The series was the product of a collaborative effort between Dr. Telemaque, the Inter American Division, Caribbean Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists and the North Caribbean Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. Several union missions and union conferences of the IAD engaged in evangelistic activities to model excellent ministry delivery during 2022, as part of their contribution to the centennial celebration of the IAD which was organized as a division territory in 1922. Dr. Telemaque has been instrumental in planning all the derivatives of the Hope Series and was the main organizer for the Footprints of Hope Evangelistic Series which featured the international evangelist Pastor Glen O. Samuels.
“The pandemic skewed many people’s views of reality. They tended to narrow their understanding of reality to the here and now with its anxieties, frustrations, and uncertainties. There is a deep longing in the human heart for a preferred future in someone,” said Pastor Telemaque. “Hope Beyond Evangelistic Series pointed its audience to a brighter future in Christ. The series gave fresh glimpses of Jesus to inspire its audiences to look beyond their present realities to a new reality in Christ. The glory and goodness of Jesus inspire gratitude, praise, and hope. These outcomes were echoed in the theme songs, ‘Goodness of God Keeps Running After Me’ and ‘Grace is Greater than All Our Sins.’”
The number of viewers on YouTube, Facebook and other social media platforms increased from scores to hundreds across the North Caribbean Conference, the rest of the IAD, and beyond.
