March 12, 2013 Filed in: Other
The long anticipated visit of Pastor Dwight K. Nelson and his wife Karen to the South Bahamas Conference is almost here. 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, will be in town this weekend. 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 will preach at the Hillivew Seventh-day Adventist Church on Friday, March 15 and Sunday March 17, 2013, 7:00 p.m. as part of the “Double Your Portion” Adventist rally. He will also be the Divine Service speaker on Saturday morning at the Centreville Seventh-day Adventist Church.
Born in Tokyo, Japan, of missionary parents, Nelson converses in Japanese. A graduate of Far Eastern Academy in Singapore, Nelson later earned a bachelor's degree from Southern Adventist University, Collegedale, Tennessee, a Master of Divinity (MDiv) degree from Andrews University and a Doctor of Ministry degree (DMin) from the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary. His spoken word is complimented by his published works, which include Outrageous Grace, Countdown to the Showdown and Built to Last. Pastor Nelson will be 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 to the campus church in Michigan and to his television broadcast. So much so, that in 1994, the Pioneer Memorial Church hosted ABC Television's National Christmas Eve service. He is fresh, practical, down-to-earth, and deeply spiritual. Wherever Pastor Nelsons speaks a crowd is sure to follow. The Pioneer Memorial Church has standing room only each Saturday morning with eager students, community and faculty members who are anxious to hear the fresh spiritual insights from the Bible. 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. This is your opportunity to experience what others describe as an unforgettable spiritual feast. You will be richly blessed this weekend by his ministry. Come and join us.
