Speaker

Dwight K. Nelson

Since 1983, Dwight Nelson has served as lead pastor of the Pioneer Memorial Church on the campus of Andrews University. He preaches on the “New Perceptions” telecast, teaches at the theological seminary and has written some books, including The Chosen. He and his wife, Karen, are blessed with two married children and 2 granddaughters.

As simple as 1-2-3. As easy as A-B-C. Yes, but also as hard as . . . Unless, that is, the passion of the Christ has indeed worked its miracle in us.

More In This Series

03/27/2004
In a garden humanity's hope was dashed, and in a garden revived again. What does the garden teach us about His passion? What does it hold for us and call us to?
04/03/2004
The movie was bloody. The reality even worse. Why the fixation on blood in both the movie and the Bible?
04/10/2004
Physical blood and gore of Christ's passion were the veneer on the face of the greater trauma. The horrendous suffering transcended anything experienced before or after. What was it, and what did it mean?
04/17/2004
Parallel to its wondrous gift runs its enormous demands. What does the cross of Christ demand of us?
04/24/2004
We can participate in the passion. It's both exciting and challenging. Becoming engaged, we discover that the far side of the world is not as far away as it sounds.
05/08/2004
Does Christ's passion have anything to teach us about pacifism? When He was hostilely seized that night, what did Jesus do? Confronted with our global tensions today, what would Jesus do?
05/15/2004
You've heard about the seven last words of Christ. But have you ever heard about the six last words of God? They may be among the most important words you will ever hear. Talk about hope!
06/05/2004
A call for a not-so-surprising, but oh so comprehensive, response to the passion of the Christ. But then, wouldn't we expect the message of the cross to be at least as practical as it is theological?

Memorial Service of Erich Bekowies

We will celebrate the life of long-time Pioneer member Erich Bekowies on Sunday, August 9, at 11:00 AM, in the Pioneer sanctuary.

We pray the comfort of Jesus for Karen and their children Wendy Eberhardt, Michael and families. “Even so, come, Lord Jesus."

Love on the Move

Over the summer and fall of 2019 Pioneer underwent significant physical renovation—including a new roof and a major Sanctuary makeover. During the same time congregation leaders engaged in multiple conversations about our missional renovation—how does a faith community like Pioneer seriously engage and impact the people around us for Christ? From this dialogue emerged a fresh new expression of our Pioneer mission: "Love on the Move."
