A Day With Hyveth Williams Sponsored by Women's MInistries of Your Bible Speaks Church
Your Bible Speaks (YBS) Church and (Portland) women’s ministries, sponsored a one-day worship and fellowship meeting at the Oregon Conference office on Aug. 21. The featured speaker was Hyveth Williams, Loma Linda Campus Hill Church senior pastor and Loma Linda University adjunct professor of religion.
The day included a special presentation ceremony honoring the women who have tirelessly dedicated their time and talents to Women’s Ministries throughout the year. Especially honored were Jan Bishop (YBS Women’s Ministry leader), Teri Jarmon (YBS), Joyce Jones (YBS), and Diane Pestes, Oregon Conference women’s ministries office secretary.
Williams’ presentation, “Speaking Up with a Holy Boldness,” was insightful and dynamic as she led the congregation through an in-depth study of the theme Bible text. Her humor and teaching style once again confirmed her popularity as a speaker both in the U. S. and abroad.
Before speaking again in the evening, Williams held a question and answer session that permitted everyone to hear about some of the opportunities God has placed before her to witness and share the gospel.
The event was attended by men and women from the Portland Metro area, as well as many who traveled from the Oregon coast and southwestern Washington. One attendee was overheard saying, “I’ve only been an Adventist a short time, so I haven’t been able to attend many gatherings planned especially for women. I really enjoyed the program today. I hope there’ll be more of these!”
