​Inter-America Division Leaders Connect with Local Elders

The Seventh-day Adventist Church in Inter-America continues its online series to reach its constituents. This time top leaders at the Inter-American Division (IAD) headquarters in Miami, Florida, expect to engage more than 50,000 church elders spread across the territory during a live program on Saturday, February 22, 2014.

“We want to motivate our church elders to continue pursuing a personal spiritual revival to be more effective in the congregation they minister to,” said Hector Sanchez, IAD ministerial secretary. “We want to highlight the importance of the church elder, his or her commitment to God, to the home, church, and community.”

The one-and-a-half hour program will be a time of reflection, inspiration and motivation as part of the church’s continued education activities during the year of the non-formal education focus throughout the IAD.

Those interested in the project can tune in to watch the live program on Sabbath, February 22, 2014, at 4:30 p.m. Miami Time. The program will be carried in English, Spanish and French at the IAD web channel at
