USGA’s Church Development and Sacred Work Update




Hallelujah, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, we would like to share with our brothers and sisters around the world recent developments in the holy work of the USGA and among the churches in the United States.


National Evangelical Personnel Workshop

The National Evangelical Personnel Workshop was held on February 17-19 at Baldwin Park church. The theme of this year’s workshop was “Proclaim The kingdom of Heaven.” Besides covering topics related to the theme, the workshop also included other sessions, such as evangelical work sharing, “from believer to evangelist,” effective follow up, and Q&A. Around 50-70 attendants from local churches in US participated in this event. This two-and-a-half-day event is held every other year to equip the evangelical workers for more fruitful evangelical outreach.

International Youth Fellowship

The 2017 International Youth Fellowship (IYF) was held during June 1-12, in California, USA. The event started with a 5-day seminar at Irvine Church, followed by a 3-day Southern California tour & visitation and then a 3-day Northern California tour & visitation. There were 110 youths from 12 different countries who attended the seminar and 60-70 youths who attended the tour & visitation. The theme for this IYF is “100 Years - A Heritage of Grace & Spirituality.” The seminar included classes, prayers, hymn singing, discussions, testimonies & sharing (by country), group presentation (by country), Q&A, and fellowship activities. The tour included popular sightseeing venues (e.g. Disneyland, Golden Gate Bridge) and the church visitation covered Garden Grove Church, Cerritos Church, Baldwin Park Church, Pacifica Church, and San Jose Church.

Praise God, there were a lot of wonderful fellowship between the participants and also with the local members. Many participants also found the testimonies and sharing of the youth ministry work in the various countries to be edifying and encouraging. The overall atmosphere felt like that of one big family, despite the many different languages spoken and cultural background. May the Lord help the participants to bring back what they have learned about our heritage of grace and spirituality.
