MayorPCCNA Memphis Chapter Hosts Mayor
PCCNA Memphis Chapter President Aaron Campbell and Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland
PCCNA Memphis Chapter Hosted Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland and Council member Patrice Robinson at their April meeting. "We invited him and the council woman to come and share with us their goals and aspirations for the city," says Pastor Aaron Campbell, President of the PCCNA Memphis Chapter.

"This is the first time this mayor met with the chapter since he was just elected," says Campbell. "I learned that Memphis is the third most desired tourist destination in the U.S. The mayor shared with us what the city is doing to attract more people."

Campell hosted the luncheon at his church, Rising Sun Outreach Ministries. "We wanted to collaborate with the city to let them know we support their efforts to combat poverty, crime and help with other social issues," says Campbell. The PCCNA Memphis Chapter includes 40 members representing various denominations, churches and faith-based businesses and organizations such as the National Day of Prayer, Church of God in Christ and Assemblies of God. The group closed the luncheon with prayer for Mayor Strickland and Council member Robinson.
OrdinationHow an Ordination Brought Two Movements Together 
Apostolic Church of Pentecost of Canada General Superintdent Wes Mills with Stephen Taylor and Pastor Cal Keys

Every once in a while, an ordinary moment in life takes on profound historic significance.  
 
This past Sunday was one of those moments, as I had the privilege of conducting an ordination service for Stephen Taylor at Streams PAOC Christian Church in Red Deer AB.  
 
Let me tell you the back story... Stephen Taylor was born in England but grew up attending Living Waters Church, an ACOP affiliated church in Salmon Arm BC. This is the church where Stephen first became involved in youth ministry.  
 
Sometime later, Stephen became the full-time youth pastor at Port McNeill Full Gospel Church an ACOP affiliated church on the north end of Vancouver Island. Due to economic challenges the church was facing, they found it necessary to reduce staff and Stephen was laid off. Providentially, the Lord opened a door of ministry for Stephen at Streams Christian Church in Red Deer AB.  
 
During his time of ministry in Port McNeill, Stephen was working his way through the ACOP Ordination process. When he arrived at Streams Christian Church, he was encouraged by Pastor Cal Keys to complete the ACOP ordination process. The culmination of the ACOP Ordination process is an Ordination Service; Pastor Cal Keys and Streams church graciously invited me to conduct an ACOP Ordination Service for Stephen at Streams PAOC Christian Church.  
 
In the process of planning the Ordination Service, I discovered that I knew Cal Keys' father Jack, who was the PAOC District Superintendent when I was pastoring 7th Avenue Apostolic Church in Edmonton. On Sunday, March 20, 2016 - after a wonderful worship service where the presence of the Lord was palpable - Pastor Cal Keys invited me to the Streams pulpit to conduct Stephen's Ordination Service.  
 
After thanking Streams Christian Church for graciously allowing me to conduct the ordination service, I told them that from 1919 to 1921, ACOP was part of the PAOC movement. I was also pleased to tell them that the issues that divided us nearly 100 years ago were no longer issues, and that I enjoy a wonderful working relationship with their District Superintendent, Rev. Kenn Solbrekken and their General Superintendent, Rev. David Wells.  
 
After the Ordination Service and prayer, Stephen preached an excellent message from John 17 based on Jesus' high priestly prayer for the unity of the church. I believe that Stephen's ACOP ordination in a PAOC Church service was a first for both Fellowships. Sometimes ordinary moments have profound historical significance.

GlobalOutreachDayGlobal Outreach Day
In Dallas, TX at the 2016 Annual Meeting, the PCCNA Board of Administration embraced a united vision for our membership to pray, prepare, and plan for a Miracle in May, 2020. The goal is to mobilize millions of Christians in our 40,000+ churches to share their faith with at least on person in May 2020. 

We are believing God for a harvest unlike anything witnessed in the North American church.  Begin praying now...other ministry organizations will be joining us.  Somehow by the grace of God, we must shatter the terrible statistic that declares most Christians never share their faith.  "Father, give Christians in the North American church a prayer, care, share lifestyle.  Amen."    - Jeff Farmer, President of PCCNA


"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."   Acts 1:8 (NIV)

DayofPrayerNational Day of Prayer Set for May 5









"Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will."

The nation cannot afford a sidelined church, taken out by worldliness and confusion.

The Apostle Paul commands believers to allow ourselves no longer to be conformed by worldly patterns, but rather to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. Only then we will understand the will of God, not just for our own lives, but so that we can be a prophetic voice to our nation. Sometimes the best way to pray for our nation is to pray for revival in the church!

The NDP theme for 2016 is Wake Up America, emphasizing the need for individuals, corporately and individually, to return to the God of Fathers in reverence for His Holy Name.

Isaiah 58:1 is the Scripture verse for this year: "Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet."

The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for our nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Since its inception, this day has continually united Americans from all socio-economic, political, and ethnic backgrounds in prayer while also encouraging personal repentance and righteousness in the culture. -- By Dave Butts (Source: Awakening America Alliance)
