The Trans-European Division (TED) leaders and South England Conference (SEC) workers, ministers and directors shared a Sabbath together in Bečići, Montenegro on Friday and Saturday, 11-12 November 2016.

Enjoying the viewOver 160 SEC workers, gathering for their Workers Meeting from 6-13 November, and TED the Executive Committee, conducting their annual Year-end Meetings 11-15 November, celebrated the sanctity of the Sabbath and all the benefits that came with the restful day.

It was obvious to notice the positive interaction between the two groups leading the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

The two Sabbath services saw Derek Morris, president of Hope Channel, firing up the church leaders to tell the truth about Jesus and to long for a ministry filled with miracles.

It did not take long for attendees to collaborate and create a choir to lead the congregation through the powerful theme song, “Facing a Task Unfinished”.
