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.

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.
