Fall 2014 Lecture Series
“Adventist Essentials: Focusing on Christ”
Nov. 7-8

For our 35th Annual Fall Lecture Series, Stephen Chavez will present three lectures on Adventist Essentials: Focusing on Christ. What does it mean to be a Seventh-day Adventist in the twenty-first century? More particularly, what does it mean to follow Christ 20 centuries after He said He was coming “soon?” The church we proudly serve is not so much an institution as it is an organism, which means it grows and adapts as cultures and situations change. While the principles of the gospel are everlasting, the way they are presented in our communities is constantly evolving. This weekend’s presentations, and the discussions they engender, will give us an opportunity to examine both our faith and our practice.
His Sabbath sermon is entitled, “Into the Neighborhood”.

Stephen Chavez is coordinating editor of Adventist Review and Adventist World magazines. He has served on the staff for 20 years, after spending almost that much time as a parish pastor (which means he is old). In addition to his professional responsibilities, he serves his local church as an elder, chair of the administrative board, and benevolent dictator to the seventh and eighth graders in his Sabbath school class. He is also president of the Silver Spring-Kensington Rotary Club. Steve is a dedicated runner, having completed dozens of marathons in more than 35 years, in addition to many races of shorter distances. He also competes in triathlons. He enjoys reading, listening to music, fixing things, and riding his motorcycle.
