Global Seventh-day Adventist Education Success

Rwanda hosts the first of several regional events planned around the world

                    Church leaders and educators--Kigali, Rwanda

What do you do when a training event you recently offered gets very positive feedback? Judging by the Education Department of the General Conference in Silver Spring, Maryland, United States, you recharge and do it again, this time even better and in a global setting.

On February 15-19, 2017,  239 Seventh-day Adventist educators from across the African continent and adjacent Indian Ocean islands met in Kigali, Rwanda for the first of four planned worldwide regional conferences on Seventh-day Adventist Education. The participants, who came from the three regions—or divisions—of the world church in Africa, represent 45 percent of the 8,208 Seventh-day Adventist schools around the world, 39 percent of its 102,779 teachers, and 52 percent of its nearly 2 million students.

The event marked the first phase of the implementation of a decision made at the well-received Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) Conference on Seventh-day Adventist Education at the world church headquarters last October. At that conference, hosted during Annual Council 2016—a major annual business meeting of the world church—i t was agreed to extend the same kind of training and discussion then offered to the members of the Executive Board of the world church to other church educational leaders and educators on the ground and around the world.

“Annual Council 2016 voted to authorize the Education Department, in collaboration with the various world divisions—or regions—to develop a guiding philosophy and a worldwide, regionally responsive plan for Seventh-day Adventist education,” said Lisa Beardsley-Hardy, education director of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, when explaining the rationale for these regional events.

The topics mentioned in the objectives discussed include establishing measurable goals to increase the number of schools and Adventist students, increasing retention and academic excellence, developing educational resources for alternative models of education, and identifying innovations which may serve to enhance the affordability and sustainability of Seventh-day Adventist schools.

Similar conferences are planned for other regions in the next few months, as the Education Department tries to cover every major division, or region, of the world church.

“At these conferences, participants will formulate educational plans that incorporate local, national and regional priorities and objectives,”  said Beardsley. “It is also expected that they make recommendations to Annual Council in October 2017 on how to achieve higher visibility for education globally”.

Besides small group discussions and plenary sessions, participants of the Rwanda conference enjoyed devotional messages by church leaders, moments of worship on Friday evening and Saturday, and even a visit to the Kigali Genocide Memorial Center on Saturday afternoon.

Most participants were not shy at expressing their appreciation for the event.

“The conference provided me with many ideas to enhance my leadership,” said one of the participants. “I would like this conference to take place more often, and to consider including school board chairs, […] treasurers, and even pastors. ”

Next LEAD regional conference is slated to take place from May 30-June 4 in Slovenia.

 

 

 

Romania Evangelism Success

Romania’s evangelistic meetings likened to growing snowball

 

                                                          Floresti,  Romania                                                                                             [Ted Wilson / Facebook]

Unexpectedly large crowds are flocking to Seventh-day Adventist evangelistic meetings in Romania and Ukraine despite hurdles such as armed conflict, national rallies, and a shouting priest.

The Total Member Involvement (TMI) evangelistic meetings, many led by lay people, are being held in eight countries this month and next as part of a major evangelistic endeavor that church leaders hope will spread across Europe. 

The first wave of two-week meetings will wrap up at 500 sites in Ukraine this weekend, while more than 1,300 sites in Romania will be entering their second week. Meetings also are being held at hundreds of sites in Armenia, Belarus, Bulgaria, Georgia, Moldova, and Russia. In all, meetings are to take place at more than 4,300 sites. 

Adventist Church president Ted N.C. Wilson, who is leading meetings in Floresti near Romania’s capital, Bucharest, said he is thrilled with the high attendance in the predominantly Orthodox country.

“One conference leader said, ‘This is like a snowball, and it’s getting bigger and bigger,’” Wilson said after participating in a video conference call with Romanian church leaders. “There seems to be a very positive emphasis all around the union.”

He said he was especially excited that lay people are leading meetings at hundreds of sites.

“This is what TMI is all about,” he said.

TMI is a world church initiative that encourages every church member to share the gospel in their communities.

Among the Romanian speakers are two 12-year-old children, Wilson said.

