The Minnesota Twin Cities African Camp Meeting convenes each July. This year marked the 10-year anniversary for African camp meeting, and it was celebrated on Sabbath with special dedicatory prayers offered by Dr. Carlton Byrd from Breath of Life Ministries. This year’s camp meeting brought a record crowd, with a Sabbath attendance of nearly 3,000.
The 2019 TCACM had nine speakers who presented on different topics. The topics focused on four specific areas:
Preaching: Dr. Baraka Muganda, former General Conference youth director, shared the daytime sermons, and Dr. Byrd conducted a nightly evangelistic campaign.
Teaching: Pastor Leakey Nyaberi led a Bible study, Pastor Karen Lewis taught a sanctuary message, Pastor Michael Sims and Elder Joshua Ongoro championed a message about stewardship, and Sister Lenda George and Dinah Monyancha taught about family life.
Healing: Sister Deborah Ogeto presented a health program that affirmed Biblical principles of well-
being of the whole person.
Discipling: Nineteen souls gave their lives to Jesus during a baptism on Sabbath.
The children’s ministries also had a vibrant, weeklong program with rotation stations focusing on Bible study, health, crafts, nature, games and outreach.
We thank God for the 2019 TCACM, which was led by a team of board members under the chairmanship of Pastor Eric Mokua. The 2019 TCACM was one of the best camp meetings we have held.
