More than 40 people have been baptized after a Revelation’s and Ancient Discoveries prophecy seminar conducted in Manassas, Va. by evangelist Mark Finley, member of the Living Hope church in Haymarket, Va.“We averaged over 300 in attendance each night,” says Randy Davis, pastor of the Manassas church and one of the coordinators for the event. “By the last Sabbath, 42 people had been baptized in participating churches and we have been following up with 100 others who are interested in Bible studies and/or baptism.”
Five Potomac churches helped coordinate this event as well as others from the Allegheny East conference. “Opening night was so full that we couldn’t all fit in the room,” says Davis. “We ended up changing our schedule to include two meetings per night on the weekends.” Davis reports that approximately 633 individuals attended at least one of the meetings, with half of that number being those who identify as non-Adventist.
Meetings included Finley preaching the powerful gospel message that centered around Jesus and the gospel of love, special musical numbers were performed by various artists and groups and Teenie Finley delivered weekly health talks. Each evening, pastors and Bible workers regularly visited interests.
“This series of meetings has awakened and revived us!” says Davis. “Several members in the participating churches decided to be re-baptized and re-dedicated their lives to Jesus. “It’s brought our area churches closer together as we work together for Jesus. The best part is the harvest that began during the meetings and continues as we follow up from the meetings.”