Several Romanian pastors acknowledged in interviews that they had worried that nightly attendance would be low if meetings were held on weekdays. But sites across Romania have reported a strong turnout, including many guests.

“We were told that no one would come during the week,” said Duane McKey, the world church’s TMI coordinator. “They said there would be one or two guests. But some nights this week have been the largest so far.”

‘Model for All of Europe’

“Who would have ever thought that in one small country about the size of the Michigan Conference” — a church territory in the North American Division — “we would have over 2,000 evangelistic meetings,” McKey said. “Amazing! This is a model for all of Europe.”

Church leaders are paying special attention to how the meetings are being received in Romania, which has a highly secularized society like much of Europe. They view the country as a testing ground for expanding TMI meetings to the rest of the continent. 

Most Romanian meetings opened amid some of the largest anti-government rallies in the country’s history. But the street demonstrations, which peaked at 500,000 people and weakened as the meetings picked up steam, have not affected attendance negatively, church leaders said.

Neither did a village priest who tried to disrupt a meeting at a rural church, said Ștefan Tomoiagă, president of the Adventist Church’s Romanian Union.

The priest, aged about 30, stood outside the church until 20 minutes before the meeting ended, screaming and telling non-church members not to enter, Tomoiagă said.

“The priest stood at the church’s gate until around 6:40 p.m. in a sign that even then people remained outside who wanted to enter,” he said in an e-mail to church leaders. “I invite you to pray especially for this church.”

Attendance is also a robust 50 to 60 inmates a night in a Romanian prison where Bruce Parrish, a retired employee of the U.S. prison system, is leading meetings.

“The meetings are going well but it is hard because the prison will not let me use my laptop,” Parrish said. “We have to use their computers.”

Preaching in East Ukraine

In Ukraine, presenters spoke about an outpouring of the Holy Spirit on their meetings.

May-Ellen Colón, a U.S. citizen who is leading four meetings daily, said attendance is strong at her four sites in eastern Ukraine, which has been mired in conflict for the past two years and experienced renewed violence as the meetings began.

“More than 200 visitors, plus church members and children, are attending the meetings consistently at the four sites where I am working,” said Colón, director of Adventist Community Services International and an ADRA liaison.

She said at least half of her attendees have been displaced by the conflict.

“Some have lost all, and many are struggling and destitute,” she said.

In central Ukraine, Tiago Leao, a recently baptized young man from Brazil, said he spends all day preparing his presentations for evening meetings in Uman, a town of 87,000 people.

“The response of the church is fantastic,” Leao said. “This is the most amazing experience of my life.”

He was echoed by Arturo Gutierrez, a Mexican national who is leading meetings in Chernivtsi, a western city of 255,000 people.

“Last night I made a call for people to give their lives to Christ and 13 non-Adventists stood up,” he said. “Please pray for them to keep their decisions.”

The two men shared their experiences with Ramon Canals, who is coordinating the Ukrainian meetings and works as associate director of the Adventist world church’s Sabbath School and Personal Ministries department. Canals forwarded their e-mails to Adventist Mission. 

“God is blessing His people all over this territory as the preachers stand up on the pulpits and preach the Word,” Canals said Thursday.

He said one of the Ukrainian sites has 140 guests nightly and 60 of them have already made decisions for baptism.

The evangelistic meetings, which started in Ukraine on Feb. 3 and are modeled after a major effort that resulted in 110,000 baptisms in Rwanda last year, are being held in waves across the eight European countries over the next few weeks. Another 500 meetings are planned for Ukraine after the first meetings conclude this weekend.

But church leaders said it was too early to estimate how many people would be baptized. In Romania, the first major baptisms are only expected in June so baptismal candidates will have sufficient time for Bible studies.

 

 

 

500 Evangelistic Meetings in Eastern Europe

Elder Ted Wilson and Euro-Asia Division president Michael Kaminskiy in Bucha, Ukraine    [Andrew McChesney / Adventist Mission]

Seventh-day Adventists from around the world descended on a Ukrainian college campus to finalize local plans for an enormous evangelistic endeavor that church leaders hope will spread across Europe.

