Let God’s Word be spoken from the pulpit every Sabbath.
This was the core message given to ministers across the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Inter-America this week. The message was clear as top church leaders reminded ministers of their calling during an online presentation from Miami, Florida, United States, on July 22, 2014.
