Converted Pastors Attend Evangelistic Convention

Converted Pastors Attend Evangelistic Convention The number of other Northwest denominations' pastors becoming Adventists has been increasing recently. Four of these pastors, including three Native Americans, were invited to attend a pastor’s evangelism workshop in Simi Valley, Calif., along with the Native Northwest ministerial group. It was a fun, educational and inspirational time that gave these new pastors a great one-on-one experience with Adventist pastors and North American Division ministerial officers. These pastors have been God’s men all along, and their love for God’s word and their dedication to follow it was refreshing. Some of these pastors have gone through some very stressful repercussions with family and their former parishioners because of becoming “sabbatarians.” They are thrilled over the working organization of the church and impressed with the care the church gives its pastors. Though all four have become Adventists in just the past 24 months, two are already employed by conferences. Another has retired but still preaches regularly in Adventist churches, while the fourth is preparing for full-time ministry.
