NCU to host local AG celebration

Date: March 31, 2014 - 4:24pm

 

The Assemblies of God will celebrate its 100th Anniversary on April 2, 2014, at the JHQ Arena in Springfield, Mo. A local celebration in Minneapolis will be held at 7 p.m., April 2, in the main sanctuary at North Central University’s Trask Worship Center, featuring guest speaker James Bradford, General Secretary of the AG, and live music from North Central's College of Fine Arts, Billy Steele, and the COGIC Choir.

Among the largest Pentecostal denominations in the United States, the Assemblies of God has a rich history that began with the Azusa Street Revival in Los Angeles. After three days of prayer, the General Council agreed unanimously to form a denomination of faith focused on the gifts of the spirit, with an emphasis on tongues, on April 2, 1914.  

Over the past century, the Assemblies of God has sent missionaries around the world to spread the good news of Jesus to those who have not heard. 

Global missions have always been a major vision for the Assemblies of God, contributing to its overall growth and paving the way to what promises to be an even greater second 100 years. North Central University is proud to be a part of the ongoing story of the Assemblies of God, raising up leaders who reach out to their community and the world.
