Camp Meeting

 Dear Friends,

Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus.  I can hardly believe that it is time to start thinking about our annual Conference. It has been my privilege to be a part of World Bible Way Fellowship since 1982.  During those years I have heard it referred to as a conference, a convention and camp meeting.  Regardless of what it is called, this I do know; it has always been a time of spiritual renewal.  It is the one time of the year when ministers can be ministered to.  And, whether you are a Pastor, Evangelist, Teacher or Missionary; we all come together with our various needs and go back home to our fields of labor with a new message burning in our hearts.  Also, it is a time for much needed fellowship.  Throughout the year we seldom have time to fellowship with friends in the same city!  But at conference time old friends get together as well as meeting new friends.  

How blessed it is, after being the Vice-President of WBWF for 16 years and President for the past two years, to have the privilege of talking to hundreds of you by phone, but I have not met you personally.  It sure would be nice to put a face with the name.  This year we can make that happen on June 10 and 11. We will be gathering from all across this great nation in Waco, TX at Harvest Time Revival Center.  Pastor Lee Farmer and his wife, Sharon, along with their wonderful congregation have graciously opened their doors, as well as their hearts with great expectation. 


I believe this will be the greatest in attendance that we have ever had.  We have a great lineup of Bible Way Pastors, men with a vision and a zeal for the things of God.  So, as your President, I am asking you to please start making plans now to attend and bring a representation from your church for a time of praise and worship, good preaching and a very special move of God’s Spirit. Some of you have never attended our National Conference.  It may be a sacrifice for you, but, I believe it will be worth it.  After all you owe it to yourself to get in on a great move of God.  You won’t be disappointed, you will be glad you came.


We have been told by the hotels that June is a very busy time and reservations should be made as soon as possible or there may not be rooms available.  So please call as soon as you can to make your reservation.  The numbers to call are: 254-304-7003 – Holiday Inn Express; 254-537-0413 -
Comfort Suites.  (There is more information about these hotels in the conference brochure).  Call while it is fresh on your minds.  When you call be sure to tell them you are with Harvest Time Revival Center, for the special rate.  God’s blessing be with you and I will look forward to seeing you.

In His Service,
Dr. Kenneth K. Howe

New year resolution

Popular opinion has it that New Year’s resolutions are made to be broken and that they are essentially a waste of time.  I, somewhat, disagree with that theory.  If nothing else, the mental exercise of examining one’s shortcomings and resolving to do better, to make changes, is reason enough to go through the process.  Success in achieving, even some of the resolutions, can only strengthen one’s self-image while improving his or her quality of life. 

Anything that will improve the management of my life is worth the effort to, at least, attempt to change.  The difference between resolution and transformation is that resolutions will endeavor to change by putting a new suit on the man. Transformation is when Christ makes the change by putting a new man in the suit.  
 

Christmas Message

THE LIGHT IN A STABLE


John 12:46 “I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide
                     in darkness.”

For more than 400 years the heavens had been sealed.  And no new revelation had come to brighten the landscape of man’s sinful night.  Then, suddenly the silence was broken.  The excellent glory was revealed and Jesus Christ stepped down from the Ivory Palaces of eternity into the evil smelling stable of the world.  In self-sacrificing love He came to bring grace and forgiveness to sinful mankind. You would think that the world would have rejoiced and eagerly received the Savior.  Instead, they clung to the darkness of their own depravity and with wicked hands soon proceeded to crucify the Prince of Life. No wonder we read, “This is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.” (John 3:19)

Although others such as John the Baptist were designated as luminaries or “lamps”, Christ was the only real radiance.  Therefore, He alone is called “the light”!  He embodied the essence of God’s glory, while the others were only “light bearers”.  They had no innate illumination of their own.  The birth of Christ brought illumination to this dark world.  The light of Christ transforms the “stable” of man’s heart into a “temple” for the Holy Spirit, would that all men would come to this light. 

                                                              THINK ABOUT IT!!!

We want to thank all of you for your feedback regarding our Directory.  The response has been enormous.  We are very excited.  We have made changes for many of our ministers.  We have also found a few who didn't make it in the file upload (including one of our officers...whoopsie).

At the very least, look for yourself and make sure you are in there (remember this is an 'active' ministers list, so anyone who didn't renew in 2012 will not be included) and that your information is up to date and to your liking.  Shoot us an email at: admin@worldbibleway.com with any suggestions or corrections.  Thanks again for all the feedback.

Our next big project is to get all our missionaries in their Directory list.  Be praying for us.  God Bless.

 

It's here!!! Our Directory of Active WBWF Ministers is alive and well!  Praise God! We are so thankful to Church Web Works for making this process possible in such a short period of time.  This is truly a blessing!  It would have taken months and months to do this manually.

If you click on the Directory tab and select Ministers, a list will come up displayed in strict alphabetic order.  The search function allows you to search by Name, City, State, or Zip Code.  If you search by State please be aware that you will need to enter the USPS abbreviation for that state.  Take the time to play with it. At least look at yourself and make sure the info is correct. If something needs to be corrected contact us at admin@worldbibleway.com

We are still in the process of building a Directory for all our Active Missionaries, Affiliated Churches and Ministries.  We are also still collecting information/photos/stories/memories regarding the History of our Fellowship. Don't forget, we have the ability to add videos & a photo gallery. If you have pictures and/or videos that you would like to contribute please contact us  at admin@worldbibleway.com.  Our WBWF Calendar is ready for your events/special services.  Submit information for your church or ministry to admin@wordbibleway.com.

So... as we've said before, check the WBWF website often.  As you watch us grow please let us know f you see anything that needs to be corrected or added.

The new web site

We are in the process of building a Directory on our new website that will provide contact information for all our Active Ministers, Missionaries, Affiliated Churches and Ministries. Our goal is to arrange those ministers/ministries in the continental US by state to make the search easier. In addition, we will be adding a History of our Fellowship. We also have the ability to add videos & a photo gallery. If you have pictures and/or videos that you would like to contribute please contact us at admin@worldbibleway.com

We would also like you to know that we can add information on special services or activities that you have coming up to our Calendar. If you would like to submit information for your church or ministry please contact us admin@wordbibleway.com.

So... check the WBWF website often. As you watch us grow please let us know f you see anything that needs to be corrected or added.
