MISSIONARIES AND GUEST SPEAKER
We welcome the following guest speakers and missionaries to our 2012 Missions Convention:
FAITH PROMISE GUEST SPEAKER: BRAD ROSENBERG
Lead Pastor, Tri-County Assembly of God, Fairfield, OH
Brad leads a church with a strong commitment to go the extra mile. His church is devoted to Christ with their time, resources, finances and prayers. Brad brings humor to a heartwarming story. He has served on the Central Bible College Alumni Board, Assemblies of God World Missions Board, Africa’s Hope Board of Regents, and has been the Board Vice Chairman of Convoy of Hope. He also serves his community as the chaplain for the City of Fairfield Fire Department, Teen Challenge Cincinnati Board of Directors and at the Tri-County Assembly Choice Food Pantry.
CHRIS & NASIM ALI // United Kingdom
In June of 2000, Chris & Nasim left the comfort of their corporate jobs in the US to return home and work among the drug addicts of Pakistan. Even though a terrorist attack on their church in Pakistan left them seriously injured, they were unwavering in the purpose to which God called them. Currently, they serve the culturally diverse community in England, teaching English to new immigrants from Pakistan, India and Bangladesh. Chris is also involved in street evangelism.
ROSE HINTON // Member Care Services, Assemblies of God World Missions
It is vital for missionaries to have a source of encouragement and access to resources that help keep them effective. Rose helps care for our more than 2,700 Assemblies of God missionaries around the world. Using her experiences as a former missionary to Chile and Master's Degree in Psychology and Counseling, Rose provides practical help, preventative training, encouragement and pastoral care.
MIKE & NAOMI LAWRENCE // Colombia
Mike & Naomi Lawrence see God changing children’s lives for eternity. These children are the poorest of the poor in Latin America. Without intervention, they would be sucked dry of all self-esteem and hope. As directors of Latin America ChildCare (LACC), the Lawrences provide Christian education, a daily meal and the life-changing future for 2,400 children in 10 schools.
EDMUND & LINDA SCHLAK // Ukraine
As newly appointed missionaries to the Ukraine, Edmund & Linda will equip students at the Evangelical Theological Seminary to establish strong churches and Pentecostal communities in Eurasia. The Schlaks call Des Moines First their church home.
ROB & JEANEL SHIPLEY // Eurasia
During their years in Africa, Rob & Jeanel were privileged to play a small part in one of the greatest in gatherings of people into the Kingdom the world has ever known. In Ethiopia, Rwanda and Uganda, they worked to develop leaders for the rapidly growing African church. Now, the Shipleys are assembling a team to take the message of God’s hope and love into a sensitive, unreached area of Eurasia.
