A look at A Brief History of Christian Ordination, presented by Darius Jankiewicz, on Friday evening, January 23, at the Loma Linda University Church, during a weekend series of presentations on the subject of women's ordination.

Malibu, California church plant


Pray for the Malibu, Calif. church plant. A nurse and her husband who were visiting the wealthy Malibu community, could not find a Seventh-day Adventist Church so decided to start one. Every weekend the church plant sets up for church in a local gymnasium. The church has grown tremendously.

Learn how they make connections with people in the community.
