Dan Reports Fom Venezuela

42 Young Adults from Venezuela, Chile, and El Salvador

This week the Seminary has been the host site for a History Makers Conference with 42 young adult Christian leaders.  They have been focusing on 8 core issues related to Christian leadership, with a strong immersion in Biblical foundations.  The eight core issues include Passion for the Harvest, Multiplication, Vision, and Leadership.  In addition to teaching times, the participants have benefited from worship experiences, focused prayer time, and intentional periods of silence to help them listen to God's voice.  The students have been deeply impacted through their participation in this conference.  They have spoken of renewed vision, strong encouragement, fresh insight, increased capacity to lead ministry teams, and closer relationships with Jesus and with one another. 

An exciting facet of this Conference from our perspective is that the leadership of the Venezuelan organizational team is made up entirely of pastors who are either currently attending the Wesleyan Seminary of Venezuela, or have already graduated.  This is a testament to the commitment and effectiveness and the pastors who participate in the Seminary training, and we are thankful that the Seminary has played a part in developing these strong leaders.  Thank you for your prayer support and your financial support of the work in Venezuela.  This week, YOU have made a difference in Venezuela, in Chile, and in El Salvador.
