The Minnesota 2014 Camp Meeting was powerful! The worship hours on both Sabbaths and during the week were moving, filled with powerful spiritual messages. I looked out into the crowd every night and noticed people from every age group. I was moved. I knew God was at work.
The theme song, led by the Morrison family, captured the spirit of the whole camp meeting:
Camp Meeting brings people from across this great Minnesota Conference into one place for worship and fellowship. These are people who want to hear the Blessed Hope. The preachers messages this camp meeting were centered on the fact that Jesus Christ loves us. The speakers and presenters challenged us to know Jesus personally, to love, and serve Him.
The Bible says Jesus is coming again. We were challenged to actively engage in winsome ministries. The Blessed Hope message says, “God loves you, wants to give you everlasting life in Jesus Christ”.
Several attendees where touched by the messages. Here is a sample of their remarks:
“Bradshaw spoke to my heart.”
“The messages were so very relevant.”
“Dr DeRose’s Health Ministry presentation pointed me to the writings of Ellen White in a way that made her make sense.”
“Oh, I wish we all would catch that Advent passion again.”
“I will try meditation, I liked Dr Vine’s approach.”
Maybe the summary statement was from the Ministerial Director of Minnesota Conference, Sherman McCormick who said, “It is evident that the Lord is doing something great in the world we can see it here in this camp meeting.” Sherman was right; I saw men and women line up to sign up to volunteer their services in the 2015 Voice of Prophecy meetings.
The theme of this year’s camp meeting was, “Serving Jesus.”
Let’s go and serve. The Lord’s Word will not fail. Let’s serve this dying world. Let’s live out salvation until we all catch fire for God.
Brian K. Mungandi, Vice President for Administration
