From ACGC – February 15, 2017

             Steve Lawson

It has been a busy two weeks here in Charlotte as we have hosted the Focus Group, superintendents, and Executive Council meetings but it has been great fellowship and exciting work. I want to thank all of those who serve on these committees and Executive Council for their dedication to the ministry of the Advent Christian denomination. The work that we strive to accomplish in these meetings and the hearts of the people who participate center on a desire to further the kingdom of God through the ministry of the Advent Christian churches, here in North America and around the world through our partnerships with other conferences.

Studying theology provides a way to make sense of many of the great debates and themes in history as well as those occurring in our current times.

Darkness to Light Training

A little over a week ago, I had the opportunity to facilitate a program called Stewards of Children, a sexual abuse prevention training developed by one of our partner organizations, Darkness to Light. This particular time, I facilitated this training at Dulin’s Grove Church in Charlotte, North Carolina – the church that I am a part of (that is, when I’m home).
