Mission Values Priorities

We Believe

God is love, power, and splendor—and God is a mystery. His ways are far beyond us, but He still reaches out to us. God is infinite yet intimate, three yet one,
all-knowing yet all-forgiving.

Story by Mountain View Conference Staff

The Mountain View Conference (MVC) elected Mike Hewitt as president at their Executive Committee meeting today.

Hewitt has served in MVC for a year as executive secretary and ministerial director. Larry Boggess, former MVC president, recently retired.

“He loves soul-winning and people, and he can identify with many of our pastors who have come from a different profession than pastoring,” said Boggess of Hewitt.

Hewitt previously served as pastor of Potomac Conference’s Lynchburg (Va.) church.  He and spent 11-and-a-half years as a pastor in the Potomac Conference, and worked as a police officer for 10 years.

Brian Hernandez (pictured), a 13-year-old member of Potomac Conference’s Seneca Valley Spanish church in Gaithersburg, Md., stood by the baptismal tank of Alexis Argueta last Sabbath, as his eighth-grade classmate from Gaithersburg Middle School publicly accepted Christ through baptism. Argueta made a decision for Christ after Hernandez introduced him to Jesus and gave him Bible studies.
