Matt Larkin, Coordinator of Student & Kids’ Ministries.

Titus 2:13 was the theme verse for the 2014 annual meetings of the Missouri Valley Conference of Advent Christian Churches. I was privileged to be invited to join the officers and delegates of the conference this past weekend at the Tivoli Hills Resort near Clarksville, Mo. Terry and Kathi Cook hosted the event and it was a delightful three days. There was a worship service Friday and Saturday nights and Sunday morning. We also shared from the common loaf and cup for a communion service Sunday morning. In addition to the meetings of various boards and groups, Terry had arranged for a men’s activity Saturday afternoon.

Do you ever wonder what happens to the reports you fill out every year for ACGC? I ask this question to let you know that the information we receive from those standard annual reports are important to us, to your region and to your conference. I want you to know that Dr. “Sam” Warren, our Director of Nurture, and I take the time to read the reports with the purpose to learn what are the things of importance to our ministers and what is happening in our churches. For example: we are interested in knowing if the ACGC resources are being used by our church leaders. How many are subscribers of the weekly E-News, the “Witness,” or use the Penny Crusade or Prayer Emphasis material?

We as a denomination have been extremely blessed as we have partnered with some nationally known ministries.Some of the finest resources have been made available to us at little or no cost. Much of this quality material and learning events have been offered to our churches and leaders. One example of the benefits that come out of a partnership is the arrangement we have with Intimate Life®. A husband and wife in ministry can qualify for a grant that would cover the cost of a Galatians 6:6 Retreat — a time of personal renewal and encouragement for ministry couples. Because of this partnership ACGC has provided the means by which 30 couples have been able to attend these retreats.

A Word From Our Executive Director - September 3, 2014
September has traditionally been recognized by Advent Christians as a time to give attention to stewardship. I found it interesting, and at times amusing and a bit alarming to discover what fads, habits and cravings attract the American consumer. For example: last year we spent $117 billion on fast foods, $65 billion on soft drinks, $2.3 billion on tattoos, $16 billion on chocolate, $1.4 billion on teeth whiteners, $310 million on pet Halloween costumes, $550 million on pretzels and $500 million Twinkies®. We are a nation that spends freely to satisfy our appetites and bolster our self image. We as Christians are to be good stewards with our money. If we are good stewards, why is it that 86% of churches in America today are struggling financially?