On Friday evening, 500 evangelistic meetings will kick off in Ukraine, and hundreds more across the former Soviet Union, as part of Total Member Involvement (TMI), a world church initiative that encourages every church member to share the gospel in their communities.  

More than 2,000 meetings will begin a week later in Romania and elsewhere, followed by a third wave and a four wave of meetings across Eastern Europe.

In all, more than 4,300 sites will host evangelistic series in eight countries: Armenia, Belarus, Bulgaria, Georgia, Moldova, Romania, Russia, and Ukraine.

Adventist Church president Ted N.C. Wilson, speaking at an orientation meeting for evangelists in Ukraine on Thursday, expressed hope that “what God is going to do in Eastern Europe over the next six weeks will inspire a spiritual revival across … Europe.” 

“Eyes are upon you,” Wilson told a group of lay members, ministers, and church administrators gathered on the campus of the Ukrainian Adventist Center of Higher Education in Bucha, a town outside Ukraine’s capital, Kiev. “People are watching what God will do here because God wants to do this everywhere.” 

The evangelistic meetings are patterned after a combination of prayer, Bible study, community outreach, and preaching that resulted in a record 110,476 baptisms in Rwanda last year. But church leaders are not seeking a large number of baptisms at the conclusion of the East European meetings. In Romania, for example, guests will be invited to attend Bible studies and the first baptisms may only take place in June. In the former Soviet Union, a vast territory with only about 113,000 members, church leaders hope the evangelistic meetings will re-energize local churches.

New Friends, New Contacts

“This is a good opportunity to encourage people to get involved and to preach,” said Michael Kaminskiy, president  for the church in the church’s Euro-Asia region, whose territory covers much of the former Soviet Union. 

Reinvigorated members are needed because some churches in Ukraine, for instance, have not had a single baptism in the past year, he said. 

“The main goal of the evangelistic meetings,” Kaminskiy added, is not baptisms but “to help the church make new friends and new contacts.”

To that end, the Euro-Asia region will organize meetings at 2,150 sites, mostly in February and March but some as late as May, Kaminsky said. Of those meetings, 1,000 will be in Ukraine and another 700 in Moldova.

In addition, 2,017 meetings are planned for Romania in February, said Ștefan Tomoiagă, president of the Adventist Church in Romania. 

“We strongly believe that God is able to bless Romania abundantly,” he said in an e-mail to church leaders. “Let our prayers continue to be fervent and constant and our actions accordingly.”

Among those who will preach in Romania are Wilson and his wife, Nancy, who will have their own sites. Nancy Wilson, who also preached in Rwanda last year, will lead an evangelistic series at a predominantly Roma church in Romania’s capital, Bucharest.

“You don’t need to be an ordained minister or any kind of official to preach and share Jesus Christ,” Ted Wilson told the orientation meeting. Among those in attendance were 22 teams of lay evangelists from as far away as Mexico, Argentina, and the United States.

Challenge of Western Europe

Wilson said in an interview that Adventists have been able to reach out to their communities in marvelous ways in Western Europe, but secular and materialistic challenges can be discouraging at times. He said he hoped that the TMI spirit showcased in Eastern Europe this year would spill over to Western Europe. 

“We thank God for the many wonderful things happening in Western Europe,” he said. “But the Lord wants to see a revival in Europe and all over the world. Perhaps these evangelistic meetings in Eastern Europe can help to create an extraordinary moment in which lay people become equally if not more involved than church workers in saying, ‘You know, we can do that, too.’”

Addressing the orientation meeting, Wilson pointed to a passage from Ellen White’s “Testimonies to the Church” Vol. 9 to emphasize that lay people will be key in spreading the gospel. The text reads, “The work of God in this earth can never be finished until the men and women comprising our church membership rally to the work and unite in their effort with those of ministers and church officers” (page 117).

“This is what we are seeing happening all over the world,” Wilson said. Attendees smiled appreciatively as Wilson switched to Russian and added, “Мы знаем, что скоро придёт Иисуса. Это факт. (We know that Jesus is coming soon. That’s a fact.)”

