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.

God is a child at heart. Even more than that, He was once a child in body as well. What does that mean for those who follow Him, and the children He has placed in their care?

Pioneer Veterans

Adventist active-duty military personnel are eligible to receive a free devotional book, courtesy of the National Service Organization and Adventist Chaplaincy Ministries. Single service members, as well as other employee categories, may choose one free devotional. Married service members may choose two devotional books. You may order these online in your personal profile here at AdventistsonUniform.org. There will be more information about the profile next week.
Our National Service Organization, a subsidiary of Adventist Chaplaincy Ministries offers a free devotional book annually.

To be eligible for NSO-sponsored complimentary devotional books, you must be a Seventh-day Adventist Church member in an Adventist church in the North American Division and in one of the following military-related categories:

  • All North American Division members who are active-duty military stationed overseas for a year or longer
  • DoD civilian employee of the military services stationed overseas
  • DoDEA teacher or principal stationed overseas
  • Military exchanges (AAFES, NEX, etc.) worker overseas
  • Government contractor overseas
  • A spouse living overseas with their non-Adventist military spouse

Keep our service people in prayer. They face some difficult decisions and endure hardships daily and need God's wisdom and protection. Have you any military family members or friends that we can include in our prayers? Send their names to jjnorthjr@gmail.com.
