Centennial logo

With the U.S. Assemblies of God Centennial celebration two weeks away, being held August 5-10, in Springfield, Missouri, registration for the event continues to build. Yet, even though it's the U.S. Assemblies of God celebrating, the overseas AG members are coming in significant numbers to join in the celebration as well as participate in the World AG Congress, being held concurrently.

According to Sheila Mixer, AG Convention Services Group registration coordinator, for those who have pre-registered, so far more than 43 percent are coming from overseas, representing 118 countries!

Mixer expects that by the time the Centennial events begin, there could be as many as 2,000 or more overseas AG representatives attending the events, which include the Centennial celebration, Global Church Planting Summit, and the World AG Congress.

"It's exciting to see such enthusiastic support from Assemblies of God churches overseas," says U.S. AG General Superintendent George O. Wood. "This gathering will truly be a global, once-in-a-lifetime experience."

Wood says there will be nothing like attending the event in person — worshipping God and experiencing the presence of the Holy Spirit while standing side-by-side with AG brothers and sisters from around the world - and he encourages all AG members to make every effort to attend. However, for those who are unable to attend, all of the Centennial services will be live-streamed from the event website.

The AG Centennial is being commemorated through a new book that identifies 100 significant moments in AG history. Titled "Moments That Inspire Us to Greater Things," the book is a collection of 100 stories that demonstrate God working in and through the people who make up the Assemblies of God. Included in the book are key missions stories — missions that have resulted in more than 64 million AG overseas adherents, and whose representatives are now coming to help the U.S. Assemblies of God celebrate its centennial.

Virtually . . . possible!

Fri, 16 Mar 2012 - 12:27 PM CST

The Internet can be one of the single greatest sources of degradation. However, as the Pentecostal Evangel office recently learned, it can also be an effective virtual missionary.

Every week, the Evangel offers online readers the opportunity to win a book and a free six-month subscription to the magazine. Recently, the winner of the contest raised eyebrows - it was a pastor from a sensitive country - a country where missionaries cannot openly go.

"In the Assemblies of God, missionaries often work with local leaders and focus on raising up indigenous churches," says Ken Horn, Pentecostal Evangel editor. "In sensitive countries, sometimes a Christian leader's greatest resource for outside support and inspiration is through the Internet."

Horn says that it's inspiring to realize that a pastor in very difficult ministry circumstances is accessing the Pentecostal Evangel online.  After consulting with AG World Missions, the book, Q&A: Conversations with 50 Inspiring People, is being sent to the pastor along with the subscription to the magazine.

"Churches and individuals across the United States and around the world - even in the most sensitive countries - have come to realize what a spiritually enriching resource the 'Pentecostal Evangel' is," Horn says. "My prayer is that every church would bless and inspire their congregation with a subscription."
