From Sleeping on the Church-steps to Singing in the Pews ~ Journey of Rudolph St. Clair Knight ~ St. Croix, VI ~ August, 2017

POSTED: 07 Aug 2017

Rudolph St. Clair Knight, a former homeless man who slept on the steps of a Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) Church in Frederiksted, St. Croix, for one and a half years, now celebrates the victory he has received since accepting the saving grace of God. “God is great and he provides all your needs. When you have Jesus you're contented, you don't need anything else. He works in his time and the more we acknowledge that is the more faith that we gain,” were the words of an excited and emotional Rudolph as he recounted his journey in life which has left him with no earthly possession except Jesus. While growing up in New York, USA, Rudolph attended the Bronx SDA Church on Washington Avenue. After the death of his God-fearing mother, he succumbed to thirty years of drugs, achohol, and living on the streets, always seeking to make life better, as he expressed, “I was using the wrong method and all I tried . . . did not work.” .

Cell Groups Ministry Positively Impacts Growth of Hispanic Congregations ~ St. Maarten ~ May, 2017

POSTED: 26 Jul 2017

On Sabbath, June 10, 2017, Pastor Marcos Salas and members of the New Bethany Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) celebrated and reflected on the leadings of God in the life of their congregation. For the last two years, the “cell groups” ministry among the Hispanic community has been the engine of church growth, on St. Maarten. The North Caribbean Conference (NCC) has the largest Hispanic population in the Caribbean Union with congregations on five of the islands which comprise the NCC. While this population of the NCC has grown appreciably over the years, more ways were sought to impact this community. In 2015, the NCC extended a call to Pastor Marcos Salas of the Venezuela Union to pastor the New Bethany SDA Church. He has been working alongside an invigorated congregation to continue and strengthen its “cell groups” ministry. Pastor Salas shared his passion for evangelism, “Relationships are at the heart of the gospel. God, who is himself “relationship”, calls us into a relationship with one another and with Him. In our context, these relationships are best developed through small groups. What I am seeking to do is to improve the relationship with each other and with God. God has been leading and I give thanks to Him for all He is doing. It is a strategy that makes the church an evangelistic center. The strategy calls for the pastor to do three things: Inspire the members; educate the members; and organize the members.” .
