The Azure Hills Church in Grand Terrace California hosts a series on Adventist history entitled "The Advent Movement: Progress or Regress?" Pacific Union Conference* communications director Gerry Chudleigh kicked off the series with a presentation entitled "Who Runs the Church," in which Chudleigh explored the history of the stratification of church leadership, and where the locus of power was originally intended to be.
Upcoming topics in the series: The Doctrine of the Trinity—Gil Valentine Adventist Fundamental Beliefs—John Brunt Ellen G. White and Science in the 19th Century—Warren Johns Women in Ministry—Bert Haloviak and Kendra Haloviak Valentine
More information on the series is available here.
