One of the great joys of church administration is calling and developing pastors. The loss of one of those pastors was one of the most disheartening times of my administrative experience.
This particular young pastor was smart, gifted, a good connector and dedicated. I considered him one who would make an effective, long-term contribution to the mission of the Church. It was a severe shock when he came to me with a divergent theological view that was eroding his belief in the Advent message. We connected him with godly pastors and theologians in an attempt to bring him back to biblical truth. After some time, his opinions solidified.

Lake Union Herald
In concert with the action and initiative by the 2010 General Conference Session in Atlanta to focus our attention on the large cities of the world, the five conferences in the Lake Union are giving special attention to the four large cities in our territory with initial emphasis directed to Indianapolis, where the Indiana and Lake Region conferences participated in an evangelistic series in association with the Voice of Prophecy ministry.
This edition of the Herald provides insights to the scope of the task and how God is leading in this initiative.