 

 

 

GC Leaders Continue Workiing With NAD

Seventh-day Adventist General Conference officers, Ted Wilson, G.T. Ng, and Juan Prestol-Puesan met with North American Division officers and union presidents yesterday to discuss the rebellion taking place in some unions that have violated the world church's position on not making women rulers over men.

The meeting is in response to a decision made by the General Conference at the Annual Council held last October to deal with what is being called "non-compliant church entities." These entities are conferences that are in rebellion against the world church and their own constitutions by ordaining women pastors, and in one case having made a woman a conference president. This growing rebellion has the support of the North American Division.

The Annual Council delegates voted a "redemptive plan" to bring the rebellious conferences into "reconciliation and adherence with voted actions and policies of the world church." This redemptive process has begun. The meeting held yesterday found common ground in that God would have His church unified. But, that unity is not seen in the same light by the rebellious conferences and the world church leaders.

The North American Division believes that the culture of Africa and the culture of North America and Europe must be allowed to dictate what course to follow in regards to the role of women in the church. Thus, unity is seen as allowing for culture to be involved in making exceptions to what Scripture reveals.

There has been accusations made by some in the rebellion that "kingly power" is being exercised at the General Conference level. But, General Conference president, Ted Wilson, points out that it is the conferences who are working contrary to the vote of the delegates representing churches from around the world who are exercising "kingly power."

                                                                                                  GC President Ted Wilson addressing Annual Council

“As president of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, I am duty bound with a sacred responsibility, as are all other officers of every level of organizations throughout the church as is indicated in Working Policy, to follow what the world church has voted in session (whether I agree with it or not)....To go against this vote would be exercising kingly authority....What could be more of a ‘kingly authority’ action than to deliberately go against what has been voted by the worldwide representation of delegates from around the world at a General Conference Session? Three times this subject has been addressed in some form by a General Conference Session.”

If these meetings which are designed to be redemptive do not accomplish their purpose, then the General Conference will draft a second document to deal with the rebel conferences. One of the fruits seen in the life of those who love God supremely is the fruit of "love", love for our enemies. Another is "long-suffering".  Both are seen in the patient protracted process of dealing with a rebellion which began decades ago.

Adventist World Radio President Retires


The Adventist World Radio (AWR) Board of Directors has elected Duane McKey as the new president of Adventist World Radio, replacing Dowell Chow, who has served as president for the past six years. McKey has been director of Sabbath School and Personal Ministries at the world headquarters of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, as well as assistant to Ted Wilson, the president of the denomination, for Total Member Involvement since 2015. Prior to that, he was vice president of the Southwestern Union Conference in Texas, USA, and president of the Arizona Conference.

Chow is retiring in January, 2017, after 50 years of service to the Seventh-day Adventist Church in a variety of roles and countries. He first joined AWR in 2005, working as vice president for finance, before stepping into the role of president. Prior to that, he served in positions ranging from chief financial officer/treasurer of the Columbia Union Conference in Maryland, president of the New Jersey Conference, and stewardship, trust services and ministerial director, to senior pastor in Puerto Rico, and mission secretary/treasurer and Book & Bible house administrator in Venezuela. Over the years, he was an active member of multiple boards, including Washington Adventist University, Adventist Health, Washington Adventist Hospital, and additional health entities in New Jersey.

During his time at AWR, Chow was a tireless traveler. He hiked across mountains in Mexico to deliver audio players to isolated tribal villagers, baptized new Adventists in a muddy pit in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, verified FM signals in the Canary Islands, helped train new producers for Bhutan, and more.

Under his leadership, AWR’s active broadcasts – heard via shortwave, AM/FM, and podcasts – grew by more than a dozen languages, including Dzongkha, Tibetan, Yemba, and Oriya. At last count, AWR’s daily podcast downloads had reached 18 million. Chow spearheaded the negotiations for the first Adventist FM broadcasts in India (which now serve millions of listeners in 22 major cities). He was thrilled to see plans for four production studios in mainland China become reality. He had a passion for the people of North Africa, and worked closely with the Spanish Union of Churches Conference on FM broadcasts that would serve listeners in multiple colloquial languages.

