Personal Testimony – Joerg Klein

Testimony of Joerg Klein Family on Saturday, March 13, 2010

Bro. Joerg Klein of Tobermory, Canada

I tell you, God means what he says and says what he means. I want to encourage you, with all my heart, to believe what the Word of God says. It’s a real privilege to be here and to have the privilege to hear that, truthfully teaching on the Word of God. It’s a privilege. I went to a lot of churches in my life and there was no word about holiness, no word about holy living….

The Kingdom Of God In Practice – John D. Martin

Session #18 on Sunday, March 14, 2010

Bro. John D. Martin of Shippensburg, PA

Humility has been a prominent theme of our people, so contrary to the world. It is the mind of Christ.

Advancing the Kingdom | Part 2 – Donnie Swartzentruber

Session #17 on Sunday, March 14, 2010

Bro. Donnie Swartzentruber of Montezuma, GA

…He was coming along, maybe he had his religious clothing on; he probably looked like a priest, was dressed like a priest. Maybe someone thought he was going to offer a sacrifice or something. Probably looked like he was going about his religious duties. And as he came, he saw this man (who needed help), but he passed by on the other side. He chose to go around this man that was laying there, striped, wounded, and half dead.

Repairing The Walls of Our Homes – Panel Discussion

Session #15 on Sunday, March 14, 2010

Panel Discussion moderated by Bro. Jerry Hoover of Dover, OH
The panelists in this discussion were Bros. John D. Martin, Nathan Overholt, Matthias Overholt, Chester Weaver, David Graber, Donnie Swartzentruber & Ed Kline.

The subject being discussed centers around the retention of youth in our churches. This illustration from Bro. Jerry Hoover sums up at least part of the concerns discussed.

In our farms we have John Deere tractors, we have horses, we have Powerstroke diesels. (What if) consistently through the last 30-40 years, somewhere between 25% and 50% of the John Deere tractors and the Powerstroke pickups, and the horses would somehow just disappear off your farms? There would be people coming out of the woodwork trying to figure out where they’re going, and what’s happening. But alas, there’s been a silence. And one is (left) wondering where the prophetic voice is at.

Parts 1 & 2:

The Remarkable Rechabites – Chester Weaver

Session #14 on Sunday, March 14, 2010

Bro. Chester Weaver of LaGrange, IN

I’m not going to be pointing you to my family and how I did it, because I just didn’t do it well enough. But I would like to point you to somebody who is remarkable in what he did, so remarkable that God was impressed. I’m not sure God’s impressed with my family, but God was impressed by this man’s family.

Advancing The Kingdom | Part I – Donnie Swartzentruber

Session #13 on Sunday, March 14, 2010

Bro. Donnie Swartzentruber of Montezuma, GA

Holiness Unto The Lord – David Graber

Session #12 on Sunday, March 14, 2010

Bro. David Graber of Sarasota, FL

Quoting A.W. Tozer, “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us”. …..When we look at the holiness of God; the Proverb writer said in Chapter 9, verse 10, “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.”

Jesus and the 401k – Roger Hertzler

Session #11 on Saturday, March 13, 2010

Bro. Roger Hertzler of Halsey, OR

I thought back about a dozen years ago or so, and I thought about what I would have shared had this title been assigned to me back then. Back then I would have been excited to talk about this subject. …..I would have talked to you about how more useful you can be to God if you can somehow get to that point of being independently wealthy. …..But something happened to me. ….I had what I’m going to call an “uh-oh moment”. I don’t know how many of you know what an “uh-oh moment” is. Let me tell you about it.

Journey Toward Brokenness; Gelassenheit – Chester Weaver

Session #10 on Saturday, March 13, 2010

Bro. Chester Weaver of LaGrange, IN

The natural man would say, “I will love myself first, and then I’ll love you if I want to.” Jesus said, “If anyone desires to come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever desires to save his life, will loose it.

Session #9 on Saturday, March 13, 2010

Bro. Ed Kline of Berlin, OH

I’ll tell you a story. It’s the story of a group of believers that were discovered in southern Ukraine the last couple years. I’d like to speak about their beliefs and what we might learn from them, but in order to do that I need to tell you a little bit about their past.
