Edmonton Evangelism Begins April 24

Bill Santos, speaker for It Is Written Canada, kicks off an innovative evangelistic thrust in Edmonton on April 24.  The meetings for the first weekend will be held at the Mayfield Inn.  After the first weekend, local pastors and laypersons will continue the series in ten different locations in the Edmonton area.

Alberta Ministerial Secretary, Pastor Larry Hall says "This is a creative approach to evangelism.  We need to try a variety of approaches to reach the people in our large cities."  Alberta Conference President, Mark Johnson, says "We need to reach out in new and untried ways at the same time that we conduct familiar evangelistic series.  There are so many people who need to get ready to see Jesus and we must continually look for new and effective means which are consistent with our beliefs that will permit us to present the gospel message."

With meeting locations throughout the city, it is hoped that interested persons will find a location near home and work which will meet their needs.  This sort of coordinated evangelistic activity involving the entire community has brought together the area pastors for weeks of planning and preparation discussions.

These evangelistic messages, reviewing the fundamental beliefs of the Adventist faith, are an excellent opportunity to invite friends, neighbors, co-workers and family to join us for a review of the Great Teachings of the Bible.

For further information contact any Edmonton area Seventh-day Adventist Church, pastor or the Alberta Conference office.
