Hundreds recently attended the “Testify” weekend convention hosted by the Columbia Union chapter of ASI (Adventist-laymen’s Services & Industries). The theme emphasized the impact that Adventists can have for the kingdom of God.
The weekend included an inspirational tour of the updated Ellen White exhibit in Silver Spring, Md.; and numerous presentations and seminars to help the Adventist professionals grow in their outreach. During the convention, Columbia Union ASI, led by Emanuel Pelote, also rededicated itself to helping its member businesses grow into outposts for the Lord. This year they will develop a course in Biblical Entrepreneurship and a new, online business and service directory.
