Evangelism—The Michigan Conference is committed, by God's grace, to proclaiming the everlasting gospel in the context of the three angels’ messages of Revelation 14. Following Jesus’ method, our evangelistic strategy and aim is to Grow Michigan churches through a five-stage evangelistic process that includes: (1) preparing the soil of the heart with friendship and compassionate service, (2) planting the seeds of God’s Word with literature, (3) cultivating spiritual interests with Bible studies, (4) harvesting decisions for Christ and the truth with public evangelistic meetings, and (5) preserving new members with ongoing discipleship.
Wes Peppers currently serves as the Associate Ministerial Director and Evangelism Coordinator for the Michigan Conference. He previously served as the Personal Ministries Director. Prior to that, he served as Senior Pastor of the Lansing SDA Church as well as the Traverse City/Kalkaska churches. He has also served as Global AFCOE Director and evangelist at Amazing Facts. He became a Seventh-Day Adventist Christian at the age of 22 after being an atheist/agnostic for several years. As a two type cancer survivor while in his 20’s, he has a powerful testimony of God’s goodness and a renewed passion for His message. His greatest desire is to lead people into a deeper, intimate relationship with Jesus Christ to become faithful disciples who share Him with others. His highest ministry is being a husband to his wife Marion and father to his children Levi and Liana.
