Story by LaTasha Hewitt

The Allegheny East Conference (AEC) family mourns the recent death of Pastor Beverly Miles. Prior to his call to ministry, Miles served as an elder for several years at Miracle Temple Church (now Miracle City) in Baltimore, Md. He was a member of the AEC Executive Committee from 1996-2001.

Miles completed his Master of Divinity degree at Howard University in Washington, D.C., and became pastor of the Serenity church in Martinsburg, W.Va., in 2012. In January 2017, he transitioned to the Berea Temple church in Baltimore, where he served as assistant pastor.

"We Can't Live Like This"

Leroy and Lois Peters’ roller coaster experience with mental illness started when their son, Leroy, “snapped” following a humiliating incident while stationed at Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota. Lois remembers the moment she and her husband learned that something was terribly wrong.

Story by Adventist Christian Fellowship and Philadelphia Central Korean church staff

The majority of Adventist young adults—approximately 70 percent by one estimate—do not attend Seventh-day Adventist institutions of higher learning. During the recent Philadelphia Mission Trip event, more than 70 young adults, mostly from the Columbia Union, worked to reach these and other students at Bryn Mawr College, Temple University and Drexel University, schools in the Philadelphia area.
