Regional Convocation ’03 Sharing the Good News

Regional Convocation ’03 Sharing the Good News The 27th annual Regional Convocation, sponsored by the North Pacific Union Office of Regional Affairs, was held May 15–18 at Camp Berachah near Auburn, Washington. Wintley Phipps, pastor of the Palm Bay (Florida) Seventh-day Adventist Church and musician, was the guest speaker for the weekend. Responding to the theme of the weekend, “Sharing the Good News,” he declared that while God could ask the angels to spread the Gospel, He really needs humans, using their special talents, to minister to other humans. Highlights of the weekend included music which filled the air with praise. Singing groups and soloists from the Northwest and beyond ministered to the audiences in the meetings through out the weekend. Other special features were the seminars given by Rosa Banks, North American Division (NAD) associate secretary and human relations director, and Donald Hall, Wellsource Inc. president. Of course beyond the preaching and the music are the fellowship times with friends from all over the Northwest. The warm handshakes, the smiles and hugs are worth the trip. The 28th Regional Convocation will be held the same weekend, May 13–16, 2004, at the same place, Camp Berachah, for more inspiration, music and fellowship.
