As a member of Adventist-laymen’s Services and Industries (ASI) organization, 3ABN has been privileged to broadcast their International Convention for many years. This year’s event will be held August 7–10 at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando, Florida, where ASI members, supporters, and friends from all over the world will gather to encourage each other and exchange ideas on how to effectively share Christ in their personal and professional interactions.
During this energetic and inspiring gathering, networks will be formed and plans will be made that one individual or institution could never accomplish alone. And best of all, friendships will be made that will last for eternity!
This year’s special emphasis, “Prophecy Fulfilled,” will feature session presentations by C. D. Brooks, Mark Finley, Ty Gibson, Pavel Goia, and ASI president, Frank Fournier. Seminars will cover outreach, prophecy, health, and other inspirational topics with Doug Batchelor, Michael Hasel, John Bradshaw, Lewis Walton, Scott Mayer, and other gifted presenters.
From Every Walk of Life
This unique and diverse group of approximately 800 members includes Adventists from every walk of life—business owners, individual professionals, and supporting ministries—and their enthusiasm is contagious!
“The ASI Convention is the highlight of our year,” says Jesse Johnson, president of netAserve.com, a software training and support company in Fredericktown, Missouri. “My family looks forward to ASI conventions each year. They help us stay focused on our mission, and it’s a phenomenal opportunity to stay on track.”
“I come away from ASI awed by the amazing stories I’ve heard of how God is revealing Himself in everyday circumstances, through everyday people,” says Pat Arrabito, owner of LLT Productions in Angwin, California. “I walk through the exhibit hall, seeing the things people are doing for God—things I might never have thought of, things unique to the individuals who do them—and I want to add my widow’s mite and my energy to every one of them! It’s a wonderful thing to get a glimpse of God working in ways and places you’d never thought of, or realized!”
“Attending ASI is the most rewarding experience in my life,” says Ray Huang, a technology manager at an alternative energy company. “It’s all about helping people reach Christ. A couple of years ago, I attended a convention and met Keith Parris who heads up the Satellite Ministry of the Twin Peaks Seventh-day Adventist Church in Louisville, Colorado. With his help I started this ministry within my own church in Denver, and we’ve enabled more than 20 families to watch 3ABN. There are many encouraging stories we’ve heard from people reaching Christ through this ministry.”
Make plans to watch 3ABN’s extensive coverage of this year’s ASI Convention from Orlando, Florida, and prepare to be inspired!
