Experiencing the Heart of Jesus
Arlington » People of all ages enjoyed “The Heart of Jesus” DFW 1:1 event held at the Arlington Seventh-day Adventist Church. The event’s purpose was to help people, especially next generations, deepen their relationship with Jesus, and foster positive relationships with their community.
“It was refreshing to be in a space with people, young and mature, who were excited to hear and speak about Jesus,” stated Lola Moore Johnston, South Central Conference young adult ministries director.
Johnston was among the featured speakers that included David Franklin, senior pastor of the Miracle City church in Baltimore, Maryland, and co-host of Hope Channel’s Let’s Pray; and Alex Bryan, senior pastor of the Walla Walla University church in College Place, Washington.
Following the general sessions, the event offered time for participants to process their thoughts on the various presentations/reflections, and to begin engaging in practical applications.
"I was immensely blessed by my experience at DFW 1:1,” Cece Cobb, a 27-year-old software engineer from Dallas, Texas, shared. “The speakers were dynamic and the messages thought-provoking...Each session concluded with honest and heartfelt conversations about how we as individuals, and as a community, could more fully develop the heart of Jesus."
DFW 1:1 also offered generation One (ages 13-17) and TOP kids (ages 4-12) to help bring teens and children into a closer relationship with Jesus through fun, interactive activities and social events.
