This was in addition to two 50-year ( Wayne Blinn & Wayne Briggs) and two 60-year (John McElhinney & Fred Whittey) Ordained Ministers.
2020 Beulah Family Camp (July 3-12) Evangelists are Joanne Solis-Walker and Mick Veach.

Mick’s desire is and always has been to see God’s truth compel others to Great Commission action and to foster healthy local churches that engage in evangelism and discipleship. He and his wife, Melanie, have three children and love living in the historic Bostin-Edison Neighborhood of Detroit.

Kingswood University is delighted to announce the successful launch of its Haiti Initiative. This program allows for a select group of young adults from the Wesleyan Church of Haiti to attend Kingswood University and complete a Bachelors degree. The students, who were selected by Global Partners missionaries, Carl and Maya Gilles, have committed to return to Haiti upon graduation.
The three students in this inaugural year are Dinalthero Charles and Merline Desrameaux (pictured below with recent KU alumnus, Luciano Latouche) and Lafrance Jasmin. They join current Haitian student, Ruth Octavius.
Kingswood will provide a scholarship which completely covers the students’ tuition. Their living expenses are provided by generous donors. Anyone interested in learning more should contact President Lennox at firstname.lastname@example.org. #globalcollective
- God’s dreams are better than ours because He loves lost people more than we do. (Gary Rohrmayer)
- God is totally in charge. Mission is His will and bill. (Windel Benjamin)
- But in this world everything is upside down. That which, if it could be prolonged here, would be a truancy, is likest that which in a better country is the End of ends. Joy is the serious business of heaven. (C. S. Lewis via Anne Medders delivery of Georgina Hayes Eulogy)
