Jovenes predicadores y bautizados

HIstoria de Winston Simpson

Cuando planificamos una campaña Evangelística, pensamos en comisiones, un local y sobre todo en un buen predicador, o un evangelista con experiencia. En el distrito norte de Ohio, específicamente en la Iglesia de Willard el pastor pensó en que era hora de correr riesgos. En lugar de hacer lo tradicional y lo que dice la lógica, debíamos de probar hacer evangelismo con los jóvenes de nuestra Iglesia. Se eligieron siete jóvenes, los cuales nunca habían predicado, pero tenían el deseo de hacerlo en el nombre de nuestro Dios. Los nombres de los jóvenes son: Francisco, Jennifer, Fanny, Aranza, Eiby, Kevin y Emanuel.

Story by Heidi Wetmore

The idea started out as a fun linoleum block printing project. Middle school and high school art teacher, Nancy Rivera, challenged her students to design a Christmas card, then carve the design into a linoleum block, ink it with a roller and finally hand stamp the design onto fine paper. The students personally signed the back of each hand-made Christmas card and intended to give them to special people in their lives.

Wayne Gretzky, the famous and retired Canadian hockey player, is credited with the quote, “You miss 100 percent of the shots you never take.” A corollary to this would be, “People can’t accept an invitation that’s never given.”

All the paths to church membership include some form of Bible study. People need to meet the Jesus we find in the Scriptures and learn the things He taught. It doesn’t need to be complicated or difficult. In fact, Jesus Himself presented important and profound lessons in simple, easy-to-remember stories and illustrations.

What does high school chemistry, summer camp high ropes course, community health fairs and a new boiler for a church heating system have in common? All of them benefit from Ohio Advance.

Ohio Advance (OA), a free-will offering to specifically reach the community and bring people to the Lord, is changing its allocations this year. In December the Ohio Conference Executive Committee voted to allocate funds to outreach and evangelism, secondary education, Camp Mohaven in Danville and church buildings and equipment.

Thirty percent of OA donations will be used for outreach and evangelism programs.
