The complete May/June 2018 issue of Influence magazine is now available online.
Assemblies of God general superintendent Doug Clay writes about our Pentecostal distinctive in the cover story, “Who Are We? What It Means to Be Pentecostal.” In a world that is increasingly hostile to the gospel, Clay reminds readers of God’s call to live as people of the Spirit.
In “The Future Is Now: 7 Trends Impacting the Church,” Chris Railey, executive director of Influence Resources, highlights emerging developments all pastors, preachers and church leaders should track.
Beth Backes takes on a topic that should concern all church leaders in “#ChurchToo.” Sexual misconduct is prevalent in every segment of our society, and she reminds us the Church is not immune. Backes, director of pastoral care for the Northwest Ministry Network of the AG in Snoqualmie, Washington, outlines three changes we must make now.
This issue’s Multipliers section features four individuals whose small steps of big faith are helping grow the Kingdom. You’ll read about Joe Franco, a youth pastor in Portland, Oregon, who also volunteers as a coach in the local public school system; Hope Danzl, a teen from Melrose, Minnesota, who is boldly representing Jesus in her high school; Josh Wellborn, the newly appointed Assemblies of God national youth director; and Severin “Sevo” Lwali, who came to the U.S. from Kenya to attend college and now serves as director of Chi Alpha International.