Chow says, “Serving the church through Adventist World Radio has been a privilege. It is a thrill to see the gospel commission being played out in the world, assisted by the ministry of AWR. I would like to express special gratitude to our faithful supporters. Brighter days are still ahead, and it is my prayer that under the leadership of our new president, AWR will grow and continue to be a blessing to world.”

AWR senior vice president Greg Scott says, “It has been an honor and a privilege to serve with Dowell, as God has used him a powerful way. As he and his wife, Heidi, move on to the next phase of their life, we truly wish them all the best and pray for God’s richest blessings upon them.”

 

 

 

Seventh-day Adventist University in the Dominican Republic

 

Leaders of an Adventist university in the Dominican Republic are celebrating the record number of graduates who recently concluded their studies. 530 graduates from 17 undergraduate and 3 graduate programs marked a historic moment for Dominican Adventist University.

Several dignitaries attended the graduation service on November 27, 2016, including the Senator of the Monseñor Nouel Province, Felix Nova Paulino. Senator Nova said, "We applaud your efforts in moving forward and positively influencing the development of these communities."

The school has seen steady growth, especially during the last five years. In 2012, 220 students graduated compared to the 530 who graduated 3 months ago. The president of the University, Feliberto Martínez, said, "This increase in the number of students is no more than the blessings brought by the work that we do in the fulfillment of the mission of the world church at a national level."

 

 

 

 

 

Refugee Children Helping Other Refugees

 

 

 

                       Refugee children at refugee camp in Middle East

Twenty-seven Syrian refugee students from the Adventist Learning Center (ALC) in Beirut, Lebanon piled into a tiny rented bus for the one and a half hour to north Lebanon to deliver sacks of clothing and some donated foods.

This annual project started as a simple assignment for the Adventist Learning Center to express gratitude for the donations and support it receives from around the world. For example, the refugee children of ACL have been given winter jackets and rain boots. 

Every Christmas the center gives a child a shoebox full of useful things. This Christmas, the students were issued a challenge to find a project that helps someone else. 

“Each of our students has their story of loss and trauma, but despite their past, they can learn to reach out and bless others as well,” said Alexis Hurd-Shires, director of Adventist Learning Center. 

Hurd-Shires said even though many of these kids come from homes that lack proper doors, windows, and walls, where their parents don't have jobs, and families who don’t know how they’re going to pay the rent or put food on the table, they were diligent in their task. 

Asking friends and neighbors, and even digging in the donations they personally received, the students collected clothes and shoes bag-by-bag. As a result, they collected more than 30 large black trash sacks of goods.

This gesture of self-sacrifice from the refugee children touched church leaders. 

“Sometimes I am struck with how many times we share what we have at no sacrifice, but others share what they need at great sacrifice,” said Rick McEdward, president of Middle East and North Africa Union.

The story of refugee children’s act led him to more thoughts. “Could it be that the poor are less attached to things, so they are willing to be at risk to share even out of their poverty?” McEdward said. 

No sooner had the tires sunk into the mud before the bus was surrounded by the occupants of the scattered UNICEF tents.

When the refugee students, who came with jackets, rain boots, and warm hats pulled over their ears, got off the bus, they were immediately shocked at many unusual scenes, such as children walking without shoes and refugees washing clothes outside in the freezing weather. 

Teachers were no exception. 

“It was completely unexpected when a drop of icy water rolled down my neck and two more soaked through my hair,” said Giedre Asmar, fourth-grade teacher of Adventist Learning Center. “When I was shocked to see the broken tent roof from the weight of the rain water, refugees told me that their living conditions are tolerable until it snows.”

After their visit, the snow season began in northern Lebanon.

The Syrian refugee children from the Adventist Learning Center took turns carrying the bags of clothes and food to each tent and then scattered out to spend some time with the refugees.

It provided them with opportunities to observe the living conditions. 

“There is no running water, no carpet on the floor, and no school,” said Mohammad, a 10-year-old Syrian refugee who studies at Adventist Learning Center.

The students played a game of football under the olive trees with the tent kids who hadn’t seen a ball in a long time, while others wandered through the tents talking to the people who lived in them.

