■ RADIO STATION OPPORTUNITY — The FCC has announced that it will open a short "filing window" later this year (probably in October) for nonprofit organizations to file for building FULL POWER noncommercial FM radio stations. This is an opportunity to share the Gospel in communities that may not be repeated soon.
Contact: LifeTalk at 800-775-4673 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
■ WOMEN’S MINISTRIES EMPHASIS DAY WILL BE JUNE 9 — Free program materials are available from AdventSource or from the NAD Women’s Ministries web site at www.nadwm.org.
■ NET 2007: A NEW APPROACH — How do you reach the contemporary and post modern audience? NET 2007 Speaker Mike Tucker and his wife, Gayle, have successfully led their Arlington, Texas church to double their membership in the last nine years, and Tucker plans to use a similar approach as a NET event, which will be viewed for the first time on the Hope Channel. This time, it is suggested that members host the 13 meetings in their homes.
Resource materials have been designed to assist lay members in community outreach.
Contact: www.HeartQuest.info/host for everything you need to know about NET 2007, October 19 - November 3.
■ NEW ADVENTIST PREACHING DVD — “LOVE FOR A LIFETIME: Relationship Secrets From the Life of Ruth” is a 5-part sermon series providing tips and guidelines for developing dating and marriage relationships which will strengthen love for a lifetime. This is a chance to “get acquainted” with Mike Tucker, NET 2007 and Faith for Today speaker, for those who do not know him.
Tucker also provided sermon outlines and a “How To Preach” segment for those who'd like to preach the sermons themselves.
“Love For a Lifetime” can be adapted as a seminar and is an example of the grace-filled sermons that one would hear at the Arlington Church.
Contact: www.acn.info or 800-ACN-1119 to order.
■ “SPEED NETWORKING” FOR ADVENTIST SINGLES at Adventist Single Adult Ministries Convention, July 5-7, in Orlando, Florida. Early bird special registration fee of US$149 has been extended to May 10.
