Fourteen Soul Winning Highlights from the NPUC

  1. There were 35% more people baptized during Jan-Jun 2008 in the NPUC than there were the same period in 2007. PTL!
  2. Over half of Seventh-day Adventist churches in the NPUC had no baptisms/POF during Jan-Jun 2008.
  3. Our Top Ten Target City for Jul-Dec 2008 is Spokane, WA. Members have been praying and receiving training in how to give Bible studies, many Bible studies are in progress, and Byron Corbett & John Bradshaw will be teaming up to preach the eight meeting Momentum series in late October. The series will later appear on the Hope Channel and be provided to NPUC churches on DVD.
  4. Vancouver, WA is the Top Ten Target City for Jan-Jun 2009. Paul Johnson, Oregon Conference Evangelism Coordinator, has been meeting with area pastors to mobilize 300 prayer groups, offer Bible study training for members by Kurt Johnson from the Voice of Prophecy, and prepare for the eight night Momentum series by Derek Morris, Senior Pastor of the Forest Lake Church in Orlando, FL in late February.
  5. It’s not too late to challenge your congregation or students to fill out a prayer warrior card for this harvest cycle. It’s also not too late to discuss the eight Bible-based principles of Momentum with your church or school board and make plans that can result in soul winning this fall.
  6. Many churches will include in their plans Discoveries ’08 with Mark Finley coming this fall from the Forest Lake Church in Orlando, FL.
  7. Steve Cook, Evangelist for the Oregon Conference, is preaching an evangelistic series on local TV for the southern Oregon area, with a dozen+ churches supporting the meetings.
  8. Spanish churches throughout the northwest have seen incredible growth in faith and numbers through the ministry of Alejandro Bullon, recently retired evangelist for the South American Division.
  9. Washington Conference has many reaping meetings planned for this fall, including many by the office staff. A major emphasis across the conference has been involving more and more members in outreach and soul winning activities.
  10. Montana Conference recently held their third “Boot Camp of Evangelism”, providing training for dozens of lay members in how to share their faith.
  11. In addition to on-going outreach and soul winning efforts the Alaska Conference has laid plans for major reaping meetings in Wrangell, Palmer, Dillingham, Fairbanks and Anchorage city-wide over the next 18 months.
  12. The Eagle Church in the Idaho Conference has had good success in reaching the parents of pre-Adventist students in their church school with the Adventist message and seeing them unite with this movement.
  13. Our NPUC Evangelists are busy soul winning as usual. Jac Colon is working with nine seminary students conducting a field school of evangelism and meetings in Tacoma, WA with the Central church. Richard Halversen is having a tremendous response in Kalispell, MT. And Lyle Albrecht is holding meetings with the Woodburn, OR congregation. For their schedule and scheduling process click here.
  14. The African-American churches of the northwest have laid some bold soul winning plans for this fall and next spring. See next post for more information.
