SOC Continues In Asia

(For security purposes we have not included photos or the names of the workers.)

Praise the Lord for such a great move of God among the students that were able to attend the Asia School of Christ.  We had a total of 58 students from the countries of Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Karakalpakstan.

Religious persecution is on the rise in these closed countries. Bibles are being taken away, churches are raided, Christians are jailed, and there is even a ban on Christians being buried in state cemeteries. But, persecution has not stopped these men and women of God wanting to know more about the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

While the spread of Christianity has been great, there are still huge segments of the world’s population that have never heard the name of Jesus or the message of salvation. In an article on the Future of the Global Church it said, “The disturbing truth is that there may still be nearly 2 billion individuals who have never had a chance to hear the Gospel.”

The Bible says in Matthew 28:19, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.” God has laid upon the hearts of ministers to take the School of Christ training material into these areas that are closed to the western world. Through the teaching of the School of Christ we are equipping these pastors and workers to make not just converts, but disciples for Jesus Christ. Pray for these pastors and workers as they labor for God in this difficult field.

We must work while the door is open for the to minister and train in these areas. We are called to either “GO” or “SEND.” Help us send SOC workers while there is still time to work.

Praying for God to Send Revival to Hungary

ear Brothers, Sisters, Intercessors, and Supporters:

The School of Christ courses are still being taught here in Hungary. We have just graduated five students from four different churches. Our prayer is that more churches will embrace the School and more people will be involved. I continue to meet pastors and church workers to encourage them, and we pray together for God’s will to be done in our country.

 

The School of Christ Hungary and the Network of Hungarian Pentecostal churches worked together over the last twelve months and held two conferences with SOC students, pastors, and church ministers in attendance. We have over one hundred and ten participants in both events. These three day conferences were made up of forty percent prayer time. We prayed more than ten hours during this conference. That is what we needed; to get back into His Holy Fire. Our theme was to lift up Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit. The Lord moved mightily, we saw healings, people received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, yokes broken, joy, and worship. It was a living Pentecost! We were so blessed by Pastor Lee Shipp, a SOC Director, for coming to be one of our speakers at these conferences.

I continue to work with the pastors and churches in Balkans, Serbia, and Bosnia. The School of Christ was introduced in Bosnia through our ministry here in Hungry. The spiritual condition of the church in Bosnia is very, very difficult. The country is made up of three ethnic groups and three religions. There is a lot of hatred and pain among the people. The churches are very small and struggling, and the pastors need prayer and encouragement.

We thank you for the School of Christ ministry, and for all you do for us. It is so good to know and feel that you are standing behind us and protect our spiritual backs! May the Lord bless you and keep you in His love!

Doors of Ministry Remain Open in Nicaragua

The School of Christ graduates in Nicaragua

God bless you Pastor/President Robert Turnage, School of Christ Staff, and Supporters:

Praising the Lord that the work here in Nicaragua still continues. The Gospel of Pentecost is being preached and the doors of ministry are remaining open. We are moving forward in the work of God that has been entrusted to us. Nicaragua needs an urgent move of the Holy Spirit, and we will not rest, but will continue to plan and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We will continue to train through the School of Christ, vessels who are willing to be used by God, and will bring the Gospel of the Kingdom to this country.

We had a wonderful week starting a new School in a maximum security prison with thirty students in attendance. They received this message with open hearts and it was wonderful to see. I give God the glory for His great mercy in leading us in this great work. We face many daily challenges but He makes us “more than conquerors” through His grace.

At the present we have two SOC Schools running in the city of San Marcos, Nicaragua, and a School is in the capitol city of Managua, with fifty students in attendance. We have started a new School in Leon,
Nicaragua, with thirteen students. The Leon School is made up of mostly pastors who are interested in this Message of Pentecost. What a blessing to see how their spiritual eyes are opened when they begin to watch the School of Christ lessons preached on DVD by Pastor Clendennen.

School of Christ School being taught in Nicaragua

There is a great need and the resources are few, but God has given us a team of workers in this country that are dedicated to the work of God that is helping carry the Message of Pentecost to this nation. These men of God are working shoulder-to-shoulder, and I can say as the Apostle Paul, “they are true companions of Christ.” God bless you and continue to pray for Nicaragua and the workers God has called to this mission field.

SOC Training Missionaries and Workers in Ukraine

The “Ukraine Brothers” are a group of School of Christ leaders that are full-time missionaries carrying the Gospel of Jesus Christ to open and closed countries.

Report:
The ‘Ukraine Brothers” have been very actively running School of Christ Schools in different parts of the Ukraine and occupied territories. Two Schools have just graduated in the cities of Kamyanets-Podilskyi and Thermopile, located in the western regions of the Ukraine.

Graduating School of Christ class in Kamyanets_Podilskyi, Ukraine

The first School was conducted at a church in Kamyanets-Podilskyi, Ukraine with twenty-six students in attendance. This region of the Ukraine has a historical significance. One of the first and largest Holocaust massacres was carried out in the opening stages of World War II between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. On August 27 & 28, 1941, according to Nazi Germany reports, 23,600 Jewish men, women, and children from the Kamyanets-Podilskyi Ghetto were murdered. They were killed by the Einsatzgruppen (Mobil Killing Units) and troops under the command of Higher SS. This city has a long history of invasions, violence, and turmoil, but now the Gospel is being preached and taught there through the teachings of the School of Christ.

Missionaries in Ternopil, Ukraine going through the School of Christ

The Second School was held in Ternopil, Ukraine, which is a major highway and railway hub. The School was held at the Ternopil Missionary Institute with twelve students going through the SOC program that are missionaries preparing to go into Asia and Africa. God is still calling young men and women to follow the Great Commission, “GO YE INTO ALL THE WORLD AND PREACH THE GOSPEL!” Pray that God will continue to use these young missionaries, and that they will go in His strength and boldness.

With the economic disaster in the occupied Russian territories, life is very difficult for the people in the Ukraine, but we remain steadfast in the work of the School of Christ. Praise the Lord for all He is doing in our country. Pray we will continue to be faithful workers for Him.

Mission Message – Robert Turnage – President

 Robert Turnage – SOC President

(This article was published in the June, 2017 School of Christ Mission Report) 

The world is in darkness and there is a gross darkness over the people (Isaiah 60:2). When Jesus was speaking of certain developments in the end-time, He would follow up with words such as, “but the end is not yet.” No one knows what lies ahead that the world or what the church must contend with. One thing is certain and that is, somewhere in time, God will remove His children from this earth. Then He will deal with the evil men and women who remain.

One separating difference between these peoples is Light and darkness. Jesus is the Light of the world and His children are not in darkness. Those without Christ are in total darkness, and without a miraculous change, the darkness will damn their souls forever.

The founder of the School of Christ International, Pastor B. H. Clendennen, totally gave himself to the work of sharing the message of the source of this Light with every person. Unbelievable numbers of people have never heard the Name of Jesus Christ, His love for them, or what He has prepared for them.

We who continue this great ministry, following the death of this great man, continue to carry on this missions work with the same zeal, vision, and burden of Pastor Clendennen.

We need you to join us in taking the Gospel to the uttermost reaches of this world while it is day for the night is coming when no man will be able to work. God bless you for your vision and labor of love. Your remembrance to give for the souls that Jesus died for, has been the life and breath and means for the continuance of this Work of God.
