The Human Right

The Human Right movement was launched this week during the 2014 Assemblies of God National Youth Convention and Fine Arts Festival being held July 28-August 1 in Columbus, Ohio.

"The Human Right is to know Jesus and the movement is to make Him known," explains Heath Adamson, senior director for AG Youth Ministries. "This is the beginning of the launch that will continue through the Centennial and reverberate for years to come as we summon the world to come alongside this generation of students to fulfill the original mission of the Assemblies of God, which is the greatest evangelization the world has ever known."

Adamson says that during this week, the focus is on seeking the presence of the Lord and a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit on this generation in light of Acts 1:8.

Friday evening's service from the 2014 Assemblies of God National Youth Convention and Fine Arts Festival is being live-streamed online. The live streaming of the evening service begins at 7 p.m. EDT. Tuesday's service, featuring the launch of The Human Right, is located in the archives section, found by clicking on the "Videos" link to the right of the viewing area.

"The evening services have been phenomenal," Adamson says. "The presence of the Lord has been the focus of our prayers, and I'm delighted that God has continued to surprise us with His rich presence. Students are encountering the presence of God as they are being urged to abide in Christ, abandon everything, and advocate for the gospel."

This year's national theme for youth has been "Limitless," which, in part, urges students not to limit what God can do through them. Speakers at this year's convention include Greg Steir, president of Dare 2 Share Ministries; Scotty Gibbons, AG national youth strategist; and Jason Frenn, Power to Change ministries.

As dozens of Fine Arts Festival categories are going on simultaneously, live streaming of the FAF preliminary performances is not offered. However, during Friday evening's celebration service, which will be live streamed, many of the Fine Arts Festival Merit Award winners will be performing.

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."
