San Antonio, TX–Three dynamic ministry leaders will be guest speakers for successive “Special Orders of the Day,” set for the upcoming Church of God General Assembly in San Antonio.
The 78th General Assembly is an international gathering of the Church of God, scheduled for July 25-29, 2022. The event includes sessions of general business of the 136-year-old denomination, as well as special events, reunion, and worship gatherings. The event is slated to attract thousands of delegates from around the world.
The three ‘Special Order of the Day’ speakers will present at 10:00 am starting on Wednesday to address the General Council, the body of ordained bishops who will be meeting at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.
On Wednesday, July 27, Dr. Mark Rutland, well-known church leader, pastor, and former president of Southern University and Oral Roberts University will address the topic, “Preaching in the Power and the Spirit of Pentecost.” Currently, Rutland is director of the National Institute of Christian Leadership and Global Servants, a missions organization with focused efforts in Ghana and Thailand. He is also a New York Times best-selling author.
On Thursday, July 28, Rev. Larry Stockstill, author, pastor, and founder of Pastors University, will speak on “Five Blessings in 2022.” In 2001, Stockstill began the Surge Project, a church planting model based on mentoring and multiplication. By 2015, over 22,000 small, rural churches had been planted in twelve world zones. Pastors University, founded in 2020, features Stockstill’s top “50 lessons from 50 years.”
A final address will be delivered on Friday, July 29 by Dr. R. C. Hugh Nelson on, “The Urban Harvest.” A member of multiple ministry and medical boards, Bishop Nelson serves as Senior Pastor for the Church of God of East Flatbush in Brooklyn, N.Y., a church he evolved from a single cell church model into a vibrant Urban Ministry Center that is home to more than 1,700 members and ministers to over 2,500 on a weekly basis.
