 OregonShootingPCCNA Leader Issues Urgent Plea After Oregon Shooting
Now, more than ever, we need to pray for our nation and the violence against Christians. (Reuters)
Editor's Note: On Oct. 1, nine people were killed at Umpqua Community College after being asked if they were a Christian. Rev. Samuel Rodriguez wrote this column for Charisma News.

We live in dark times. The Umpqua Community College shooting targeting Christians speaks to a world spiraling into anarchy, embracing chaos, empowered by hatred and expressed through violence.

I humbly call upon our nation to broaden our collective lens and address the issue of intolerance toward people of faith-especially when directed against followers of Christ, both domestically and abroad. Although it would be premature, and arguably intellectually inappropriate, to establish a moral equivalence with our brothers and sisters in the Middle East and elsewhere who suffer from government and terrorist-sponsored persecution, the tragedy in Oregon does expose the need for vigilance. 

Accordingly, as a nation, we must repudiate all religious bigotry-without exception. More than ever before, we must stand committed to protecting our God-given and constitutionally protected right of religious liberty. Read more.

Thirteen PCCNA organizations sent one or more delegates to Charlotte, NC, September 3-5, to reignite their passion for personal evangelism. Denominational senior leaders, national missions leaders, Next Gen ministry leaders, church planting leaders, and pastors were all called to the harvest and to personal obedience and accountability for sharing their faith.

Rick Ciaramataro, President of Open Bible Faith Fellowship, said "The Vision for Evangelism (VFE) event in Charlotte was an inspiring time of deep soul-searching." Brian Egert, Mission Canada Assistant to the General Superintendent of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada, said, "It was great to meet with other Spirit-filled leaders around this issue that is close to the Father's heart. It was a significant time together."  Ramona Farmer said "the VFE was an intense, interactive time that renewed our passion to share the Good News with those whom we contact daily." 

Sponsored by the Awakening America Alliance and the Billy Graham Library, the Call to Charlotte VFE is designed to release thousands of next gen leaders into the field of souls.  Those present were encouraged to go home and recruit potential evangelists to return to Charlotte for a similar encounter with God and His Spirit.  

Movements and churches are responding. Dates in 2016 are being set for repeat events. Contact Allie Miller if you are interested in sending a group to experience the VFE event...if you recognize a need for renewed personal evangelism in your district, region, movement, or group.  "Say not four months...the fields are ripe" (John 4:35).

An opportunity for courage on immigration (NHCLC/CONELA)

He challenged the Congress to apply Christ's Golden Rule, to address the situation of refugees and other immigrants "with the same passion and compassion with which we want to be treated."

5 Compelling Reasons Why God Wants to Use Us
by Bishop Charles Blake, Superintendent, Church of God in Christ 
If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land. Isaiah 1:19 (NKJV) Why does God want to use us? Why has God chosen us for this day? Haven't we messed up too much already to receive His Blessings? No. God knows we're frail; God knows we're weak. But God has also blessed us with certain blessings, and He has still called each of us to do His Will. Click here to read more.
