A Word From Our Executive Director - August 27, 2014
I trust all our churches in North America have received the recent mailing from our offices, which was to call attention to Pastor Appreciation Month. Hopefully, all our churches will find a way to tell their pastors that they are appreciated and loved. The mailing offered a few suggestions as to what a church might do to demonstrate love and respect for the one who serves as their shepherd. There are a number of good books and other gifts available through our Venture Bookstore. It would really be a wonderful gift if the church would consider providing the opportunity for your pastor and spouse to attend a Galatians 6:6 Retreat. (We included a brochure in the mailing.)

It was a beautiful Sunday morning in Walterboro, S.C. I arrived at Grace Advent Christian Church in time to visit and pray with Pastor Wayne Lucas. It was more than a quiet time together in the Prayer Room. It also included walking the halls outside the Sunday school rooms and laying our hands on the doors of every class room, praying for the teachers and students on the other side of each door. Prior to the morning service, we were joined by a group of men, again in the Prayer Room to pray for the worship service. 

As people entered the sanctuary they were quick to greet each other and were warm and gracious to the many visitors, many who had come to witness the five baptisms that concluded the worship hour.

A little less than two months ago, the 2014 Triennial Convention was being held in Charlotte, N.C. Since then, we all have returned to the routines determined by work, family and ministry. My guess is that very few outside the offices in Charlotte are thinking about the summer of 2017. The fact is, planning for the 2017 Triennial Convention is being addressed now, as site location is one of the biggest challenges we face. Finding the facilities that can accommodate the size of our event, closely located to a major airport, meets the expressed preferences of our attendees and is reasonably affordable are some of the major factors that are considered in the selection of a site.

I just spent a weekend in the mountains. This came about through an invitation to attend the annual meetings of the Appalachian Advent Christian Association at the Blowing Rock campgrounds. I met with the official board of the Appalachian Region on Thursday, brought greetings to the WHFMS regional meetings on Friday and addressed the delegates of the region’s annual meeting on Saturday. 

Several encouraging reports were shared over the weekend related to summer ministries, General Appalachian Youth Camp, Piedmont Conference Youth Camp and Family Camp, which maxed out all available housing for the week. It was exciting to hear of the number of decisions for Christ that were made during the summer camping sessions.

It is truly exciting for us at ACGC to provide a service to our churches that has proven itself as beneficial and favorably endorsed. Rightnow Media® is clearly one of those proven tools that has been field tested and appreciated by those who have taken advantage of this tremendous resource. The worth of Rightnow Media® is expressed by a note we received from one of our pastors who took advantage of the subscription offer that is available only through ACGC. He writes: “Opportunity is knocking for a second time, please don’t miss out! A little over a year ago I was introduced to Rightnow Media®, and our church joined even before the great deal that is available today. If you were to join today individually you would pay right at $1,000 for a year of access, but we are fortunate to be able to join as a group for around $360. This includes all three levels of material.
