Parents of septuplets to speak at Sunday School luncheon

Fri, 16 Feb 2007 - 2:08 PM CST

"Train Up a Child," is this year's theme for the General Council Christian Education and Sunday School Luncheon. Highlighting the theme will be special guest speakers Kenneth and Bobbi McCaughey, parents of the first surviving healthy septuplets in recorded history.

With eight children (septuplets plus an older sibling), the McCaugheys (pronounced "McCoys") have learned to rely on God to meet their family's needs, and when asked about their challenges, the McCaugheys are quick to give God credit for their success.

"Their testimony as Christian believers is such an amazing and strong story," says Wes Bartel, director of the Assemblies of God national Sunday School Department. Bartel recalls seeing the media coverage after the septuplets birth and being amazed by the way the McCaugheys testified of God's grace, committing to raise their children in such a way that would glorify God.

The McCaugheys have been living in the media spotlight since the birth of their septuplets in November 1997. This extraordinary event has allowed the McCaugheys to publicly attest to God's faithfulness, making headlines in media such as "Newsweek," "LIFE Magazine" and "CNN.com" and appearances on "Dateline NBC," and "Oprah."

Together the McCaugheys have written a book entitled "Seven from Heaven," which appeared on the New York Times Bestseller list, and Bobbi has also written a second book, "Celebrating the Wonders of Motherhood."

This year's Christian Education and Sunday School Luncheon will also honor the 2007 National Sunday School Teacher of the Year Carol McKernan from Evangel Assembly in Evart, Michigan.

The luncheon will be held in the Wabash Ballroom of the Indiana Convention Center on Thursday, August 9, from 12-1:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 and are available on the General Council order form.

AG World Missions Offers Open Invitation to World Prayer Meeting

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 - 4:34 PM CST

Assemblies of God missionaries, Skyping in from around the world, will share their testimonies and urgent prayer needs during a focused time of seeking the Lord through the global online World Prayer Meeting coming in May. Recorded live by Cornerstone Church in Bowie, Maryland, with host pastor Mark Lehman, this annual hour-long event begins at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 28 - Ascension Day.

"As we join together in prayer, we anticipate answers to prayer and breakthroughs among unreached peoples who have yet to hear the hope of the gospel," says AGWM Communications Director Randy Hurst. "In 2013, more than 30 percent of AGWM personnel were involved in ministry to unreached people groups. That number continues to grow."

The World Prayer Meeting's first webcast begins at 7 p.m. Eastern Standard Time and available online immediately thereafter.

"Prayer for divine intervention and empowerment in our mission is not an option: It is an absolute necessity," says Greg Mundis, AGWM executive director. "We will only accomplish God's purposes and the specific individual tasks He has for us as a mission if we can marshal a spiritual army of intercessors to pray that God will open doors among the unreached and protect and sustain our missionaries." 

"Individuals are encouraged to participate in this inspiring event," Hurst says, "but if your church has the compatible technical capabilities, please consider projecting the broadcast in the sanctuary and use the prayer meeting in your regular Wednesday evening service."

Jeff Hartensveld, AGWM mobilization director who will be leading the prayer meeting says, "Imagine, if we pray with an urgency to match the times and days we are living in, what the Lord will do!"

To help direct prayers during and following the event, AGWM has created six prayer cards, one from each of the six AGWM geographic regions.

"Each card includes a brief message from the regional director concerning the prayer focus," Hurst explains. "However, if you plan to use these cards in conjunction with the World Prayer Meeting, they must be ordered by May 16." To acquire cards, call (800)-988-6568.

The site of the World Prayer Meeting broadcast is currently being developed, but once the site is ready, the link will be posted on the AGWM home page and in an upcoming AG News release.
