Grand Rapids, Michigan will receive a double-dose of ASI this year...AND a double blessing!  The ASI Lake Union Chapter will hold its annual Spring Fellowship, April 18-19, 2014 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel by the Airport.  Themed “Ultimate Surrender,” this event is planned to inspire and motivate attendees with creative ways to tell others about Jesus and His soon return.  Speakers, music, seminars, a children's program, exhibits and member's enthusiastic testimonies will pack the weekend with ideas and tools to enhance your Christian witness.  A phenomenal slate of presenters include Pastor Rodlie Ortiz, a member of the pastoral team at Pioneer Memorial Church on the campus of Andrews University, as the Friday evening speaker; Elder Dan Jackson, president of the North American Division, for the Sabbath morning worship service; and also with us will be our own Union President, Elder Don Livesay, for Sabbath evening vespers.   Rich Aguilera, founder of One Mustard Seed, will bring a dynamic presentation for the children/youth program -- one that the kids won't want to miss!

This weekend will be more than inspirational preaching.  You will hear personal testimonies from people from every walk of life and all types of industry about what they are doing to tell others about Jesus.  You will learn during the two seminars how to improve your business and a creative approach to witness to people of different cultures.  You will receive practical, hands-on tools and ideas to use right away at your business or ministry to reach others more effectively.  All of this and much more will provide an unforgettable experience.

We each have a vocation or a "calling."  But is your career a part of your spiritual calling, or is it getting in the way of sharing your faith?  The music, messages and testimonies shared during these meetings will inspire and motivate you to accept the challenge to Share Christ in Your Marketplace.  You will be encouraged to align your life, career and calling more and more with God's will so that all your gifts and talents will be used to the fullest to fulfill the gospel commission.
