The popularity of the Assemblies of God Centennial services, held August 5-10, were unprecedented for any U.S. Assemblies of God event. Through broadcast, live-stream and simulcast, millions of people tuned in to view the services.

According to Africa's LMTV, more than 40 million viewers tuned in to watch its Centennial broadcasts, while the Spanish network, Unsión, broadcast reached viewers throughout Central and South America. The viewership of the Centennial special on TBN is not known, but TBN reaches millions of viewers each week.

In an effort to join AG churches thorughout the U.S. to the Sunday evening celebration, the Centennial finale featured a live simulcast. 

"We had more than 1,000 simulcast sites signed up to participate in Sunday evening's celebration service," Dr. George O. Wood, AG general superintendent, says. "This represented an estimated 50,000 participants in addition to the thousands in attendance and those watching by live-stream online."

And the popularity of the services continues. Since the conclusion of the Centennial, thousands of people have viewed or downloaded the services from the archived collection found on the 100.ag.org website.

"There has been a great interest in the archived messages," states Lucas Cornwell, media technology analyst at the AG national offices. "If people want to watch or share these videos, they can do so via the 100.ag.org website." 

Cornwell says that a few of the messages receiving strong interest include Sunday evening's concluding service with Dick Brogden, the presentation of The Human Right movement, and the message from South Korea General Superintendent Yong Mok Cho.

Global University, a fully accredited distance education university of the Assemblies of God located in Sprignfield, Missouri, has launched its Berean School of the Bible courses in additional electronic versions in English.  

According to Wade Pettenger, vice president for Information Technology for Global, the university now has Berean School of the Bible courses in multiple digital formats, including the Logos Digital Library System, Kindle and e-Pub format.

"The new e-Pub format allows our students to study a Berean course on virtually any device, including smart phones and tablets," says Pettenger. "This includes both iOS and Android devices, which all support the software for reading these courses."

Pettenger adds that depending on the type of software used, students can use bookmarks, navigate the table of contents, highlight sections of content, access Bible passages, correct self-diagnostic quizzes and make personal notes.

Enrolled students can access the new e-Pub courses on Global University's mobile website.

According to Vice Provost Randy Hedlun, all but three courses out of the 27 ministerial courses are available in these electronic formats. Dr. Hedlun adds that publishing these electronic courses is yet another effort to continue providing accessibility to Global University students.
