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.

The Board of Trustees of Zion Bible College in Haverhill, Massachusetts, has announced that Dr. David Arnett has been selected as the school's new president-elect.

Arnett is currently serving as the vice president for Academic Affairs (Chief Academic Officer) at Central Bible College in Springfield, Missouri, as well as professor of Homiletics, Pastoral Ministries, Theology and Bible. He holds a BA degree from Central Bible College and an MA and D. Min. from the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary.

Having served in churches in New Mexico, Illinois, Wisconsin and Missouri, Arnett has also planted eight churches and a Christian Academy. He travels extensively preaching and teaching. His wife Kathy is currently serving as the executive director for Alumni Relations for CBC.

"My wife and I are excited about this opportunity as it follows the call of God on my life - to train and prepare ministers, missionaries and Pentecostal workers for the local church," Arnett says. "Zion has a beautiful campus and has potential for expansion and growth coupled with a vision to reach the world."

Arnett will follow current president, Dr. Charles Crabtree. Crabtree, the former assistant general superintendent of the Assemblies of God, announced earlier this year that he will retire at the end of the 2012-2013 school year. Since his election as president four years ago, Crabtree has led in doubling the school's enrollment from 200 to 400 students and is preparing to add a master's degree program. "I must give credit to President Charles Crabtree," Arnett says. "He has done an amazing job in his tenure."

The inauguration of Dr. Arnett will take place in conjunction with ZBC's graduation day, May 10, 2013, at Zion Bible College.
