It’s a family reunion, a homecoming weekend, and an opportunity for revival all wrapped up in one event. And in September you can experience it all on 3ABN! “Homecoming this year will be absolutely fantastic!” says Jim Gilley, 3ABN’s president. “International evangelist John Carter has just returned from Papua New Guinea where he preached to crowds of over 100,000 people—and he is excited! John is truly part of our family, and he’s coming home!”
Pastor Carter will be the keynote speaker for this year’s 3ABN Homecoming Weekend. His ministry, The Carter Report,and 3ABN have enjoyed a long and deep ministry relationship of friendship and cooperation in preaching the gospel for many years.
In the early 1990s Pastor Carter invited Danny Shelton and a 3ABN crew to accompany him to Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, for the first-ever Protestant evangelistic series in that city. This event was historic in many ways, for Nizhny Novgorod had been closed to Westerners during all its Communist years. As a manufacturing base for the U.S.S.R.’s nuclear submarines and MIG fighter jets, it was strictly off-limits, but now the gospel was about to break out from here into all the ex-Soviet Union—and the world. It would also soon be home to 3ABN’s Russian Evangelism Center, a hub for television and radio productions that reach the millions of Russian-speaking around the globe.
Just back from Papua New Guinea, Pastor Carter addressed record crowds of over 100,000 people at the Sir John Guise Stadium in the capital city of Port Moresby. This is about a quarter of the entire population of the city, and God certainly blessed the ministry’s efforts to bring the gospel to this nation. 3ABN has had a television station in Port Moresby, and we hear from local pastors that viewers show up each week from watching our programs!
If you’ve never heard Pastor Carter preach, you owe it to yourself to do so! Here are his sermon titles for this year’s Homecoming Weekend:
Thursday – “Our Apocalyptic Age”
Friday – “The Savior and His Cross”
Saturday morning – “Going Forward in Faith”
Saturday evening – “Going Home”
Introducing Pastor Venegas
We are also happy to introduce you to the newest addition to the Carter Report Ministry, Pastor James Venegas. A fellow Australian, Pastor Venegas is already making an impression on those who hear him preach, and we’re excited to have him with us for seminars and sermons during the 2012 Homecoming!
In addition to all the spiritual food, we are thrilled to have many of our 3ABN musical family on hand to inspire and bless us throughout the weekend. We’ll also have children’s meetings for each age group, and delicious vegan meals prepared by chef Mark Anthony of Las Vegas, Nevada, assisted by an army of volunteers! If you’ve never attended a 3ABN camp meeting, we hope you’ll make plans to visit. And if you can’t be with us in person, then we invite you to tune in for a wonderful spiritual experience that will keep you coming back again and again!
