BC Conference Press Release - December 11, 2019

Dear BC Conference Constituency Family:

Last evening Elder Wesley Torres informed the BC Conference Board of Directors that he had submitted his resignation from the position of SDACC VP for Administration/Executive Secretary to Elder Mark Johnson, SDACC President. According to him, this decision was taken after a deep soul searching and several sincere prayers to God. He adds that he “struggled and wrestled” with the Lord for the last three months about this matter and this was probably the most difficult decision in his almost 35 years in ministry.

In his own words, “One of the two main reasons for this decision was based on personal and family needs related to this call. Secondly, I was also having a very difficult time with the idea of leaving the BC Conference mid-term while very important projects were incomplete. My heart was torn, and I did not find the inner peace to move forward with this call to the SDACC. Timing was the issue that I was facing with this situation”.

The Torres family kindly thanks the BC Conference members for their continued prayers, amazing support, and for the Christian love shown to them through the years. They pray that we all continue to serve the Lord as a Team in our beautiful BC Conference.

A WEEKEND TO REMEMBER!  

Victoria Adventist Church
 
This past weekend the Victoria Church celebrated a Farewell weekend of there Church building. They have been worshipping in this same building since 1947.
 
They will now be worshipping at Lakeview Christian School until a new Church building is built.
 
Pray for God's Blessings as this Church congregation looks to the future of building a new Church facility.

PENTICTON ADVENTIST CHURCH
 
FROM OUR HEARTS
 
What began as a brainchild to help the less fortunate during the most difficult time of the year has grown to what many local leaders consider the best Christmas happening in Penticton.

 Talented musicians from both the Penticton Seventh-day Adventist church and other denominations volunteer
their time and talents to produce the From Our Hearts This Christmas concert. Though no admission is charged, attendees are encouraged to make donations of
money and/or non-perishable food items for the Salvation Army Food Bank.

 After the concert, attendees are invited into the
fellowship hall for a chance to socialize while
enjoying hot drinks and delectable baked treats.

For the concert, the church sanctuary and side rooms are usually filled to capacity. But it is important to come early, as both parking lots are quickly filled, and, though the church is on a corner and has frontage along both streets,
parking spots there are also soon filled up.
