As of January 1, 2012 Multi-Cultural Ministry went to new heights as they went out from under Home Missions to working directly under Bro. David K. Bernard. The Hanscom’s have a new office located on the second floor of the UPCI headquarters building in Hazelwood, MO. As clearly seen in these pictures Bro. and Sis Hanscom are very happy about the new structure of the ministry. Deaf Ministry is one of the many multi-cultural ministries under Bro. Hanscom. Pray for our leaders as they take us to new heights this year.
Bro. Wesley Swanson, coordinated a tremendous Deaf Leadership Training last week. The 28 Deaf and HH (from various states) were completely engaged as they asked the panel many serious questions about the ministerial license procedure. The class has already been set Jan 23rd-25th 2013. Start making plans to attend now as the class will fill up quickly.
