IAD Hosts Pastoral Week of Prayer
Communication Department, ATCU

During January 31 to February 8, 2014, pastoral families in the Atlantic Caribbean Union (ATCU) will join pastoral families from across the Inter-American Division (IAD) for the Week of Prayer for Pastoral Families. 

“Our main focus is to strengthen the unity of the pastor and his family, let them know that we value their ministry and are concerned for their well-being in general,” says Pastor Hector Sanchez, ministerial secretary for the Adventist church in Inter-America and one of the organizers of the event.  The Week of Prayer involves pastoral families coming together at corporate venues and in homes to worship God, interact with each other, and strengthen the family relations.  

On Friday, January 31 beginning at 7:30 p.m. EST, pastors and their families on the island of New Providence in the Bahamas will come together at the headquarters of the ATCU on Gladstone Road.   The conferences and mission outside of New Providence, the Bahamas will designate a venue for their pastors and their families to meet for the opening and the remainder of the event. 

In the South Bahamas Conference, Mrs. Patrice Gordon, special events coordinator, has confirmed that pastoral families will  be grouped together and assigned to meet at various homes.   

The week-long occasion will be streamed from the IAD's headquarters and can be viewed at each evening at 7:30.   The Atlantic Caribbean Union will be featured on Tuesday, February 4 and Wednesday, February 5.   The complete schedule for the week can be accessed at
