Bradford and Finley to Speak at 3ABN Homecoming

3ABN Homecoming 2011

This year's Homecoming will be held September 22–24 at 3ABN's Worship Center in Thompsonville, Illinois. Join us for a special blessing!

Each year, as fall approaches, we eagerly look forward to 3ABN’s Homecoming Weekend because of its traditional “family feel!” It’s a great opportunity to share the joy of fellowship with like-minded believers, and experience the blessings God has in store for each of us. This year’s Homecoming Weekend will be held from Thursday, September 22 through Saturday, September 24, at 3ABN’s Worship Center in Thompsonville, Illinois, and we invite you to be with us in person.

A Double-Header!
Camp meetings in the United States began in the frontier days when churches were few—and preachers were even harder to find! Seventh-day Adventist believers still hold to this tradition to come apart for worship, inspiration, and prayer, and in addition to our daytime seminars, we have a double-header for you this year! We are privileged to have Pastor Charles E. Bradford and Pastor Mark Finley with us, and we look forward to being blessed by their sermons each day, since these mighty men of God both have a tremendous burden for evangelism.

Pastor Charles E. BradfordPastor Charles E. Bradford served the Seventh-day Adventist Church for 40 years as an evangelist, departmental director, and conference president. He also served as president of the Church in North America. During that time he faced many challenges but never lost his love for God’s church—or his enthusiasm for evangelism.
Pastor Mark Finley
Pastor Mark Finley is a former speaker/director of It Is Written. He has held numerous evangelistic campaigns around the world and served as a vice president of the General Conference of the Seventh-day Adventists. Today he is a special assistant to the president.
Music and More

During this camp meeting you’ll hear music by Danny Shelton, C.A. Murray, Melody Firestone, John Lomacang, Yvonne Lewis, Tammy Chance, and Pam and Jimmy Rhodes, among others. We’ll also have children’s meetings for each age group, and delicious vegetarian meals prepared by Chef Mark Anthony and his army of volunteers! If you’ve never been here for camp meeting, we hope you’ll join us. And if you can’t make it in person, please tune in 3ABN television and 3ABN Radio for a live broadcast of each meeting. We look forward to joining you in the fellowship of the Spirit!
