Evening Main Speaker
7:15 p.m. & Sabbath Sermon
Tuesday, – Sabbath, June 9-13, 2020
Retired Pastor Bill Kilgore will be speaking to our theme: Back to the Basics: Primitive Godliness. His goal is to focus each night on one of the unique beliefs God has given us as a church to share with the world–not just how we teach those beliefs, but how we live them and how God uses them to enrich our lives.
Bill Kilgore completed his undergraduate work in 1976 at Columbia Union College in Takoma Park, MD; the Masters of Divinity from Andrews University in Berrien Springs, MI in 1980; and the Doctor of Ministry degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, TX in 2003.
Pastor Kilgore had been a district pastor as well as a Campus Chaplain at Shenandoah Valley Academy before coming to Southwestern Adventist University in 1989. For twenty-nine years he taught Ethics, Greek, Homiletics, and SDA Church History as well as leading out each summer in the Field School of Evangelism for Southwestern. His passion is preaching and assisting students on campus and church leaders in local congregations who believe God has called them to proclaim His love and His coming in these last days of earth’s history.
He retired in July 2018 and was granted the honorary academic rank of Professor Emeritus by the board of Southwestern Adventist University in September 2018. His wife Leslie (SVA 1973) was the school nurse for the Keene Independent School District for 27 years before retiring in 2016.
They have two daughters and their families who live near them.
Day Main Speaker
9:30 am. & 11:00 a.m.
Wednesday – Friday, June 10-12, 2020
Lucas is a lay evangelist and a member of the international ministry Holy Spirit Ministries who lives in Williams Lake, British Columbia, Canada. He is passionate about sharing the messages of experiencing the supreme love of God, the daily baptism of the Holy Spirit, and righteousness by faith in the present truth messages of the three angels of Revelation 14. His purpose is to prepare men, women, boys, and girls of all nations for the very soon coming of Jesus while there is but precious little time left, to inspire and compel them to then share these truths with others, thus hastening the soon coming of Jesus!
His reason is simply this:
2 Corinthians 5:14-15 “For the love of Christ compels [me], because [I] judge thus: that if One died for [me], then [I] died; and He died for [me], that [I] who live should live no longer for [myself], but for Him who died for [me] and rose again.”
He travels extensively worldwide, wherever God calls him: including India (multiple times), Vanuatu, Australia, the Philippines, Burundi, and Zambia Africa, Czech Republic, many places across Canada (including British Columbia Camp Meeting), and the United States sharing the supreme love of God for His people that He has chosen and called by His own name. He trains church leaders and members alike in Christ’s method of evangelism.
“Ask the Expert” every day at 2:00 p.m.

Thursday: “Mental Health Awareness”
Prevention Services Coordinator at Northwestern Community Services Board, with over 10 years of experience, preventing substance misuse and suicide and promoting mental wellness. Mental Health First Aid Instructor; ACES interface Master Trainer.
Did you know that life expectancy in the United States has been dropping for a number of years? Increases in drug overdoses and suicides have been directly linked to that decline. These “deaths from despair” indicate that there are people all around us who are hurting. 1 Peter 3:8 calls us to be “like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble.” This presentation aims to begin a discussion on how we can better connect, empathize and give hope to those who are struggling.

Friday: “Creating Food and Lifestyle Habits for Better Behavior and Performance.“
Dr. Kelli F. Hanon is a pediatrician in Harrisonburg, Virginia. She received her medical degree from Loma Linda University School of Medicine and has been in practice for about 25 years. Pediatricians treat children, infants, and adolescents. They are trained to meet the unique needs of children through all of their developmental stages as they grow and mature.
This session is for soon-to-be-parents, parents, and grandparents. We will cover the basic diet and nutrition, sleep, and exercise habits for each age group from toddlers through early adults that are the first steps to dealing with discipline/behavior problems, mood disorders, and focus and learning problems in school. These are all frequent complaints that I see in my pediatric patients. All require a look at the individual’s lifestyle – the whole person. Join us to learn more!
Free to those in need: Our community outreach for 2020 Valley Tent Revival is to focus on several free services to our local community. On Wednesday through Friday afternoons, we will offer manicures, dental advice, and vision checks for free. We will provide more detailed information when we get closer to the event.
