Dear Southwest Region Conference Family:
The month of August has come, and ministry in the great Southwest Region Conference is alive and well! My family and I have had the privilege of visiting churches and members throughout our conference territory, and we’ve been elated to see that God’s word is still being preached, individuals are still accepting Jesus as their personal Savior, and souls are still being baptized! Praise the Lord!
Our emphasis on: 1) Evangelism, 2) Adventist Education, 3) Media and Digital Expansion, and 4) Youth and Young Adult Engagement and Ministry is being seen, felt, and heard!
For evangelism, numerous evangelistic series, English and Spanish-speaking, are in process right now, and countless campaigns will be held this fall. We’re happy to announce that in collaboration with Breath of Life Television Ministries and Adventist World Radio (AWR), we will have major public evangelistic campaigns in Houston, TX this fall! Yours truly, Dr. Carlton P. Byrd, will preach the word of God for the English campaign; Pastor Eddie Canales of AWR will preach the word of God in our Spanish campaign. Several musical artists will share their ministry, and Bible Workers and church members alike will extend the love of God through prayer and Bible Study! For a complete listing of evangelistic campaigns for the second half of 2021 in our conference territory, please click here.
With Adventist Education, our 2021-2022 school year has begun, and we’re seeing an increase in our conference-wide student enrollment! Also, one of our schools, Applegate Adventist Christian Academy in Round Rock, TX, has opened its doors to a newly renovated school facility! Congratulations to our Principal, Mrs. Ingrid Stanley, and Applegate Adventist Junior Academy! Please know that it’s not too late to enroll your child(ren) in one of our schools. If it matters to you what your child’s teacher believes, and you’re seeking to raise “G” rated kids in an “R” rated world, I appeal to you to contact our Conference Department of Education at 214.943.4491 and enroll your child(ren).
