Brazil's IPCC 28th General Convention/14th Annual Missions Convention:
By Clyde Hughes:
IPCC 28th GENERAL CONVENTION/14th ANNUAL MISSIONS CONVENTION, Arapiraca, Brazil – Field Secretary for South America, Damron Bradshaw along with Linda and I, attended a great General Convention of the International Pentecostal Church of Christ held in Brazil in September. The event was held in the north instead of their own Convention Center in support of northern churches. Since the Convention Center has been such a success, they now have plans to build a second one in the north. The center was packed for both the business sessions and the evening missions services. Members are checked in and out and must attend 75% of the 3½ whole days of business before being allowed to vote.
History was made during the meeting. To reflect their growing international influence and to align itself more with us, the body voted to change the name to IPCC (IPCI in Portuguese.) Since the 90’s, the IPCC has doubled the number of nations involved in, but the Brazilian church is responsible for most of those. Plans have been made for an outreach in Asia as well. Daniel Silva was resoundingly re-elected for another four years as General Superintendent. We have reciprocal voting rights for leaders in their convention. Brother Bradshaw was credited by some with influencing the name change. Bishop Truelove’s family visited in August since the Church Leadership Conference prevented him attending this convention. Frank Angié was prevented by legal concerns surrounding the loss of his father. It is critical that more IPCC people visit and build relationships as part of the historic relationship within the IPCC. From the northeast, we flew south to Sao Paulo to show Linda the amazing Convention Center. It was her first missions trip outside of North America. The 10 flights we took were a bit taxing. Of the 15 visitors to IPCC missions fields this year, none were paid from out of Global Missions funds.
Open Door Pentecostal Felllowship, Carson City, MI:
I was privilege to preach at the 7th Anniversary of Open Door Pentecostal Fellowship in Carson City, Michigan. The church was started by Rev. Durwood and Wilma Sawyer in 2011. Durwood Sawyer passed away 8 months after founding the church. Larry Austin served as Pastor immediately following Durwood’s passing. After Larry Austin served as Pastor for a couple of years, Timothy Thompson served as Pastor for a couple of years. Now Larry and Carolyn Austin serve as Pastors once again. The church is doing very well and is increasing in attendance. After service there was a wonderful time of fellowship over a delicious meal that was prepared.
Living Word Family Worship Center, Mt. Morris, MI:
I preached at Living Word Family Worship center where Jesse England serves as Pastor earlier this month. I was encouraged to see many new faces at the church during the Sunday night service. There is an excitement in the air for what God is doing in the church. The Pastor has ask me to preach a 4 night revival in early December. Please continue to keep the church in prayer.
Landmark IPCC, Millersville, MD:
It was a blessing to go to the wonderful North East District a couple of weeks ago. It was encouraging to be greeted by the wonderful people of Landmark IPCC in Millersville, Maryland. Paula Hoke Ludlum is serving as Pastor of Landmark IPCC and is doing a wonderful job. It was also encouraging to see that the church fellowships with other churches in the area. Another church came to the service where I ministered. God always blesses unity.
Elohim Church, Herndon, VA:
I preached at a potential new church of the IPCC. It was the Elohim Church of Herndon, Virginia where Luciano Portillo serves as Pastor. The messages I preached were well received by everyone that was present. After the service I discussed with the congregation about coming into the IPCC. It was a great meeting. Pray for the church!!!
Iglesia Misionera 'Gloria A Christo' in Leesburg, VA --- North East District QC:
Pastor Javier Canenguez is doing a great job as Pastor of Iglesia Misionera ‘Gloria A Christo’ of Leesburg, VA. I was blessed to preach at 2 of their services: at a Thursday night service and the Saturday QC. The messages were well received. The church has prayer meetings on Saturday from 4:30AM (that’s right ---AM) to 8AM. The church also has services on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday night, Sunday morning and Sunday night. The church is on the move! The North East QC was a blessing as another minister, Luciano Barbosa, was received into the IPCC as an IPCC Evangelist. Luciano is from Brazil. Continue to pray for the North East district.
Tri-State QC at Kingdom Hearts in Chillicothe, OH:
By Sis. Trudy Wright
We received a very warm greeting and welcome at Kingdom Hearts church tonight. We had a very good pastor's meeting and business session of the quarterly conference. The worship was anointed and provided a wonderful atmosphere for worship. The message preached by Sis. Kathy Salyer was challenging and encouraging. We greatly appreciate the five churches represented tonight. We want to thank our host pastors, Pastor Kyle and Sis. Lynette Coriell, and those of the Kingdom Hearts church for the time of fellowship and refreshments afterward. Let's continue to pray one for another and encourage one another.
North Central QC at Open Door Fellowship in Carson City, MI:
The North Central District QC was held at Open Door Pentecostal Fellowship in Carson City where Larry Austin is Pastor. The QC was chaired by the new District Overseer, Lonnie Truelove. Bro. Lonnie Truelove also preached a great message that evening. Afterwards there was a wonderful meal prepared by the members of Open Door.
Revival at House of Refuge in Paintsville, KY:
I had the privilege of preaching a 3 night revival at House of Refuge in Paintsville, Kentucky last week. House of Refuge is pastored by Mike and Doris Blevins. At least 6 churches where represented during the revival which included: 3 Mountain District IPCC churches (House of Refuge, Light of Christ, and New Life Worship Center). God moved mightily during the revival. I had great fellowship with Mike and Doris Blevins during my time there. I also got to spend some time with Pastors Terry and Tammie Lykins of Light of Christ at the New Hope Christian Academy that they operate. During the chapel service at New Hope, Marlana VanHoose sang. Marlana sang “How Great Thou Art” at the Inaugural Presidential church service that Donald Trump attended. It was during that service and her singing that touched the United States' 1st Lady, Melania Trump. It was a blessing to be in the Mountain District.
Scioto Furnace IPCC, Scioto Furnace, OH:
It is always a blessing to attend Scioto Furnace where faithful IPCC minister, Cline McCallister is Pastor. The presence of the Lord moved strongly in the service. In all my times talking with Pastor Cline, I can tell he is a man that loves God and loves the word. Keep Pastor Cline in prayer; as he will be having knee surgery next week.
