Assemblies of God General Superintendent George O. Wood will be participating in a Network for Women in Ministry (WIM) Town Hall on Wednesday, September 24, at the Cardone Media Center in Springfield, Missouri.

The WIM Town Hall begins at 2:30 p.m. (CDT) before a live audience of Assemblies of God female credential holders. The event will also be live-streamed, with Dr. Wood fielding questions from the live audience as well as the online audience.

Judy Rachels, the chairperson for the Network for Women in Ministry, is hosting the Town Hall and will also moderate the event, which will be an open-topic forum.

"Few leaders in recent history have been as instrumental in lifting the awareness of Women in Ministry as our current general superintendent, Dr. George O. Wood," Rachels says. "On Wednesday he will focus his attention — ear, heart and voice — on Women in Ministry. We want our credentialed women to set aside this time to ask questions, give their perspective, and give ear to Dr. Wood's prophetic voice. Be there!"

"We want to especially encourage female lead pastors to log on and watch the event," explains Stephanie Nance, communications strategist for WIM. "Of the 8,132 female credential holders, 528 of them serve as lead pastors, and that number is growing. We ask that they participate, voicing their questions and unique insights. Dr. Wood wants to hear their voices in the discussions."

"I'm genuinely looking forward to participating in the Women in Ministry Town Hall," Dr. Wood states. "Interacting with AG female pastors, hearing their hearts and concerns, and exploring questions and solutions that other pastors and leaders can benefit from are some of the key purposes of this live event."

Known as an innovator, a friend to everyone and the pastor of one of the first megachurches - Life Center (AG) of Tacoma, Washington - Fulton W. Buntain passed away Saturday evening after an extended illness. He was 86.

Buntain, who retired in 2006, was pastor emeritus at Life Center, having pastored the church for more than 40 years, which currently has a Sunday worship attendance of about 4,000.

Buntain also led the church in building a 750-student K-12 school and a senior housing complex. In addition to creating a weekly television program that ran for 35 years, Buntain was a co-founder of Calcutta Mercy Ministries and a prominent supporter of a holistic ministry in Calcutta, India — consisting of more than 100 schools, over 700 churches, a daily feeding program for 25,000 and a general hospital — founded by his brother and sister-in-law, AG missionaries Mark and Huldah Buntain.

A Canadian by birth, Buntain was ordained by the Assemblies of God on June 9, 1950, and ministered by the creed, "Find a need and meet it." In 2011, Buntain was honored as a "Pillar of Faith" by the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary in Springfield, Missouri.

Buntain is survived by his wife of 60 years, Lorraine Buntain; three children, Michelle (Tim) Cox of Tacoma, Kathi (Greg) Hardcastle of Miami, and Robyn (Rich) Wilkerson of Miami; 14 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. A son, Tim, preceded Buntain in death.

The memorial service and funeral for Buntain will be held at 7 p.m. Friday, June 22, 2012, at Life Center in Tacoma. The service will also be live-streamed from the church's website.