Behind one tent a group of boys found a teenage girl trying to build a tiny fire to heat some water for washing clothes. Quickly they scattered to help her find more wood then manned the fired under her metal pot.  

After the visit, the visitors and refugees gathered in the mud-field to say goodbyes. 

 “When we were about to leave, one older woman whispered me that for a few hours we made them forget their circumstances and where they are,” Hurd-Shires said.

 

 

 

A New Year of Life


 

     Although in one sense the first day of the new year is no more to God than any other day, yet He often puts into the hearts of His children at that time a desire to begin the new year with new resolves,--perhaps with plans to carry out some worthy enterprise,--and with purposes to depart from the wrongs of the old year and to live the new year with new determinations.   
     In God's plan for His ancient people, He gave the command, "On the first day of the first month shalt thou set up the tabernacle." We have no tabernacle to set up as had the children of Israel, but we have a work of building to do, the importance of which all need to understand. Let us remember that character is not the result of accident, but day by day it is forming for good or for evil. Great importance attaches to this work of character building; for it is far-reaching in its results. We are builders for time and for eternity. Few realize the power of habit. Examine your own heart and life in the light of God's Word, and ask yourself, "What has my record been for the year that is just closing? What advancement have I made in the Christian life? What victories have I gained? And what have I done to help others, and to lead them to Christ?"
     God has not placed you in the world to lead an aimless life. He designs that you should be useful, and reach a high standard of moral excellence. To each one some work is given. During the old year have you performed your appointed tasks with cheerfulness and fidelity, having an eye single to the glory of God? Opportunities and privileges have been granted you; what use have you made of these gifts entrusted to you by our Heavenly Father? Have you made yourself a blessing to those around you? Have you done what you could to make them happy and win them to Christ?
     All this is a part of your appointed work. God also requires each of us to subdue self, not giving the rein to self-indulgence or appetite, and to form characters that will stand the test of the judgment and go with us into the future life. 
     Shall the close of the year find you further advanced than you are today? Will you put away evil habits? Will you be considerate of others, faithful to do the work of a Christian? If you will carry the principles of right-doing into all the affairs of life, you will find that it will promote health of body, peace of mind, and prosperity of soul. You will have a strength, dignity, and sweetness of character that will have a transforming influence upon others. 
     We are now entering upon a new year, and may it prove a beginning of years to us. If in the old year we have made failures, let us commence the new by rectifying these errors as far as we can. If the old year has borne into eternity a spotted record of opportunities neglected and privileges slighted, let us see that that of the new year is free from these blemishes. Its days are all before us; let us begin now to make the history of each as it passes, such as we shall not tremble to meet in the judgment. Let us fill each one full of loving, helpful work for others. Let us develop all our powers, and make of ourselves all that God designed that we should.  
     In the keeping of God's commandments there is great reward. A reward awaits the overcomer in the great day, when he shall hear from the lips of our Lord, "Well done, good and faithful servant"; and there is also a present reward in the peace and happiness that flow from the conscience at rest, from the sweet assurance that we enjoy the favour of God. "All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth unto such as keep His covenant and His testimonies." To all who walk in His ways the new year will be crowded with goodness and blessing.

Food For Life

But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.       2 Corinthians 3:18

Country Living

Mar10 Demo Image Too late to move?

Moving to the country is becoming very hard in some locations. Selling a home and financing a new one is difficult. Some government agencies want to move everyone into the cities. God's people need to take their families away from the cities, into the country, where they can raise their own provisions; for in the future the problem of buying and selling will be a very serious one. We should now begin to heed the instruction given us over and over again: Get out of the cities into rural districts, where the houses are not crowded closely together, and where you will be free from the interference of those who are opposed to the truth. Pray that God will open a way.

Religious Liberty

European Sunday Law?

The world will urge an outward compliance with the laws of the land, for the sake of peace and harmony. And there are some who will even urge such a course from the Scripture: "Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. . . . The powers that be are ordained of God." But what has been the course of God's servants in ages past? When the disciples preached Christ and Him crucified, after His resurrection, the authorities commanded them not to speak any more nor to teach in the name of Jesus. "But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard." Today, our liberty is being threatened.
