The Wichita Convocation held last January in Wichita, Kansas, was a remarkable event that brought together people from different churches and communities to experience spiritual growth and renewal. The guest speaker, Dr. Joseph Kidder, a beloved professor from the Theological Seminary at Andrews University, delivered a series of powerful messages that left a lasting impact on the congregation.
Friday night’s service, held at the Three Angels Church, was particularly inspiring as Dr. Kidder shared his personal story and insights from God’s Word. The congregation was moved by his powerful testimony and his ability to connect with the audience at a personal level. On Sabbath, the services were held at the Wichita South Church, where many of the church members from surrounding churches were in attendance.
One of the most inspiring aspects of the convocation was seeing how all the churches came together to provide a unique, inspiring and representative service. It was not just a weekend of spiritual blessing but also a time to come together as one people. The presence of the Hispanic churches, with their youth leading out in worship during Sabbath school, was a strong indication of the diversity and inclusiveness of the event.
The Wichita Convocation provided an opportunity to learn from an inspiring presenter, to share in worship with others from different churches, and to experience a sense of belonging in the service of God. The weekend offered a powerful reminder of the importance of coming together in faith, hope and love, and of the transformative power of God’s Word in our lives.
