Convention 2011 under the theme By his Grace with guest speaker Pastor Mansfield Edwards, president of the Ontario Conference of Seventh-day Adventists in Canada and the ACUM Administration is now behind us. This was a grand affair with Friday and Sunday night at the George Town Church and all day on Sabbath at the Lion’s Centre. The musical and dramatic presentations from some of the finest musicians and performers from across the conference were without equal. A special prayer, power hour with Pastor Peter Kerr, secretary of ACUM, served to consecrate the grounds and seek God’s face for a powerful anointing throughout the day. All the days’ events were a demonstration of God’s presence, as the 4:00 pm. Praise Reunion, the drama piece, the special message from Dr. Leonard Johnson ACUM president all blended together in a beautiful tapestry of God’s grace. At 10:30 Sunday night the curtains came down after another power packed presention from Dr. Edwards at the George Town church.
