ACTS church planting module 1
The Northern California Conference hosted the North American Division Evangelism Institute (NADEI) module 1 training for church planters at Leoni Meadows May 3-5. These intensives (6 hours of instruction/group sessions, etc. per day) were attended by leaders from British Columbia (via Zoom due to travel restrictions), Nevada-Utah, Northern California and Oregon Conferences. This is the first of 4 modules for this West Coast church planting initiative. Some have asked, “Why plant churches when we have so many to take care of as it is?” The answers: We have a Biblical mandate to take the gospel to every people, church planting (with various modalities) is one way to help do so, and currently our established churches have not entered several un-entered areas within our own territory. Many other reasons were given from the Bible, Ellen White’s writings and Early Adventist history, but overall the mandate of Matthew 28 remains before us: Go – make disciples! The next module will be in August, so please pray for the respective Conferences endeavoring to take the gospel to their part of the field. Please see the ACTS church planting document for an overview of what we covered. Below are some pictures from module 1. Click HERE to download the document.
