The long anticipated visit of Pastor Dwight K. Nelson and his wife Karen to the South Bahamas Conference is now history. Dwight Nelson, who serves as the Senior Pastor to the over four-thousand-member Pioneer Memorial Seventh-day Adventist church on the campus of Andrews University, Berrien Springs Michigan, ministered to the members of South Bahamas Conference with unforgettable passion and clarity. Renowned internationally through his evangelistic campaigns, he can be viewed weekly on the television broadcast, “New Perceptions,” and heard on many radio stations around the world. Pastor Nelson presented a three part series entitled Tattoos on the Heart: A Case for Apocalyptic Compassion, at the Hillivew Seventh-day Adventist Church on Friday, March 15 and Sunday March 17, 2013, as part of the “Double Your Portion” Adventist rally. Listeners described him as fresh, practical, down-to-earth, and deeply spiritual. The experience was labeled as an unforgettable spiritual feast. Pastor Nelson was accompanied by his wife Karen Oswald Nelson, a registered nurse and his partner in ministry. They have one son Kirk, and a daughter Kristin.
Pastor Dwight’s unique style of preaching attracts thousands of listeners around the world. His spoken word is complimented by his published works, which include Outrageous Grace, Countdown to the Showdown and Built to Last. His gift of speaking and administration has kept him the pastor of the campus church since 1983 (30 years) where the students love him and the church continues to grow under his leadership.
