In May I had the privilege of working with the lay leaders for the Oasis Seventh-day Adventist Church in Vancouver, WA to conduct a 17 meeting reaping series based on the gospel of John.
The church has gone through some rough times since last fall when their pastor joined the staff of the Sunday church they were renting and they found it necessary to relocate. With help from Al Reimche (firstname.lastname@example.org) & Steve Chinn (email@example.com) in the Oregon Conf. office they went through the process of clarifying their Adventist identity and building a strong lay leadership team.
Their new pastor, Rick New (firstname.lastname@example.org), baptized five new members from the meetings on his first Sabbath, June 11! “Behold, I make all things new.”
