Inter-America: Church Leaders to Dialogue with Theology Students Across Campuses During Online Event

Seventh-day Adventist Church leaders want to speak to theology students at each of the 12 Adventist universities throughout the Inter-American Division (IAD) territory during an online webcast this week.

The online event will take place from the campus of Montemorelos University in Mexico on Tuesday March 4 starting at 11:00 a.m. (Eastern Time) through the division’s webcast channel.

As pastors step into the field, many will have to relocate to a remote location, lead several congregations and start a family while learning the ropes of ministry, explains Sanchez.

“[It’s crucial] that our pastors know what to expect when they go out there,” he continues, “what is the growth of the church in the IAD, their role as evangelists, their role in motivating members to expand through the church’s small groups ministry, the role of the pastor’s wife and the like.”

The one-and-a-half hour program will include guest speakers, a panel forum, special prayer sessions, and more.

Tune in to watch the live program on Tuesday, March 4, at 11:00 a.m. (ET). The program will be carried in English, Spanish and French at the IAD web channel.
