The Revelation Today Seminar

Home > Latest Updates > 2014 Articles >

Comox Valley Seventh-day Adventist Church joined the live telecast of Revelation Today Seminar with IIW Speaker, Elder Ron Halvorsen. 

The first ten evenings were presented in a local hotel venue and were attended by up to 20 people each night, including persons who had seen the newspaper ads as well as friends and family of members. 

The last several meetings were presented in the Church, including two presentations on Sabbath. 

The series ended with a celebration as one person decided to accept Jesus and join the church.

The Comox Valley Seventh-day Adventist Church have an ongoing desire to reach out into our community with the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

Along with our weekly feeding programs (an ADRA Community Services Sunday Pancake and a Share-A-Sandwich program where we partner with the local "Cold Weather Ministry" to provide sandwiches and contact) we also have an enjoyable monthly "Smooth Angel Cafe" where our active music 'evangelists'-- Larry and Karen Baillie-- would coordinate the program on the last Sunday of every month. 

Smooth Angel Cafe is an outreach to local musicians and people who want to experience "good Christian fun" while finding out what the Comox Seventh-day Adventist Community is all about. 

The bigger vision is to host a Gospel Music Concert once a quarter. 

The Revelation Today Seminar was part of the total outreach plan for the year.

The warmth and approach of Elder Ron Halvorsen was very helpful in opening hearts and minds to more learning about the prophesies that are unfolding in these end-times.  

Recent and long-term attendees and members responded positively to Halvorsen's call for a compassionate, loving presence in our community.

Besides the baptism and the probability of more to come as a result of this series, there was a desire to do a line-by-line study of The Book of Revelation that grew out of this and other Revelation/Prophecy seminars that we have attended.
