“When I was president of the Upper Columbia Conference our union president, Bruce Johnston, used to tell us that every pastor and administrator should hold evangelistic meetings regularly. That really bugged me since I had already decided administration was my gift, not evangelism. I almost walked out of one of our committees I was so upset. But then I held meetings, and it totally changed my perspective. I’ve never looked back.”
— Jere Patzer, President of the North Pacific Union, who has now held major evangelistic meetings in almost every division of the world field, including North America, resulting in tens of thousands of baptisms. He Knows What He’s Talking About.
