ACUM’s Annual Symposium 2012

Each year the Atlantic Caribbean Union proposes to hold a symposium in an attempt to better acquaint its membership about the happenings in each of its fields and university. Apart from acquainting the membership the occasion allows for the reporting of evangelism, which is the lifeblood and main objective of ACUM’s existence. Accordingly, on Wednesday, May 23, 2012, beginning at 7 p.m.; the Hillview Seventh-day Adventist Church on Tonique Williams Highway will be the site where hundreds of worshipers are expected to gather for an evening of praise and celebration to God.

What to Expect?
There will be 5 video reports representing the four local fields of the Atlantic Caribbean Union and the Northern Caribbean University. The four fields are The South Bahamas Conference, The North Bahamas Conference, Cayman Islands Conference and the Turks and Caicos Islands Mission. As such each president will present his field’s report and the university’s president will present his report. They are pastors Paul Scavella, Errol Tinker, Shiann O’Connor, Michael Smith and Dr. Trevor Gardiner. Based on previous reports, all can anticipate inspirational and exciting reports utilizing the best in today’s technology.
Also, the Symposium reports will be punctuated with gospel singing featuring several choirs and individuals; and Pastor Leonard Johnson, union president, will culminate the occasion with a charge.

Creating a Sense of Togetherness
This is more than just reporting and/or sharing. The Symposium serves to engender a sense of appreciation for the entire union and an awareness of how God is truly blessing His work across the union territory. Also, it is hoped that with the annual symposiums in all the fields of the Union it will further unite all workers and members to accomplish the mission of the church, which is clearly stated in ACUM’s Strategic Plan: “To proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ to the Bahamas, The Cayman Islands and the Turks and Caicos Islands.” As such, a special invitation is extended to all local members within Nassau, Bahamas to attend. As for the others of you, your prayers will be most appreciated.
