Here is a video clip of President Ted Wilson talking about AFCOE (Amazing Facts School of Evangelism). If an independent evangelism training school is the best we have as Adventists, then we had better take a closer look at our Adventist education system. All of our denominational schools should be effective training schools for evangelism. I know for a fact that most, if not all, of our Adventist colleges and universities in the USA are “liberal” arts schools where students are not equipped for a life of evangelism in the common workplace. (Don’t get me wrong, we have great school… but need to refocus the reason we keep the doors open)
Jesus is coming soon and now is the time to stop messing around and get down to business when it comes to training our young people for ministry.
- All of our schools (academies, colleges, and universities) should be Biblically sound and balanced
- The Spirit of Prophecy needs to be used to help structure and guide our educational system
- Mission needs to be the main reason young people attend our schools
- Even degree, may it be theology, education, nursing, business, or graphic design, need to be linked to missions… our young people need to know how to use their degrees to help advance God’s eternal work
- Educational administrators and teachers need to be held accountable to the wonderful truths our Church is built on
Let’s pray that God will work a miracle in our Church. Our Church is in great need of restructuring and mission focus. Our GC president is doing a great job focusing on revival and reformation… now we need to restructure our Church into what God intended it to be in these last days. Whenever possible, please pray for and encourage our Church leaders to stand up to Jesus.
AFCOE is a great evangelism school to attend for training… here is the link AFCOE
