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.

changing, IAD leaders are interested in speaking to the pastors who will lead
the church tomorrow,” says Pastor Hector Sanchez, ministerial secretary for the
church in Inter-America and organizer of the event. “Church leaders want this
precious resource that the church in the IAD has been educating to know more
about the realities of the pastoral work, what they will step into as they
begin their ministry.”

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

“[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.
